I have had a number of problems working with the attached document (mouse stuff square2.afdesign) which contains 4 placed pdfs. Firstly, when I export the document the resulting pdf expands one of the subfigures so that part of it (top right subfigure) is covered up (mouse stuff square2.pdf attached). Secondly, when I return to the main figure after working on a subfigure the resulting canvas is black and to recover the figure I have to open a new artboard (this recovers the figure) and then undo the creation of the new artboard. then all appears okay. I suspect these problems are related.

Hi @Laganama,

I'm not entirely sure I follow you on this. The afdesign file looks just like the PDF. Am I missing something? Can you attach a screen recording of your workflow?

It seems to have something to do with how the graphs are being displayed. If you select the offending graph and change its status in the context toolbar from Document to Artboard1 then the text that is currently shown as being cut-off/cropped will reappear and the pdf will export correctly. I'd be more inclined to edit the graphs by selecting each in turn and clicking Edit Document and tidy them up a little, removing unnecessary extraneous elements and then bring them back into a single document...
