    Angry Plot to PDF text problems

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    When I use plot to pdf, I look at the pdf and everything looks fine, however when I plot said pdf file I get text that is "in jail"

    the only thing that is different between the different text file is using wipeout or mask, will show the bars.

    I've tried to upload a pic, but its not letting me.

    Hi

    Which .PDF software are you using? The built-in autodesk driver?

    As suggested rather use the built in Autodesk DWG to PDF plot driver . Don't think you can upload until you become a full member...

    That is incorrect.

    New members can do anything a Full Member can except PM, External links are moderated and need approval, all else works the same.

    Try Go Advanced at the lower right of reply box, then Manage Attachments.

    What browser are you using?

    As suggested, try the DWGtoPdf.pc3 that comes with AutoCAD to plot to PDF.
