Subject Re: Printing PDF only shows a few letters in 1.8.7+, works in 1.8.6
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 19:13:15 GMT
Using the commands that you provided me in the command line worked just fine and the text appeared
without incident.

I tried changing my code to not using a scratch file, like you suggested, but I got the same
results as when I did have a scratch file.

(If it matters, I'm not actually printing these, but rather just going to the final print
dialog and choosing "Open in Preview" on OS X and using CutePDF on Windows to create a PDF
of exactly what is being sent to the printer).

7th letters of the text in the PDF. Nothing else appears on any other line.
