Export to PDF vs Pandoc export to PDF

What is my problem

I am trying to export generated content to a PDF file (preferably to Latex as well)

What the difference between Obsidian’s native “Export to PDF” ability and the “Export to PDF” ability that is offered by Pandoc? I have tried to render the output of embedded/inline operations (such as DataView, Numerals and embedded files linked with [[…]]) to PDF (via Latex). If I use the Pandoc plugin the rendered content that was generated with these methods do not appear in the output. Only the query code is translated to the PDF file. However, if I make use of the native Obsidian “Export to PDF” ability it does generate a PDF file that contains the generated content. It just does not generate the Latex that I am looking for.

So, what is the difference between the native Obsidian method and the Pandoc method that results in the one method rendering the output and the other one not rendering it?

Pandoc is based on markdown or Pandoc’s Markdown. There is no support for Dataview, Numerals or other Obsidian community plugins. In addition file embed syntax ![[…]] is not supported in Pandoc.

I personally recommend taking scrolling screen captures to export and share content. This article is for Windows: How to Capture a Scrolling Screenshot in Windows - Make Tech Easier
