Intro text not on PDF? Answered

I just purchased a Pro account and noticed that generating a PDF leaves off the text in the 'Intro' section.  That does not happen on the 'View all steps on one page' option.  Is this a bug?  Is there a work around?  It certainly leaves out a lot of very valuable information in the Instructable.

Thanks

I'm seeing intro text on all pdf downloads - the default one, and customized ones.  Which Instructable are you having trouble getting the into step included on?  Are you still having this problem?

Thanks for your reply.. I can't get the intro on ANY instructable.  The other steps and images show up just fine though.

I just tried to to recreate your bug by logging into your account (I'm an admin) and I was able to download the .pdf's with the intro text included.  Seems like we're going to have to dig a little bit deeper. 

Can you please email me one of the .pdf files that you've downloaded that isn't showing the intro text? 

I can take a look at it more closely and try to see what exactly is going on.  Please send the .pdf file to: noahw at instructables dot com. 

Thanks - we'll try to get this resolved!
