Index links doesn't work in exported PDF - Power BI Report Builder

Hello everybody!

 

I'm having some problems when I'm trying to export to *.PDF in Power BI Report Builder.

The index clickable fields doesn't work in generated PDF (they doesn't exist anymore), but still works inside Report Builder.

If I try to export the report to a *.DOCX created, the index links works flawlessly.

If inside this generated *.DOCX, I export it for a *.PDF, the index links works normally too.

 

My goal is generate the *.PDF directly to avoid time-consuming efforts and avoid any kind of possibly "new trouble or bug" inside *.DOCX, since I would not the only user to do this process...

 

My version of Power BI Report Builder is 15.7.1797.84.

I've trying to use it with older versions, and the problem still the same.

 

Here is an example of how I'm creating the index:

- name the textbox target in "Bookmark" field (i.e., "glossary_index" )

- in the index "page", create another textbox ("Glossary") and point it to this bookmark created to generate a clickable target

- run this report and test if the link is working properly, clicking in "Glossary" and see if it appointing to the desired page.

 

Is there another solution for this issue, or some less complicated way to re-create an index in another form, if it's possible?
I don't know so much about this tool (new user, still learning the very basic functions)...

 

Thanks for the attention!

Hi @Edson_Silva ,

 

This is by design. Bookmarks are not supported in PDF rendering.

 

Reference: Export a paginated report to a PDF File (Report Builder)
