Page Designer - "Field deleted" on PDF export

I’m encountering a strange bug with Page Designer and the PDF export. Some dynamically filled values export as “Field deleted” on the PDF although they are showing up perfectly fine within the plugin (and are not deleted ofc). The fields do show up properly though when using the print dialogue.

This is how the preview within the Page Designer plugin looks like:

And this is how it looks on the exported PDF:

As you can see, some fields work just fine and others trigger the bug without any recognizable pattern to it.

This is on Self-Hosted DE 3.1 with Page Designer 1.0.99

Also the Page Designer plugin seems to have a problem with PNG files on export. They look OK in the preview but generate problems on PDF export. Mostly resulting in no export happening at all.

I realize that I am opening an old post, but I just wanted to check in and see if the problem is still around, especially with the improved page design plugin in SeaTable 3.4.

I will have a look and report back if the bug still shows up. Will be next week earliest though. Nice update btw!

I just had a quick look at the same base and the “field deleted” messages are still there in the PDF. Not sure if they would go away if I would re-populate the page maybe?! Don’t have the time right now to check unfortunately.

Before you continue testing, please make sure that you are on SeaTable Server v.3.4 and that you have the most recent plugin installed.

In case you test with Firefox, please use Chrome instead.

Yup, both version were updated before testing. We don’t use any chrome-based browsers here but I can install one to see if that makes any difference.
