I've got two tables in my FM book, one with 3 columns, the other with 2 columns, both with alternating shading. In FM, the tables both have text in the cells of the right-most column. When I save the book as a pdf, the text in those columns disappears. Oddly, when I select where the text should be in the pdf, Acrobat reader does recognize something there.
I've tried resizing the columns, with no luck. The cell formatting is the same as in other tables in the book, and other tables also have banded shading but don't lose the text when saving as pdf.
Which version of FM (including point release)?
Check that you are all patched up. IIRC, there was a version where were table shading messed up text display in PDFs, but it has been fixed.
I'm using FM 188.8.131.525
Still troubleshooting today. Any suggestions are welcome.
I will try turning the shading off to see if that makes a difference. The odd thing is, I have other tables with banded shading that display the text just fine in the PDF. The table boundaries fall within the body of the page (do not go into the page margins).
Thanks in advance!
Are you using the RGB or CMYK option when creating the PDF? Whichever, you're using, try the other to see if this makes a difference. [These use different postscript headers/instructions that sometimes result in odd treatments]
Thanks for the suggestion. I tried switching the option, and that made no difference.
My document is an unstructured doc, if that matters.
Also, for troubleshooting purposes, I inserted a new table w/out any shading, and I'm still running into the same problem.
Thank you, Arnis. I will report it.
I appreciate your help!
