Can I export my Map, Sequence or Alignment as a vector-based graphic?

Exporting Map View

To export Map view as a vector-based graphic, choose map view and click menu File → Export → Map. You can choose to export in a number of file formats including vector-based PDF or SVG formats. See the lesson Export a DNA, RNA or Protein Map as an Image for more information.

Exported PDF or SVG files can be opened and edited in vector-based drawing programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape. Once imported into an editor you will need to "ungroup" and/or "release clipping masks" to edit individual elements of the image.

Exporting Sequence View or Alignments

To export a vector-based graphic of your Sequence view or of pairwise/multiple alignments you should print to a PDF.

You can also export Map view by this method.
