Using the Export to PDF Function in a Workspace

In Bluescape, you have the ability to export a single object, multiple objects (including canvases), or your entire workspace to PDF format.

Export a single object

To export a single object or canvas:

  1. Select the object you would like to export to PDF.
  2. Select :more_options: (More options)
  3. Select Export.
  4. Select PDF.

Export multiple objects

You can also export multiple objects to PDF:

  1. Add objects to your workspace.
  2. Use your mouse to select the objects you would like to export to PDF.
  3. Right-select or select :more_options: (More options).
  4. Select Export.
  5. Select PDF. Your PDF download appears at the bottom of your display.

Several aspects are limited or not supported:

  • Orphaned connectors are also excluded from PDF - If your PDF only has one connector, return to your workspace and select more objects for PDF inclusion.
  • At this time, hyperlinked text does not become a hyperlink in the PDF.
  • If a user selects a video or a document (for example, Microsoft Word), they only get the selected frame/page in the PDF output.
    • Note: This is only true when selecting multiple objects to export. On a single document (for example, .docx, there is no export option present.
  • Users can also export their entire workspace to a one-page PDF format file; however, large workspaces are difficult to read at a lower zoom level to accommodate a one-page output.
  • When using the Dark theme for Bluescape and exporting to PDF, the white text appears on a white document background.
  • Workspace reactions are not included in PDF exports.
