Re: Quartam PDF Library Unicode Support

Thank you for your kind words, Scott - it is good to hear that the library is useful, even in its current state. The simple truth -without going into detail- is that my life changed considerably in the past four years, and that my 'after hours' development time is severely constrained. Don't think I...

Literature on the creation of PDF documents

There are few books that thoroughly explain the creation of PDF documents 'from scratch' - nevertheless, I found some books that offer valuable insight: Developing with PDF by John Whittington Developing with PDF by Leonard Rosenthol I will update this list as other books turn up - feel free to send...

Re: removing dashed lines

Hi Scott, That's an excellent question, indeed. And it looks like there's no clean way to revert to a solid line without changing the library source. So here's the quick work-around: qrtPDF_SetLineOptions tDocRef, "round", "miter", "1,0", 0 For a better solution, here's how you can patch the library...

Re: Blank page on print preview on Sierra

Hi Josep, The issue of the ghost window is a fundamental incompatibility between that old version 4.6.4 of the LiveCode engine and the new version 10.12 of macOS - there is nothing I can do to fix that, I'm afraid. Your only option to work around that problem is to use a more recent version of the L...

Re: Save as issue

Hi Josep,

I think I have cracked the problem with CSV files as well - at least it works on my MacBook Pro running macOS Sierra in both LiveCode 4.6.4 and 7.1.4
The new beta of Quartam Reports 1.1.7 has been sent to your private email address.

Thanks in advance for your feedback,

Jan Schenkel.

Re: Save as issue

Hi Josep, My apologies for the extremely late reply - a deluge of deadlines at the day-job kept me so busy that I neglected the forum. And your direct email was stuck dangling in cyberspace thanks to a nifty new anti-spam feature that I didn't ask for and wasn't aware of because it ate their own ann...

Re: printing without preview

I have just emailed you a copy of Quartam Reports Library 1.1.7b6 which combines all fixes that I’ve assembled so far - including the direct printing problem. Once I've applied another pending fix to the Quartam Reports Layout Builder application, I will wrap everything up in a complete public relea...

Re: Blank page on print preview on Sierra

Hi Josep, I finally got around to installing macOS Sierra 10.12, and I can reproduce the problem inside the Quartam Reports Layout Builder application. This was built with the LiveCode version of the same era, and it too exhibits the ghost window issue when repeatedly previewing+printing the Samples...

Re: Blank page on print preview on Sierra

Hi Josep, I sent you an email with Quartam Reports 1.1.7b6 which combines all fixes that I’ve assembled so far - including the direct printing problem. Give it a whirl and let me know if it resolves the issue you see on macOS Sierra. Bear in mind that the screen artefact you are seeing may be caused...

Re: printing without preview

I understand your frustration - it is indeed not your fault that my life hasn't gone quite the way I wanted/expected it to. All I can do is bow my head in shame and try to rectify the situation. The fact is that I have been working on a complete revision that will take advantage of LiveCode 8/9 and ...
