    Export Patterns to PDF

    And here is an export to pdf I just did on a new drawing file I created. Which looks the way I want

    Export Patterns to PDF

    I have attached 2 files. One is a straight export to pdf and the other is a straight print to printer which I then scanned as a pdf so I could attach here.

    Export Patterns to PDF

    No I've tried with and without the onscreen resolution checkbox. I typically print or export at 150dpi but it doesn't make a difference if I set to 300dpi. I'll attach some images to help illustrate the issue.
  4. I've been dealing with this issue for a while. Some of my VW files export pattern fills as nice smooth gray tones when exporting to PDF. Some files export them as the dots or 'zip' patterns that you see on-screen. Does anyone know what causes the different output to pdf?

    Rotate Worksheet

    I can't rotate a worksheet. In sheet layers. Is it possible?

    Faded Viewport Edge

    You mean create the polygon in the sheet layer? Not try to make the polygon with gradient the crop object. Do I have that right?

    Faded Viewport Edge

    Is it possible to have a viewport boundary that gradually fades the edges away rather than having an abrupt stop? I'm creating a presentation board and want the plan view and an elevation across the bottom to blend together

    Page Setup Issues

    Page Setup Issues

    That's right. I can send you a screen shot or you can tell me how to post one here. I might be narrowing down the problem to something with the pdf printer

    Page Setup Issues

    Just started having an issue with page setup. Page size will not change from Arch D (24"x36"). I can change the printer and page size in the Printer setup dialog but the page setup dialog defaults to D size. No matter what. Grrrrrrrr. It's doing this in all my VW files not just one. Anyone seen this before? I would post a screenshot of the 2 dialogs side by side but not sure I can do that here.

    The silence is deafening. On the Nomad question...

    Nomad and Tablets

    Has anybody out there been using Nomad? I'm looking for some feedback on the app.

    Nomad and Tablets

    I'm thinking about buying a tablet to simplify my life on the jobsite. I want to be able to access all my drawing files (in VW format or pdf) via the tablet, but also be able to make written notes on the tablet either freehand or with a text tool. The four things I need most at the job are my drawings (with the ability to take notes), a calculator (shooting grades), and a camera. Is anyone else using a tablet this way? Is anyone using the Nomad App right now? Some feedback would be much appreciated.
