In Topic: Exporting wallchart produces error message

10 May 2018 - 07:11 AM

Greek or 'greeked' pictures is an old DTP term for extremely-low resolution pix used in schematic layouts. They're similar to the ones RM produces (with red squiggles) before the Export process. No offence intended to any Greek readers (να τα εκατοστήσετε = may you live to be 100). I tried XnView but that opens the chart with Greek pix.  See my reply to Renee Zamora above for more about what I'm doing and where I'm going wrong...

OK, I looked closer and XnView no longer displays .EMF's correctly, like Paint does. (I guess due to recent updates?)

If you have Microsoft Powerpoint, here's an exercise in the power of .EMF files:


List of programs that can open .emf files:

Export to BMP saves them with Greek pix.

Not sure what you mean by "Greek pix"? It works fine!

Export to EMF saves them with high-def pix into Paint but that's not read-only so any cursor click will produce lines and squiggles on the image.

RootsMagic FIRST saves the file. Then, it opens the Windows-associated program for viewing each file-type. My .EMF viewer is XnView. Even if it opens into Paint and clicking on it produces lines and squiggles... as long as YOU do not do a SAVE file operation, then the file RootsMagic saved earlier remains intact.

Export to JPG, PCX, PNG, PGA produces the error message "RMC_EXP.BMP contains an invalid path"

I'm unable to reproduce this. All formats work as advertised.
