PDF export = zero kb

Recommended Posts

right, i have had this problem for years now, and have listed the problem in the past, but it has really got to me today as i have had lots of plans to export to PDF.

Here goes, when exporting PDFs from VW sometimes for no reason at all it will corrupt the file and leave it with zero kb file size. the way round this is to reduce the characters in the title. The titles are not long, just a drawing number and abbreviated drawing name, probably between 10-15 characters in most cases. i know you can use the PDF print function, but that gives bigger file sizes and i dont want to do that.

is anyone else having these problems?

this is such a simple task to perform, i dont know why VW cant handle it

no funny symbols at all in the file names, maybe this is something that has been solved in later additions, will just have to suffer until we upgrade

i had this sort of problems and it was caused by a corrupted font...make sure you use only "healthy" fonts in the particular file you want to export from!

That did the trick in my case!

good luck!

ah, that now makes sense, we use DIN font a lot and it sometimes causes problems, sometimes 'b' 'p' letters flip upside down, i think this may be the cause, unfortunately its a font we all have to use on our templates across the company, will see what i can do.
