Subject PDF output and Dispatcher
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2008 02:17:34 GMT
Hi All,

This was going to be an email about how PDF was not working with Dispatcher,
more accurately that it did not work using Pelt Theme or any theme that does
not over-ride FO from /common/ .

Usually, when I copy over Pelt Theme for over-riding to my project, I also
copy over /common/ just in case I need to change any of that too. This was
my downfall here, because changes made to /common/fo recently did not get
updated in my local project, so broke PDF output.

I then spent 1/2 hr fault-finding and correcting errors in
layout-master-set.ft only to find that this had already been done in
whiteboard. 

So, a doh! moment for me, and a heads-up to anyone else that has local
copies of themes/common/* , remember to update them, better still, try not
to change anything in common, copy it to /pelt/ and change it there instead.

Gav...
