PDF scaling is incorrect

This has been a consistent problem of 3.0 since I can remember. My specific version is 'ce77e12'.

When exporting a score into a PDF, the scaling is incorrect. This downscales many aspects such as the clefs, key/time signatures, brackets, notes, stems, etc. This also makes the stems detached from the note heads in the PDF. Obviously, all of this makes the score look wrong.

I have a PDF attached, along with the score if need be.

I'm using Windows 10. I don't think that's the problem though.

If you compare the PDF vs. the score, you'll notice everything except the text is scaled down. I have been told that it's because I have downloaded fonts onto my computer and used them in the scores (as you can see, the font that I used for the title and instrument names are not the defaults). That just wouldn't make sense though, as I have used these fonts in my scores for MuseScore 2, yet there were no problems with the PDF when exporting.

I am also facing the same issue while exporting a score to pdf. The A4 sheet view shows the stems are detached/misplaced from the note bubbles which is not the case while writing the score.

I don't think this is related, and for sure wer can't tell from just a picture, so would need the score, and please in a separate issue

Same problem here - it's really an issue for me. I can't properly export my scores as a PDF. When I do export it as an PNG (which I can only open properly in MS Paint) it seems to be fine. But the same score on Windows 10 will give me strange behaviour when I export it as a PDF.

One more observation: When I change the general style to Gonville, it seems to work sometimes - but not consistently.
