Dated data table - Letter disappears when saving to pdf-document

Postby tvonbrasch » Fri Sep 16, 2016 12:37 am

Hi

When entering the rowlabel Utvinning av råolje og naturgass it comes out in capital letters in the dated data table as

As I noted in my previous post, the rowlabels are written in upper case letters. However, this is not the case for the Norwegian vowel "å". It is the lower case version "å" that is included and not the upper case version "Å".

When I save the table as a pdf document, the letter "å" disappears

Is this something you can fix?

The PDF engine used by EViews unfortunately does not have support for the Norwegian vowel "å". and therefore cannot be fixed.

Hi Jason

Okey, but maybe you can change it so that the Norwegian vowel is correctly shown as either "å" or "Å" in the Eviews table object, depending on whether upper case or lower case is used? (same for æ,Æ and ø,Ø.) Maybe you have the same problem with spesial letters in other languages as well?

This will be fixed in the next patch.

Perfect, thanks!

I have another question related to how to sidestep the issue that Norwegian vowels is not printed in the pdf output. As an alternative, I can save a table in picture format, but unfortunately, the quality of the picture format is low. For example, this is a pdf version:
pdf_version.PNG
pdf_version.PNG (64.78 KiB) Viewed 735 times


In contrast, this is the bmp version
bmp_version.PNG
bmp_version.PNG (128.11 KiB) Viewed 735 times


and this is the jpg version
jpg_version.PNG
jpg_version.PNG (325.2 KiB) Viewed 735 times


Both pictures hold lower quality compared with the pdf version (but these show the Norwegian vowels correctly). Is there a way to increase the quality of the pictures when saving them from Eviews?

Do you think you will upgrade the pfd engine in the future, say when you release Eviews 10?

Thanks again for looking into this

I would try using a PDF printer driver such as http://www.cutepdf.com/(there is a free version) or Adobe Acrobat and then 'print' your tables instead of 'saving' them. These are generally bit more flexible than what save offers.
