You can export your presentation to a static PDF file by clicking the Export Presentation button in the Pitchdeck plugin toolbar, and ensuring the PDF Deck (.pdf file) option is selected, then clicking the Export to PDF button. Once the PDF export has completed and the confirmation message appears, click the Download your .pdf file button to save the file to your computer.
If you’ve specified a password, you’ll also be able to copy it to your clipboard by clicking on the Copy icon button next to the password field.
Downsizing your Figma layer fills
Enabling the Downsize Large Figma Image Fills toggle will automatically resize (and lightly compress) any Figma image fills on your layers to their actual layer size. This is useful if you’ve originally imported high resolution images to your Figma file, but then shrunk the layer dimensions down to be much smaller (with the original large image file still being used).
One common case of this would be adding a large image from Unsplash (or another stock photo site/plugin), the resizing that layer to be used as a much smaller “card” or “avatar” image. This can cause the performance of your Figma file to slow down and potentially crash when exporting these layers via the Pitchdeck export options; so using this feature will help save file size and improve page performance in your Figma file.
Adding password protection to your PDF
If you would like your exported PDF file to require a password before it can be opened, you can enable the Require a password to open the PDF file setting, then set your own password in the password input field. Ensure that you give this password to anyone you’re sending the exported merged PDF file to, or they won’t be able to open the file to view its contents.
