When I attempt to export document to PDF using the 5.1.8 release, or even a single page, I get the following console errors and no PDF output.

VoodooPad Console
Return value not converted in NSMakeRect
Return value not converted in defaultTextFrame
Argument { not converted
Line 61, TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'textFrame.origin')
Argument { not converted
Line 61, TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'textFrame.origin')

    Hi,

    Thanks for letting us know about this, and I'm sorry for any trouble caused by this problem. Could you let me know what device you're running VoodooPad on and what version of macOS you have so that we can take a closer look at what could be causing this?

    Hi James,

    Thanks for the detailed response! I've been able to reproduce the console error messages on a local machine, but the PDFs seem to save without issue. Could you provide a bit more detail on how you are exporting to PDF, and could you double-check that the PDFs are not saved on your system?

    All the best,

    Hi Colin,

    Yes, the application saves to a PDF file.

    However, in days past, I was able to print header information based on unique page names for each of the pages in a collection, using the export to PDF function. It was a great way to evaluate and track research information. Now, PDF output is a vanilla without header and footer information. The attached PDF is collection of 15 pages in a collection minus any header or footer information. I do hope that VoodooPad continues to provide the capability of including header and footer information in the PDF. Could the errors in the console window be related to the Voodoopad no longer printing the header and footer information?

    Regards,

    James

    Hi Colin,

    Attached is an example of PDF output of a collection as it looked in previous iterations of VoodooPad.

    Hi,

    I see; I'm not sure what would be causing this difference in functionality. Could you let me know specifically how you were exporting to PDF earlier, and which version of VoodooPad you last remember supporting this functionality? Also, could you confirm for me that headers like "Addison-Wesly Series" on page 6 of your PDF are based on the page headers in your document? With that information, I should be able to take a closer look at this issue.

    All the best,
