I have several models that are large (700-800+ tables). When creating a pdf 'report' of it I get the error that the model is too large to create a pdf. Is there any way of making a usable, viewable image of a large model in erwin DM?
It is because the PDF files need a lot of resources, including accounting for empty space between the objects. The workaround for that is to go to Tools | Diagram Picture and use Current to save an Enhanced Meta File (EMF) image of the current diagram. You can also use Selected to save images of other selected Subject Areas or ER Diagrams. You can further use other tools (e.g. IrfanView - just a suggestion and not an endorsement or recommendation) to convert EMF format to JPG format and save the EMF file as a JPEG file. This file can be opened in many programs including Google Chrome or Microsoft IE.
