Save as PDF 1.6 in Chrome gives up on 2nd use

raphaelbm wrote on 2012-11-13:
I have just installed your product as an extension in Google Chrome browser. Very impressive and I am sure I shall use it a lot to make "photographs" of web pages.

When I use the Chrome Extension "Save as PDF" it works well and the current web page is rendered as PDF.
I get to download a file and save it.
- I open the file with my PDF Reader
- When I use it a second time the procedure fails with an error message telling me that the web page is the wrong format (unsupported). See attached picture.

Weird? What is the fix for this? Surely I don't have to reload my browser every time I use "Save as PDF 1.6"?
Any help appreciated. thx Raphael

Hi, thanks for the detailed feedback. This seems to be caused by a recent Google Chrome update, we will look into it.
In the meantime, reloading the page (Ctrl+R) before a second use of our extension on the same page should help.

Thanks. The workaround to just refresh before attempting another impression of the page works well.

We released version 1.7 today which should fix this issue.
