This feature would be very useful to iOS and Mac developers, as Xcode does not support vector symbols/images in SVG format (only PDF is supported). This means Pixelmator Pro currently cannot be used to export vector assets for iOS / Mac development. While you can currently export raster assets at multiple scales with Pixelmator Pro, vector assets have become the preferred norm.

Pixelmator is a best-in-class Apple citizen, so I think this would be a great gap to fill for Apple developers.

Hey there, the idea is great but, at the moment, Pixelmator Pro exports to PDF in what is is essentially raster format. So the first step would be adding support for exporting to PDF with vector data intact. We'd like to do so, but there's quite a lot of work involved and not a huge priority just now.
