Hi.  Well, your "problem" is probably really from something that I never addressed very early on in the software development... and it's really my problem.

I'm guessing you got a .pdf the first time and used the browser back to make some changes.  (That's what I also do sometimes since there's no real way to return to the PatternWizard once you're inside a .pdf.)

Anyway, early on I noticed that using the browser-back function leaves a couple options in section 7, in a different configuration.  In other words, when you do a .pdf, then click on the browser-back button, section 7 still shows .pdf pattern output, but then shows the screen formatting options, not the .pdf formatting options.  Meaning after a browser-back, there's an Easy-Read option and no longer options for symbols and colors.

The Easy-Read option should only be available for screen output, not with .pdf.

Two things...

1. I'll go and correct the problem I should have done months ago.  Forgot about it since I got used to doing the "work-around".

2. Until I fix it, the work-around for now is if you use the browser-back to return to the PatternWizard, simply click once more on the ".pdf output" option in section 7 and it will re-configure that section to give only .pdf options.

I'm glad you asked.  This will knock another fix off my list.  And we'll make another post when this problem is fixed.

Hi, again...

I just made a change which solves this issue.  Now when you create a .pdf pattern and use the browser-back button, it remembers your previous .pdf settings (colors, symbols, and grid).

If you have any further problems, let me know!

Thanks again, and have fun!
