How to export large diagram to multiple page PDF?

0 votes

this question is related to another question (http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/8702/how-to-break-a-flow-chart-to-multiple-pages-for-export-to-pdf?show=8705#a8705), but the answer you can find there are still unclear to me.

using automatic splitting works, but how to control which part of a large diagram will be on each page of the pdf, need further explanantion, preferably with screenshots or a video.

If someone can show how I can export this diagram https://www.dropbox.com/s/nr1afny33x8roxl/Huidige%20sollicitatie%20flow.graphml?dl=0 to a readable pdf (+/- 8 pages?), please go ahead! i prefer screenshots or video instead of written instructions...

Thx already

I found a work-around:

(1) Resize the window to show only the portion of the diagram you wish to go on a page.

(2) In PDF Export, Clipping tab, choose the Visible Region for the export.

(3) Repeat (1) and (2) to get all the individual pages.

(4) Combine these pages into one PDF document.
