Do your print-outs
contain black patches
where a project should be? Here are fixes that
might apply to you. If this has happened to you and you
discovered a fix, please write me at
so I may share the correction with others. Thank
you for your help.
From Phyllis Stonehocker, I use a MacBook Pro, so I
have had this problem. When you download the file, it will
save as a .pdf. However, most Mac's open with Preview
instead of Adobe, which causes the images to show up black.
If you open Adobe and then open the files, the images should
show up correctly.
From Bonnie Childress: I
don't have a direct quote from Bonnie, but she is using an
iMac and has found that if she opens the file in PhotoShop
and then re-saves it as a pdf once again, she finds the
black patches have disappeared.
users:From Carolyn Loushbaugh, (for those just having
trouble opening a project) My email only works in 32 bit. It
won't automatically open your links in Windows 7. In order
to open Paper Minis links, I have to move from 32 bit to 64
bit. 64 bit will open the links.
While in 32 bit:
- Right click on the secret gateway link
- Select "Copy
- Then open the 64 bit internet explorer
Paste the copied link it into the browser/search line and
hit enter. After accessing your secret gateway site, then
all the links inside the secret gateway will now work.
However, if they can only access their 32 bit explorer,
the links will not open. But don't despair! Here is what I
had to do in order to download the free pdfs from your site
while in 32 bit mode:
- Go to the link for the free pdf
- Right click on the link
- Select "Copy Shortcut"
Paste the shortcut into the browser/search line and hit
enter. The picture will come up, but without the usual pdf
options. It doesn't have a save option available.
your internet home page server to select "file"
"save as". Select where you want to save it (it will be
your home page by this time).
"enter" to save it.
