This feature has been requested on QuickBase's UserVoice:

https://quickbase.uservoice.com/forums/111823-quickbase-product-feedback/suggestions/8560630


UserVoice is an underutilized feature in the QuickBase community. Unless there is an internal (ie Intuit/QuickBase empolyee) or external champion (ie big customer with big $s) for a new feature the only way to get it in QuickBase's pipeline for consideration is by using UserVoice and getting votes. Well that statement may be completely untrue but it sure sounded authoritative didn't it?

Luckily there is always a workaround. Just follow this procedure:

(1) install Fireshot from the Chrome Web Store:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/capture-webpage-screensho/mcbpblocgmgfnpjjppndjkmgjaogfceg


(2) display your relationship diagram. Here is a public one you can test on:

NorthWinds Traders - Relationship Diagram
https://haversineconsulting.quickbase.com/db/bf3zb9bph?a=reldiagram


(3) Fireshot has options to export the entire page, the visible page or a selection to pdf or various image formats. I used these commands (entered into the JavaScript console) to hide the various branding and navigation bars:

$(brandBarHeader).hide();
$(navTop).hide();
$(tablesMenuBarWrapper).hide();
$(pageNavBar).hide();

(4) Now invoke Fireshot to capture a screenshot and save it to one of the available formats. Attached is a pdf of the NorthWind Traders Relationship Diagram I captured.
