Export to PDF Moves Shapes

Hi There,


When I export my PBI file to PDF the shapes I use move and I can't figure out how to make them stop without recreating them. Here is the file in desktop:


And then when I export it:


You can see the grey box on the right moved to the bottom of the page. It seems small but man is that a pain. Any ideas?

Hi @mtroiano ,


You may try to disable the option "filtering experience" (find path: File -> Options and Settings -> Options -> Current File \ Report settings), see the similar case.


If it is convenient, could you share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the issue, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.
