Description I just upgraded to 184.108.40.206 since I last ran this report. Both scripted and manual attempts to save as a PDF fail on a report that has been working flawlessly for over two years in previous versions. I have a text-based report with the following sections; Header, Leading Sub-Summary, Body, Trailing Sub-Summary, Trailing Grand Total, and Footer. There is colored text throughout. If I try to save it as a PDF (scripted or manually), I get the following error dialogue box show up: "["report name"] could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk." The script goes on to append a graphic section of the report to the text based report and this part saves without any issues to the same folder on the same drive. I then tried to save the text-based report manually and I get the same error. I then opened the solution in FMP version 14 and ran the script. Ran perfectly, and saved the text-base portion and then appended the graphics-based portion without any issues. So, I know it is not a drive issue, but seems to be something that has been changed in version 220.127.116.11, since the previous version work just fine.
How to replicate
- Tried saving a different layout that has the same section format, colorization, and more fields and it fails also.
- Tried to remove objects, sections, conditional formating from the original layout. Nothing seems to help.
- Moved to my 18.104.22.168 test server and I get the same error message.
Workaround Rolled back to FMPA 22.214.171.124 and the script and manual saving as a PDF work fine.
