   They also indicate that the text box is too small to display all the
entered text. If you try File -> Export -> PDF and get a box with error
messages you'll see that the indicate errors are text boxes with little
symbols in the lower right corner. Increase the size of the box, the hidden
text magically appears, and the errors are fixed.

   You don't see this if you produce the PDF by clicking on the icon.
