PDF Export with huge white margins

It seems that since the December update the "Export to PDF" is buggy and the actual report area is surrounded by white margins on all sides.

 

page size (for all pages): 16:9

Fit to size activated for all pages

filter pane minimized

Usual Export routine to DIN A4 sized pages

 

Has anyone experienced this or knows of a fix?

Status: Accepted

Update:

Currently it has been confirmed a known issue and will be fixed in the upcoming February release of Power BI Desktop.

 

You can try to turn off the preview feature "Power BI Infrastructure Update" in the options dialog to check it again.

Hi there!

We have the exact same issue described by IanL above in PBI Desktop. This is an in-use, client facing report, which currently cannot be used due to the issue. Which is a major problem.

We tried exporting the pdf from PBI service. There the margins were ok (narrow, consistent as in November) but the results were even worse overall; e.g. unexpected line breaks in text containers, scroll bars appearing in visuals, reverting to a standard font despite the font being installed properly.

Is there perhaps a way to downgrade to the November desktop version until this is fixed?

Thank you and best regards,
Chris

Has this been fixed now as expected in the Feb update? I'm still having the issue.

@craigsmwhite the issue disappeared for me but I can't remember if it was the Feb or Mar version. I'm currently running the March one and the issue is gone.

I've got the March version but still have the issue so hopefully there's some setting I've just overlooked.

I'm using april 2022 version  (v 2.104.941.0) and I'm still facing the problem.

Is there any options I should change?

Hi, well my problem is solved, so your issue must be something different.

I can only recommend to check for these things:
