PDF Export is broken on Power BI Desktop

Problem:

When I export my PBI Desktop report using the new Export to PDF feature, the output PDF file crops by 10% random pages (as if it was zooming into the page).

This is clearly a bug, because from 1 export to the next, the cropped pages are not the same ones.

Miraculously, I get a non-cropped file once in a blue moon.

 

Needless to say: it makes the Export to PDF feature completely useless.
I'm better off going through the hassle of screen capturing all pages and making a PDF out of it.

 

Email me at ataron@voirmeschiffres.com for examples of the problematic output.

Was this issue resolved?


Since the update,
I noticed that I can now export my PDF report without the previous cropping.
