How Do I Save a Figma File as a PDF?

Figma is an online design tool that helps you to create high-quality designs in a simple and convenient way. It is becoming increasingly popular among designers, as it allows them to collaborate with one another in real-time.

One of the key features of Figma is the ability to save your design as a PDF file. This is useful if you want to share your design with someone who does not have access to Figma, or if you need to print out your design for any reason.

The process of saving a Figma file as a PDF is relatively straightforward. Firstly, you need to open the file that you wish to save as a PDF in Figma.

Then, click on the ‘File’ menu at the top of the page and select ‘Export’ from the drop-down menu. This will bring up a window where you can select which formats you wish to export your file in. Select ‘PDF’ from the list of options and click ‘Export’.

You will then be prompted to choose some additional options for exporting your file. These include selecting whether you want your exported PDF to be ‘Interactive’ or ‘Print Quality’, and whether you want it exported at its original size or scaled down. Once you have made your selections, click ‘Export’ again and wait for Figma to generate your PDF.

Once the PDF has been generated, it will appear in the same directory as your original Figma document. You can now open this PDF in any standard viewing program such as Adobe Acrobat Reader or Preview on MacOS, or share it with anyone who does not have access to Figma.


Saving a Figma file as a PDF is a simple process that only takes a few clicks and offers great flexibility when sharing designs with others who don’t use Figma. Simply open the desired file within Figma, click File > Export > PDF, make any necessary adjustments, then hit Export once more before viewing or sharing the generated PDF document!
