plot saving doesn't copy actual plot

Description

When an analysis is saved, the png screen shots appear to be scaled or contain substituted fonts from what is actually shown on the screen. The saving program should capture the actual screen on the desktop and not modify it before saving. The user should be able to modify any plot and expect it to be saved in that modified format without additional changes. The saved plot should be an exact replica screenshot of the plot data on the screen. Attached are a couple of actual plots and versions that were saved. It is obvious that they are different.

Analysis programs mods now save a PNG version of plots along with SVG. Reporter uses the PNG version. Various mods attempt to insure that plot settings are reflected in the saved files.

Review-ready.

This works as advertised now. I tested multiple custom mods and they all look nice now, both in the report and the saved png files, just as they should. Ticket will be closed.
