FundedView inPrint to PDF - Linked text not preserved#2372

skrodalcreated this issue 5 months ago

Current behavior

Linking text in MD, e.g. [click here](, renders fine in Boostnote, however when printing the document to PDF the link is not preserved (i.e. "click here" is no longer a clickable link).

Expected behavior

When exporting to PDF, linked text should be preserved.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new note and paste "[Click here]( to search with Google"
  2. File->Print, select Adobe PDF, and click Print (save to drive)
  3. Open the saved PDF and observe that there is no linked text in the output


  • Version : Boostnote 0.11.9
  • OS Version and name : Windows 10
  • Adobe Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 2018.011.20058

Suggested solution

A dedicated export to PDF feature (rather than printing), or otherwise find a way somehow to fix it with the current printing approach.

At the moment, in order to share any notes with links I will need to rewrite any part referencing links. This is counter intuitive, since I make use of the great built-in feature that automatically brings in the web page title when pasting links.
