    PrintOMatic, Dir 11, Mac projector not working

    morgan_5_16_66 Level 1
      I just upgraded to PrintOMatic Lite Beta Xtra (180b5) after upgrading Director. I’m using Director 11 on a PC and making a Mac projector. I see the xtra being added when I publish the Mac project, but I’m getting a script error when I run the movie and it tries to register the xtra in my moviescript. I get a message saying the Xtra cannot be found.

      I have the PMLite_180b5_Mac folder in the Crossplatform Resources - Mac\Xtras folder – I even tried moving the cpio file to be loose in that xtra folder – but still no luck. I have it in my xtrasinfo.txt file just as the documentation says.

      I have it registered in the StartMovie handler:
      register xtra "PrintOMatic_Lite", "[my ver 1.8 number]"

      Anyone else had this problem? I need to print landscape and have it Shockwave safe... desperate!

          Hi Morgan,

          I have been able to generate a mac projector with no problem. If you
          want I can send you a example and maybe it can help you. What you tried
          to do was possible in earlier versions but not in this one. Now, you
          have to 1.) generate the projector in your Director 11 for PC for Mac.
          This is going to generate a folder with the name of your movie. You
          will then need to take this folder into mac. On mac, this folder will
          transform into an executable file for mac (This is assuming your mac is
          running OS X). Below the executable file, you will need to generate a
          folder with the name of “Xtras”. Inside this folder you will need to
          paste the printomatic lite.xtra file (printomatic for mac).

          On the other hand, I have a different problem myself. I own
          Printomatic lite 1.7.5, I downloaded the 1.8 beta upgrade and tried
          to generate the license key without success. My problem is that at the
          bottom of my printed page I have a legend that says " Printed by an
          unregistered copy of the printomatic lite xtra.." I have contacted
          Printomatic but they do not answer to phone calls nor emails. Could you
          please share your upgrade license with me please?

          Thank you in advance,
          Veronique
