The plugin stopped working on my Chrome Version 98.0.4758.109 (Official Build) (x86_64). The plugin version is 3.3.2 in production and 3.7.0 in dev. It was working just fine a few days ago. Did anyone else experience this issue? I tried reuploading the image, as above, but it still doesn’t work
I figured out what was happening – the workflow I was using was activating sections in bulk and then adding text/images to them afterwards. What fixed the issue for me was pairing Activate with Create actions, for each of the sections of the PDF I was generating. This solved the “nothing happens at Conjure” issue
I have just created a debug logging mechanism, right now exclusively for the client-side version, which is the one that uses “PDF Model X”.
If the workflow reaches the final action without a breaking failure, it will then log what was the end result of the PDF in an internal format.
It logs it to the browser console and also outputs it for you to store the log in your database and also see it on screen.
Helpful for intermittent issues, this way you can automatically log all attempts to create the PDFs and when a failed one happens, get the debug log content about it from your database.
A recommendation is to use an online text difference checker to compare the log of a failed attempt with the log of a successful attempt, this way you will have insights about missing data, different data and others.
So far I’ve enjoyed your plugin a lot and I’ve been able to build a robust PDF just following all the thread discussions across multiple topics. But at the moment, I’ve been facing a particular issue I’ve not been able to overcome. Let me describe what I’ve trying to do.
I have a PDF model (client side) and I’ve setup multiple texts. So far so good.
Then I’m trying to create a bundle of elements (multi-column sections, texts, etc.) multiple times depending on the size of a list. Here is where I come across a problem.
Trying to solve this client side using (home made) iterators, I get a bubble error stating I cannot make circular calls of workflows either directly or indirectly, so I tried the back-end workflow approach.
In this approach I’ve setup the PDF Initialization and created several texts successfully, but then I come across the same problem, trying to call another API workflow on a list is a nightmare. I do not find a way to pass my progress as an argument to the API workflow so I do not lose what I have so far.
So, summarizing what I’m trying to do, is I need to be able either to pass the PDFModel with everything I’ve setup con client side to the server to be able to iterate through the list of elements and create my bundle of elements to finish my document, or to be able to do the same but all of the time being on server-side.
Do you think this is a feature that already exists but I’ve not been able to find? Or is it something so complex that is not in the scope of the plugin at the moment?
P.D. Great work with the plugin/support so far!
------ EDIT ------
Found the solution using another one of your plugins: " SimpleLooper". If anyone needs help implementing the solution I suggest do not hesitate to comment here or contact me.
and a structure of Flight which has a linked invoice (only one) but the invoice has linked items (normally 2 but can be more). So it’s sort of a table within a table. I can conjure a PDF for the first 9 columns - that’s great. But I can’t work out if / how I can structure it to add the next three columns so the result looks like the screenshot.
btw I am doing this because the table gets big and I want to print it in pages … PDF Conjurer looks like it will do this but maybe I should be using another plugin!! - I have Print Pro but I couldn’t get that to do nice pages …
Thank you, but one question - is possible to show the pdf (instead of downloading it) when a user clicks to view? So far the final Conjure steps forces a download, but I want to open the file in an iframe.
hey @vini_brito I’m quite confusing, I use the pdf conjurer in backend to generate contrats (so 8 pages, 46 actions). Sometimes, I have a “workflow error sorry blabla…” (with no more info on the error). Then I try to re-generate and it is ok. So this not about some text or image element in it (that was my hypothesis at start). It is not when other workflow are running (I tried with nothing else running). Do you have an idea ? thanks
