PDF Doesn't Update to Reflect Project Changes Answered

I made several edits to an Instructable yesterday and the PDF file doesn't show any of those edits. I would guess that the PDF file is cached, but that cache should be cleared after edits are made so that premium users can download a PDF that reflects the current version.


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

I believe the PDF is generated the first time somebody downloads it (very few people edit their projects after publication, beyond maybe a few spelling fixes) - if the changes you made significantly alter the content or perception of your project, I'd drop an email to service@instructables.com and ask them to delete the existing PDF so you can generate another.
