Is there a way to have Sketch export all artboards to a single PDF at 2x?
You can use the plug-in "PDF Export — Sketch Plugin" with the option "Export as PNGs into PDF" which allow you to set a resolution multiplier.
This will enable you export all artboards to a single pdf file at 2x.
You can download the plug-in from the github repo here.
Nope, there isn’t a way to export all artboards to a PDF, but there is a way to export artboards as PNGs or PDFs, then combine them into a single PDF using Automator.
- Select all the artboards you’d like to export.
- Click the
+near the bottom right of the window to add an export item.
- Set it to
2x(not quite sure why you want it at 2×?).
- Click the export toolbar button near the top right of the window.
Automator(it’s in your Applications folder).
- Find the
Combined PDF Pagesaction and drag it to the pane on the right.
- Select all your PDFs in the Finder and drag them above the
Combined PDF Pagesitem you just added.
- Click run.
You should now have a combined PDF on your desktop, with all your artboards.
The PDF Export — Sketch Plugin works well for larger artboards. Unless I'm missing something, it does not work well with smaller artboards because it aligns them vertically (and also by name, which may/may not help depending on your case). So if you hundreds of 24x24 artboads like icons, you'll end up with 30 page PDF.
I'm still looking for a solution but for now the quickest way for me was to give all the artboards no name and then take several screenshots and piece together. I was able to do this with 6 screenshots. I'm only using this to share with my Team so super high resolution was not important. If high res is important, don't use this method.
