We are testing out the new feature - Export to PDF - in the Power BI service, and it doesn't work for most of our reports. We checked the limitations that are published and we seem to be within them, so not sure why it doesn't work.After about 5 minutes we get this message:
Unable to export to PDF
We couldn't export your report to a PDF file

If if we do get this to work it is useless for us in the state anyhow since it only uses the default slicer states and not what the user has selected. So, looking forward to be able to capture the pdf with the current filter/slicer settings.

There are a few considerations to keep in mind with the Export to PDF feature:
- The Export to PDF feature is only available with Power BI Desktop, and is not currently available in the Power BI service.
- The feature does export custom visuals, but it does not export any wallpaper you may have applied to the report.
