I have created several routes on the earlier version but I was using GE-6
Plenty of others using Windows and GE 7 combination. What browser? You may have a buggered GE install, or there is something about that GPX file. If you email me the file I can validate the file.

Any errors appearing in the Javascript console of your browser?

print roll

Hallo rally navigator gurus,

what's about the print roll thing ?

Most of us do not have a print roll printer so we have to save the file and bring it to a print & copy center. Is the file which i can save ( http://www.rallynavigator.com/routes/90/print_roll ) a usefull file that they can use to print out 1 roll of roadbook ?

How i can mange it, when i want more roadbook rolls ?

Normaly i saved the roadbooks in a pdf file and put the single pages together in adobe illustrator, saved again as a pdf file and can get out 5 rolls of roadbook ( paper is 90 cm, wide, roll is endless )

Now i tried to save the print roll file as a pdf file, but look , what is comimg out ???

Yes, we do the roll printing as you describe:

1) Press "Print Roll"
2) Configure a custom paper size to be very long
3) Print the file to a PDF
4) Take the PDF to a local print shop.

Steps 2 & 3 can vary between Mac and Windows. I use a Mac and it was very easy and PDF printing is built into the OS. I don't know how this works in Windows. I think you need to install a "PDF Printer Driver".

By the way, your route (id 90) renders in roll form perfectly and saves as a PDF just fine on my Mac.

Thanks also, but mine is still not working fine !

Single papers are fine ,but the roll is chaos.

Macbook pro, firefox 21,0 , tried to change 50 formats, nothing is working :-(

The best would be to make a save as pdf file button ( 1 pdf for the whole document - paper roll , not single sheets !!! )
- better to save 1 , or two, or three or four or 5 roll in a row like the pic posted before from the roll printer

The problem appears to be Firefox. It doesn't appear to let you select a custom paper size as I showed above. This does work in Safari and Chrome. So, that's your answer--use Safari or Chrome, at least for printing.

As for PDF download, we have discussed that internally. Given that it is already possible to print the rolls without having a PDF download, it's hard to justify the extra cost of development. It's not top priority at the moment.

As for printing "n-across", the printer's software takes care of that. We printed 2 days routes for 20 riders using the Rally Navigator software *as-is*.

I'll also add this... since most people don't have the hardware to roll print anyway, most won't even use this feature. We'll probably offer roll printing as a service--mailed to your door.

So I thought it was mentioned that this could be printed as a pdf. My question is this, Is it possible to simply save it as a pdf file? say on a smart phone? I can read pdf files on my phone, so I was thinking maybe I could sort of use it as an electronic roadbook.

Not really the product that we've been building. But you can certainly do what you suggest using what we already have and other off-the-shelf free software or stuff that's built into your operating system.

Thanks Dave. I would like to say it's a good site, and have had some fun trying to use it.

Sorry if it was asked and replied before, anyway I had to revert to GE6.2 because GE7 wouldn't work properly on my old desktop. And now no way to make the Rally Navigator work... any clue?

If you select print, you should have the choice to print to pdf
It will probably default to your listed printer, but there is a change button
to send it to a file
