want to export it as an ".xml" file, make the name of the
file end with ".xml". It will ask you what name to give for
the special attribute that represents label. The default is
"name" and unless you already have an attribute name that is
"name", we don't recommend you choose another one.
We must caution
you that exporting as ".xml" is much
less efficient than exporting as ".tm3" and unless you have
a strong preference, you had better export it as ".tm3".
You need much more memory to export it as ".xml" and it
roughly takes twice as much time to export as ".xml" than
Open this file in Treemap and you will see
only the nodes of the directory that were exported.
If you experience difficulty exporting a selected directory, you first unselect
the previously selected directories and then proceed the exporting process again.

of the squarified or strip treemap nodes may move from their original position

Print this Document
- There are two ways to print all the links from the Table of Contents page.
- First way: Go to the Table of Contents page. Then print each page separately, while clicking on "Next" on top of the page.
The "Next" link will take you to all the pages of the documentation and will be printed in order.
- Second way: This method has been checked for Microsoft Explorer. Firstly, go back to the Table of Contents. Then select
"File" from the menu bar, and then go to "Print".
Once the print option shows up, go to "Options", and click on "Print all linked documents". This will print all the linked pages
that are one level deep. Using this method of printing, avoids the trouble of going to each link in the Table of Contents, and
printing them individually. However, the printed links might not be in the same order as in the Table of Contents page.
