  1. Hi Benson, Appreciate the attempt to help, but it seems like a rather tedious workaround. I know that you can print\save as pdf but that does not preserve any classes to be saved as layers as compared to exporting as pdf instead. The file also gets uncontrollably big especially when using a lot of images. For now, I gather that the only workaround if I still intend to publish my drawings via sheet layers, is to export individual sheets as PDF and then manually compile it in Acrobat/Preview, as you have described. Rather disappointing that VW Fundamentals lacks such a rudimentary function to publish in PDF. In any case, thank you for the advice.
  2. Hi Nina, Thank you for your quick reply. Is there another workaround that allows me to print the sheets and compile quickly? I prefer not to use Cloud Publish as I still have to sign up for VW Service Select. Currently I make my drawings and print/export directly from design layers, but because of this I cannot take advantage of the viewport functions (since we can only create viewports in sheet layers). Is there a workaround in this case? Thank you.
  3. Greetings, I am attempting to streamline my drawing publishing process by making use of sheet layers. However, I am encountering a roadblock regarding the publish options. I have attached a screenshot of the drop down menu in question. I have seen other videos and screenshots where there is a PDF option here, but as you can see in my screenshot, there are only DWG/DXF & DWF options. I was wondering if any kind souls could advise regarding this discrepancy. Your help is highly appreciated; thank you!
