Issue Details

I see the following error "(GDI+ error) the method was aborted" whenever trying to export images as a graphic in DIAdem. What is the cause of this error, and how do I resolve it?


This error occurs due a known issue in DIAdem whenever trying to export graphics that include an outlined bar channel with no visible bars. R&D is currently addressing the issue, but in the meantime we have recommended 2 workarounds.
  1. Export the image as either a PDF, powerpoint file, or clipboard copy.
  2. Change the display type of your bar channels to another display type via the following instructions​​​
    1. Right-Click on your graph and open Display
    2. Left-Click on the Type of your bar channel to open Curve Parameters dialogue box
    3. Click on any of the other Display Modes such as Lines, or Lines and Points. Your DIAdem should look like the following example image
