Hi There I bought the crossword puzzle for AP Government and printed it out. The clues and the title came out in jibberish ( I thought it was Turkish at first which is what I get for trying to cut back on caffeine) The answer key was fine. Could it be that I don't have the font to print it? If it were a document I could change it . Any ideas on the true nature of the problem that could point me toward a solution? thanks you Rochelle Hall

Hello -- I'm sorry you're having a problem with the PDF file. I did a little research online (Googled "pdf wrong font" or something like that), and it seems that for some this can be a problem, and though I don't fully understand the issue, it can have something to do with the fonts in the document. I checked that PDF and the fonts in it are Times, Helvetica, and Castellar, so you can check to see if you have those fonts on your machine. The confusing thing, though, is that in the original puzzle software I used, the fonts are Times New Roman, Arial, and Castellar (no Helvetica). Not sure if the PDF software switched it and that's where the problem cropped up.

I always thought though that one of the main points of PDFs is that they allowed you not to have to worry about fonts. I'll have to do some more research on this before I try posting any more PDFs. This is the first time I've ever heard of this problem.

In the meantime, you can try opening it on another computer and see if it comes out properly. I'm really sorry you're having this problem.

This is a great product. The only suggestion I would make as a fellow seller is to provide an answer sheet. I know it is only a buck fifty, but you know as well as I do that someone will come along sometime and give a bad rating because of that! It has happened to me several times. That's the way it works here; people want everything for so little. I just want to save you an unnecessary and annoying headache! LOL

The guide I use is specifically for the 1946 version. It probably doesn't match up very well to newer ones.

Hi Alex,
I am purchasing your Study guide for Julius Caesar. I am a teacher who is putting together an English 10 program for our home learners. It is in binder format and includes a unit on Julius Caesar. I am wondering about copyright issues. Am I able to use your guide if I credit you for it? Also, does your study guide come with an answer key? Thanks

What I do is view the document in Word using the "zoom" feature. I set the zoom to about 30% size, then do a screen capture of my desktop.

Then I take that screen capture and paste it into a picture editor like Photoshop or even MS Paint.

Then I crop it so that only the document can be seen and finally save it as a gif or jpg.

Doesn't take long at all once you have the hang of it. Couple minutes at most.

I'm a teacher-author also. I liked the way your previews look--the way you can see the whole document, but can't really see it to copy it. How do you convert your files to the .gif format?
