Export to PDF issues.
« on: September 24, 2019, 06:01:30 AM »
I am having problems exporting to PDF. I have tried resizing the columns. I have changed the percentage on the print page. I have changed it to landscape. No matter what I do I still get the PDF cutoff right after the Type column. The whole thing is just not displaying. Any suggestions to why I am having this issue. Print preview looks fine.

BeerSmith Version: 3.0.8
OS: Windows 10
Display Resolution: 3840 X 2160
Print Driver: Microsoft Print to PDF

I just tested with the sample 49th parallel IPA.

I clicked the recipe then at the top of the preview pane, I clicked Print (using the default Recipe Report type).

This opens the print dialog in Internet Explorer and shows my recipe exactly the same as the BeerSmith preview pane.

I selected the printer icon and then selected Microsoft Print to PDF.  I saved the file and opened using Acrobat reader.  Looks exactly like the BeerSmith recipe and the preview in the IR print dialog.

Just tried your steps and I have the same results. I have attached my results.

When I tested the fit of the recipe report in Win10 and on the display window, there is the ability to scale the print to fit the window.  I have circled it in red in the attached screen shot.

Thanks for the replies. I have tried scaling all the way down to 30% and I get the PDF every time. My work around has been to highlight the text and pictures, copy it (CTRL C) then paste it into a word document.
