PRINTING |  QUICK TROUBLESHOOTER GUIDE

  • THE PRINT AT HOME PATTERN (prints on A4 or US letter paper) IS COMBINED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS. You will find a list of page numbers in the instructions so you can just print the pages you choose to save ink and paper.
  • We now include an A0 file with each PDF pattern for printing at a copy shop on a wide format printer.
    If you are only seeing 2 pages to print at home, you’ve most likely opened this A0 COPYSHOP file by mistake and you need to open and print from the file that is included with the Maker Instructions.
  • If you’re using a Mac and your pattern is opening in ‘Preview’, reopen in the latest version of Adobe Reader. FREE FROM HERE.
  • Give your pattern time to download completely. Save it somewhere safe that you can find on your computer. Be sure to print from the SAVED version. Printing a pattern that is open from your internet browser will cause the pattern to not print out correctly.

CHECK THE PRINTER SETTINGS |

  • ‘Actual Size/Scale 100% should be TICKED
  • Make sure:  ‘Choose paper source by PDF page size’ is UN-TICKED.
  • Still not printing OK? Click ‘ADVANCED PRINTER SETTINGS’ then click “PRINT AS IMAGE”
  • It is important to use the latest version of Adobe Reader and also make sure your printer is set to print on Auto portrait/landscape.
  • If you are using Apple mobiles that might be the problem. They won’t download and open a pdf file without a pdf app installed.
