^Not directly with existing code because charts are drawn to bitmap canvas and export is just saving bitmap to file. Supported formats are: Bmp, Emf, Exif, Gif, Icon, Jpeg, Png, Tiff, Wmf. Decent conversion tools might exist but source should be at least uncompressed.
You can export with bigger size if that's the problem?

Bitmaps are fine for photos and similar graphics that are inherently pixel based. Using bitmapped graphics for technical charts (lines, areas, text) just seems wrong to me. Vector graphics files would be much smaller, could be printed at any resolution, and could be edited easily in a graphics editor. But if the code is set up in a different way, then that's what it is. I guess I could always export the data and plot them using other software.

Vector graphics should also be rendered to bitmap to be visible on display (which is not a vector plotter). Only difference is where rendering engine locates in this chain. Line and curve drawing commands in typical .NET application look like vector commands so basically some custom interface could convert drawing commands to xml of svg.

But honestly, converting to vector graphics by exporting and so on is total waste on time compared to png with suitable size for publication. I really don't get any kind of non-productive tinkering when source is already packed and high quality.

That really depends on your needs, and my needs may be very different to yours. What if I wanted to change the line styles for black-and-white printing? Or remove a particular line altogether? Change/remove the grid lines? Or change the font? Things like this are simply not feasible with bitmaps.

It is impossible (and unnecessary) to make everyone happy with all the details in Vituix. I can always export the data and do the plots using some other software.

Vector graphics export as .svg xml would be very nice. I'm not arguing against that. Disappointment is that it needs separate functions and extra programming work. I can investigate possibilities to grab and convert graphics commands to xml.
