Newly installed QGIS 2.8.2 on laptop running Mac OS 10.10.2. Created 5-layer map. Composed layout with legend, label in Composer. When attempting to export PDF, saw brief flash where "export" box should have been; no export occurred. Repeated attempts to quit, re-start over past two days. One successful export of JPEG after many failures. Also tried, failed to print to paper.
With older versions of QGIS, I have been able to print to paper, to PDF and to JPEG.

Actually it won't export an image neither. I found the same issue on 2.10.
It seems its related to the HTML rendering of labels. I've recorded a screencast that can be seen at https://youtu.be/C2QZX9iSYe8
If I uncheck the "Render as HTML" option, everything works ok. The exporting dialog does work actually from time to time, even if I use HTML rendering.
I'll check this again on 2.10 and upload a video later.
