Checkboxes in scripts that are generated in PDF format are showing up as pound signs.

Hi,

I'm trying to generate some printable Test Case documents for use by some testers, and I notice that I cannot get a checkbox to appear in PDF format. It always appears as a pound sign. I'm using the Printable Test Case report that comes with Spira. Is there a trick to getting the checkbox to appear? Or is it just an artifact of the PDF Translator, and I'm out of luck.

Currently we're generating the reports in Word7, then saving the file as a PDF as a workaround.

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Andy

PDF cannot support checkboxes in the same way as HTML or MS-Word, so you would need to change the report template to change:

<input type="checkbox"></input>Passed

with something like
[  ] Passed
