I'm just wondering about this. I will be giving a presentation where I will be using a JMP Journal as my main presentation vehicle. I'd like to save output from the analyses to a second journal to show how easy it is to create a report, PowerPoint file, HTML, etc? Right now, when I Ctrl-J the output goes to my active 'Presentation' journal. Am I missing something here? Thanks.
In order to do what you desire I believe that somehow you would need to include the data table in the new Journal so that you can keep the Journal where you want to save your work active. If you do this then it should work as you describe.
