Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
The option to create a PDF that I can then print atop these forms is broken. It was broken in 2022, and I don’t know if it was ever fixed then. But printing Merit Badge cards is again - broken. Clearly BSA’s marketing hand doesn’t know what it’s electronic tools had is doing, but better communication is needed; both internally, as well as to your users. If you know what years of form 33414 the tool works for, please post it. These forms are not free, and you’re wasting my unit’s money by making me believe that I can print to the these forms. A scout is Thrifty goes beyond one’s own resources: we should not be wasting others resources. But that’s the experience I’m having. You’re wasting my time and money by falsely advertising a feature that does not work. Either remove it, or fix it. But don’t leave it as-is.
For giggles, I tried the other SKU number. That one actually prints the data in the correct order for form 33414, but only the bottom row of cards aligns correctly. The top row does not. So even the instructions from within Scoutbook are buggy.
I don’t have time to post a pic. I’m at 2 hours of trying to print for my CoH this evening, a task I had scheduled 10 minutes for, and I’m at least 30 minutes from printing and have so much else to do.
OK, the form actually says:
[ ||| bar code ||| ]
33414 2022 Printing
Why they still have “33414” on the form is stupid. It isn’t that, it is 654936.
That figured out, it still does NOT print correctly. It took me about 15 interations of printing, adjust, comparing to a light, and repeat to get the text to print correctly. Then print the pages one at a time, copy-and-paste my data into place. What a ridiculous ordeal. Some user error, but it doesn’t help to have misleading BSA printed material. The people that design this stuff are paid staffers. The paid folks really need to support the volunteers better.
This is supposed to be (tongue in cheek) a one-hour a week volunteer position… XD
@JonathonKruger I will send you a direct message > look at top right Avatar to find it > it will be a green dot with a number 1 > it will be a private message channel with select members of the Scoutbook User Advisory Council (SUAC)
