Global Mapper v25.0

Elements missing in PDF export

ksilwp Global Mapper User
I have used the " export PDF fille..." option from the file menu to export my maps for many years, however since loading V21.1 the elements I commonly include, i.e. Scale bar, north arrow and legend are missing from the map output, although they are loaded an visible on screen. I have tried including these elements in the map layout editor, and they are included if I generate the PDF file from there, but this is a far more complex method opposed to simply exporting the PDF file from the file menu.
What can I do to ensure the elements I use are included in the PDF export directly from the file menu?
