Post phonics dice print out blank
Hey mark,

I just tried to print out some phonics dice, but they printed out blank. The actual dice frame/template printed out fine, however all the squares were blank.

I used it two weeks ago and they printed out fine.

I'm on the same computer and I am using the same printer, so I am not sure what's gone wrong.

Does everything look OK on the screen? If it's fine on the screen, maybe someone has played with the margins and that's causing a problem. Check the margins and see if the top and/or bottom margins have been increased.

You are trying to make two dice at the same time, right?

Yes, everything looks fine on the screen and yes, I ma trying to print 2 dice on one sheet.

I looked at the margins and as far as I can tell they haven't been changed.

Only one other teacher uses my printer. He's not here at the moment, but I'll ask him when he gets in if he changed anything, but I don't think so.

Anyway, Ill keep trying things on my end and I'll let you know.

I tried it on internet explorer and the same thing happened. Normally I use firefox.

Anyway, I was able to print out one die fine. So I can get what I need. for now.

I'll keep looking into the 2 dice problem though.

I think it has to do with the margins being to small. Can you try reducing the top margin and decreasing the bottom margin to zero. That should do it.

The two dice maker generated sheets are really long and I think everyone has to play with the margins to make sure they print for A4. I can't remember but I think it won't fit on Letter or 8x11 no matter what you do.

Ok top and bottom at 0 worked.

I'm pretty sure before they were the same as a few weeks ago (when it worked fine.)

But that doesn't matter, cause it's working now.
Cheers!

Spring has finally made it's way to southern South Korea. How are you fairing in your mountains?

Good that it at least works and is printing.

It's still pretty cold here, but the days are getting noticeably longer so spring feels a little closer :D
