Printing to PDF on Windows 10 causes text to be converted to bitmap images

I have tried on multiple machines with Windows 10 but get the same result, all text is converted to bitmaps images.

 

Is this a MYOB bug or a Windows 10 bug?

 

What is the solution to print multiple invoices quickly and efficiently with the output being completely vector based text? 

 

The save to disk option is useless.

Re: Printing to PDF on Windows 10 causes text to be converted to bitmap images

Hi @stickerart

 

I would recommend taking a look at my post on your previous post on this topic -Printing to PDF on Windows 10 causes text to be converted to bitmap images

 

In my testing of AccountRight 2017 using a freeware PDF reader, I was able to correct highlight values when using AccountRight's Send to Disk function. Directly printing to that PDF caused those values to be unselectable for myself

Kind regards,
Steven

Hi @stickerart

 

The Send to Disk function will pull the default customise form option set in Print/Email Invoices>>Advance filters>>Selected form for sale for the chosen sales layout. 

Kind regards,
Steven

Hi @stickerart


As the Send to Disk function will look at the individual transaction it will only save the one PDF document for each transaction.  If you need to combine those PDFs into one file you would be looking at a PDFmerger/combiner program to complete that task.

Kind regards,
Steven

That is too much work for us to individually send to disk each invoice, a big step backwards in productitivity.

When will the standard Print Invoices be fix to output vector text in Windows 10?

Hi @stickerart

 

Changes to the way AccountRight 2017 does interact with PDF printers is currently not something that we are actively looking into for the foreseeable future.

 

AccountRight 2017's send to disk functionality does work as intended as does the ability to print the document i.e. when a document is selected to be printed it will be printed (be it to an actual printer or a PDFprinter).

Kind regards,
Steven

What is a productive solution to send mutliple files to PDF rather than one by one?

HI @stickerart

 

As mentioned previously on this thread, AccountRight will only allow the user to produce one PDF file for each transaction using the Send to Disk function. If multiple PDFs are required to be combined it would need to be done through a third party program such as a PDF merger/combiner.

 

With that being said others in the MYOB Community may have some additional information on potential ways in which to produce multiple PDF documents into the one PDF format.

Kind regards,
Steven
