Version 1.2018.07 DPI handling

0 votes
asked Jun 15 in Bug by Jeff
While playing with the new sprites in the stdlib as part of the new version (1.2018.07), I encountered a problem when I generated a PNG image with "skinparam dpi 300".

The resulting PNG had the sprites shrunk to a smaller size, comparing to the one generated for SVG.  The previous version did not have this problem.  Unfortunately the Imagemagick "convert" command could not convert the SVG to PNG properly so I had to revert back to previous version.

Is there a new/better way to generate PNG with higher resolution output, or "dpi" skin parameter is the only/right way for this?

Thanks for the report.

It's indeed a regression, that should be fixed in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar

Tell us if it's not working for you.

Thank you very much for the quick turnaround.  The beta version indeed fixed the DPI problem for sprites, but unfortunately not for IMG tag such as the following:

rectangle "<img:SaaS.png{scale=1}>\r SaaS" as saas

The generated PNG has the sprites in the right size, while the IMGs are shrunk as before.  Sorry I should've mentioned earlier in the original report.

Well, we're sorry we did not test better :-)
Anyway, thanks for the new report : this should be ok in newly beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar
Once again, tell us if it's not working for you or if you find other issues!
