I am unable to open a new map I've just made in print composer if I use the Google Physical basemap layer. After I export the map I've made and try to open it on my desktop, it reads that the PDF is damaged and cannot be opened. I tried using other topographic base maps from the open layers plugin as well and had similar problems. The export works perfectly fine with arial and hybrid layers. Any suggestions?

  • Are you using the openlayers plugin? – ndawson May 3 '18 at 2:00

    Use the Quick Map Services plugin instead. – Ben W May 3 '18 at 4:07
  • @ndawson yes I am using open layers. – G.Clev May 7 '18 at 15:00
