Hey,

I'm trying to create a few paper wallets with help from this tutorial. https://blockchain.info/wallet/paper-tutorial

I'm following it to the letter but I encounter a problem when I'm trying to print the paper wallet; the tutorial asks "On the main navigation bar click on [Import / Export] then on the [Paper Wallet] tab then print the page." But when I click on the [Import / Export] tab, it promts me to enter my password, but after that I get the error "ReferenceError: ImportExport is not defined"

Does anyone know what's going on?

I'm using google Chrome in private browsing mode as suggested in the Tutorial on a windows 7 64 machine

Thanks in advance!

Equilux.

I'm having the exact same problem, can't seem to get anywhere with the import/export tab while in offline mode - comes up with the same "ReferenceError: ImportExport is not defined"...

If I navigate away from the import/export tab and click back on it, i just get the notification bars above and a blank white screen underneath, some help with this would be sweet...

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...

I found then answer to this part of the tutorial. You need to login in to the wallet in online mode then go offline and relogin, then you can get to the export after making the new wallet. Now i'm stuck on the deleting the private key part.

Hey man cheers for the reply, yeah well i tried what you said but when I relogged in i was getting a "Error Downloading Account Settings Template" error...

however, I found that if you log in online, then click the Import/Export tab, go offline, and then click the Receive Money tab where you can create the new address, it works - you can then go back to the Import/Export tab to print the paper wallet!

Hmmm, deleting the private key, I don't get this either... I assumed that the public and private key was deleted when you logged out offline, leaving only the paper copy you printed. I'm going to try and send a tiny amount to the address on the paper wallet, see what happens and if I can find it again...

EDIT: Right, added my new paper wallet address as an add-only address (by physically typing it in) and sent it 0.001 btc, in theory I should need the private key (which only I have here on this paper) to access it. Hope I'm doing this right haha...

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...

That much be what I did then, heh. I just ended up printing it out and adding the public key by hand seems to have worked. I haven't really tested beyond that though.

Easier to:
1. Save the bitaddress.org page to your desktop
2. Disconnect from the internet
3. Open up the bitaddress.org page that's on your desktop
4. Generate however many addresses you want
5. Print out as many copies as you want for safe keeping.
6. Connect to the internet
7. Go to Blockchain.info website
8. Click "Wallet"
9. Log in
10. Click the "Import/Export" tab
11. Enter "Add Watch Only Address"

It's a pain to type in the whole Public Key, so if you hit the "Send Money" button, you'll have the option to scan the QR code of your newly generated address. Once the Key pops up, simply copy it to your clipboard, go to Step 10 above, and paste it in.

Wah-la, you have the convenience of Blockchain, and the security of a paper wallet.
