Exporting and downloading content from murals is handy when you wish to see content offline, or simply keep them for your records outside of the cloud.

Export a mural, a selection of objects, or your outline.

When exporting, you can choose between exporting the entire mural, a selection of objects, or exporting the content of your outline. The available export formats are:

  • PDF file.

  • PNG image.

  • PPT (PowerPoint) presentation (only works for the contents of an outline).

  • HTML and data files, zipped.

  • CSV file (sticky notes only).

To export a mural, selection, or outline:

  1. Open the Export window in one of the following ways:

    1. Click the Export icon on the right side of the top toolbar.

    2. Hold Command + E (Control + E on Windows).

    3. Right-click on a selection in your mural or on the mural’s background and select Export from the context menu.

    4. Click the Export icon from within the Outline window.

  2. Select PDF, PNG, PPT, HTML and data files zipped, or CSV file (sticky notes only) from the Format dropdown.

    Note: If you choose PPT presentation, you can only download content from your mural’s outline. You must have content in your outline to use this option.

  3. Select between exporting the entire mural with All content, a part of the mural with Selection, or just your Outline.

Your browser will automatically download the exported file to your computer’s default Downloads folder.

Here's an example of how a PPT export looks:

You may also click Email me a link too in the confirmation pop-up message. You'll receive an email with the link to download the export file. Just print or download and you’re good to go!

Note: Export links expire after five days.
