I want to convert a SQL Server execution plan (sqlplan) to a graphics file so that it can be easily shown to others. I could not find a utility to convert a sqlplan file to an image file. Is there a utility that I missed that can be used to convert a sqlplan file to an image file?
I am also familiar with the idea of using CTRL-Print Screen to copy an image of a window to the paste buffer and then using a graphics utility like Microsoft Paint to save the image as a graphics file. However, It saves the entire window. I have noticed other posts here that manage to just show the execution plan without anything else (like the SSMS clutter) and was wondering if there is an easy way to do that without editing the image.
