In the Gene Tree view , it will be usefull either to be able to increase the window so that whole GeneTree is visible, or there should be a link to download the whole GeneTree view into a image format.
GeneTree view : complete phylogenetic tree with species images and domain information.

    Dear Amit,
    thanks for your suggestion.

    Downloadable image:
    We have been looking into ways to provide a downloadable tree image and found a solution, that we would like to present in our next release.
    The problem was that there is no trivial solution to convert an svg to e.g. a png or pdf in javascript. We had to tweak it a bit.

    Full gene tree view:
    D3, the javascript library we are using to build the trees, has some nice zoom functions that we have tested, but not implemented. We are trying to present this feature in our next release as well.

    Does that make sense?

    Let us know if you have more questions!

    Thanks for the reply Fabian.

    Downloadable image: If SVG conversion in JavaScript is a problem and if it is possible with any other desktop software’s then giving a link to download svg file itself could be an interim solution.
    Full gene tree view: Zoom feature will be nice, but if it’s possible to be able to extend tree containing window (div) then also user will be able to see the view.
    <div class="homecontent">
                                                                                                                    <div class="tree_container" id="tree"></div>

    Hope this helps and looking fwd to the next release.

    Hi Amit,
    thanks for your reply.

    We have found a way to provide zooming for our gene trees. We currently test it, but it should make its way into the next release.

    Also, I am optimistic that we find a solution to download the gene trees.
    There are some interesting approaches available.
    Thanks for your help!
