    [FEATURE REQUEST] Export blueprints as Images

    In the blueprints Editor:
    File -> Export -> .png / .pdf
    File -> Export All -> .pdf

    a standard formatted image/pdf would be great too (like variable with default value on left side, one image foreach event graph, etc....)

    Hi MaxiHori,

    Are you talking about taking a picture of the event graph and exporting that to the desktop or did you mean something different?

      Yup! it is really hard to share blueprints, expecially outside of the engine

          Hi Adam,

          Wasn't there a feature that Master Jedi Noland was working on for copying blueprints to a shelf for sharing? Its been awhile since I heard anything on it, so my memory is foggy.

              As someone who (a) often likes to post images to show what he's doing to help someone out, and (b) has absolutely MASSIVE blueprints which often cover dozens and dozens of screenshots, I second this.

              BUT, if I can make a recommendation, either replace the aforementioned "screengrab whole BP" functionality (or make a second option) for "screengrab inside Comment bubble", ideally with the selected comment bubble itself rendered invisible.

              For large BPs, that would provide a really handy way to screengrab the entire relevant section by piggybacking it on an existing rectangle-drawing system inside BPs.

                That would be really nice. Currently I have to take quite a lot screenshots to share my blueprints.

                  TECHNICALLY BPs copy as plain text so you can share them via .txt and the other person can paste it. But either way, yes, being able to take a screenshot of the graph would be amazing.

                    No you don't. You just mark all the Blueprints in the Blueprint file Push "Ctrl C" and then open a notepad and paste it. You can now send it by mail and people can paste the notepad file's contents in a blueprint file inside the UE 4 editor and instantly see your work. Awesome and fast

                        agree, really need this to let people share on answerhub whole graph and not screenshot with only one small readable piece when they ask for help

                            Yes, but if the graph is very extended, then you need to make it either a slideshow of many screenshots, or manually stitch those in PS together on a larger canvas....

                            Im currently owrking on a little tool that recreates a visual graph from the clipboard-text version and save that into a file.....
