Are there any configuration options for "Print or export as PDF" widget in the Sidebar instant app?

I seem to be getting mixed results from the "Print or export as PDF" widget.  It appears browser version & windows version affect the exported results.

Is there any addition configurations I can adjust to help normalize the results across the users experience.  If it helps I would happily drop the Tile, Map and Scale bar, while they are nice, it's the pop-up results that is really the most important in the export.

I will go into more details below:

  • Sometimes the Tile, Map and Scale bar appear on the same page, other times it’s split over multiple pages.
  • The pop-up contains an html table, which is visible sometimes, and other times is not visible in the export.

I am including the dev. version of a Sidecar instant app. The "Print or export as PDF" widget may be removed in the future.  As this app will be public facing the mix print results with the "Print or export PDF" is problematic.

I tested the app across 3 browsers (Chrome/FireFox/Edge) & Windows 11/10.  Oddly enough it seems Edge gave the best results.

 

Chrome:

  • Windows 11
  • Version 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Destination: Microsoft Print to PDF

Tile, Map and Scale bar, spread out over 3 pages

  • Appears to be screen size related
  • Chrome full screen on a 32" monitor results in the Tile, Map and Scale bar, over 3 pages
  • Manually shrinking the web browser to a smaller size the Tile, Map and Scale bar appear on the same page

Pop-up results show with HTML table

 

Chrome:

  • Windows 10
  • Version 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Destination: Microsoft Print to PDF

Tile, Map and Scale bar all print on same page

Pop-up results show with HTML table

 

FireFox:

  • Windows 11
  • Version 103.0.2 (64-bit)

  • Size of browser does not seem to affect printing Tile, Map and Scale bar, over multi. pages

Pop-up results show without HTML table

  • Turning "Print background" off/on no change in results
