Exporting active diagram as image

You can export the opening diagram to image file. To export the active diagram as an image file:

  1. Select Project > Export > Active Diagram as Image... from toolbar.
  2. In the Save window, set the image quality. The higher the quality, the clearer the image, the larger the image size.
    Set image quality
    Set image quality
  3. Select the image format at the bottom of window.
    NOTE: There are two options for exporting as PNG files - with and without background:
    - With background: export diagram's background color.
    - Without background: ignore the background color by exporting transparent background.
    NOTE: You can export diagrams to native PDF format. Since the exported PDF is of a small size, it can save a lot of space.
    Also, because the diagram in PDF is a vector, it is scalable. There are two export options:
    - PDF(diagram per page): selected diagrams will be exported to the same PDF file. Each diagram will occupy one page.
    - PDF(diagram per file): each diagram will be exported in one new PDF file.
  4. Specify the filename.
  5. Click Save to export.
