iA / Presenter / Support / Action


Export your presentation for sharing it. Depending on the format you chose, the slides –and the Speaker Notes– are ready for print, web publishing or to be opened on other apps for collaboration.

By default, iA Presenter uses a bundle file format. Bundles are a great way to package collections of files on Apple systems and they appear as regular folders elsewhere. This seemed a reliable choice for this first version of iA Presenter on macOS.

You can trigger the Export options from the menu FileExport.

You will see the list of the available export formats:

Note that the two last export options are still in Beta and need to be perfected thanks to your feedbacks.

Markdown Export

You can export your presentation to a regular Markdown file. The content on your slides together with your Speaker Notes will appear just like how you wrote them in the Editor.

All local images used in the document will be exported to the same folder, in the “Media”.

Markdown export offers simplicity, high portability, and compatibility with a wide range of apps, making it a favored choice for many writers, developers, and content creators.

PDF Export

iA Presenter has a high-quality PDF export with a variety of print-ready layouts. This is the best option if you need to share your presentation in a paper-friendly format.

Share only the slides, or the slides with the Speaker Notes. You can choose as well the orientation and paper format.

Seven layouts to choose from:

HTML Export

The HTML export allows you to make your slides available on your website.

It will generate a full package containing, your presentation, your graphics, the theme and the Javascript rendering engine.

Once exported, upload the files to your favorite hosting solution (e.g., GitHub Pages) and provide the URL to your audience.

The result will be as interactive as your live presentation with the rendering of dynamic elements such as videos or audio, and the responsive design.

💡 When uploading the files to your hosting solution, be sure to respect the folder hierarchy as you get it in the export. Do not upload all the files contained in folders separately. Depending on your hosting solution, you might have to rename “presentation.htm” to something else to be displayed correctly (e.g., “index.html” on GitHub Pages).

PPTX Export

This popular feature request is still in Beta.

In response to your valuable feedback, we’re launching a much-anticipated feature: PowerPoint export. This feature allows for seamless compatibility with key presentation apps like PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides.

From today, iA Presenter lets you export presentations into PowerPoint format, broadening the ways you can share your work.

Remember, the PowerPoint export feature is still in beta. Here is what it currently supports:

Feature Support
Text Style Text color, bold, italic
Lists Basic list without indentation level support
Presentation Backgrounds Plain colors and images (jpeg, png) with opacity support
Images png, jpg, partial support for SVG
Image size and position Position and size (cover/fit)
Videos mp4
Tables Tables with basic borders
Code blocks Syntax highlighting and block background
Maths Support for formulas with default font size and color
Header and footer Slide number, date, and custom text

Note: when you use custom fonts in your presentations, they may not display correctly on a system that doesn’t have them installed. Google Slides f.i. doesn’t offer custom fonts at all:

Images Export

This popular feature request is still in Beta.

Export your slides as .png or .jpeg images to easily integrate them into other software applications. You can add a prefix to the file names for better organization.

A folder with images of your slides will be created: one slide → one .png or .jpeg file.

If you want to export your slides in a specific layout, such as a square format for sharing on social media, you need to adjust their aspect ratio in the Settings before exporting.
