I am trying to export a simulink blockdiagram in a high resolution picture format.
I am using the print command as follows:
but this only prints one block of the entire block diagrm.
the blcok diagram is very simple and has only three blocks
I did not define any mask or somethign like that
I use matlab 2018a.
Any hint?

Hi Afshin,
I observed that you are using a resolution of 600 DPI which is why you are getting one block saved in the image. Reducing the resolution size will save the entire block diagram in the image.
Refer to the following documenation link which explains you to choose the right resolution for your use case:
To print a very high resolution image, you could use the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) format as that scales well.
The following command shows how to use the svg format.
>> saveas(get_param('untitled','Handle'),'MySimulinkDiagram.svg') % where 'untitled' is the name of the model
You could then convert the svg file to png using an online third party tool. See the following link to convert the file. There are more tools available online.
The other possible high resolution image can be obtained by printing a model to PDF format.
I hope the above information helps.

Thanks a lot! when I did the procedure as outlined above the default resolution was 72 dpi so imported the svg file into Gimp and then increase the resolution to 600 and then exported as a PNG file.
