The export as PDF was implemented as a core feature using a library
called libharu. unfortunately the library has not had a new release
since version 2.2 (several years ago) and NetSurf requires fixes that
have never been released.
This issue combined with the original author abandoning the work and
the feature becoming broken has resulted in PDF export being
configured off for some time now.
Making it work once again would require a great deal of work which
no one has yet committed to doing.
I was wondering about the status of this, as it seemed like a miracle at
I know we can still use the Drawfile export and print to a PDF file, but
the direct option seemed so much more elegant!
Unless someone fixes it this feature is unlikely to ever return.
