Print a PDF of the complete report

Hello,

I have created a report.
This has various filters.
Below is a table.
Now, I would like to print out this report as a PDF.
I print this out on the PowerBI website.
But now I only get a partial printout.
Is there a way to print out the entire report with the entire table?

Thanks

Hi @Sentinel997 ,
When you try for a PDF export in Power BI, you will always have only the snapshot of data visible in your screen.
Currently there is no feature in Power BI to export complete table/grid/matrix values into PDF if they are not visible in the screen.
This is the reason why you can't see the values restricted through scrolls.

 

For the complete grid/table/matrix to be exported in PDF, you will need to create Paginated Reports which a different from the normal PBI reports.

Reference Link for Paginated Reports:

Hi @Sentinel997 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

>> But now I only get a partial printout

Which visual objects are not exported to pdf? Can you provide screenshots of the comparison between the two (report, pdf)?  Thanks.

The visual view/objects is printed out completely. But the list contains many more entries.

Actually, I only have one print screen.
