Report - save as pdf problem

Ghost section label or field.

  1. Save report output to pdf, and one or more section field/labels appears arbitrarily in the printed report - but it was not showing in the preview.
    (See attached snip from pdf file)
  2. No problem if report is printed to pdf using print function and selecting pdf printer.

Any ideas?

Re: Report - save as pdf problem

This would appear to be a problem with the PDF converter in ACT! or Windows. The print prefiew uses in part the video driver and selecting of a PDF printer (I use PDFill)has its own PDF converter and works through the video driver. That's why you get different results with an export to PDF and printing to a PDF printer. Hope this helps point you in a direction to look for the problem.
