PDF Export - compression options to reduce file size
Exported PDF are too big. Please add compression options like InDesign.
As of XD version 26, exported PDF file size is down by up to 90%, while retaining the current quality level.
Thank you for all your feedback!

32 Mb per 2 pages only !!
As a workaround I started to export artboards as JPGs and then convert them to PDFs. Not perfect, but file size is manageable.

Pleased it's a big issue and still no compression option in 2019.
I can still get the pdf file compressed on illustrator though :/.
How are we supposed to get anyone onboard if you can't export a usable PDF?

Exporting to PDF results in a file 4 times bigger than the actual MB of images used.
Its a MUST!!!
Yes please. PDF sizes are outrageously large. They certainly aren't 'Portable Document Formats'. Should be a fraction of the size.
How a program is released without this basic function is beyond me. This is one of the many reasons why I barely utilize Xd.
I have the same problem. XD is such a great tool, but only 3 artboards have nearly 50MB when exported as PDF file and after optimizing in Acrobat just 2 MB less. Conclusion: this function is useless then. Could you PLEASE add compression options. Thanks a lot!!!

Please introduce this! It's so basic and hard to share files with clients that have no internet connection in meetings!!
