Export to PDF Bug - Content Shrink Creating Unwanted White Space

Hi, 
The Desktop PowerBI Export to PDF function is shrinking our content, creating an approximate 1/4" white space all around the page.    We are using Page Size letter with visual elements that bleed to the edge.  We would expect the Export to PDF function to respect our layout intact, rather than shrinking it and introducing white space. 

We can provide examples if needed.

Does anyone have a workaround or bug fix?

Many thanks,
Martin

Hi, This issue has not yet been resolved.  Below are images illustrating the problem.  It's not data or visualization specific, any data, image, visualization or text laid out as bleed to edge exhibits the same behavior when initiating Export to PDF; an unexpected and unwanted white margin is added all around.

Hello, I've recently started using the Power BI web service and am also experiencing a similar issue. Whenever I export a report, the image of the report seems to shrink and get pushed to the bottom left of the PDF, as shown in the image. (I've shaded the white space to make it easier to identify.)error sample.png

I've used different browsers and different view settings but I get the same result.
