How can you Share a Toad ER Diagram with a non-Toad user?

I like the Toad database diagram feature. I like it so much, I want to share my
diagrams with non-Toad users and also include them in my web based database
documentation.

I’ve looked, but I can’t see a way to export the .ter files to any
format, such as jpg, img, pdf, etc.

Is there a way to share Toad for Data Analysts Database ER diagrams with
non-Toad users?

Click on one of the tables in the Er Diagram to give it focus. Then use the File | Preview menu and export to pdf or image.

I don’t see a “preview” option under my file menu and the
“print preview” option doesn’t have export to PDF or image
… this seems simple, what am I missing?

I should look like this. What version of TDA are you using? It should be in all versions.

I am using toad 3.01.1734. This is, as far as I know, the current production
release.

There is a “Print Preview” option, but is does not offer any way to
save a file, it only offers the ability to print.

This is a third party component and it is a little odd. Once you choose the File | Preview window, then go to the File | Export Docu menu. Here you can export as pdf or image. See first screenshot.

It works just as you describe in the latest beta, but this feature seems to be
missing altogether from the production 3.0 release.

That is to say, there is no “ File | Export Docu menu” option after
you go to the “File | Preview window,” in version 3.0, but in 3.1 it
works exactly as you describe

Wow! You are right. I didn’t realize that. Sorry for the confusion.
