How to export the Gantt Chart

In this tutorial, we will explain the different options to  export the Gantt Chart. This dialog is the starting point and can be reached from the right click menu in the Gantt Chart -> Export Gantt.  


The range determines the time scale that will be rendered. From and untill dates can be set in three different ways:

  • Currently visible window: use the time frame that is currently set in the Gantt Chart.  
  • Complete project: scale the Gantt Chart to fit the complete project.
  • Custom range: specify the from and until date manually. 


This gives you the option  to render the Gantt Chart in different parts, making it possible to have higher resolutions per image. You can split in two dimensions: number of activities or number of days. The options available are:

  • No split: do not split the result into multiple images.
  • Split every number of rows: the number of images will be equal to the number of activities divided by this setting
  • Split every number of days: the number of images will be equal to the number of days set in the range, divided by this setting


These options influence the look and feel of the resulting images. The options are:

  • Grid width: the number of pixels to use for the grid part of the Gantt Chart. Use the  button to fetch the current grid width.
  • Gantt Style: Specify the gantt style.


These settings influence the resolution of the resulting image(s). The resolution is set by the horizontal number of pixels per day, and the vertical number of pixels per task. 

  • Current settings: use the current settings
  • Custom settings: change the settings manually
  • Fit to format: use this option if you know the dimension you want, and you want the resolution to scale accordinly. 


Were do you want to store the resulting image? There are two options:

  • Clipboard: copy the image to the clipboard. This options cannot be used when splitting is applied!
  • File: specify the complete path to a bmp file. When splitting is applied, this filename is used as the basename, and suffices are applied to each sequential image. For instance, if you specify "C:\Temp\export.bmp", following image files are generated: C:\Temp\export.bmp, C:\Temp\export_1.bmp, C:\Temp\export_2.bmp, ....
