ProAPOD’s PDF Printing Plan Revised

ProAPOD intended to include a function that would enable its customers to click a single button to create PDF reports. The idea was to use procedures included in Excel 2013 for PDF so the customer would not have to rely upon third-party PDF software.

But after a serious attempt to include the proper code, it was discovered that there are too many unresolved issues in Excel 2013 that makes it almost impossible to maintain compatibility across a wide range of computers. Where on one computer the function performed perfectly, on other computers there were error alerts that prevented some of ProAPOD’s features to work correctly.

After much research, it was learned that problems like this are commonly encountered by others attempting to use Excel’s PDF reference library. And without a clear resolution provided, ProAPOD elected to postpone its plan until there is absolute assurance that the error messages can be prevented.

So for the meantime, ProAPOD customers will continue to use third-party PDF software to print their reports as a PDF. It is not difficult, but ProAPOD had just hoped to make it easier.


Agent 6 Update

ProAPOD released an updated version of it’s Agent 6 real estate investment software on 10-22-2014.

What Was Changed
  • The Read Me page was reworded to make the instructions easier for new customers to understand.
  • Many of the explanations provided in the form headers were reworded for better clarity.
  • The UserInfo form was reformatted to modify how a date can be added to the reports. Rather than enabling customers to include just the current date into the reports, the form now allows customers to include any date they wish.
  • The Print menu was reformatted. Rather than having the customer check boxes for the various report selections, the menu now consists of a list of selections that the customer can highlight.
  • The Help page on the Print menu was reworded to make it easier for customers to understand how to print the reports as a PDF.
Bottom Line

The changes made to Agent 6 is mostly cosmetic. But the result is effective.

If you purchased Agent 6 within the last year, this update is absolutely free. Just login to your Customer Account and download the Update.
