Hi Everyone, Anyone who has completed their assignment with Rose please tell me how you were able to capture an image of the rose diagrams. I copy paste the image but with 15-16 objects in my diagram .. the image with the sequence flow becomes very minitarised. I am still figuring how to enlarge the image so that it is possible to read everything clearly. Thanks Please help! Dhiren
I had the same problem. I'm using RR2003, and am not sure about other versions - but here are three solutions for you in order of my own preference. The first and second are independent of version in all likelihood. 1) DO a ctrl-A, Ctrl-C to select and copy all the objects in the Rose diagram to the clipboard. Paste into some graphics editor that accepts window�s meta files being pasted to into it. I imagine most would. 2) Use Rose's Publish to Web functionality (Tools|Publish to Web). Nasty thing here is the graphic files representing the diagrams get stored in a subdirectory with obscure numeric names - something like catXXXXXXXXX.png. Ultimately you get decent images out of it though. It'll produce PNG, JPEG and a couple other formats, depending on how you set it up. 3) Variation of 1). Paste into Word and save your document as HTML. This will save your image as a GIF I believe. But the resulting GIF isn't very good. Interestingly though, it also stores a .wmz file, which I'm pretty sure is the source file for the GIF because the image inside of Word when I view the page is much better than the GIF image that gets saved. I don't suggest that you go the route of 3). Use it only if the first two wont work for you. Good luck.
You can also: . highlight the window that has the image, . hit ALT+PrintScreen combo (screen shot) . paste the screenshot into something like MS Paint, . crop it if you wish, and . save image to a file (format of choice) HTH, /venkat [ February 11, 2004: Message edited by: Venkat Bommakanti ]

FYI .. I tried copy paste directly .. Makes the image very minitarised and not readable. The best option I found which still keep the same image size and all things intact is web publish . Even though rose creates those confusing names. Searching thru and finally opening the html showed pretty decent images of the design diagrams classes /sequence so I suggest anyone using Rose to take that route .
