When focus mode is activated, only the focused section and the one before and after are exported in the file->export as pdf action. The export also contains the "previous" (section) button and the text coloring (where prev and next section are grey)
File->Export as PDF in Focus Mode
@Philipp-Rottner thanks for reporting this! We've improved this one now for the upcoming 1.0.25 such that:
- The menu item clearly states "Export Focused Content as PDF"
- The Previous and Next buttons won't show in the PDF.
- Even if you've set to show the previous and following section in the focus mode from Editing preferences, they will not be shown in the PDF export.
Thanks again for reporting this! Note that if you want to export the entire document out even when focus mode (or conversely if you want to export out only the current selection), you can do that with options from the full File > Export… option. This "quick export" to PDF will for technical reasons remain an export that reflects the contents of the editor.
