invalid export area

Asked by henrique alves on 2017-02-04

Hello,
I've been using Inkscape for a while now with no issues. However, all of the sudden when I export an error alert that says "The chosen are to be exported is invalid". I've tried everything! even deleted and downloaded the new version and nothing.
I have an online shop which I use this program and i'm getting behind. Please help me. what do I do?

Have you tried copying the content into a new file and then trying to export from there? Perhaps the file is corrupted.

Hi Henrique,

please check which tab is selected in the export dialog. Make sure you select the 'Page' or 'Selection' tab.

If this hint doesn't help, please make a screenshot of the export dialog, upload it to an image hoster of your choice (e.g. imgh.us), and then link to it from your next comment.

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Thanks Hachmann, that solved my question.
