It is a while (forgot since which version) that I cannot export note to PDF using the native PDF export feature.
- Open a note.
- Click on the three dots and “Export to PDF”.
- Click “Export” on the export setting window and select a filename.
A PDF should be created.
Obsidian shows the progress dialog of the export (but it disappears very quickly) before showing “PDF saved to filename.pdf”. However, no file is created.
- Operating system: Fedora 35
- Debug info:
SYSTEM INFO: Obsidian version: v0.13.19 Installer version: v0.12.3 Login status: logged in Catalyst license: supporter Insider build toggle: on Live preview: off Legacy editor: on Base theme: dark Community theme: none Snippets enabled: 0 Safe mode: off Plugins installed: 31 Plugins enabled: 0 RECOMMENDATIONS: none
As you can see, I disabled all plugins and CSS snippets to test.
Opening Obsidian through the command line allows reading the following message:
(node:152102) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Error: Failed to generate PDF (Use `obsidian --trace-warnings ...` to show where the warning was created) (node:152102) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection. This error originated either by throwing inside of an async function without a catch block, or by rejecting a promise which was not handled with .catch(). To terminate the node process on unhandled promise rejection, use the CLI flag `--unhandled-rejections=strict` (see https://nodejs.org/api/cli.html#cli_unhandled_rejections_mode). (rejection id: 1) (node:152102) [DEP0018] DeprecationWarning: Unhandled promise rejections are deprecated. In the future, promise rejections that are not handled will terminate the Node.js process with a non-zero exit code.
I did not manage to open the developer tools to get access to more information.
