You are not the only one, who does this. Me and all my colleges, who
usually produce lenghty output do the same.
As far as I have tried, draft output is no good substitute for the
ordinary output listings of versions up to 6.
Admittedly I tried SPSS 8 only for some hours. Then I decided to
switch back to 6.
I would strongly appreciate, if the old output format was reintroduced
as one option!
There was another problem I could not solve: in lower versions charts
are stored in the SPSS-cht-format, so you can first produce a lot of
them, and later, if you need one or the other, you can change the
format of this few.
In SPSS8 it seemed not possible to store charts in a format that can
be worked with like the original cht-format.
