  1. Pls help relative VW newbie! I'm trying to print some rendered isometric drawings of a garden. After exporting to PDF, Top/Plan views print fine. Soon as I export rendered isometric view, it opens up fine as a PDF. All detail is viewable on screen, but what comes out of printer is missing large chunks of the image. Been to Professional printing shop and same happens there. Anyone had a similar problem? Never had this issue before with previous work. PDF reader 9.4 and VW 2011 SP4.

    Export to PDF problems....!

    Problem seems to have been resolved. It turns out that my A2 sheet layer template was causing the problem. I can't for the life of me understand why, but as long as I had the words 'copyright 2010 by George Phillips. All rights reserved. Do not reprint without permission' located next to my title block, then Vectorworks wouldn't export to PDF?!?!?! Strange.... As soon as I redrafted my A2 sheet layer template and moved this wording to the bottom left of the sheet, then the problem disappeared. I guess I just found some glitch.... but I did waste three days getting to the bottom of the problem. The wierd thing was that this A2 sheet layer template exported to PDF fine from a tired old XP machine, but my new notebook wasn't playing the game! Thanks for your help. I've found these forums really useful.

    Export to PDF problems....!

    Even if I reduce the resolution to 72 dpi, Adobe still bombs out. I have no probblem exporting to PDF in A3, it's just A2 that causes the Adobe brain freeze!

    Export to PDF problem...!

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe I wasn't being clear. I am trying to export one drawing at a time. The process worked fine until today - I have already exported many files to PDF. All this leads me to think that maybe Microsoft or Adobe has installed an auto update that is now conflicting with Vectorworks.
  7. Hi - I'm very new to Vectorworks and could use some friendly advice. I've been creating construction drawings and putting them onto A2 landscape sheet layers by creating a viewport. I want to be able to take my files to my local printer in PDF format. I click File>Export>Export to PDF. After exporting, my Adobe 9.3 reader fires up but soon displays an 'out of memory' message, quickly followed by an'invalid plugin' error message. The export to PDF works fine for very basic drawings, the more detailed construction drawings. I am tearing my hair out with this. Can anyone help?
