Single letter on a page - won't output

Hi there
I wanted to PDF a series of single letters on SRA3 pages. Simple and easy...

New document, SRA3 portrait.
Draw a text box, corner to corner, to fill the page.
Type a single capital 'H' in Helvetica. Centred, then centred vertically (Cap+Accent).
Enlarge the letter to 960pt to be 'big' within the area.
Export to PDF.
This gives an error message "Unable to create the "Users/.........pdf file"

I get the same error if trying to output a single letter at whatever size! I've tried 4pt to 500pt.

Now, if I add another letter (even one that's only, say, 4pt) it will output!

Why can't I PDF a single letter??
What the dickens is going on?

We have resolved this issue in QXP 2017. Could you please try by downloading the QXP 2017 and install as evaluation copy.

Aaaah! So it's a recognised bug!
Phew!
At least I'm not going mad! I thought that after 28 years of using Quark I'd finally lost the plot :)

Thanks for the reply!

Another workaround is to check the checkbox "export empty pages", then it will also output.

Thanks
