PDF Export From Desktop not Exporting Full Pages



I posted this in the help section of the community, but I believe it is a bug with the most recent update (October 2023).


I routinely export desktop PBI reports to PDF for sharing in newsletters. Today, for some reason, when I exported to PDF, only about the top left quarter of each page is exported instead of the full page. 


I have attempted exporting multiple different reports, closing and re-opening Power BI, and restarting my computer to no avail. Nothing in my report has changed other than refreshing the data. Each page is the default 16:9 720x1280 size.


I was able to successfully export from a report published to the online workspace, but not desktop. A coworker was also able to successfully export from desktop with the August 2023 update. 


Link to help thread with numerous others with the same issue


Any help in getting this resolved would be appreciated!

I was able to make it work....

actually you have to play with the canvas dimensions and see what is the result. It's a bit of trial and error.

If your canvas is a 1000 by 1800 and the result seems zoomed in, then change it to 1500 by 2500 and see how it works.

Thank you very much! Actutally it makes sense, I multiplied height and width with 1.503 and it worked fine on all of my reports!

We need a solution ASAP. We have to report 50 pages. We did it with screenshots. 


Thank you in advance

I got the same problem, I realize the print was 50% cutted.

so.... my canvas size in powerbi was from 800px x 1300 px. (height x width)

Keeping the ratio of my canvas (8/13), I resize the canvas to 1200px x 1950px. (height x width)

In your powerbi will see the big canvas and empty space to right and bottom, but in the printing you will get the results as you expected.

You can publish your report to and export to PDF from the browser.
I will update here if there is any progress, so please be patient.

My problem when I submitted to the web and exporting from there, was that some complex graphics are not allowed to print from there. That's why my temporary fix was the canvas resize thing. Thanks for the reply and working around the problem. I see too that putting the canvas to your screen size resolution fixes it, but the problem with that is that you must resize all your elements in the powerbi.

@v-xiaoyan-msft My report has over 60 Page and this workaround won't work for me

I was able to print it to PDF, but you need to export your report to Power BI desktop, Also, the report must be less than 50 Pages, so if more split it (Hide Pages).

Good Luck

Like @AMINEBEN123 said one workaround if you have more than 50 pages is to split your report to parts.. for example if you have 100 pages split it to two parts and publish each part to the power bi services then export it to pdf.. it should work just fine..
