PDF Measurements in Nomad

Jon wat


Hi all, 


Does anyone have any troubleshooting tips for measuring PDFs in nomad? I can’t get my files to scale correctly. 

Everytime I generate a pdf from a vwx file in nomad the scale is off. 

the only documentation I could find says to “make sure the viewport is formatted correctly” but I can’t find what that means. 

move tried changing scale of the viewports on the sheet layers, changing the sheet layer page size, removing any crops from the viewport…I’m at a loss. I’d really like to use the measuring feature on site.

Hi @Jon wat,

Are you submitting the .vwx for PDF generation from Nomad, i.e. for processing on the cloud? Only PDFs generated by the cloud contain measure data. Also, measuring works for top/plan viewports. Here is the Help article for this functionality: Ifhttps://cloud.vectorworks.net/portal/help/pages/measure-and-mark-up-pdf-files/. If you still can't get it to work, please let me know and I will try to help you further.

Best regards,

Iskra Nikolova
