Generated PDF doesn't show up in Download Zip (R)
YULitle (0)

When I "Download as ZIP" all of the files are included in the ZIP except the "test.pdf" that I generated in the code. Once the file is created I can save the one file using the preview pane. That's not the issue. My end game is generating a large number of PDFs and the prospect of saving them all "by hand" is not ideal. Ideal would be including the PDFs in the "Download as ZIP" feature.

Ideas?

"Download as zip" ignores everything uploaded or programmatically generated.

Annoying, since I've wanted these files, and there is no way to differentiate them.

Thank you! That's what I was afraid of. @xxpertHacker

@YULitle You could programmatically merge them into a zip, and then download the zip.

That's the best workaround that comes to mind.

Well, ask for it in https://replit.com/feedback
I don't think that it includes any files created by the code in the Download is Zip, that feature just hasn't been added yet to my knowledge.
