Bug Fixes

  • Connection Manager
    • An issue that prevented Patrol or Den Connection Manager with more than 1 page from properly setting connections has been fixed.
  • Print Blue Cards
    • An issue that prevented the Print Blue Card PDF from working with Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat has been fixed.
    • An issue that prevented a Scout not currently approved in a unit from printing Blue Cards has been fixed.
