Export wireframes


i am creating wireframe and would like to export the board as image. I am using one of the default wireframing template which has the smartphone vector. Is there anyway that when i export the board, it will include the “smartphone”? currently when i export, it will only export the content inside the “smartphone”. Either I create rectangle shapes to hold each content, or my content is just like floating object in the image.

Hi there,

The team told me that this is expected behavior for now. These new wireframes behave as our usual frames and export the content only.

@Marina -

Can you check with the product team if this behavior is by design (i.e. wireframe templates are not exported in either JPG or PDF formats, only the contents within the template) as that seems really odd?

Hi @Tammie Leung,

 

Congrats for finding a pretty significant bug! I tried a few experiments and the Phone, Tablet, and Browser wireframesm and all of them will not properly export. As you say, only what you place inside will export. Attached is an image of an export that I tested in jpg and vector pdf, and as you can see, the phone, tablet, and browser frames are not there, only the other elements. Below this is a screenshot of the export I was trying to make.

 

Here is a link for reporting bugs, and I suggest you submit this and see what the support team has to say about this. https://help.miro.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017731413-How-to-Report-Bugs

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks @Marina -

I guess in the interim the best workaround would be to use a third-party screenshot tool such as Snagit to capture the full content including the wireframe template itself.

2-3 months since this was raised is there a fix implemented or on its way or a workaround? Currently exporting the images and re-adding the wireframe which is tedious.

I’m having the same problem here. Made all my wireframes but the phone frame is never shown. Any updates on this?

I am having the same problem. I only use Miro to do wireframing but it’s kind of useless this way.

Is there some way we can vote on this issue? It would really be great if this can be resolved. Or at least published with the wireframe that it’s a known issue.

@AmK / @mvandillen / @Nicolas Schepers / @Rob McNeill / @Jonathan White / @Kiron Bondale:

It looks like wireframe object’s “frames” are now included in a vector/PDF export:
