Camunda Modeler - Output to PDF?


Hi… Just completed my first BPMN diagram in Camunda Modeler (for Mac) which I have to say worked great!

But… How do I output anything from that application to be used in a report I am making? There does not seem to be any way to Save As… a JPG or PNG, and there is no standard print functionality, which on Mac usually allows you to save as PDF.

Am I missing something?


DataItems missing? (Data Object, Data Store, Data Input, Data Output)

Hi @mjelic,

At the moment the modeler doesn’t provide the functionality you’re looking for, but we’ll be implementing it somewhere in the future.

What you can do is save the file and import within, where you can export it as an SVG.

Hope this helps.



We could implement PDF export via pdfmake.


I had the same requirement. I started out by adding SVG export. The problem with SVG is that the SVG file does not work properly in most programs. It works in Inkscape but general users should not need any extra programs.

I went for using standard print-out instead. Most (all?) modern browsers/OS have a “Save to PDF”-option when printing. If you use some CSS to hide palette/properties-panel/other stuff using a media-query, printout looks reasonable.


Hello i have integrated bpmn io in out application it has a print functionality, when trying to print the diagram it appaers cropped , this is generated using the overlay example, any ideas how to make it print properly ?
