How do I save a drawing in an image file format (.png, .bmp, .jpg, ...)?

The .odg format used in the Draw module is not an image (bitmap) format, but a drawing (vector) format.

To save a Draw document in an image format:

  1. Select File ▸ Export from the main menu;
  2. Select the desired image type from the File format dropdown list;
  3. Either check Selection to export only the object(s) selected or leave it unchecked to export the entire drawing;
  4. Press Save.

A dialog box opens in which you can specify the image options (quality, resolution, transparency, ...) available in the chosen format.
