This article covers how to generate a file out of your Gantt chart and also some workarounds for know issues that may happen.

How to export a Gantt chart

There is an "Export" button at the top right corner. You can select the file extension you prefer. Most users prefer to export it as PDF to be able to send it to other people or print it.

Before exporting it, it's recommended to customize the print area depending on what you would like to see in the exported file, like hiding checklist items, columns, etc., otherwise the file may become too large.

What if I don't see the export

The first thing you like to check is your pop-up blocker, the export will open in a pop-up. Your browser or a third-party pop-up blocker might have blocked this pop-up.

Enable the pop-up or disable your pop-up blocker for placker.com and export.dhtmlx.com to make sure you can download the exports.

I would like to print the pdf on multiple papers / Really big

When using Adobe ready, you can use the print option 'Poster' to print the pdf to multiple pages. Then you can also set the zoom level to change the number of pages to print on.

This page explains how to set this in this client:

The scale is too light gray and doesn't look good

You can set the scale to a darker font to improve the readability for printing.
