This one won't work:


It appears though, that in Images are generally not exported to PDF.

I can confirm this problem for pdf export.

This works for html output and pdf export:


This works for html output, but not for pdf export:


I suppose the problem is that rbpdf cannot access to these files. Wysiwyg editors like redmine_wysiwyg_editor insert absolute URLs (it would be nice, if they would insert relative urls).

But I think, that html and pdf output should be the same in general.

Tested with:

  • Redmine 4.2.3
  • Ruby 2.7.5
  • No plugins
