Grasshopper Canvas Screenshot

Hello, I was wondering if there is an efficient way to take good quality screenshots of large scripts (9000+ components)? I have tried to export a hi-res image (2x zoom) and the whole system is stuck. Are there any plug ins that allows you to take a good quality screen in a less painful way?

Thank you in advance.

Maybe you can export quick image of different parts of the script than combine them with photoshop

9000+ components… wow

What are your PC’s system specs?

Thank you! I haven’t thought about that.

yeah, it needs some clustering tbh :slight_smile:

Assuming you’ll need to scroll your screen to get all the GH components you’ll need to merge the individual images into one wide one. The easiest way to do this is to overlap the screenshots a bit and then use a panorama maker program to stitch them together. Photoshop Elements can do this, but there are also a number of free ones out there - just search for panorama maker.
