These are the pictures that I wanted to use in the Jan.'15 SJVLS newsletter....it was not to be. I use Publisher to build the newsletter and I put together a photo page on page 2. When all was finished, proofed as best I can proof my own work, I went to my Corel PDF program, to convert the Publisher file to a PDF file for emailing. Woe is me the PDF file photo page was messed up .Several pictures somehow only printed a portion of them, such as the top of Bernie's head, and the red packages in the picture with the elephant.
I thought the worst of course, there is something wrong with my program, or this stupid computer with its Windows 7 operating system trying to run my old XP programs. I did the conversion over, and over, and over again. I reinstalled Corel. I even looked for a computer loaded with XP online and bought, and then cancelled my order.
That was a day or two ago. I called Office Max to see if they could do a PDF conversion, and they said yes. So I thought that was what I would do. Further thinking brought me to this little nugget. Suppose it can't be converted by them either. Maybe there is something wrong with the Publisher file.
Today I decided I had better try and get this to work at home. I created a new version of the newsletter in Publisher. I moved the photo page to the third page. I unlinked the first and second page. DID NOT WORK. Then, I exchanged pictures. One of them worked. Now I had a clue, something wrong with the pictures. I went back to the camera and uploaded some more shots, and out of all this fussing I finally got a page that worked. I got my PDF document.
Now all I needed to do was print my newly minted Publisher
file that I use to make mailing copies. Well, now the printer is slightly out of ink, and the photos are slightly banded. Close enough! I suppose I could make copies from the original Publisher document that I had already printed. That would give me two different versions of the Jan. 15 newsletter. I like the second Publisher newsletter better so far as layout goes, and I tightened up the silver stain article some more, even had room for a cartoon.
