Re: convert QVW to QVF

Hi Ali,

Plz follow below mentioned steps:

  1. Open Qlik Sense Desktop.
  2. Open a Windows Explorer window to the file path of the .qvw you want to convert.
  3. Drag and drop the .qvw file you want to convert into the Qlik Sense Desktop Window.
  4. Qlik Sense (2.x.x+) will create *.qvf in the directory along side the *.qvw file and open that file in a new Qlik Sense tab.

Re: convert QVW to QVF

In the converter, you can choose which ones you want to keep or not.

As a default it should get your charts selected to be converted and then put as a master item.

Can you share the converter screen when you try do it with the selections boxes checked?
