Export sheet to PDF

Hi guys,

What are your thoughts with regards to the export sheet to PDF functionality? I have mainly two issues with it: missing titles and truncated tables.

I see both have forum threads that end up saying it is not possible to overcome the limitations:

Titles: https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Export-sheet-pdf/m-p/1607906

Tables: https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Sense-App-Development/Export-sheet-to-PDF-truncated-tables/m-p/14...

Do you have similar issues? Can we expect any improvement on the export to PDF feature in future releases?

Thanks

Re: Export sheet to PDF

We ran into this and the way we got around it was to use chrome-headless-render-pdf using python with a wait on the page render. Once the qlik sense app sheet rendered the headless chrome spat out the PDF and was better than relying on the native functionality.
