Using Edge, Brave, an IE browsers, the Export to Image (.pgn or .svg) never completes. In fact, nothing happens at all.
I just tried it on Edge, both PNG & SVG export worked OK. (note there is a 5 to 10 second pause before the image is ready for download)
I did it on this project which I have set as public so you can try my schematic and see if the problem is specific to your schematic.
Same here, @PaulHutch.
I’ll mention it to the Scheme-it Gurus; maybe we can add an indicator letting people know the ‘Export to Image’ is in process.
@JohnM3, are you still seeing the image generation not occurring on your end?
PaulHutch, your simple schematic worked ok with Brave, so I suspect one of two issues:
- my diagram has a number of images, relatively large compared to simple symbols like resistors. The image making function may be choking on the larger sizes.
- my internet connection is very low bandwidth just now (I’m on a boat). There may be a timeout occurring, although I can load my project and edit it.
Yes, it is still not working. Once I got a file to save, but it had zero bytes of content.
@JohnM3 - would you mind sharing the link or name of your project? I’ll see if the Scheme-it team can find the source of the issue.
This issue is related to the images in the schematic. The Scheme-it team is working on a fix to the export feature.
Thank you for your patients as we get this resolved.
I figured. I really appreciate you and your team’s responsiveness!
Same here. I just tried to export to .png. Nothing happened at all. Maybe the same issue as JohnM3.
@jlnims - would you mind sharing the name or link to your project so the Scheme-it team can review whether this is the same issue or not?
Thanks for responding! Here’s the link: https://www.digikey.com/schemeit/project/ss-vox-controller-for-tube-xcvr-fa4aa42b79ad49c88db4c193256043ad/
Feel free to look it over and analyze why it doesn’t export to an image file.
Paul, I just tried to export your file to an svg file and nothing happened. Here are my specs:
Mac Mini running OS Monterey 12.6
M1 Metal processor
Maybe Safari; OS; or processor. I’ll try another browser.
OK. I just tried it on Chrome. Worked quickly and perfectly. It must be Safari.
Thanks for the feedback, @jlnims. We will have the team look into possible issues when exporting in Safari.
Scheme-it has recently added an export indicator.
After choosing your export format, export area, and clicking the “Export” button; “Exporting…” text along with an animation and the option to cancel will be shown in the pop-up.
This indicates the export format is currently being generated.
Note that the process does take longer for large projects and projects containing many images.
I had similar problems with saving my project, exporting as pdf, or as png file. This happened in Google chrome and MS Edge. Finally I printed the page under Chrome settings. Feedback has already been done.
