[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Export to PDF Failing

Hello Alex,

I’m not getting any errors from the background job, but the PDF it creates is malformed and missing most of the components. I’ve attached a screenshot of the background job results and the PDF it generated.

And the EAD I get from export has to have some small tweaks made, but it validates and works in our XSL stylesheet.

Is the PDF exporter throwing an error within ASpace, or is it completing the export but returning a malformed PDF?  Could you provide an example of how it's failing?

When you export EAD, does it validate against the EAD schema / as well-formed XML?

We recently migrated all of our data from Toolkit to ASpace. Everything seems to have migrated fine, and we get clean EAD on export, but I cannot get the print to PDF function to give me anything functional.

I looked through the archives and didn’t find an answer to this issue.
