If you created a network graph that you would like to share in a publication, you can export it as an SVG (vector-based) high resolution format.
It is then possible to print the graph any size (in a scientific paper or on a huge poster) in very high quality.
Step 1: In order to export your graph first make sure it looks the way you want it to. You can play with the main settings (e.g. show all labels or only some, color palette of the graph, abstract layout). You might also want to only depict certain clusters (use Analytics to filter them out) or the structural gaps (Insight menu).
Step 2: You might want to filter some nodes out or reduce the number of nodes displayed using the Settings panel at the right menu.
Step 3: Once your graph looks the way you want it to, please, also check if you want to have the white or the dark background. You can make it permanent in InfraNodus Settings or using the theme switch button:
Step 4: You can also make your graph look abstract, which is great for printing beautiful high-res images of the text's structure:
Step 5: Once the graph looks exactly the way you want it to,
1) click the Export button in the left menu
3) click the Export > SVG button
Step 6: The SVG file will then be saved to your `Downloads` folder. You can open and edit it further using Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop or any other program that can edit vector graphics.
Step 7: When you open your SVG file, make sure you have the right background so that you can see the node labels. By default the background is transparent, so if you were in the dark mode in InfraNodus, the labels are white, so you won't see them. In this case you either need to use the black background in printing or switch to the Light mode in InfraNodus and export the graph again, so that the labels are black.
Step 8: You may also want to set up the high resolution for your SVG image. Usually if you're planning to print it in a paper, you need to set 300 dpi (dots per inch) resolution and the real size (e.g. 210 x 210 mm to fit on a Letter or A4-sized page). This can be done when you open the file in Adobe Photoshop. You can also change the file's settings in Illustrator once it is opened.
Step 9: Your publisher may not accept SVG files. In that case, you can export it in TIF (high quality no-loss format) or JPG (maximum quality)
