    FM12 Save as pdf Issue



      FM12 Save as pdf Issue


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      windows 7, OSX Lion

      Description of the issue

      I have a lot of "printing" layouts that users need to save as pdf. A lot of fields or rectangles on those layouts have a 1pt black border on the left and right side but not on top and bottom.

      In layout mode or browse mode or preview mode, everything looks fine. But if I use the save as pdf option, adobe reader shows light grey lines instead of nothing.

      If I use the "preview" application on mac, everything is normal. But I have a lot of PC users, so I need to use Adobe reader too.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1) Create a field or another object with a black border and remove some sides in the inspector.
      2) Switch to preview mode and click on the pdf button.
      3) open with adobe reader

      ( I used adobe reader X v10.1.3 on mac and on PC )

      Expected result

      The PDF should only show the borders that I selected and not the others

      Actual result

      The PDF show black borders for the ones that I selected and light grey borders for the ones that shouldn't have any borders


      none found so far
