Description aderda 2008-08-06 17:29:25 UTC
Blank file is a result of Export as Image if "Selected Objects Only" was no unchecked, before exporting whole diagram.
To reproduce:
- create any kind of diagram (for example a class diagram with some classes)
- select an object (option "Selected Objects Only" in Export as Image dialog becomes available)
- export to any file
- deselect objects on the diagram (option "Selected Objects Only" in Export as Image dialog becomes unavailable, but it
is still checked)
- export to any file (with or without "Visible Window Only" checked)
- the last created file is blank

This is indeed a bug in 6.1 release. In 6.5, the entire diagram drawing part has been re-written, 'Selected Objects
Only' checkbox was removed from UI panel due to lack of API support in visual graph library, and the feedback seemed to
suggest that the option was not very helpful. Given the schedule and resources, this feature is unlikely to be
implemented in coming release unless convincing counterarguments are presented.

Comment 2 Yang Su 2008-08-27 20:06:52 UTC
"Selected Objects Only" feature has been taken out from 6.5, there is an enhancement request ( issue 143213 ) filed on
graphic library. Close this one as WONTFIX.
