Hi folks,

I'm a relatively new Papyrus user running Eclipse 2019-12 on MacOS High Sierra 10.13. My project is using the SysML 1.6 add-on. I exported my project's diagrams by right-clicking the model root under Project Explorer and choosing Export --> Export All Diagrams... and tried both PNG and PDF formats. The result looks correct except for the fonts, which appear to be a different and much larger typeface. Under Eclipse preferences --> Papyrus --> Diagrams, I tried changing the default font setting, but it had no effect on the on-screen display or the exported PDFs.

Here are some screen shots showing what I mean. The first one is a diagram in the editor, while the second is of an exported PNG of the same diagram. The font looks completely different, and larger, so it gets chopped off which renders the exported product unusable.

I know Papyrus can be a bit quirky, so before I file a bug report--am I overlooking something? Is there perhaps a setting I'm not aware of?

I found an old bug report but am not sure that it's the same thing.

Thank you so much!

GJ

you are not alone, we discovered this bug some weeks ago. I don't think we already filled a bug for that. We are investigating on it.

If you are using Windows, which value did you set to your dpi ? are you in 100%.

Regards,

I have a Windows installation that works better at 100% scaling; although the font appears different (bolder), nothing is chopped off.

The screenshots above, where the fonts are cut off in the exported files, are from Eclipse 2019-12 running under MacOS 10.13 on a 15" Retina Macbook Pro with a 2880-1800 display set to look like 1920x1200. It seems that a completely different typeface is being used for export vs. display.

Thanks!

I have the same porblem
I'm running on Kubuntu 18.04
EclipseVersion: 3.18.100.v20190916-1045
Build id: I20190916-1045

The PNG output seems to pick a larger font and clips text. SVG has a small font, pdf is about right
