How to resize images in combination with Qlik Sense?

Hi,

I want to create a simple PowerPoint report with NPrinting (June Relase), which is a collection of several charts of a Qlik Sense (June Release Patch1) application.

Each chart should appear on one page without Qlik Sense scrollbars..

Unfortunately I can´t achive this as desired. It seems that I can´t control to have the full image without scrollbar and to auto-resize the image in the given frame in the PPT slide.

What I did:

I created a new PPT page and dragged the image on this page. Then I resized the image to use the whole space. After this I tried all the different "Stretch" options in NPrinting for the image

See: Image dimension management in Microsoft Office reports ‒ Qlik NPrinting

Stretch Options with their result:

a) Don´t fit: This shows the whole Sense bar chart without scrollbar, BUT the image is greater than the space available on the PPT page

b) Fit Inside / Fit Width / Fit Height / Stretch: Image has the size of the frame in the PPT page but shows Qlik Sense scrollbars

How can I achieve

* to have a fixed space for the image defined by frame in the PPT page AND

* to have the image in full resolution with scollbars, but resized into the given frame?

Your help is very appreciated!

Thanks, Thomas

Re: How to resize images in combination with Qlik Sense?

Hi mates - I was busy running Sydney's City2Surf so it took me while to respond to this one - sorry.

I have a couple of questions to start with:

  • When you export image without any changes to its size - do it have scrollbars? If it does not then whe can proceed further.

Now regarding your question:

I find it also extremly difficult to resize object to the size i want without scrollbars. I did not perform enough testing to be a specialist in it, but i have my workarounds for it:

So instead using image resize options i usually decide to adjust my PowerPoint slide size to the image size. I am not sure whether this would help you but you can give it a try and see,

So:

  • Create a PPT NPrinting template
  • Drag&Drop your image onto it and generate preview
    • see how big is the image generated (without changing its properties)
    • see if it has scrollbars or not.
  • once you are happy with the image size and look you can go to next step and again edit your template and go to:
    • DESIGN->Slide Size - > Custom Slide Size (see image)
    • enter there required size

Re: How to resize images in combination with Qlik Sense?

I have tried all options in property "Stretch" of the image. You mentioned "fit to window" which is not existing. Have you meant the property "Stretch"?

Re: How to resize images in combination with Qlik Sense?

Hi Lech,

thanks for your reply. This confirms the behaviour which I already found out. For me the conclusion is, that you don´t have an option to re-size a Qlik Sense image with NPrinting.


The solution you´re suggesting is good, although it´s just a workaround by re-sizing the canvas of the PPT.

I´m little bit disappoint that such a feature is not included in NPrinting.

Thanks for your help.
