Export gantt over multiple pages in pdf

(Rupert Young) #1

When I export to pdf my gantt is scrunched up on page, like this,

Is it possible to display the gantt so that it takes up the width of the page, and extends over multiple pages so that it is legible?

Choose A0 paper size and tile the result with PDF tiling tools (e.g. Adobe Reader can do tiling)

I saw a post on that, isn’t that for printing?
in the pdf it is still on one page.

Do you mean that you need the same PDF, but with multiple pages, and don’t need to print it?

GanttProject always produces chart on a single PDF page, sorry. You can still use bigger page size and tile the result using tiling tools, but that certainly makes the process of building the result PDF way more annoying.

I have submitted a new enhancement request to the tracker: https://github.com/bardsoftware/ganttproject/issues/1642

Yes, to share the pdf. Thanks.

I might try printing to a pdf file, but the tiling just reduces the size as far as I can see.

You need to export from GanttProject using A0 paper size, open it in Reader and then tile. I don’t think that you need to change the tile scale.
