It's possible to save a deck as a PDF manually through your browser (currently Chrome is the only browser that this works with). This often resolves any issues with exporting decks that may occur.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. From your Deck Overview, paste the deck's link in your browser and replace everything from and including ?view= with /print?width=1121&height=793
    For example:
    (Note: This does not work if you're pasting the URL from within a slide)

  2. Hit Enter

  3. Select Chrome's native Print function (ctrl/cmd + p or choose Print from the File menu)

  4. Change Destination to Save as PDF

  5. Set Layout to Landscape

  6. Click to expand More settings

  7. Set Paper size to Letter

  8. Set Margins to None

  9. Check Background graphics and uncheck Header and Footer

  10. Click Save

Screenshotting your slides

If, for any reason, the above option doesn't work for you or you encounter any issues, there's an alternative approach you can consider. You can screenshot the slides of your deck individually. While this might be a bit more time-consuming, it's a reliable method to ensure you have a visual copy of each slide.

For Mac users:

  1. Navigate to the slide you want to capture.

  2. Press Command + Shift + 4.

  3. Drag to select the area of the slide you wish to capture.

  4. Release the mouse or trackpad button to take the screenshot. It will be saved to your desktop by default.

For Windows users:

  1. Navigate to the slide you want to capture.

  2. Press PrtScn to capture the entire screen, or Alt + PrtScn to capture only the active window.

  3. Open a program like Paint or Word, then paste (Ctrl + V) the screenshot.

  4. Save the file to your desired location.

Please repeat the steps for each slide in your deck.
