Freelance Printing Documentation


have you Solved the issue tha Documentation Tool Just gives 8 pages on each PDF file. In the case of a long logic FBD, it splits in several PDF's files.

Please any Clue?

What I want to have is to get just a single PDF instead of several PDF's

this limitation probably comes from the (very) old times, where memory and disk space was an issue.

I have issued an enhancement request to increase the number of pages per job.

Best regards

Hi Juergen:

Please, then just let me know, if by now, there is o there isn't the possibility to achieve the FBD printing on this way?? or Should I give up because this is a Capacity Limitation on the availables Freelance current versions?

The key has been there for a long time, and the documentation is a bit outdated as it states 3 pages per job.
