    Hi All, Hope you're doing well. I have a concern in the export option on PBI to PDF or PowerPoint, when the view is big and you need to scroll down, that functionallity loss his purpose because what is exported is only a screenshot of the main view of each tab, did you have a workaround or solution on this? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Antonio,
    Here are some ideas for a workaround.

    Consider changing the page size in Power BI Desktop.
    A page size of 16:9 ratio should look OK.
    Custom page sizes, for example, 1080 pixels by 5100 pixels, will probably look like narrow strip of paper in PDF.

    Another workaround is to try Paginated Report Builder.  You can download from PBI Service.
    FAQ at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/paginated-reports-faq
    and Power BI Report Builder

    Recent articles by Microsoft indicate that we can create paginated reports without PBI Premium.
    I have not tried this yet.

    If you or anyone has other ideas please tell us.
    Good Luck.
