We are currently planning to migrate to a different platform for the forum. We will announce this fact both here and on Twitter, once we have settled on a solution.

Export to pdf, Word etc. doesn't work in 1.8.2 and 1.8.3

pandoc: $: openBinaryFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

Debian installation file under LinuxMint

Reinstalling Version 1.8.1 solves this problem

what's wrong in the last two updates?


  • We've removed compatibility with Pandoc 2.10 and earlier. You need to upgrade Pandoc to 2.11 or later for Zettlr to continue working.

    If you don't want to, we'll be shipping Pandoc with one of the next updates, so that this hassle will be gone for good.

  • I've updated pandoc and done all the suggested changes, including specifying pandoc paths, don't work. I still get this error for export in all formats including HTML:

    pandoc: $: openBinaryFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

  • It seems that sometimes adding a path (and a file) to the export/bibliographic reférences field allows to export.

  • Many thanks for your quick answer.

    I've updated Pandoc to Version 2.11, but it doesn't still works. So i will waiting for update with included Pandoc

    With kind regards
