Pitch presentations can be exported as a PowerPoint or a PDF file from the Share menu.

Export a presentation from the desktop or web app

  1. Click Share in the top right of the presentation

  2. Select Export from the sharing options.

  3. Choose your desired format from the list. You can choose from a Compressed PDF, a High Quality PDF, and a PowerPoint file.

  4. If you're currently on our Free plan, you can export to PowerPoint with the addition of a small Pitch watermark in bottom corner. We'll remind you of this before you export.

  5. When the file is ready, a pop-up will appear on the bottom of the screen letting you know that your PowerPoint file is ready to use. On the desktop app, you'll also get the option to choose a destination for your file. On the web app, it'll go to your browser's default download destination.

💡You can also export the presentation from the quick menu. Press Command + K (or Control + K on Windows) and then search for Export. It will be in the listed options.

Export a PDF from our mobile apps

  2. Tap on the options in the top right corner to open the share menu

Once the PDF is created you can share it via your favorite app.

Supported and unsupported elements

There are some elements that might not export the way you’d expect. Supported elements of your original presentation should export to a PPTX or PDF file seamlessly.

Supported elements in a PowerPoint export:

  • Slides

  • Images (JPG, PNG, SVGs). Please note that GIFs may not play in PowerPoint web

  • Text (Bullet colors take the text color of the list item)

  • Shapes

  • Tables

  • Speaker notes

  • Embedded videos from Vimeo, Youtube. Thumbnails will not be included in the export.

  • Charts (these may look different in the export based on PowerPoint’s formatting)

  • Fonts will be included in the export. However, we cannot always embed the font into the PowerPoint file (in some cases it can fall back to Calibri). In order to display the correct font, it needs to be installed on your computer.

How long does an export take?

Presentations with lots of slides or very media-heavy presentations with lots videos and images might take a few minutes to export.

Can I export to PowerPoint on mobile?

It is not possible to export to PowerPoint our mobile app.

Is it possible to use this feature in offline mode?

Exporting while offline is not possible. If you need the PPTX file and you know you will be without internet, we recommend exporting ahead of time or presenting directly from Pitch in offline mode.
