Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:21206


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.

Coukd you attach the a sample project and data? Does the issue persist on 2.10? have you tried without any 3rd party plugin active? Have you tried by (temporarily) purging the .qgis2 folder?

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.
