Exporting to graphical image now separates into multiple bmp files and an HTML file
Before upgrading to version 5.4 when exporting a model to a graphical image; a single PNG or BMP file would be created. Now in version 5.4 an HTML file along with four image files are created. Why is that happening now?
As of Toad Data Modeler 5.4, large models are now exported as multiple image files with one HTML file, which "merges" all the images so users can see the entire model at once.
The new export method was introduced in 5.4 to address the often occurring issue of running out of memory during image exports. There is a unspecified memory limit which throws an error every time its exceeded. The memory limitation is not related to system memory (RAM), so having a lot of RAM won't help, especially since Toad Data Modeler is 32-bit application which can use only 2 GB of RAM.
