How to export Pspice's plots as a vector file?

Hello, I'm a electronics engineering student new to simulation sofwares.

I'm using Orcad's Capture (Pspice) to make simulations.
It only has 'print' option that leads to system print prompt, and I can only print to pdf.
I want to export the plot as a image or vector, like matlab's plot function. How can I do that?

Thanks.

Can't you write a filter that reads a PDF file and outputs the desired format?

Edit simulation profile, select the Data Collection tab, enable "Save data in the CDSF format".

Rerun your simulation. You'll now find a <simulation_name>.csd file in your SCHEMATIC.<simulation_ name> folder...

The file is the plot data and will look something like.... but I can't tell you how to interpret that - the question seems to have been asked many times but I've not found any answers...
