    The Samsung Notes app on my Tab S6 Lite has been saving PDFs with blank pages that are not supposed to be blank. Please help me out.

    Are you actually exporting your notes as PDF files, or are you simply saving them as a conventional note? www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00087285/

    Yes I'm exporting it as a PDF, it happens when I use the save as file option to save it as PDF and when I use the share button and share it as a pdf

    Are you also seeing how the PDF files look on another device, like on your computer?

    Okay, so I found out something weird. When I export a note as a pdf, Samsung Notes doesn't save a copy of it in the app. The pdf is only saved at the location I select. One more thing, when I import the pdf, I previously exported manually in the Samsung Notes app, the pages aren't blank and the pdf has a black background while I had selected a white background in the note I exported it from. I use my tablet in dark mode and while selecting the background colour, I disabled apply dark mode to background

    I don't have a Samsung device, so I can't say for sure, but it would seem to me that the Export as PDF option is separate from the Save option, which would explain why it doesn't save it as an actual Note file at the time you export it.

    Okay guys, I figured it out. The background I choose for my notes is the one that applies the system default theme to the background. I use my tablet in dark mode but I like to write on a white screen so I disabled the setting "apply dark mode to background". What I now noticed was that my notes with different colours like cyan and yellow weren't displaying the error I mentioned. So what I think is that dark mode is messing around with my notes. So I could either use different colours or use the background corresponding to my system theme.

    By theme I meant dark mode and light mode. So it's just the default theme
