Exporting as graphic, make sure you allow for a large Image width, otherwise
you will have a crowded unreadable map.
I usually export at 3000+pixels depending on the size of the area, in some
occasions exporting multiple smaller area maps and compiling them into a
larger image using photoshop or something like that will also work. You will
need to toy around with the font/system sizes to get the right mix, so you
might be creating multiple images testing these out.
