Support to targetSdkVersion 30 android 11

See original GitHub issue

I was updating my project to React native 0.64.2 and my sdk is pointing to version 30, in preparation for the request from the playstore for November, but I am having problems with this library with devices with android 11 Error: RNHTMLtoPDF error: Could not create folder structure. is the error that is giving me.

Before to support sdk 29 i used android: requestLegacyExternalStorage = "true" but this will no longer be a solution for android 11, what would be the solution now for android 11 target sdk30?

Removing directory parameter works for me. I was using directory as “documents”.

Hey I was facing the same issue in target SDK 30 and gladly found a solution. First look at my code

async function createPDF(params) {
  const html = getHTMLPage(params);
  const options = {
    fileName: getFileName(params.entryType),
    directory: 'Documents',
    // height: 792,
    // width: 612,
  const file = await RNHTMLtoPDF.convert(options);, 'application/pdf');

I was saving the file to Documents directory and it was just saving fine (log the file after save) but when i was viewing the file with RNFetchBlob that’s where I was getting the error. So my problem was with viewing the file with RNFetchBlob. If your problem is same try to add these lines in AndroidManifest.xml

            <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
            <data android:mimeType="*/*" />

Hope it solves your problem.
