"Drawing error occurred"  is the prompt when trying to open an exported pdf after the ArcGIS Pro 3.3 update.
All previous versions of ArcGIS Pro exports worked. Hopefully someone has a solution for this? Thanks!

Hi Ryan! thanks for your comment. I played around with Export Pane Settings yesterday and got it to work.  The Layout to be exported contained multiple external elements.
Under the Compression section > Checked the boxes: "Output as Image" and the "Compress vector graphics". I accepted the other default settings. The exported pdf opened fine after that.

I must admit I never had to change that before this update. I am just happy that it is working again.

What parameters are you using in Pro to export to PDF? I just tried exporting to PDF using the default and it opened fine for me with no errors.
