Export PDF files

Export any frame as a PDF document

Exporting frames from a canvas

When a frame is selected, an Export PDF button is available in the design bar. Click this button to download a PDF file containing the contents of the selected frame.

To download all of the currently visible frames in the canvas, use the Export frames as PDF button from the canvas menu.

When exporting all canvas frames:

  • Each frame will be included as a separate page in the PDF file

  • Frames that have been hidden will not be included

Exporting frames from a report

When viewing a report, the options to export report frames are accessible from the canvas menu:

The available options are:

  • Export current page as PDF - this option will download a PDF file with a single page containing the current report page.

  • Export report as PDF - this option will download a PDF file containing all report pages as separate pages. Additionally, any frames that are visible within a report page will be included too.


Who can export PDFs?

Anyone that can view the canvas or report can export a PDF file.

What data is included in the PDF file?

When exporting a PDF, Count will include everything that is currently visible within the frame. If, for example, a cell has not finished loading yet, then that data will not be included in the PDF.

For tables, depending on the current scroll position of the table there may be columns and rows included in the PDF that are clipped outside the visible region of the table, and so will be included and selectable, but not visible.

Images are embedded into the PDF file, including those generated by Python cells.

Comments are not included in the PDF file.

How long does PDF export take?

The PDF export is performed in your browser, and so is usually very quick. For a highly complex frame, this process can take up to approximately 20 seconds. If you find an export is taking a surprisingly long time, please contact Count support with a link to the frame.
