Export to PDF from Power BI Service?

Hi,

 

' Export to PDF' feature in Power BI Desktop works well.

I also tried the 'Save as PDF' from the "Print" (Print current page) File menu.

 

I did make sure that these two things should be set before 'Save as PDF'.

1) View > Fit to page in Power BI Service (to avoid the scroll bar in the PDF)

2) In Print > 'Save as PDF', select 'Background graphics' to retain the images and background colors used in the report.

But the problem is there are lot of extra space apart from the actual page size. If I set it back to 'Fit to width', the 'Save as PDF' will have a scroll bar. Also, I see the tiles move from actual set pixel during this effort.

Is there any workaround for these issues?

 

Anything in the pipleline for 'Export to PDF' from Power BI Service like one in Power BI Desktop?

Hi BBIUser,

 

I can reproduce your issue. However, by now there's no such option in power bi service which can let user export to pdf file perfectly. I would recommend you to use this feature in power bi desktop.

 

In addtion, you can vote for this idea to help power bi to make more improvement.

Sure. Thanks for the reply Jimmy Tao.

 

For Power BI Product Team,

Actually, it should be the other way around.

Most of the Clients and Users prefer Power BI Service having 'Export to PDF' more than the Power BI Desktop.
