How can I export my map fully expanded?

When I export it as png or pdf, it generates it collapsed. Not sure why. Is it possible to export it fully expanded?

    Ditto on Google Chrome. I think there is an issue with expand/collapse settings not saving when selected via the right-click "show details" option. If you reopen your map and expand topics using the spacebar, instead of by right-clicking, does this fix the export?

    Hi @shikida,

    I have tested to export one of my MindMaps with expanded topics (via Spacebar) on Chrome (png and PDF) and it worked perfect. So I can confirm @Emily's question and I think the thoughts about the dependence on the browser type of @Rooster McNugget are going in the right direction too.

    Best, Jörg

    Up on this. I have a mind map with hundreds of items. PNG export only export part of it. Tested on Firefox and on Chrome. Both fails to show the full mindmap.

    1- The missing part
    2- Exported PNG

    PS: I am really frustrated because I've upgraded exclusively because of the PNG export.

    @Leandro Rossa - did you try expanding that node by pressing the space bar? For some reason I've found that expand/collapsing via right-click doesn't save on my map (hence won't be included in export), but spacebar-extended maps do.
