Error while printing from Magic Magazine

Postby Jon Elion » February 14th, 2021, 10:33 am

Is there a known problem with printing/downloading from digital back issues of Magic? I am trying to download a page from the October 1996 issue, but it gives an error. This happens in both FireFox and Chrome (latest versions).

Hello,
I am encountering the same error. Yesterday, there was just broken links to the page image and no "clip" box. Today there is a blank image and the clip box is visible and can be adjusted over the blank image. When I clicked the "download/print" button I got the following error text, which may be helpful? (BTW I am using a chrome based browser and have no problems printing Genii pages)

TAERROR : file "magicmagazine.cfg" does not exist!

I can print the Genii issues with no problem.

However, have not had success in printing any pages from MAGIC magazine for a long time. It always errors out or give me blank screens.

Tested with latest versions of MS Edge and Firefox.

If the page of magic is a single graphical element (i.e. text grouped with photos) you can print it to a pdf or printer. If the elements are broken out (i.e. images as single object or grouped as all images vs the text as another image) you can only "print" each element at a time. The latter is really common (many different objects on a page). The full page printing (which works great for the genii issues and is what's truly useful) seems super borked for the Magic issues. Just gives me blank pages.

I would suggest doing screen grabs.

That's been my backup and it' hasn't been a very good one. (i.e. dependent on monitor, low res, and not great with small text).
