  • PDF Printing


    I have chosen the following printing options... print to file, append, pdf so that when I run a program the results just get added onto the end of an existing file. The problem I discovered is that when I do this the first print of a program is fine. When I run and print again the file gets appended but the numbers don't match those shown in the edit window report

    Luckily I have not used this option on any critical reports. Mostly just recieving inspection stuff where we look at the edit window to decide whether to accept a part or not. The pdf is just printed as a record the inspection was done.

    Has anyone else noticed this? How can I ever trust the pdf print option again?

    try the rtf filetype, it just might be a bug

      rtf doesn't work for me for some reason. Here is what I get if I open an rtf file in notepad. Here is what I get if I open the rtf file in word.

        That looks like a driver issue of some kind

          I should clarify, those rtf files were opened on the computer at my desk. If I open them on the computer at the cmm they look fine. If I could just convince them to put excel on the cmm computer I wouldn't need to view them at my desk!

            Tell them the cost saving’s of paper alone will cover the cost of excel.
            I run a job 10pc sample, 15 pages each and put it on the boss’s desk
            Guess what he had the secretary punch it into….. Excel
            I got it about 2 days later after I went thru the reports and found a few typos

              I do not think NotePad understands RTF. Use WordPad instead.

                Those are PDF files. I mean save your data to RTF. Notepad or Wordpad can open RTF. MSWORD will too.

                  Those are PDF files of screen captures of the document opened in word and notepad. SABarber had it right. Notepad doesn't get the RTF. Wordpad does however open it correctly. Word does open the file correctly but it makes the dimension boxes miniscule so they only look like a line at 100% enlargement. At 500% you can almost read them.

                    So using RTf doesn't work either? I haven't used Append but I use Index and it goes to a limit of 9999 or something.

                      I have not tried append with the RTF file. I will have to try it and get back to you.
