Adjust container caption font size when printing workflows

Highlighted

I'm trying to print some workflows to PDF for documentation purposes, but I'm finding the font size of the container caption is ridiculous oversized and therefore completely useless:

Is there any way to get around this and display the captions at a readable size, beyond resorting to the snipping tool?

Hi @james204,

 

not sure why the font changes in size when printing, I'll report this issue.

 

In the meanwhile, have you seen this posts here? https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Discussions/Screen-shot-of-the-Alteryx-workflow/td...

 

Many people use 3rd party screen grabbers, executed via the Run Command tool within a workflow.

The process is also described here https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/taking-automated-snapshots-alteryx-workflow-alberto-guisande/

 

See if this could help you.

 

Best,

Giuseppe

Hi @GiuseppeC,

 

Thanks for the reply. I've checked out those posts - might have to give Snagit a try

I'm also facing the same issues. Unable to print as the container caption changes size and can not be read as it is cut off.

Thanks for creating this. I've been trying to work around this as well and have removed all containers for presentation purposes. My solution was to export to .pdf and edit the file using Illustrator (however this won't be a popular solution for those who don't have Adobe licenses).
