PDF from PowerBI loses format when copy pasting in email

Occasional Contributor



Has anyone encountered this bug before and know how to solve it?


1/ Go to PowerBi Online

2/ Export to PDF your report

3/ From your device open the report PDF w/ Preview or Adobe Acrobat

4/ Select chart or row and copy

5/ Open Mac Mail client, Outlook online, Outlook client app

6/ Create new mail that is in HTML

7/ Paste chart

8/ All data/chart formatting is gone. Gets lines of unformatted text.


Anyone know how to keep the table formatting from breaking?


Thank you,
