    I clicked on download but it is only coming up with 3 pages and no actual words (same as the preview). I've tried refreshing the page as well as closing and and opening again. Nothing seems to work.

      Hi Janelle, We're experiencing a technical difficulty with our word walls where the vocabulary list is not populating the cards. We are working on this and apologise for the inconvenience. In the meantime, a default PDF has been uploaded and can be accessed via the Download button or the 'Select a Download' section below the resource description. Also, if your subscription level gives you access to Studio, you can create and customise the word list by clicking on the 'Customise' button beside the download button. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. We're more than happy to help!

    I am confused - it says that there are 60 word wall cards but the document is only 3 pages - the 3rd being the blank one. Is the document missing all the actual word cards?? Cheers

    • Greg Meakin

      ah, all good now thanks!

      Hi Greg Thanks for getting in touch with us. May I ask if you're clicking on the 'Preview' button or the 'Download' button? From our end, everything seems to be working OK. There are 21 pages when you download but only 3 are visible in the preview. Please let us know if you continue to have problems. Kind regards Janeen
