    All these looovely features, but still can’t export a PDF.

      We have this on our roadmap, but it will just take time to get there. PDF is not as easy of an export as SVG or PNG.

      There is an extension that uses our read api but I haven't tested it in detail. https://figma-pdf.gweltaz-calori.com/

      Hope that helps. :)

      Why would you even export UI in PDF format? PDF is for printing purposes. I don't think it's a need for a designer. It's only 'want' thing.

        Because iOS uses PDF assets. At least the engineers I work with use them.

        Robin, I also love designing presentations in Figma, and sometimes you need a nice, crisp PDF. Exporting not-so-sharp JPG/PNG's and then making them a pdf isn't ideal.

        Actually, this would be good/great/amazing. Having to resync design in a .ppt/.pdf every time a PM decides last minute to add a new feature is a pain. Would love to create a presentation in Figma that I can share using the latest design.

        iOS assets can be delivered in PDF format. For iOS devs, it's a great format to use
