Re: PDF print issues

Suzanne Wakim
 

We sent the link to our print shop.  One of their responses is below.  

It errored out at the same page that I’ve mention to Julie also.  At the bottom of the page, it reads 5/23/2021 7.2.2.  Attached are the files how it errors out from one to another.  Also the number of pages that it stop in our Fiery print que.  I’m not so sure what it is but it stop at the same page as the one Julie submitted to me.  Maybe the file is a view only and non-printable?  I don’t know, you might want to ask IT here on campus?  Maybe the publisher and the format they save it as? 

Things I've already tested:
- The print shop tried saving directly from LibreTexts and had the same issue.  They tried all the pdf options and they all had the same issue. [I think, this is what they told us and I believe them, but I don't have definitive proof].   So, I don't think it's the PDF we created.
- I tried sending a different OneDrive link, and that still had the same issue.  So, I don't think it's an issue with OneDrive settings.

Things I still need to try:
- I exported the PDF to Word and will see if they can print the Word file on Monday. 
- The main issue I have is I don't have a printer at home to test this on. But, I trust our print shop folks. I think there is something about this specific pdf that isn't letting them print. This is my last guess left - that there is something about how the pdfs are generated that is causing the error.

Thank you for your help.

I need a bit more information to help. What error is generated and in what technology? What stops you from printing?

Tech Smith SnagIt (https://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.html) is pretty good and it can do videos. Costs $50 tho


It sometimes helps to expand the image on your screen before doing the capture even with Microsoft's snipper (recently heard they were improving it)

This is an issue that has just appeared. It seems that the missing photos (and there are more than one) are on pages that have been transcluded. Forking the pages fixes the problem on that page

  1. To change the book title in Libretext, I did the steps that you mentioned and still get the error.  Here are the screen shots:   click on the pencil, and I see this screen

 

 

I typed in the revised title, and press the update title button and get this error “An error occurred while trying change the page title.” as shown here

Done.

 

The title on the pdf book is set by a tag in the page settings

 

lulu@Title of Book@Author@Institution@Title of book

 

You should have been able to change the title of the book by clicking on the pencil to the right of the title

 

You can edit the title page in the front matter just like any other page

Delmar just helped creating a campus in workforce for my book, so you don’t have to do it anymore.  https://workforce.libretexts.org/Courses/Evergreen_Valley_College/Information_Systems_for_Business 

 

Please make sure that you point to the correct book in the business campus, if we need to keep a separate campus for the business section.

 

I will try to integrate with Canvas and may need your help again.

Thank you!  However, this is the wrong book.  Our book is in “workforce’.  Here is the screenshot of our book:

 

 

 

 

I sent an email to Delmar to ask for his help fixing some the figure # since they were not generated correctly.  He had helped making the final changes before the book was accepted.  Somehow, a few figures numbering are out of wack again.  There are a few other issues too that need to be corrected before I can send it to Hulu or point the bookstore the instructions.

 

is there any instructions how to the campus shelf?  One I download the cartridge for CANVAS, do students have to get a student account or anything else?

 

Do I create a campus shelf for each school where I adopt this book?  For example, I don’t want to send Menlo College’s students to EVC campus shelf?

 

Thanks for your patience with my questions,

 

Ly

PDF print issues

Suzanne Wakim
 

We are trying to print our book through our printshop and they keep getting an error. They tried all the pdf download options on the LibreTexts page.  I think there may be a setting in how the PDF is being generated that isn't allowing printing.

This is a link to the PDF we would like to print.  It was generated by downloading individual chapters and combining them.  But, the same issue arises with all the other PDF download strategies (where we don't make any changes to the download at all): Butte College OER Human Biology 3rd Edition fall 2021.pdf

Security requires users to either use local authentication or SSO. You cannot switch between the two without tweaking your account. I switched you to SSO for all accounts and you can log in via the two-step process now.

Re: Error Message When Trying to Fork a Specific Page

Henry Agnew
 

Hello Lance,
       For the page that you were trying to transclude (https://chem.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Introductory_Chemistry/Map:_Introductory_Chemistry_(Tro)/08:_Quantities_in_Chemical_Reactions/8.04:_Limiting_Reactant_and_Theoretical_Yield), it itself had a broken transclude to a PhET. It was this nested transclude that was causing the issue. In order to fix this, I just repaired the transclude to the PhET simulation and the Forker should now work normally for your sandbox page.

Hello Delmar,

I have been in the process of working on making updates to a book in my Sandbox and every time I try to fork the page that was originally derived from:


I get the following message. I have tried importing the same page from other books in campus bookshelves that use the same page and I get the same message.

Once again, any page that seem to be originally derived from

Now thats odd....

Patrick McClanahan
 

I have NOT noticed this before. 
In my course - for each chapter there like an intro page :


It has a heading of: 

1: Introduction to Information Systems?



This page DOES NOT show up in the common cartridge export. Is it due to the way the page is titled? All the pages that start with a haading of two numerical  places - 1.1 for instance - show up in canvas just fine. Is there something that is keeping these intro pages on each chapter from exporting?

A teaser on the new citation/reference system

Delmar Larsen
 

Dear all:

FYI. A new citation/reference system will be operational on the LibreTexts libraries soon. We expect a beta-version to be operational next week. This will enable authors and developers to add citations from a local or global reference repositories to address scholarly activities.

The accessible blibliographies will be dynamically generated and will be available in six different styles (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago, ACS etc) that authors can pick (and probably readers can override). This will allow for footnotes/comments too.

We have been wanting this system for a few years now and the dev team is excited about being able to roll this out on our platform.

A key aspect is the enable this to be powerful and flexible so that pages can still be remixed without issue (or even content copies and pasted).

Regards,

Delmar
