I'm using 3.4 version, and unable to export my map as different image types. It immediately says my export was successfully saved, but when I navigate to the folder it says I saved it in, nothing is there at all. This happens when I save as a JPEG, JPG, PNG, PDF.

  • Many amounts of layers and raster backgrounds with high dpi export can lead to strange things, can you give a few more details please?

  • After export completed you get a small, green infoline informing you that the output was successfully completed. Do you get this info? Did you click it? It opens the output folder.

  • Thanks for the input, all. I'm using Windows OS, tried exporting to a different folder, but unsuccessful. Upon exporting, I'm increasing from 300 dpi to 350 dpi, which is the level of res needed for our publication. I get small, green infoline babel mentioned, but when I click on it nothing happens.

My solution is: I deleted unwanted layers and set the layout to landscape. It did work.


What I did was create a new layout. I had little elements to add so it worked
