    PDF Quality

    Hello everyone, I do not know why when I export a pdf from a sheet layer the quality is horrible lately. I am using VW 2019 on a iMac. What did I touched to change the settings? the sheet layer is at 150pdi and usually is enough, actually for 2D drawings I usually use 72dpi, but since this morning when I export/print a pdf the quality changed. Any suggestions? I have already tried to change the dpi in the sheet layer or the general document settings but nothing happened. new.pdf Original.pdf
  2. General If a list of Sheet Layers is present in the right hand side of the Publish dialog, then using the Publish To PDF>Options dialog to adjust output dpi seems to have no effect. The settings are not saved in Saved Set, or even if the Options dialog is closed/reopened. Adjusting the dpi settings seems to have not effect on published file size. Specific cases 1. Several methods will select all the items in the list: A. Select any item, then press CmdA (MacOS Select All). 2. Click/Drag from top to bottom of the list to highlight all items. 3. Click to select the top item, then Shift Click the bottom item. The problem: If method A is used, the Publish To PDF Options button is grey. Why? If methods B or C are used to select the entire list, the Publish To and Options buttons are active. 2. Select the entire list with method B or C above and click the Options button, then adjust the DPI setting, eg to 72. Save the set and name it SavedSet-72dpi. Empty the Publish list, eg with the Remove All button (dbl arrow). The problem: Call the SavedSet-72dpi (loads the set into the Publish side). Click any item in the list, then the Options button. The dpi shows the default (300 in my drawing). The 72 dpi was not saved in the Set. 3. Similar to above, but for individual sheets instead of entire set. In any publish list (saved set or new list), click/select a single item>Options. Adjust the dpi value. Close the Options dialog. Reopen the Options dialog. The dpi reverted to original setting. Any thoughts on controlling the output dpi of sets or singles within the publish list? Thanks, -B
  3. Design Layer Raster Rendering defaults to 72 DPI in Document Settings. Isn't that quite antiquated ? I measured my old 30" Cinema Display that is far from any Retina Display today. Even for this I get a Display Resolution of 102 DPI. And I thought, 72 DPI was CRT only decades ago, all upcoming LCDs had about 90 DPI ? As my experience with higher DPI settings, since I use SL VP Renderings, was very positive, I also increased my DLRR to 150 DPI (so more than my Monitors 102 DPI) EDIT : looks like 102 DPI = Monitor Res is better though. So far I see only advantages as Line Display in OpenGL is much better now, even my Finder VW File Icons Preview look no much sharper and better. So my question, do I miss any disadvantages ? Will this really make my OpenGL slower or weaker ? Does this also help 2D Views line quality ? Anything else ?
