How do I print a diagram in IDT

I'm working in Information Design Tool , designing universes ; I wish to PRINT my diagrams.

I fail to understand why SAP's product designers cannot comprehend that users will need to perform basic everyday functions like this.

If I create a document in Word , I might want to PRINT it.

If I receive an email in Outlook , I might want to PRINT it.

If I create an ER Diagram in Powerdesigner or ERwin , I might want to PRINT it.

PRINT

Why is this impossible in IDT ?

    In data foundation, under Master view tab, two buttons right to the Families drop down list, there's a "Save View as Image" button.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    • We are on 4.1 SP6 Patch 4. When I click the "Save View as Image" button, choose a file location and name and click save it does not give me any sort of confirmation it did the job, but it does save a .png file for me. I am not sure what to tell you.

      Doesn't work . It churns out a report - which I don't want - but no diagram.

      HOW do I PRINT a DIAGRAM.? (That's the picture thing with boxes and lines on it . . . )
