Image downloads for PRO users include the white background again. The export with a transparent background made sharing designs on social media difficult. As a PRO user you can download your design as a HQ image with a transparent background—for example when you need it for printing. The HQ Export replaces the Print Section.
The Print Section has been replaced with the HQ Export which is a PRO feature now. You can still generate high quality exports for printing. But you can now longer buy your prints directly via CoaMaker.
