Hey @zeltser59,

Can you provide some environment information about your setup please? App version, OS etc.

Any screen shots/gifs of what you’re seeing in the application would be great too. It will all help debug the problem.

Yes, I’m seeing this, too. I went to Settings, Data, Export data, Download this morning and got the same message, “Could not export the data. Please check the DevTools.” I subsequently checked the Postman DevTools Console and found nothing useful there.

I’m running macOS Mojave 10.14.5, Chrome browser 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit), and Postman for Mac Version 7.2.2 OS X 18.6.0 / x64. I have a large Postman Collections / Request set, but haven’t had problems downloading it before.

Here are the screenshots. At screen number 2 see the error in the lower right corner

Hi, I got the same issue today, it worked perfectly well until some update that I have got this morning, the update failed, I downloaded and reinstalled manually, now everything is back to normal.

Same here. (Full year later). I was hoping to use Newman to do automated tests based off of the stuff I already have saved in Postman. But because I can’t export, I get to manually rewrite all of my requests.
But in addition to the “Could not export the data. Please check the DevTools.” error box (which I couldn’t see at first), mine also freezes for several seconds when I first make the attempt, and can freeze up to several minutes before I force quit the application.

In the DevTools console…
Unexpected return value from ipcRenderer.sendSync: null
