Exporting image file


Usually, when I finish a drawing or model in Vectorworks I export it as a PDF but now I need to export it as an image file. This is going to sound a bit stupid but how do I export an image file as the size I want it? My page size is set to A3 already and I find that with exporting an image file it doesn't follow the constraints of the page. I tried to set the dimensions to A3 page size and export it said something about it being a huge file and then the program crashed. (screenshots attached of what I wanted to export in the program vs what came out)

Hi Sade


During the exportation, in the window (Export Image File) you need to select this option "Marquee" and press button Draw Marquee, to "Draw" the area in your Design Layer that you want export. 


Follows the option in attach.
