FAQ Section: Macintosh : Mac OS X
  1. Why can't I export JPEG and PNG?
  2. GIF-Export returns files with no content (0 Bytes)

    This is an indirect problem with antialiasing - it takes a lot of memory to reduce the colour palette. Increase the memory assigned to Poseidon by altering the start-script in the bin-folder. Increase the option -Xmx96m to something bigger, like -Xmx160m for example. Then the export should work fine.
  3. Why does Poseidon keep using an old JDK even though I have JDK1.5?
  4. I cannot open files - is that a bug?
  5. Why does Drag and Drop from the tree to the diagrams not work?
  6. Can I use the Eclipse Integration with Mac OS X?
  7. When I click on the Poseidon icon nothing happens.
