How to export entire Entity Diagram?
Question

Hi

I know there is the button export entity to Image, but that option literally only print screen, it doesn't get the entire Entity Diagram, so my question is is there a way for me to export or capture the image of my entity diagram completely? Any external software....

thank you

You can try to zoom out and click export again? You will be able to capture the whole thing.

Alternatively, you can explore https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/159/outdoc

where you can export it as a document which will contain the entity's information. (with a lot of other stuff)

Hi Norman In,

If you open your entity diagram and navigate to Module / Export in the top menu, you'll have the possibility there to export the diagram as image (PNG). 

Please refer below link

Hope this will help you :)

Hi Norman,

Unfortunately, this isn't possible. As you found out, it only saves the current view port (scroll bars and all).

Hi Norman,

Not knowing how big your entity diagram is, one more thing you can try, in addition to zooming out a bit, is to use the auto-arrange feature that is demonstrated here to try fitting your diagram inside the viewport.

Hello Norman,


Yes you are correct it only prints whatever is displaying in your screen. I also have similar issue. What I did was, I dragged every entity in ER diagrams canvas, arranged it properly to make it understandable, then used Ctrl- to decrease the size of image and then exported it.

Try in this way.
