#86558 Narrative report cuts off first letter of first sentence on 2 pages

Posted by texas_nightowl on 29 October 2017 - 05:07 PM in Issues

Also, I can tell you that when I change the font down to 9, the problem went away.

 

So, I am fairly convinced there is some sort of weird spacing bug.

So, I just tried and I keep getting an error that I am not allowed to use that file extension? Weird. I will try again.

Harold has been making suggestions on the facebook group. I have made some pics of my settings and what I am seeing.  Those pics are on my imgur page. https://imgur.com/a/2OER7




#86550 Narrative report cuts off first letter of first sentence on 2 pages

Posted by texas_nightowl on 29 October 2017 - 01:00 PM in Issues

Hmm...now this is interesting.

 

The Report Viewer inside RM has the problem. Therefore if I print directly from the Report Viewer, the problem prints.  However....if I save to RTF, that version does NOT have the problem. Due to font sizes or something, the spacing is different on the RTF too. There is less text per page on the RTF file than on the RM file.

 

So, I still don't know why the report is screwed up directly in RM, but at least the RTF version is clean. I don't generally want to save these reports...they are generally for temporary usage, but at least this option works.

I suppose someone should move this to the RM7 Issues section because I have had the opportunity to try it under RM 7 and it still occurs.

The first occurrence, on page 2, seems to happen if I select "New paragraph after every fact".  The second occurence on page 9 happens when both "New paragraph after every fact" and "Start each generation on a new page" are selected.

Thanks. No change. I mean at least once I change my settings back to preferred.  And I spotted a 2nd issue also. When I change from endnotes to footnotes, one of the footnotes prints twice on the same page despite only being used once.

 

My narrative report options are as follows:

 

Ancestors and children

4 generations

Options - the only ones checked are: Start each new generation on a new page, Print uplines, print notes, include private facts, include private notes

New paragraph after every fact

Sources: Footnotes at bottom; Reuse endnote numbers, Use "ibid"

 

 

I changed fonts which altered which sentence is affected. The first letter of the first word on the 2nd page became "tates" instead of "States" and I still have a double footnote citation but it is a different one...#8 instead of #9.

 

The second instance of the letter cutting off became page 10 instead of page 9 but still happens. Also, the duplicate footnote issue appears there as well.




#86530 Narrative report cuts off first letter of first sentence on 2 pages

Posted by texas_nightowl on 27 October 2017 - 11:31 AM in Issues

I generated a 4 generation ancestor narrative report yesterday and in 2 places, the first letter of the person's name is omitted. ie. Charles is harles and John is ohn.

 

The first occurrence was on page 2 and was the burial sentence for my 1st generation person. It is the first sentence on the page.

 

The second occurrence was on page 8 and was a custom fact sentence for a 3rd generation person. It is also the first sentence on the page.

 

Any ideas on what to look for?

 

I did post this on the facebook group also in case anyone thinks they've already seen this.
