How to Share a Diagram

Share or export a Diagram

Depending on your needs, you have several options to share or export diagrams:

1. Share the diagram with other Visual Expert users

This option allows anyone connected to your VE project to download a copy of the diagram in his Visual Expert client, to leverage the features of the VE UI: diagram synchronized with source code, code exploration, etc.

  • Select the parent item of the diagram ("Department" in this example)
  • Right-click - Select "Create view from selection"
    Create a view from Visual Expert diagram
  • This will isolate the diagram in a separate view (tabpage)
  • Right-click on the tab name - Select "Share this View":
