Export Assets as PDF
Add PDF to list of export options for Vector assets in addition to just SVG.
PDF contain embedded sizing information (in points), allowing assets to be used directly in iOS with no manual rasterization necessary.
This would allow an iOS/OSX developer to export vector assets just once, and import directly into XCAssets library immediately with no intermediate steps.
Here's how this is accomplished with Illustrator today: http://martiancraft.com/blog/2014/09/vector-images-xcode6/
Our July release will have options to export selected artboards or assets to a single PDF or multiple PDF files.

Can we please have more control on PDF export like :-
1. Name Single PDF other than whatever the XD file name is
2. Flatten PDF page on export to reduce file size when sharing
3. Select scale to export at such as 1x, 2x, 3x (when flattened)
The text in the exported pdf is not in its original form. A sentence or a phrase is split into letters. Please fix this.
Please, export pdf with user's arrangement. It's nonsense to export all artboards sequential.
Josh Curtis commented
It would be really nice to have this looked at again. I'd love to be able to print out all or a large section of all of my artboards on a single page.
This is now in our public update. Please download an update and give us feedback!
great news! can't wait to give it a try.
