I would like to request the addition of an “Export UI as Images” feature in SquareLine Studio. This feature would allow users to export their UI designs as image files (such as PNG, JPG, or webp) to easily share them with others or use them in documentation or presentations.
Here are the specific options that I believe should be included in this feature:
- A dropdown menu to select the scale percentage, such as 100%, 200%, 500%, etc. This would allow users to export UI designs with increased pixel density if needed.
- An input field or a dropdown menu to specify the dimensions of the exported image, either in pixels or a predefined unit (e.g., pixels, inches, centimeters, etc.). This would enable users to export the UI designs in custom sizes according to their requirements.
- An input field to specify the desired filename for the exported image. This would allow users to assign meaningful names to the exported files, making them easier to identify and organize.
Currently, SquareLine Studio lacks the ability to directly export UI designs as images. As an alternative, users can take screenshots of their designs using external tools or capture the screen during the preview. However, having an integrated export feature would be more efficient and convenient for users.
Sharing UI designs: Users often need to share their UI designs with team members, stakeholders, or clients who may not have direct access to SquareLine Studio. Being able to export the UI as an image would simplify the sharing process.
Documentation and presentations: Exporting UI designs as images would facilitate the inclusion of visuals in documentation, tutorials, blog posts, or presentations. It would allow users to illustrate concepts, demonstrate specific features, or provide examples without the need for additional screenshots or manual conversions.
Collaborative feedback: When collaborating with others, exporting UI designs as images can be useful for gathering feedback or conducting design reviews. Users can easily annotate the exported images or provide visual comments, making it easier to communicate and iterate on the design.
Design portfolio: For UI/UX designers who want to showcase their work, exporting UI designs as images would be beneficial for creating a portfolio. They can compile a collection of visually appealing images representing their designs and easily present their work to potential clients or employers.
Adding the requested “Export UI as Images” feature with options to choose supported formats, scaling options, dimensions, and filename would greatly enhance the usability and versatility of SquareLine Studio, making it more convenient for users to share and utilize their UI designs outside the software.
Thank you for considering this feature request, and I appreciate your continuous efforts in improving SquareLine Studio.
