    Maybe I am missing something, but why do digital platforms need a PDF export? Just share the link. Nothing needs to be printed...

      Slide deck is a primary use case for us. Also invoices and resumes. All of these would be sent through email.

        But I don't understand why email needs PDF? Just send the link?

        What do you mean by slide deck? As in a powerpoint show? Surely that would use JPG?

          Keeping a permanent record of something. PNGs and JPGs don't allow text selection.

            Surely the permanent record is "the" file. Figma has version control. So you are never going to "lose" anything.
