Export > Picture

Via the menu "File => Export => Picture..." you may create image files of your Nassi Shneiderman diagrams in several image file formats.

Currently the following formats are supported:

  • PNG
  • EMF
  • SWF
  • EMG
  • PDF
  • SVG

From version 3.24-15 on, PNG files are exported with transparent background.

On exporting to PNG, you may split the image of a (large) diagram into a matrix of several files. After selecting menu item "PNG (multiple) ..." you will be asked for a number of columns and a number of rows. The naming of the generated file depends on the Structorizer version as follows:

Since release 3.25, the file names will be generated with a two-dimensional numbering, making clear how the image is divided into the tiles and which file contains what part. Both row and column index are added as two-digit decimal numbers counting up from 00, e.g. if you selected a file name "myDiagram.nsd" and decided to split the image into a matrix of 2 columns and 3 rows, then the files would be named and associated to the image sections according to the following scheme:

myDiagram-00-00.png myDiagram-00-01.png
myDiagram-01-00.png myDiagram-01-01.png
myDiagram-02-00.png myDiagram-02-01.png

To compensate rounding problems, the files of the last column and the last row may be some pixels larger than the others lest there should be losses.

Prior to release 3.25, the generated files were continuously numbered, columns first, e.g. if you exported an NSD with name "myDiagram.nsd" and decided to split the image into a matrix of 2 columns and 3 rows, then the files would have been named and associated to the image sections according to the following scheme:

myDiagram-0.png myDiagram-1.png
myDiagram-2.png myDiagram-3.png
myDiagram-4.png myDiagram-5.png
