Hi there!
It pains me to bring up these export_png-related issues... but here I go again. This time it is an error that shows up when using export_png() and show() together:

In 0.13.0, the following works just fine:

from bokeh.models import ColumnDataSource
from bokeh.plotting import figure
from bokeh.layouts import layout
from import export_png, show, output_file

source = ColumnDataSource({'x': [2, 3, 4], 'y': [0.5, 1.5, 2.5]})
fig = figure(plot_width=1000, plot_height=300)
fig.hbar(y='y', right='x', height=0.4, source=source)

export_png(fig, filename="export fig.png")

doc_layout = layout([fig])

output_file('export_test.html', title='export test')

...but in 1.0.0, it throws the following error for the line show(doc_layout):
RuntimeError: Models must be owned by only a single document, HelpTool(id='1026', ...) is already in a doc

Some observations:

  • I wonder if it has to do with the changes that allowed to fix export_png not exporting figures correctly #8020.
  • Not using either export_png or show works.
  • Using show(fig) instead of show(doc_layout) works, as well (but that is not really a workaround).
  • Using export_png after show works, too. This could be a workaround in most use cases, but is quite inconvenient in mine.

Many thanks for the 1.0 release, anyway. I read about it in the change log, and it really feels like the export function is now faster for multiple exports!

I will submit a PR once I have time to figure out some tests.
