inconsistent export to PDF & SVG

Hi,

I have been looking at the export features of the diagramming component, unfortunately there appears to be some inconsistencies with the output.

This is a screengrab...



firstly comparing this to the PDF version, the line styles don't appear to he been exported properly, there are no dashed lines, and the grid hasn't been exported.

The SVG has more problems... The node images bleed outside of the node shape, the link text is wrongly positioned, and some of the text is truncated, i.e. "Orifice" has been truncated to "Orific"

I've attached both the PDF and SVG exported files for your reference.

Cheers,

Pete

Hi Slavcho,

It's not the same diagram, but I've attached the XML file.

Edit: I figured out why the grid wasn't plotting with the PDF exporter, I needed to set PDFExporter.EnableGrid to true.

Cheers,

Pete

Apparently PdfExporter does not support custom dash patterns at this time. As a work-around, you could export a copy of the diagram where they are replaced with standard dash or dot styles -

Code
Select All
diagram.LoadFromXml("QSTest.xml");
var exportCopy = diagram.Clone();
foreach (var link in exportCopy.Links)
{
    if (link.Pen.DashPattern != null)
    {
        link.Pen.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dash;
        link.Pen.DashPattern = null;
    }
}
var pdfex = new PdfExporter();
pdfex.Export(exportCopy, "test.pdf");

Thanks, did you manage to have a look at the issues with the SVGExporter?

Cheers,

Pete
