The *only* built in export format that retains graphical elements is
Snapshot Format. You can use third party software to create a PDF file as
an alternative.

Stephan Lebans has a free utility that takes the Snapshot Format output and
embeds it inside an RTF file. While still not fully editable, it can at
least be opened with any software that can open an RTF file.
