Export a print layout to whatever format (jpg, pdf...)
At the end of the process, you get a message that the file has been successfully exported and the path to the file.
Clicking the link does nothing while it used to, at least in 3.0, open the folder in which the file is stored.
Tested on W10, 304033c916.

I can't reproduce. Can you post instructions on how to replicate?

#3 Updated by Harrissou Santanna over 4 years ago

No real instructions needed; all is above. It's just about clicking the link in the notification after an export.
I did reproduce it a numerous time on the same (old) project, regardless the print layout, then tested successfully on another project and going back to the first project, it works after some trials.
I can't explain!

Let's keep the report open and if ever i reproduce the issue in upcoming days/week, i'll attach the culprit file and any needed settings information.

Things to test would be stuff like exporting to paths with spaces/special characters, exporting to local/network paths, etc. There's likely a pattern to find...

Good suggestion.
I Made some quick tests and it happens that spacing is not a problem but special characters (such as é, è...) are the culprits: clicking the path when such a character is available does not open the folder. Being on a network or not does not make a difference.
