Export to PDF in 3.0.7 does not include symbols


#1

I use symbols for the headers, footers and other common elements in a project with ~40 mockups.
With 3.0.7 when I export all the all of the mockups to pdf, all of the symbols appear as “Symbol not found”.

All of the symbols appear when I am editing the mockups within Balsamiq 3.0.7 and they also appear correctly when i use the Full screen presentation.
This function worked just fine in all previous versions I have used (3.0.3, 3.0.5, 2.2, etc.)

This is Critical functionality for me, as I post the wireframes as a linked pdf for team members to use.

I experience the same issue. On several of the pages the dreaded “Symbol not found” box appears instead of the content in the PDF…it is fine in the mockup.


#3

Worse yet, the same issue occurs with Export -> Project to PNGs seem to have the exact same issue. The only way around this is to export PNGs 1 at a time… not exactly the quickest workflow.

Hi everyone. So sorry for this regression. The fix is ready and you can test it with the build on http://balsamiq.com/download/next/ - we are doing some final testing and planning on releasing an official 3.0.8 release today.
