Changing the image settings for graphic slices

You can change the graphics file format, color mode, and image resolution of graphic slices individually, for example, if you want to export some graphic slices as PDF files but others as PNG files.


  • Graphic Slices is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • The left panel is shown.


  1. In the Graphic Slices panel, select the graphic slices whose image settings you want to change.
  2. Select a graphics file format from the menu.
  3. Optional: If you selected PNG or TIFF, select a resolution from the Resolution menu.

    The Resolution setting does not affect PDF and SVG files as they are vector formats.

  4. Choose a color mode.
    • Mono exports graphic slices in black and white.

    • Color exports graphic slices in full color.


    If you want to export graphic slices with a resolution of 72 dpi, we recommend that you select Color. If you select Mono, staff lines can disappear.

  5. Optional: Repeat steps 1 to 4 for other graphic slices whose image settings you want to change.


The image settings for the selected graphic slices are changed.
