  4. Select the image format at the bottom of window.Notes:
    1. There are two options for exporting as PNG files – with and without background:
    – With background: export diagram’s background color.
    – Without background:  ignore the background color by exporting transparent background.2. You can export diagrams to native PDF format. Since the exported PDF is of a small size, it can save a lot of space. Also, because the diagram in PDF is a vector, it is scalable. There are two export options:
    – PDF(diagram per page): selected diagrams will be exported to the same PDF file. Each diagram will occupy one page.
    – PDF(diagram per file): each diagram will be exported in one new PDF file.
  5. Specify the filename of the image file.
  6. Click Save to export.
