I would like to report a problem when adding text annotations to a map.
When saving in the print composer from "Export as Image" in JPEG format the text annotations are showed really small.

Thank you,

Seeing this issue in 3.4.4 still - also tested in 3.2 and 3.0 and seeing the same issue. Text Annotation is the correct size in view window and in print layout but is tiny and unreadable when exported to pdf/png. Can someone have a look, please, as the initial report doesn't look like it's been actioned. Title on report needs to be amended to reflect that it is the exported item that is the issue, not the print layout scaling.
