Export Sway to PDF, Word document, or PPT presentation
The ability to export a Sway, whether as a PDF file, or as input to Word or PowerPoint. Sway's experience is responsive web, but it's also a powerful modular template engine for other platforms.
We are very happy to announce that you can now export your Sway to Word or PDF file: go to the “…” menu at the top right, click “Export”, and choose between Word or PDF file formats. Thanks!
I keep receiving an error when I try to export my Sway. "Sorry, something went wrong, and we can’t export your Sway." I've duplicated the Sway, removed videos, tried to export to word and pdf, tried different browsers, but keep receiving this error. What is going on?

Where does the pdf or word document go???

I'm trying to export to PDF, but I get the message that I need a internet connection. My internet connection is working fine, but it still doesn't work. Can anyone help or is there a bug at the moment?
How do I keep the formatting I have on my ONLINE Sway when exporting to a pdf?

Exporting to PDF really messes up my design/formatting and Word... well let’s just not talk about that.
I'm still unable to export Sway to PDF even after having several updates from Windows 10. Can you tell me what I can do to resolve this issue.
Hi! would you please be so kind to tell us if you know, how to make a mind map on Sway?

Okay. I just discovered that the rep was only partially correct. The "..." menu on the PC app does not provide an 'Export' option. HOWEVER, the browser version does.

Sways to RTF or .doc files. For content originating in Sway format, a source file for offline editing would be a plus.
Sway is beta at best, since it claims this "PDF" functionality but it appears sometimes and sometimes not. Second, I tried to move 15 jpeg slides into a "slide show" and it starts importing them, then repeatedly says "Sway stumbled We need to refresh Sway to fix the problem" and then gives me the option to "refresh" or "my sway". When I (repeatedly) select "refresh", it then says, "UH Oh. Looks like something went wrong. Don't worry though, we made a note of the error and will investigate it. Please refresh the page to continue to use sway" I hit "refresh" and the endless, useless cycle continues.
The only way to export is to visit the share link and click the "..." menu from there. Why is this feature not built in to the app?
Can't seem to find the export button/option :(

This was not working for me while signed in. Received an error and had to refresh.
I created a 'shared' link, opened it up in another browser (without signing into Office 365), and export worked.
Results aren't ideal out of the box, but the file is easy to edit as needed.

Wow finally! I hope this feature will also make it to the store app though.
Good morning – I got an update that this is now possible. However I cannot find the button. Can you please confirm this option is available? PB
