    Unanswered: Report issue when printing

    I have a report format with alternating lines of text shaded. The print preview works and shows the alternating shaded but when I print a PDF, the shading is lost. Sometimes this happens when I send straight to the printer, but usually, I can make a PDF which will show the shading, and then send that to the printer. However, now it seems like whenever I make a PDF, I'm losing the shading! It's driving me up the wall. As you can see from the two attachments, they're the exact same report, but one printed with the shading and the other without!

    its probably a bug in the PDF writer.
    For now I'd try shading on/off rather than change the colour of the shading as your alternating highlight


    failing that revert to a grid format
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Thanks Healdem, that's actually a good idea and I'll make the necessary changes if see what happens. I'll also contact our IT department and see if they can reinstall it Acrobat X for me.
