Filter Pane interferes with Export to PDF

The Export to PDF functionality is impacted by the new filter pane, perhaps unintentionally or perhaps it is not working as intended.

 

When I export with the filter pane expanded, the filter pane is accounted for in the space calculations (i.e. the filter pane would fit in the PDF export) but it is not actually in the export. When I collapse the filter pane, only the size needed for the dashboard itself is exported to PDF.

Hi @rutgerboll ,

 

Based on my test, it is not supported to show Filters Pane in PDF export. Here is an idea for you to upvote.

Hi @v-yulgu-msft , just to be clear, i dont want the filter pane to be included in the export. What i am saying is that the recent update is causing the filter pane to interfere with the PDF export.

 

PDF with filter pane hidden

 

PDF with filter pane turned on

Hi @rutgerboll ,

 

In my test, hidding or expanding filters pane didn't interfere the PDF export. Did you apply any page settings? Does this symptom occur in any report or specifc report?

@v-yulgu-msft That's odd. I didn't change anything when I upgraded to the latest version of PowerBI. And the example report I attached above is just using one of the sample datasets provided in the documentation.

 

It occurs in every report that I have now.

@v-yulgu-msft here is a link to the PBIX file that I used to generate the PDFs

edit: just noticed that if you have a scrollbar on the page it exports to the PDF too, even though the export is the appropriate size for the page.
