hi Hillel,

i made a phantomjs cloud key and added it to the .env, but still not working. Its making 5kb PDF’s

You may have better luck running phatomjs locally.

I also suggest working through the items in the troubleshooting list.

Hillel, shouldn’t the cloud option be a working solution in the first place?

Yes, however we’ve found PhantomJS to be unreliable. In the next version we’re switching to headless Chrome.
