    'white box' appear in pdf



      'white box' appear in pdf

      Description of the issue

      Hi, I'm saving pdfs of my records and when i open the saved pdf i'm finding lots of little white boxes (like those you'd find when opening a chinese file on your computer and it doesn't recognise the characters) all over the place. (do they mean empty set?) Any help would be great as i need to send out the documents and its not great as these random characters are popping up. Cheers  Running FMP 10Mac Os 10.5.6

          Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.


          How are you saving PDFs of your records?  Are you selecting "Records being browsed" or "Current record"?


          Pull down the View menu and select Preview Mode.  This is what is being sent to the print driver.  If the "white boxes" are displayed in Preview Mode, then those characters will appear in the PDF file.


          Are you using the PDF button in the Print dialog box?  Or, are you using "Send Records as PDF" from the File menu?


          Any additional information you can provide may be helpful in determining possible causes.
