Export/Save PERT Chart

(Ben Munro) #1

Hi all/@DmitryBarashev

Is there a way to export or save one of the PERT Charts as a PDF/PNG?

Export to PNG exports the chart which is currently open in the application. If you need PERT chart, make its tab contents visible.

Thank you @DmitryBarashev!

When I try this I get a heap space error. How can I resolve that?

If you’re on Windows, you can add more memory to Java Runtime by editing ganttproject.l4j.ini file in the GanttProject installation folder. Here is the default file contents:

# GanttProject runtime options

If you replace -Xmx512m with e.g. -Xmx2048m you will allow for using 4 times more memory when you launch GanttProject next time. It may or may not fix the issue, because it actually depends on how big is the chart.

Thanks, that worked.
