RE: Topeka County, KS - Changing from 18" ballot to 11" ballot - internal error
Thanks. However, I am not sure if they are
willing to upgrade at this time. I will talk to them and find out.
If not, I will have them fake it like you suggested before.
fixed; 1.17.4. Jeff I will send you a pre-release to
Jeff, I am
guessing you want to just change the length of card 24 for both ballot 24 and
ballot 25. Simple enough, but GEMS doesn't know whether that change
should apply to ballot 25 (which shares card 24) or not. With the fix I
just put in, GEMS will assume it does *not* apply to ballot 25. So,
after you change the length of card 24, a new card 47 will
appear. This card is the same as card 24, only with a different
length. Next go into ballot 25 and change the length of card 24
"again". GEMS will find card 47, and card 24 will
As you can see,
the logic here is incredibly complicated. I would like to review
multi-card ballots some time next year if we start getting more accounts that
mix and match multicard ballot lengths. Seems to me we should be able to
make GEMS smart enough to know the length change applies to ballot 25 as well,
but for today I want to just get the bug (ie, the internal error)
will find out when they need to get ballot postscript files to the
printer. If it is right away, I will do as you said. If not, I
will wait to hear from you.
Okay, I see
the problem. It is tricky. Jeff, if you are under the gun,
create a bugus "foo" voter group, and put a blank "foo" header on the back
of Card 24. You need to use the ballot editor not the card editor,
else you won't see the foo header in the list.
I'll try to
have a real fix this weekend. Multi card ballot manual editing with
common plates is not fun.
