    FormZ 8.6 email

    Bless you, Bartjuan! I did the same procedure, got the same message, and here, too, the registration info. was already filled in! ;-) Life is good. (form•Z 8.6 is great!)

    Thanks, but that file was not there. (It was in my 8.5 Pro folder.) Done, but the “This trial copy has expired” remains. Thoughts? Thanks!!

    Greetings, folks! After the 8.6 download, I’m getting “This trial copy has expired.” (The 8.6 WIP worked fine.) Thoughts? Thanks!! ;-)

    form•Z Printing Empty PDFs

    Greetings, folks, and thank you for the response; it is much appreciated! > We are not sure why you would be having trouble. If you download, > unzip, and open this file, go to the Print command, and choose Open > PDF in Preview (from the PDF menu at the bottom), does that work for > you? Before I got your response, I did a Safe Boot, as that can often clean up some OS X anomalies. (I really miss the [relative] stability of 10.6.8!) I downloaded your file, and it opens in Preview just fine, which was a relief! I then opened the file I am currently attempting to print to PDF, and it now prints to PDF just fine when in “Wire Frame” mode, but does not work in “Interactive Shaded,” which is what I need--I still get a blank page. (As noted, the “File/Page Preview” menu item produces a great looking image! I just need a higher resolution than a screen shot.) “Surface Render” resolves the model in less than a minute, but then just generates a relentlessly spinning beachball until a force-quit becomes necessary; “Shaded Render” doesn’t give me the edge lines that I need. (The PDFs are for submission to an organization that has strict requirements for submitted images.) > If that works, but printing another file does not, does choosing the > File Menu: Plot Print Setup: Scale to Fit option make it work? The “Plot/Print Setup...” had already been set to “Scale to Fit.” Thoughts? Thanks!!

    form•Z Printing Empty PDFs

    < 3.5 GHz, 6-Core Mac Pro (MacPro6,1) with 16GB RAM, running OS X 10.10.5 and form•Z 6.1.2 > Greetings, folks! I was recently blessed with a Mac Pro, and can finally get back to long-missed work in form•Z (after a hiking accident that I have no memory of and was never expected to survive). I am simply trying to print out PDFs of models I developed many years ago. I can get the Page Options to render: a frame, crop marks, and the file name and date, so the PDF _is_ printing, but there is no image rendered; the frame is empty. The “File/Page Preview” looks great, and after clicking the “Print...” button, the screen flashes with the expected image (which then gets stretched horizontally before the window closes), but the final output has no model rendered. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!!, Richard Fairbanks (FYI, the 8.5 demo doesn’t open 6.1.2 files, and didn’t print any PDFs either. There are just too many challenges with moving from 6.1.2 to 8.5, and I can’t [yet] afford the upgrade. Sorry!)
