Fix: 1. Ensure printer drivers are up to date. 2. Upgrade browser. 3. Print pages from the corresponding .PDF file on disc.

Description: This is an issue with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and Opera 7.11 and Konqueror 3.1.1. The splitter bar is adjustable in later versions of Internet Explorer. This issue does not prevent the user from viewing the documents on the disc.

Fix: Upgrade your browser if possible.


Image corruption in DocViewer on some graphics adapters.

Description: Occurs occasionally in Windows machines with Mozilla browsers and Matrox G450/550 graphics adapters. Document pages displayed in the DocViewer appear to be cut into sections and the sections displayed in the wrong order.

Fix: 1. Change color depth to 16 or 32 bit. 2. Ensure your graphics adapter's drivers are up to date.

Fix: On Mozilla/Netscape browsers - Select Back, then select Forward. For Opera browsers - Upgrade your browser to Opera 7.11 or later.
