Something has changed in the tune-a-tron Convert-a-matic

 

Now, when I enter an ABC, submit, then hit "PDF sheet music," it gives me a complete Web page, not a PDF.

 

I can print it, but can't save it as a PDF. There's no "save" function. I can use the browser save command, but it will only save it as a "complete Web page," not a PDF. Previously I could save the PDFs created in the convert-a-matic.

 

Am I doing something wrong, or has that function changed?

It may be that something in your browser config has changed (ie the Tune-a-tron PDF funciton stills works for me in the way I expect) - maybe an adobe pdf plugin has been added or updated.

Some thoughts... try a right click on the PDFSheetmusic link then choose "Save LInk As"   - for me this saves the PDF.

 

If I left-click on that pdf link it opens (in Chrome) with a pdf plugin. This seems devoid of print  or save buttons until I hover the mouse down at the bottom right  of the browser window, where apon they magically pop into view.

 

Hopefully one of these ideas will work for you

 

Chris

I think it's a browser problem or something in the convert-a-matic that has now been resolved, works fine for me just as it should, nothing weird at all, but this is ten and a half hours after the original post.

Many thanks Chris and Spin - it was a browser issue. Something must have changed in the Firefox configuration; the create a PDF function works fine in Chrome and Opera.  Thanks for the suggestion!
