Invalid parameter error when export to pdf

Postby dimck1222 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 1:57 am

"Error saving <my document name.pdf>The operation was started with an invalid parameter"
I JUST downloaded the 4.1.6 version to overwrite my 4.1.3 version, which (in DRAW,) would no longer export photos with a transparency %. NOW I can't export to pdf at ALL. I get the above error message. I NEED this fixed. These are my business print materials.
Open Office 4.1.6 O/S = Windows 10

PDF export from Draw works on my Windows 10 system, so it does not seem to be a problem inherent to 4.1.6. Try resetting your user profile. To do that:
Shutdown OpenOffice
Open any folder and enter %appdata%\openoffice\4 in the address bar near the top of the window.
Rename the user folder to user_old
Restart OpenOffice. You should get the registration screen.

Does PDF export work now?
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017
