Blur when PDF export?


I have problem with PDF export (Blur)


Please help me


Hi @thearabbit and sorry about that.

Improving the PDF export quality has been on our list for a while and our next major Desktop version will introduce high-resolution exports with selectable text. It’s already available in Balsamiq Cloud, our new native web version.

For now, the setting that will result in the best quality in Mockups 3 for Desktop is the Optimize for viewing on-screen option, as shown below.

Hope this helps! Any questions, we’re here! :slight_smile:


thanks, I will try.
Could we set Page Setup on the “Mockup Screen”?
Bc I would like to export with A4.


Thanks for sharing your need, @thearabbit. As I mentioned, our next major Desktop version will have optimized quality for the PDF exports.

Are you using a trial version of Mockups 3 for Desktop?

If so, maybe you could start a free trial for Balsamiq Cloud and give the PDF export a try there?

Let me know if you need any further help!


Thanks again, I will try
