The Export Figma Frames feature in CopyDoc works by letting you export frames on your current Figma page to other popular document formats.

Selecting your Figma frames to include

To get started with this feature, click on the Export Frames button in the main CopyDoc plugin screen.

You'll now be able to select the frames from your current Figma page that you would like to export to another format.

CopyDoc will load all of your parent frames from your current Figma page into the plugin as a list of frames that you can use to choose the frames you would like to include; you can click on any frame's checkbox or image thumbnail to select it (clicking it again will deselect it).

Parent frames required. To export frames from CopyDoc, your Figma page must contain at least one Parent Frame; this means, any "frames" that are located directly underneath your page.

Selecting your document export format

After you've selected the Figma frames you would like to export, you can select the export format using the dropdown box options.

Export PDF

Selecting the PDF option allows you to export your Figma frames (which are treated as “pages”) to a PDF document. You can configure the following settings for PDF exports:

Export PDF File Per Frame

Enabling the Export PDF File Per Frame toggle will ensure each Figma frame you’ve selected will be exported as an individual .pdf files, rather than exporting all of the selected frames being merged together into a single .pdf file.

Vector Gradient Fix

If you’re exporting Figma frames to .pdf that contain gradient fills inside any vector paths, you can enable the Vector Gradient Fix setting to ensure the gradient is rendered as expected. If you don’t need this option, there’s no need to enable it.

DPI

You can select the DPI (dots per inch) setting for your PDF exports, which will influence the file size and quality of your exported .pdf files. The higher the DPI, the better the quality (with higher file sizes) - the lower the DPI, the less quality (with lower file sizes).

The available DPI options are:

  • 72dpi Low Quality
  • 150dpi Good Quality
  • 300dpi Best Quality
PDF Export Browser Support. Due to browser compatibility issues, exporting PDF files from CopyDoc isn’t supported in Safari. Please run the plugin in another browser (like Chrome) or the Figma Desktop App instead.

Exporting and downloading your document

When you're happy with your selected frames and the options for your chosen export format, you can click on the Export button to generate your file.

After clicking the Export button, you'll see a confirmation screen letting you know that your file is ready to download. To download the file from Figma to your computer, you can click the Download button in the CopyDoc plugin.

Saving file downloads from Figma If you're using the Figma desktop app, you'll see a prompt appear to download your file. However, if you're using Figma in a web browser, your file will automatically be downloaded to your computer by default (usually to the Downloads directory on your computer).
