The PDF version seems to be blank. Am I the only one who can't see anything when they open the pdf?

Preview shows it blank for me as well under OSX.

It opens fine with Acrobat Reader 7 under XP.

Checked with Acrobat 5.0 / Mac OS 10.4.8 , that'll do the trick also. I got to say these are strange *.pdf. They are supposed to be portable aren't they? This thing should be named *.apdf (meaning adobepdf - ok i'm guilty, thats a bad joke - someone comes up with something better please?) Very Happy

*supposed* to be portable. Adobe makes new versions of Acrobat all the time, what incentive do they have to not default to using the most advanced features (and possibly the not well documented ones)?

Well problem's most certainly anything but a new advanced feature as acrobat 5.0 i used to acess the file was bundled with the classic enviroment and that has been around for a while.

I saved the PDF out of Inkscape. It could be weird, but it opened up for me also.

I'll give it another crank..

I just whipped up an SVG version - converted the GIF, enlarged the bitmap, and ran it through Inkscape's bitmap trace..

It's not perfect, and it's not an original, but it's plottable Cool


You did a great job on the poster. Thanks for that!

I am still messing with the Slab poster..

Here's a second PDF attempt: http://itomatos.flotsm.com/Resources/NeXTStationPoster_b.pdf

It opens in xpdf and gpdf, and apparently on WinXp/Acroread 7..

What pdf reader is generating a blank page?

I made this as a desktop, but there's a 18"x24" poster version as well:

Preview in OSX has problems with both of these.
The nextstation one is blank, and the cube one shows part of the cube and the word cube, and then some upside down letters CUB below it.

The EPS version of either poster should be viewable with Preview - on NeXT or OS X.

I would try another PDF viewer, the EPS version, or creating another PDF with a converter or with Illustrator or the like. An (untested) .ai file is there, also.

No joy on the eps version in preview on OSX. It is also not rendered properly for some reason.

Hello,

I was wondering if it's possible to purchase the Cube launch poster somewhere? I've looked everywhere on the Net without success. I've found a picture of an office with one in the Spymac.com gallery and it looks just amazing.

I'd even be ready to PayPal a reasonable donation to any kind soul ready to send me a good scanned copy. Smile

Cheers,

I have been looking this poster for about two years and no success, I would like to buy it too, but I think that the best option is to get a 1:1 high ressolution scan. but the issue is to ask is some one is so kind to donate or sell such scan.
