Not only should they reformat they should also copy the document into a MS Word program and run spell checker. The text in the Race Editor does not match the text on the laid out ballot. Would not lay out initially in GEMS 1-17-20 but with modification to the question it generated ok. Thanks for the passcode Dmitry.
The attached database is from Lowndes Co., GA and the password is monster. They are using GEMS 1-11-8.
When attempting to generate ballots, they continually receive the “Could Not Lay Out All Ballots” message even after resetting artwork then attempting to generate again.
I do not have GEMS 1-11-8 and am not in a position to download it right now.
When I opened the database in GEMS 1-17-22 I did not experience this problem.
Any input is appreciated.
