Resolution of images exported to clipboard

Ayreon shared this question 3 years ago

For some reason Geogebra started saving images in absurdely high resolution to the clipboard. A full-screen image comes out at approximately 5000x3000 pixels while my resolution is 1920x1080.

Scaling them down afterwards hurts the quality a lot. It also impacts file size negatively.

In Geogebra 5 you could change the resolution. I don't see any option in Geogebra 6 to affect the way the image is saved to the clipboard. Is there a way to change the resolution in the program?

Or can you somehow hide the buttons that are always visible top right and bottom left so you can do a screencap?

Thank you very much.

I tried using this, because this is what I want to copy the image into clipboard.

  • ExportImage("scale", 5)

Shows a popup of the current view so that the user can right-click -> Save Image As...

But no matter the property nor value that I select (be it height, width, scale or dpi) the image has always the high resolution I mentioned in the first post when I copy it to clipboard.It works fine if I save the picture to the disk. But that's honestly a big hazzle. Copying to the clipboard was way faster and worked really well all the time. I don't know why it changed. I reset all settings and tried a reinstall but it's still like this.
