Save as image
Export boards as a JPG image - Small, Medium and Large - and as a PDF file in Vector quality (vector quality is only saved as a PDF file). Select the quality and choose the part of the board that you wish to export.
Saving the part of the board as an image
You can export individual frames as JPG images. To do this, right-click the needed frame - you will then see the context menu - choose Export as image:
Saving the frame as an image
With vector export, you can preserve the image quality when exporting large boards.
💡If you want to export the whole board as an image, select all objects on your board with the shortcut (Ctrl + A for Windows/ ⌘ + A for Mac), click three dots to create a frame around them, and then export this frame as an image.
Creating a frame around selected objects
Please note, that bitmap images on the board are still compressed during the upload, whereas objects created in Miro (shapes, stickers, text, links, etc.) will keep their quality.
Save as PDF
This option allows you to export Frames as a PDF document - Small or best Vector quality. To export the board as a PDF file, you need to create at least one frame. Each frame will become a separate page in the resulting PDF document.
Exporting board as a PDF file
Please note that the PDF export means that all frames are exported as a single file. If you'd like to export only some of the frames, remove the other ones and undo this action after the export. Or select several frames and export them via the context menu.
✏️ The order of the frames in exported PDF is the same as in the Frames panel. You can change the order of the frames by dragging them.
Changing the order of the frames
💡If you want to export the whole board as a PDF file, select all objects on your board with the shortcut (Ctrl + A for Windows/ ⌘ + A for Mac) and click three dots in order to create a frame around them. Then choose Export as image on the frame context menu and select Vector on the next pop-up.
Exporting the whole board as PDF
Note that Vector export is available on paid plans only. Free plan users can export a frame as PDF via the board export menu. To exclude inner frames from the export, delete them and undo this action after the export.
⚠️ Links are clickable on exported Vector PDF files only.
✏️ Exporting frames with a large number of widgets may cause a disruption in the export process (e.g. some text on the exported PDF files might be missing). For optimal performance, we recommend dividing large boards into several frames and exporting each frame separately. Check this article to see more tips for optimizing board export.

Save board as template
Create and share custom templates with your team to ensure scalability and consistency of team processes. Choose the Save as a Template option in the Export menu - the whole board will be saved as a template.
Download board backup
The backup feature allows you to create archived copies of your boards. You can access those boards later by uploading them back to Miro. Find more information in the corresponding article: Board Backup.
Embedding a board created in Miro is a great way to share your work with your blog followers or visitors of your website without sending invitations. All the changes you make to the board will be reflected in the embedded window. See more in Embedding Editable Boards into Websites.
Export to spreadsheet (CSV)
Available in: Chrome, IE and Firefox browsers
All the stickies and texts in a single frame can be exported to a CSV file. To do that select the needed frame and choose Export to CSV in the context menu:
Exporting frame to a CSV file
As a result, you will have a CSV file with the board content put into a column in the following order: text - card description - URL - sticky note/card tags.
You can also select several objects that include text and export them as a CSV file.

Save to Google Drive
Use this option to create a link to your board in your Google Drive directory. This way it becomes accessible just like one of the files or documents stored to your Drive. Click the board icon within the Google Drive interface to open a new instance of Miro in your browser.
⚠️ Note that the board data are not actually stored in Google Drive, it only keeps the board link.
⚠️ The option to save a board to Google Drive is not available for guest editors.

Choose Save as image or Save as PDF in the Export menu. Now you can print out the exported document.
Frequently asked questions
- I don't have the option to export Miro board. Why?

The export option may also be restricted in board content settings by the board owner.
- How do I allow my board collaborators to export the board?
- Check your board content settings and make sure that the option to copy board is available for board participants. You may also need to ask your admin to allow copying board content to users outside the team.
- Can I export my board in PPT/PNG/SVG format?
- No, at the moment, you can save your boards as PDF/JPG/CSV files.
- Are comments included in the exported document?
- No, but we have this feature in our backlog.
- Can I export the card description?
- Yes, if you export your cards as a CSV file, the description will appear in the file.

- No, but you can replace frame titles with text widgets which will be displayed in the document.

- When I'm working on my board, are all changes automatically saved?

- At the moment, CSV export doesn't keep board structure and relationships. However, if you export tables as CSV file, the structure is saved.
- Can I export a board on mobile device?
- Our Mobile app doesn't support the option to export boards as it has limited functionality, compared to the browser version, Desktop App and Tablet App.
