Can't export image file

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I always export as an image file, and just recently, when I tried to export it, the dialogue did not show up. I have to exit VW, and open it up again, but when I draw the marquee around the drawing, nothing shows up after it. I keep on pressing the button, but it just won't show up. It has worked just fine till now.

Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? Or what happened to my VW?

Edit: I have VW 2012, Educational Edition

Many thanks,

Luffles

Hi,

I drew a small square on the page, but it still wouldn't export as an image file.

Thank you for taking your time to reply. I really appreciate it.

how big does it say the file will be when you press the update button in the image export dialog box?

maybe try changing the DPI, or the compression settings.

have you tried different file formats.... jpg, tiff etc?

only other thing i can suggest is to PDF it and then if you really need as an image file, save it as a jpg from the PDF

I've go the same issue here. First boot of vectorworks i can get to the dialog window for image export, when i select and area for export the dialog does not open back up. Once i've done this once i can't even open the image export dialog box. I have to reboot my mac to get back to step one. vectorworks never crashes or freezes during the process.
