Plotted PDFs: Text turning into little white boxes
TheyCallMeJohn posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHello Forum Friends, So I have a problem, new to me but hopefully someone has run into this and generated a solution. Our company plotted some PDFs using Publish, DWG to PDF and all the text came out fine but when our customer views the text in Bluebeam some of it is replaced by little white squares. It also prints out on their end with the little squares. Has anyone run into this and what is the fix?
Converting CAD Files to PDF with proper Lineweights
landgroup posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI'm having problems plotting to PDF's and maintaining the line weights etc.. that I get when I print to my plotter. It seems like Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 converts based on the color of my pens.... the lighter color value i.e. yellow, the lighter the grey tone. white is darkest. It ignores my lineweight settings, so I have no control on the quality of the output. Is it possible to get it to use the .ctb files that my plotter uses when creating it's PDF? I'm using AutoCAD LT 2010.
ACAD 2011 /DWG to PDF.pc3/ Can't get 2D Arcs to Plot as Hidden
zflowrpowr posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputAfter 2 days of trying to crack this I can use some help please! I've just upgraded to 2011 (which may or may not be the culprit) I use a CTB to Plot my 2D Plan-sets and I'm having problems getting several arcs in the drawing to plotas hidden lines. Lines and P-Lines on the same layer print just fine, it's only the arcs that I can't get to stop plotting as solid lines. I'll detail my settings and include screen shots below, any help at all will be greatly appreciated, Thanks for looking! Settings Visual Style- 2D Wireframe Shade Pplot- "as displayed" PSLT Scale- 1 Celt Scale- 1 MSLT Scale-1 LT Scale .5, .25, .1 even 1.0 none make a difference Tile Mode- 0 Screen in Model Space Screen in Viewport- I'm referring to the RED Hidden Lines PDF Preview of File- Hidden Lines are Great! Final PDF- The Lines stayed as hidden perfectly, but the arcs reverted to solid The exact same thing happens with a another set of of arcs elsewhere in the drawing.
