Its a pain to print a chord chart from biab, then scan it, and then transfer it to mobile sheets...does anyone know of an easier way to accomplish this ? thanks in advance for any help

I don't have Mobilesheets but I believe that it handles PDF files as well as img files.

So you could try print from Band in a Box and select print to pdf from the print options window.

You may have to install a PDF print driver on first time selection & posibly reboot BIAB & maybe windows. Give it a shot you've nothing to loose Laughing

Peter, thanks for the response. Yes I tried that and every time I install the driver, it says its installed, I then reboot, try it again, and same error message...need to install the PDF print driver...perhaps I need to call the biab people and find out what I am doing wrong.
Thanks !!

Larry, you're not doing anything wrong. I can confirm your findings. I get the same issue.

I've checked my BB folder and files pdf995s.exe & ps2pdf995.exe already exist.

I installed them directly one after the other & BIAB now prints to PDF file correctly.

Possibly a problem with the auto installer from within BIAB.

Maybe PGmusic should be told of this issue.

Hope this helps
