Consider spatial resolution

+1 vote
I would really appreciate making yEd "aware" of spatial resolution.

At the moment I really enjoy the control I have over the layout of the graph but I find it really difficult to produce an image where I can control the physical size of the objects.

I have a rather large graph which is to be embedded to a poster and become about 80cm wide.

Ideally, I would like to be able to control the size of the graphical elements (font size, node width and height, edge width, etc) in physical units (e.g. mm) by setting a rasterisation resolution (e.g. 300 dpi) from the preferences window. At the moment, I am doing the transformations manually and I must say it is really difficult, primarily because of the size of the graph, both in number of nodes but also physical size.

Looking forward to a more spatial resolution aware yEd :)

When printing at (user-defined) scaling of 1, then 72 space units will be 1 inch (or 2.54cm) on the print out.

Please see what is scaling, and does it effect margins and created graph size for a more detailed explanation.
