If you try to export an artboard as PDF but you have a 3D transformed image on it (I haven't tested if the same happens with objects in general), the image wither doesn't show at all or it shows very deformed. I had to export the artboard as a JPG first, bring it back to Xd and export again as PDF, that's the only way it worked.

I tried to export XD artboard as a PDF file,
but the object which uses 3D transform tool disappears on PDF.
How can I make the object showing up on PDF? ;(
I need the PDF file for my cliant...
Sorry to hear about the trouble. We have already logged a bug for the issue and the team is working on a fix. You'll surely see an improvement in future releases.
When i exported an artboard in PDF format the 3d objects having images in it were all blurred out or having solid colours in them instead of the images please look forward to the issue. As it is visible in the image only a foreshadow of the object exported in a pdf form is visible.
Sorry for the trouble. This is a known bug and the team is working on it. You'll definitely see the improvements in the future releases of XD.
We're sorry for the inconvenience.
Hi, Is there any follow up?

Ah, the beauty of the Adobe Customer support. Bug looged for almost a year now, and it's still broken. At least we don't have to pay a high monthly subscription for this Alpha.
Bah ha ha ha. Read my mind. It's now May 2022 and it's still broken. I never use Microsoft Office anymore, and I can't wait to give Adobe the boot. Work is the only reason I still use it. And I do still love photoshop, but if I ever go freelance, I'll need to make a change.
My current prefrences over Adobe:
Figma > XD (work makes me use XD)
Davinci Resolve > Premier (work makes me use Premier)
Davinci Resolve, for my purposes = After Effects
Logic Pro > * 1000 than Audition (work doesn't care thank god)
And when I go freelance, Affinity will cover my needs nicely for Photoshop and Illustrator.
Sorry, Adobe. You are now far too corporate for a creative industry. Stop holding us hostage.
