PDF Export

Hi there,

I'm looking for a way to either "view an email online" or print my email as a pdf. At the moment, I'm having to send the email then use print screen to generate a pdf... There has to be a better way!

Hosting the email online would be ideal, but being able to export to pdf would be a nice partial solution...

Export to PDF was released to all BEE Pro users a few weeks ago! It's available on all plans.

  • Just log into your BEE Pro account
  • Select a message
  • Click on Export > Download a PDF file from the Messages page or the Message details page.

Let us know what you think!

Hi Chris, thanks for your feedback. Are you using BEE Free, BEE Pro, or BEE embedded in your application (BEE Plugin)?

Our users have also requested this. They'd like to be able to print a PDF or image of the email design so they can share it or store it physically, or print it out for display.

(We use Bee Plugin.)

I have used Bee Free but upgraded to Bee Pro to see if there were PDF export features, but found none. 

It would be beneficial to have an accessible PDF created from the accessible Bee Free/Pro marketing email. We have staff who have issues with forwarding emails and would prefer to print a PDF, and screencapping the shot destroys the accessibility of the marketing email. 

Being able to add alt tags to images and links have been one of the features that drew me to this tool since it makes things easier to create and send out for multiple devices.

We're using the BEE Plugin and also have users asking for this feature, be good to get an update if it's on the roadmap thanks Massimo and team.

Hi,

We were happy to see the pdf exporter.  We use BeePro to generate an occasional newsletter, which is sent out online and is also printed as a hard copy.  Thus far, we've had to completely re-do the newsletter from scratch in a graphic design program.  The pdf converter would solve this problem; however, when I tested it, it had one serious problem - the page breaks were in the wrong place.  Do you have a solution (or are you planning to add one) to help us see (or adjust) where the pages will break so that the hard copy also looks good?  This would be immensely helpful for us.  Thanks,

Yes, we've received other requests for the ability to set page breaks and we're looking into it. No ETA on it yet. Anything else that you feel could improve this "Save as PDF" feature?

Hi Massimo, if I can answer for your most recent question, the two issues I've noticed when exporting to PDF are:

  1. All sections with two side-by-side columns shift to left-justify in the PDF instead of remaining centered
  2. In my (relatively long) newsletter, even when I select "One long page" as the export option, my PDF doc just gets clipped right at the end, leaving 2 pages in the doc (with page 2/2 being 95% blank space)

Really really grateful for the PDF export option--thank you guys a lot!

Hi Donald, I'm opening a support ticket from your message. We need some details to reproduce the issues and troubleshoot them.
