One of the guiding design principles we use with Vexlio is that performing common tasks should be as painless as possible. While exporting is something that you’ll probably spend less time on than actually creating your diagrams, it’s still an important part of your workflow. In this post we’ll look at the different options available when exporting your diagrams, including automatic cropping, extra whitespace padding, and more.
