Print a workflow in KNIME 5.2

How can I print a workflow in KNIME 5.2 like it was possible in KNIME 4.7 (choose File/print)?

Hello @dbc,

I believe eclipse may have some restrictions here for printing directly to pdf.

The closest option I can think of is to just grab the ‘workflow.svg’ from the root folder of your workflow and convert that to a PDF.

(You can find them inside your working directory you specified)

Let me know if you have any other questions,


Hello TL,

thank you for your reply. Taking the SVG file is a good solution, but unfortunately this file is not available for the metanodes and components and I absolutely need them. In addition, the file is not cropped like the export as SVG in version 4.7, so I have empty areas around the workflow and would have to rework each SVG.
I need the printouts to provide documentation of the workflows as a PDF. I think I will then continue working with version 4.7, can you tell me how long this version, respectively the Classic User Interface in 5.3 will still be supported?

Best regards,

Give an option like Jpeg or Png, in SVG the background area becoming black.

You can convert the svg into a jpg or png with gimp (free), for example. As I am not allowed to install any software on my computer, I open the file in my browser and print it as a png file with pdf24.
