Nothing happens when I click "Export PNG Image"

Postby larosaurus_rex » Tue Apr 28, 2015 3:01 am

I've run into this problem after upgrading to Inkscape 0.91. I'm trying to export an image to PNG, but when I click the "Export PNG Image" option nothing happens. No dialog box appears. I thought maybe there was something wrong with my image so I tried exporting a different image but again, nothing happened. I also created a new document, drew a square and tried to export that but once again, nothing. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...this never happened to me when I was using the last version of Inkscape. When I did a search for this issue I couldn't find any similar threads, but I apologize if there's a topic about this issue already. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance!

In 0.91, developers have made the Export PNG dialog docked by default. I had the same problem when I first used 0.91. I was waiting for the dialog to pop open on top of the canvas, and didn't even notice it over in the docking area (right side of Inkscape canvas) :roll:

You can undock, if you like (I did). Info on docking: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL ... atomy-Dock

As far as I know dual monitors make it even worse.

You're welcome.

Thanks. As a newbie I was very frustrated not being able to export as PNG. Finally I found this post.
