When I try to export graphics as PNG, JPG and other rasterized formats using the right-click and choosing Save Graphic As..., if the notebook magnification is changed from 100%, Mathematica fails to export the image and returns the following Error:

"The specified setting for the option WindowSize cannot be used."

However this does not happen when Export function is used to export the graphic.

enter image description here

I think this is a bug.

I am using Mathematica v9.0.1 installed on Microsoft Windows 7 (64 Bits).


This bug is still present in version

Try to figure out steps to reliably reproduce the error and let Wolfram know about it –  ssch Dec 18 '12 at 14:33
Is this the same issue as: (55001)? If so I should close my own as a duplicate. –  Mr.Wizard Aug 4 '14 at 6:44
@Mr.Wizard Yes. I believe it is the same issue. The error message is the same. However I think that your question should not be closed, because this question mentions using Save Graphic As... not Save Selection As.... I think the two questions are related and your question is not duplicate. –  M6299 Aug 5 '14 at 14:20
But still present in 10.0.1 –  Mr.Wizard Sep 17 '14 at 15:48
Three workarounds for this problem. –  Karsten 7. Apr 4 at 8:42
