Re: Export PDF error: "Offscreen rendering failed"

I ran into this issue today trying to export a drawing as a pdf.

What library does freecad use to render the pdf?

Creating Parts for Assembly

Hi, First let me compliment the developers working on this project. From the time I first tried freecad (about two years ago) till now (latest from svn) things have improved exponentially.
