Any way to get draw.io vector graphics in Scroll PDF export in Confluence Cloud
I have been struggling to get draw.io vector graphics in my Scroll PDF export, using Confluence Cloud. I have tried various approaches, but have not been successful.
- I have tried exporting as SVG and include the files directly: No luck, the svg exported from draw.io is non standard with respect to text, so texts are not transferred correctly.
- I have tried exporting PDF and include them, but this will include either a link or the macro pdf preview, not the actual content.
Anyone that knows how to make it work?
Alternatively, does anyone know how to make draw.io automatically increase the resolution of the generated PNG (that Scroll Exporter grabs), so one does not have to do it manually?
Sorry, I didn't see a notification for this, for some reason. We're tracking as https://trello.com/c/VionAQLn/70-export-in-higher-res-for-scroll-pdf-output. We haven't resolved yet, but it's due for another look shortly.
My observation: Opening a draw IO drawing in Confluence, and clicking "save and exit", will now attach a preview with double the "DPI" of the previous version (double resolution in both dimensions). This preview would appear to be included in the Scroll PDF export. The result is a much improved quality of the drawing when printed.
I am very happy with this! It is a good solution, and will, in practice, make it much more feasible to include Draw IO drawings directly in exported PDF's.
If there is a wishlist or similar somewhere, I could wish for
* Very good solution: Ability to control the resolution (dpi?), perhaps on a global or item-by-item basis.
* Perfect solution: Somehow get a standard SVG and embed it in the PDF export.
But, current solution is a huge improvement. Thanks a lot!
