Export shapes with description

0 votes

I've added description to a shape node with the properties view and when I export the complete document, I only see the shape nodes with text but without description.

I'm using the 3.14.3 version of yEd.

I hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance

The "Description" field in the "Data" section of the properties view is used to specify tool tip texts for elements in yEd. I.e. the "Description" is displayed when you hover with the mouse cursor over an element in yEd. If you want to have interactive tool tips in an exported diagram as well, you need to choose SVG/SVGZ, HTML Flash Viewer, or HTML ImageMap as export format.
