Describe the bug
When I export a canvas as image (Full Canvas mode) I get an image, but with vertical transparent stripes from top to bottom. I tried a different monitor and half the image is transparent. My suspicion is this: While exporting there is (what is supposed to be a popup) window that appears next to the main obsidian window. It does not float because I use a tiling window manager. In the case of a separate monitor the Obsidian window was the only one on that workspace (excluding the tiled popup) so that is probably why I got 1 stripe and not 2 or more.
So are you actually screenshotting a window to export the canvas?
- Create a large canvas with many nodes. I guess it only needs to be large in one direction.
- Use a tiling window manager (Manjaro has i3 community edition ISO, so you can virtualbox that)
An image with the entire content of the canvas, no transparent stripes!
(This is one image)
