Exporting a Diagram

Diagrams can be exported to various image formats. dbForge Studio supports the following formats for diagram export: bmp, jpg, gif, png, tif, emf.

To export a diagram to an image, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click the diagram and select Export to Image on the shortcut menu.
  2. Specify the target file name and image format.
  3. Click the Save button.

Exporting Large Diagrams

Bitmap generating engine needs contiguous memory area for the bitmap. If the diagram is large, it is not always possible even if you have enough memory because of memory fragmentation. When such a problem occurs, you will get the following error: “The error occurred while diagram exporting. Probably the image is oversized. Try export to another format”. This error occurs when exporting diagrams of about 10 000 x 10 000 pixels size and sometimes even with a smaller diagram.

What can be done:

  1. Export the diagram to the vector format (emf).
  2. Use third-party RAM defragmentation and applications optimization.
  3. You may want to try to restart the application and export the diagram again.
