How to Take a Readable Snapshot of a Large Power BI Semantic Model

Hi all,

I have a large semantic model with 6 fact tables and over 60 dimension tables.
I want to take a snapshot of the entire model to share on our Wiki. However, when I fit the whole model in the view, the table and column names become unreadable.
Is there a way to take a snapshot of the entire model where users can enlarge the image and still read the names clearly?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Anonymous 

 

To my knowledge, Power BI currently doesn't have this feature. You can consider if it's possible to create some custom layouts with fewer tables and take snapshots of these custom layouts. With fewer tables, it may be more readable. Model view in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

 

Otherwise you probably need to seek for some third-party ER Diagram (ERD) tools to draw the entity relationship diagram, then export and share it on your Wiki. 

 

Best Regards,
Jing
