Why is only one PDF file created when I use Strater's File | Print Multiple Logs command and select all my boreholes?

When you use File | Print Multiple Logs to print to a PDF file, the print job is completely controlled by the PDF printer driver.

If you do not have your PDF printer driver set to prompt for a file name, each log will be individually printed out to the same PDF file name. This means that each successive PDF will overwrite and replace the previous one (since it is saved to the same name). So when the job is done, you will end up with only one PDF file and it will be for the last borehole in your borehole list.


To use the File | Print Multiple Logs command and print to a PDF file, you really need to specify a file name for each log printed. We understand that this requires user-input and that somebody sits there and enters in a file name. However, if you don’t do this, you will keep running into the same problem above where the PDF printer driver just prints each borehole to the same PDF file over and over again. We don’t have a way to tell a PDF printer driver to automatically assign an incremental name to a PDF file for each successive print job. This would need to be included in the printer driver properties, and not something Strater can supply.


You might consider using File | Export | Export or File | Export | Multiple Logs instead to export the logs to a vector PDF file. Exporting to a vector PDF will generate a single PDF of all pages for all selected wells.
