printing to PDF's


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to help out a friend, who is new to VW spotlight, print his plot as a PDF. I do this all the time using Mac OSX's Save As PDF feature, and it works a treat, but my friend's drawing will not print as a PDF. It prints as a white page document that has a file size of 1.5Mb!!! The drawing is A1. I can print parts of it to PDF as A4, A3 and A2 size, but when I go to the proper A1 drawing size I get nothing but a blank PDF.

This is very unusual. I regularly print VW Spotlight drawings to PDF files up to A0 in size with no trouble. Anyone know a solution or reason?

Since no one else has taken a stab at this, I'll suggest:

set AdobePS Acrobat Distiller Advanced Document Settings - Graphic - Print Quality: to 600dpi.

See if it works. I had trouble printing AutoCAD to Distiller and this was the solution. But I recall finding it on the VW discussion board! Go figure.
