Images not printing when printing a report

Hi everyone,

When I print out a report, everything prints except images that I have in the dashboard.

Where the image should be is just a blank white space.


I have tried bringing the image to the front but it still does not print.

Has anyone else experience this/have a solution?

HI Team,

I'm facing issues in printing the dashboard and reports. 

In Reports - File - Print is not displaying Images and card visuals

Export to PDF - File contains all the pages including hidden pages , filters selected is not reflecting here

Export to powerpoint - works the same as export to pdf


Please provide  a way to print the dashboards and Reports with the actual visuals

Goto File -> Page Setup and check "Print Background Colors and Images" option in IE and FF in order to print the images and colors.

I'm having the same issue -- Would greatly appreciate any helpful suggestions.

@BSwan I received an email back from support yesterday to say that the issue has been logged.

Unfortunately I have not come up with a work-around to this as of yet.

Hope it can be corrected soon -- if you do hear back, please let us know!

For the time being, use Google Chrome. Printing images is stuffing up in IE & Firefox.


FYI, the issue has been around for some time and Microsoft has yet to fix it.

same here (tested by send to onenote). And pictures aren't visible neither for Dashboard, nor for Reports.

I guess this is some kind of bug. 


@jirineoral I have reported this issue to microsoft this morning.

It seems like a strange bug, but I cant wait for it to be fixed as the reports look nice when printed.


I never tested for dashboards, only reports so its good to know this also.
