    Default Printing PDFs / JPGs - hatch / super hatch errors

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi. Me again

    How do you print PDFs - that is not that I don't know how to do it at all, but I wonder if there's a better way than I'm currently using. Using the Adobe PDF printer, or the ACAD 'DWG to PDF' printer to print from a scaled viewport within a layout, I tend to get all kinds of errors all over my hatch and image hatch areas, like in the picture below.

    Increasing the resolution loads - to 1200dpi, doesn't seem to do anything.

    Ultimately I also export the PDF to a flat JPG as the layered nature of the PDF usually makes it painfully slow to load and would crash most of my clients computers. So what I am saying is if there's a way to bypass the PDF printers and print straight to high res JPG that might be good. I realise there's the JPGOUT command, but this just exports a 72dpi image as far as I remember.

    I print to Adobe Pro. The resulting *.pdf file can be saved in numerous formats.
    One of which does a great job, save as, JPEG.

    I often "crop" the *.pdf and output (save) what I want to *.jpg.

    90+% of people I know use CUTEPDF

    Its free to download off the web and I personally have never had a problem with it.
