Hi All,

This issue is resolved. The solution is to adjust the pdf file to correct it and put the right content, Panevezys.

Hi @Rome ,

Could you maybe elaborate more on how this was achieved ?

Me as well as other users having the same issue would be glad to see the correct steps for performing this. :slightly_smiling_face:
