Hi Julio, Try the following. In my case, I pass this method a Folder Name and a Document name. This is because I deal with multi-language documents kept in separate folders. The user sees a name of the document without the “.pdf”. You could just remove those lines and populate $tFileName with

Thanks. I will have to some of the conversion in v16 and then some in v17. My interface needs some of the newer features e.g. standard actions available in v17. I was hoping to develop and test side by side in the same database. I’ll open two versions. Thanks. > > Maybe 4D Write version 16

I believe I have a clue. The last three crashes occurred overnight when new updates were available to be installed. i.e. I get the notification on the desktop from macOS that an update is ready. The server ran fine for 7 days prior to that. How do I report this to 4D? Thanks Mitch

Thanks for the suggestions: 1) Upgrading to 16.3 HF1. I will do this but none of the reported bug fixes seems to address the problem. 2) This is a 32 bit application 2) Memory setting. Since this is 32 bit on OSX my understanding is that the memory allocation is fixed by the OS at around 2 GB.

Thanks Jim. So based on your post, I tried it with Select Document and as you note it works. Then I changed the path name to use the Folder Separator constant even though “:” (semi-colon) seemed to be working fine and voila, the code works. Don’t know why but it works. Mitch

You can use Miyako’s pdf plugin to do basic pdf manipulation. For instance we receive our faxes as pdf’s from an e-fax service. In our application, we create thumbnails of the various pages. The staff can then chose to delete pages (i.e. the cover page) or group pages together as a single pdf.
