Cheat sheets fixed

By stretch | Wednesday, August 19, 2009 at 2:23 a.m. UTC

I want to extend my thanks to a number of people who informed me via email and Twitter that there were some issues with the new versions of the cheat sheets. In my naïveté, I had assumed that PDFs produced using Visio's "Publish as PDF" feature could be opened by Adobe Reader.

Silly me.

I've reverted to the (presumably) tried-and-true method of printing the Visio drawings directly to PDF, which was the method that worked well to produce the original beta. Presently all cheat sheets of version 2.0 or higher have been converted and (re)uploaded in the Reader-compatible format. If you've experienced issues with viewing any of the new cheat sheets please grab them again, and let me know if any issues persist.

Currently, 16 of the 23 cheat sheets have been converted to the new format. I hope to have them all done by the month's end. Thanks for your patience.

I've had issues with the Visio -> PDF functionality as well. Works fine from every other office app however. :/

Thanks for the cheat sheets Stretch. Greatly appreciated!

Great work Stretch the cheat sheets are very good. I've been using them to help train the ANG troops in Fargo.
