In Chrome Developer Tools, click on the inspector icon (#1). Then Click on the element you are interested in (#2). (#3) You should see some html that mentions what graphic it is using.

This is the image which the application is trying to load;
I searched for this and it seems to be in the JS folders, so what should I do next?

Well I am actually going backwards with this now.
Assumptions - from the manual;
PDF's can be created using a Book, which when added to a Form, renders the PDF using the criteria selected. This can be downloaded or printed.

Works fine in the Mobile Simulator running on the Desk Top - except the print.gif doesn't show, just a blue blob, but the process works fine.
In the Mobile version uploaded to a server - still accessed for testing using a Desk Top - the Book will not render as it cannot be found, so I presume that the process doesn't work using a remote server.

All I am trying to do is to be able to save a PDF constructed from data on a server using the Book feature, to my Tablet.

So, the question is;
" is it possible to use a Book to create and save a PDF using data on the server database, to a Tablet?"

Edit. After going in circles, it might be the different versions of Android. Works as expected on a new 'phone - not so good on an older Tablet.
