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.
    Exporting two canvases to PDF format

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.
