Known bugs in new fill-able Eagle workbook
- Just FYI... I have reported to the national group two bugs with the new Eagle workbook...
When you enter the Eagle candidate name on the first cover sheet, it was their intention, that name be automagically populated in other fields throughout the workbook. Unfortunately, the underlying data links are not quite linked appropriately.
So on page "C1", the data entered in the Eagle Scout
candidate's name field, also appears on page "7".
It should also appear on page 6.
Another error, is that is should also appear at the top
of page "8", but instead the Scoutmaster's name is showing.
You cannot fix it, cause it then changes the info for the
Scoutmaster on page "6".
I received a note back this morning, that they have logged
the issue and that this and other feedback will be corrected
and updated soon via the same link to the National form.
The take away message, Be Prepared, and DO NOT copy this form
to your local web servers or unit storage. ALWAYS advertise
the single link to the National forms. That way, everyone
works from the correct and latest version.
One other important note, NOT related to the workbook:
ALL BSA forms were meant to be "filled" using Adobe Reader
version 8.x or higher. You will get inconsistent results
with lower revisions of Reader. Also, never use Apple/Mac
"Preview" app to edit BSA forms. There is a long known bug
that will make the edits unusable for those reading it with
Adobe Reader. There is a tool that can be used to fix forms
completed with Preview, but it is better to just not create
the problem initially.
