Exporting Tree Image

edited November 2018 in Help

I have a process that in the end results in a big decision tree. I'd like to export this picture to be printed on an A4 paper, but the "Save Image" function of RapidMiner just prints whatever part of the tree is visualized at the moment and not the whole.

How do I save the full picture at a nice resolution?

    you can do that with the reporting extension. Just play around with the settings until you're satisfied.
    I created an example process:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <process version="5.1.008">
      <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="5.1.008" expanded="true" name="Root">
        <process expanded="true" height="584" width="815">
          <operator activated="true" class="retrieve" compatibility="5.1.008" expanded="true" height="60" name="Retrieve" width="90" x="45" y="30">
            <parameter key="repository_entry" value="//Samples/data/Golf"/>
          <operator activated="true" class="decision_tree" compatibility="5.1.008" expanded="true" height="76" name="DecisionTree" width="90" x="179" y="30"/>
          <operator activated="true" class="reporting:generate_report" compatibility="5.0.002" expanded="true" height="76" name="Generate Report" width="90" x="313" y="30">
            <parameter key="report_name" value="Hello Report!"/>
            <parameter key="format" value="HTML"/>

            <parameter key="pdf_template_file" value="no file selected"/>

            <parameter key="section_five_font" value="courier"/>
            <parameter key="text_content_font" value="courier"/>
          <operator activated="true" class="reporting:report" compatibility="5.0.002" expanded="true" height="60" name="Report" width="90" x="447" y="30">

    Hi my name is Daniel and I am new here.

    For my master theesis I work with Rapidminer and I am pretty happy with it.

    But there is one question left. Is it possible to change the background color of an exported disicion tree?

    Every change endet in no result. I always get the tree image whith a white background.

    It would be nice if you can give me a short answer.

    Thank you very much.

    no that is not possible. However I'm sure that almost every graphics software available is capable of doing so ;)
