I am using Mathematica on macOS 10.14.3. I found something goes crazy when I exported a plot with legends. In the notebook, everything seems fine

enter image description here

Then I used the export command to export it as a pdf. It becomes something like

Any idea how to fix this?

P.S. Here is the code

PTest2 = LogLogPlot[{Tanh[x], x}, {x, 10^-3, 10^3}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"x", "y"}, PlotLegends -> LineLegend[{"tanh(x)", "x"}]];
Export["plot_test_2.pdf", PTest2];

  • $\begingroup$ I am also unable to reproduce the issue with version 11.3 on macOS 10.14.3 (which is not in beta status btw.). $\endgroup$ Feb 7, 2019 at 7:33
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks guys! Although I am still not sure about the cause, I have reset my Mathematica to its default and the problem is solved. $\endgroup$ Feb 7, 2019 at 19:11
