Welcome, @Zemans !

It looks like you're trying to export something from Mapknitter, yes?

I believe there was an outage yesterday -- when did you run the export? If you link us to the map we can likely help with tweaking the final resolution. @icarito - just a heads up about this export!

Hi, I don't think this export was affected by yeterday's outage. The interrupted exports were for other users @justinhall74 and @whallet - I sent individual comments on each case. @warren I guess @Zemans should try again? Here is a link to his try in case someone can tell what happened: - @Zemans, thanks for letting us know and sorry you had difficulties!

Hi. Thanks much. For a HS science project in Bolivia, we are trying to export a map for printing so we can put it on a poster board. Any help would be great!

Hi. I am not sure how to respond to bronwen (technically). Yes, we are attempting to use Mapknitter and want to print. Any clue for us? It was only allowing to print to Geotiff. I use a Mac and Safari.

Hi, if it's only one image, you can use this download button -- the white one to the far right:

And less distorted images can sometimes work better for the full export (on the export tab): Screen_Shot_2018-05-10_at_1.51.22_PM.png

I was able to export like that and get a JPG: test-boys.jpg

Hope that helps!

That is a great tip about downloading with the one button. Thank you!
