When exporting large ER diagram to SVG the result is cropped

See original GitHub issue

I had a look and I found this related issue: #3099 and I also found a comment explaining a workaround (see, but I couldn’t get it to work.

Please find attached the SVG as produced by DBeaver. When I open it with my system viewer (I have Chrom and Edge for Windows), it only shows one small part of the diagram. Zooming out doesn’t help. However, I was able to manually add the width and height attributes to the top-level <svg> element to get the whole diagram to show (in my case I used <svg width="2400" height="6700">). Possibly there are better ways to achieve the same thing, but I have as good as no knowledge about SVG, so I wouldn’t really know.

Possibly this is a limitation of the viewer (like Chrome), but somehow I doubt that and rather suspect that some attribute is missing in the XML.

System information:

  • Operating system (distribution) and version: Windows 10
  • DBeaver version: 7.3.5
  • Additional extensions: SVG Extension 1.0.87

Connection specification:

  • Database name and version
  • Driver name
  • Do you use tunnels or proxies (SSH, SOCKS, etc)?

Yes! With the Early Access it now works as expected. The version of the SVG extension is now also updated: I was assuming I would only have to update the existing plug-in.

To be really sure, can you install the Early Access version?

Thanks again.
