I see the same error at my Windows machine and not at the Mac.

I wish I could help!

I'm ok.
I was not able to take out more and define better what was triggering the problem.
I presume is the content

Thank you, we're looking into this. In the meanwhile, you may be able to work around the problem by changing the tool that Scrivener uses for PDF conversion. If you have Microsoft Office installed, you should be able to tap into that to create the PDF. To do so, open File > Options, select the Sharing tab, click on Conversion, and then click Export Converters.... Select "PDF" from the dropdown on the left and "Microsoft Office (2007-2016)" on the right.

If that isn't available to you, you could instead compile to RTF or DOCX, then open the file in a word processor from which you can save a PDF.

I tried compiling the Scrivener 3 Tutorial and had a similar experience - vast sections of text (mostly from Part 2 "Going Further" onwards) are missing, leaving large empty spaces on the finished PDF page. Numbered lists seem particularly badly hit, but images are missing too. The above advice of switching the export compiler to Office "fixed" the problem.
