Qlik Sense Exports of Embedded sheets in stories is not WYSIWYG

When exporting stories that are embedding sheets, it does not display the entire sheet.

Objects are truncated, even when trying several resolution and DPI settings.

The only approximate workaround is to zoom in or out in chrome.





The embedded sheet export in Sense Printing (so QSE on Windows) is not WYSIWYG and this is by design, for these reasons mainly:

  • the title of the sheet is not exported so the other elements are slightly stretched vertically to take up all the available space
  • the fonts are set according to the language and are not the fonts used by the browser since these fonts can not be embedded inside a PDF or PowerPoint
  • a chart gets rendered at the backend in order for an image to be generated but this leads at times to minor inconsistencies like a minibar appearing, which in turn leads to a different appearance
