as Willem writes, you can always to a screen shot so this is not very urgent (even though that is then bound to the screen resolution). Depending on what you intend to do with it, PDF would probably best for printing while some pixel based format would be best to post on social media and the like. In an ideal world where every program knows how to handle it, SVG would be preferable since it is resolution independent.

For text/data output, I guess, csv would be most useful for further processing. Although I personally like using it, TeX output (you could spit out a TeX table) has the usual disadvantage that you need to install a huge software package to be able to make use of it if you have not done so already. And yes, besides the electronic version of my log, I print each dive using the TeX export to keep a paper log as well. Except I have not really dived in recent months.
