Hi everyone, I am a new user of Seamly2D. I have finished my very first pattern, the format is larger than a normal A0 (it is a 80x60 inches). I am trying to export and/or save the pattern in PDF or JPEG in order to print it later on. I cannot export in JPEG format, when I try everything seems to be fine but I cannot find the saved JPEG files afterwords. I also tried to export the pattern as tiled A0 PDF, but I have 2 error messages. The first one is: “Warning- Qpainter::begin(): Returned false”; the second one is: “Warning- failed to open file, is it writable?”; and then nothing else is happening. Has anyone encounter these issues? Could anyone help me fix these issues?
Hi Emy… I responded to your issue on Githhub.
Can you give me some more info - like the OS you are using and the build date (you can find that in the Help->About menu). Also it would help if you could attach your pattern and measurement files.
After some testing and researching the error you reported it appears that you may have specified a filename for which the app is unable to write the output.
I’m able to export in any of the modes, with all of the formats with a very large size with no issue.
Hi Douglas, Thank you so much for your help. So I just need to change the name of the file for it to be exported! That’s fantastic! I am guessing the issue was the spacing between words, wasn’t it? Anyway, thanks a lot for your help!
That could be… the OS may not have an issue we with spaces in a filename, but Qt - specifically in this case QPainter() - apparently does. Thats why I usually use underscores in filenames to avoid such issues.
I should take a look at the code and to see if I need to have the dialog validate filenames before passing it on to QPainter for export.
