Ave -Just downloaded the Amendment 1 files. Everything looks fine except the gunnery charts - they are garbled. Is there a custom font that I need or was there a conversion error?Regards -James

James,I just double-checked the download of those files, and they came out clear as a bell for me. There should be no need for a custom font. When you say "garbled," what exactly do you mean? Can you send the file to me at cinc@odgw.com so I can look at it?Thanks, and we will get you your charts.Cheers,CinC

I just downloaded the files and when I open the gunnery chart file I also see a lot of non-standard characters displayed on the screen. By non-standard characters I mean wrenchs, tiny "&", and various mathmatical signs throughout the charts.The ship logs also display similar irregularities.Thanks

Same problem for me, the GQ3 Amendment 1 Campaign, Aerial & Scenario charts.pdf and GQ3 Amendment 1 Surface Gunnery Charts.pdf files appear corrupted.Note: this is on my work computer wher I have Adobe Reader 7.0.I'll try later today at home where I think I have 8.0.

The files won't read properly using the earlier pdf readers due to the files being set-up with Adobe's version 8. The best solution is to download the latest version (its free, BTW) from Adobe's website. That should fix the problem. (Had the same problem; my home computer has version 8.1.1 and the files read fine; my work system has version 7.0 and the files were garbled).

I've tried downloading the Amendment 1 files and they all come down fine except GQ3 Amendment 1 rules.pdf and GQ3 Amendment 1 Turn Indicator.pdf - both turn out to be 0 byte files even though the file info in the download library shows them to be bigger than 0 bytes.I have tried Firefox & Opera to download - IE 6 will not let me log into the site.I have Adobe 8.
