Saving a diagram or mind map as a graphic
When you export a diagram or mind map to one of the graphic file formats available in Inspiration, only the visible items in the diagram or mind map are included in the graphic. Hidden symbols, links and notes are not exported. If you are focused in on a portion of the diagram or mind map, only that portion is exported. Hyperlinked files and attached audio files are not exported.

2.On the File menu, choose Export.
3.Click the Graphic File tab.
4.On the File Format menu, select the graphic file format.
▪BMP saves the diagram in the standard Microsoft Windows graphic format.
▪GIF saves the diagram as a GIF file that can be opened in graphics, presentation, and page layout applications and web pages.
