I can't for the life of me figure out to export my drawing into a PDF...I know I've done this before but I can't the find a PDF file option anywhere under the export tab. Please help!

This is one of those questions where it makes a big difference what version you are using and what OS.

If your VW is relatively recent:

Mac:

File > Export > Export PDF

or

File > Print > PDF > Save as PDF

PC:

File > Export > Export PDF

I'm using Vectorwors 2011 on a PC.

My problem is that I don't see an option for exporting PDF...

The options are as follows:

Export dxf/dwg

" " database

" " epsf

" " image file

" " metafile

" " vectorscript

" " worksheet

There are also a bunch of 3d only options.

I'm so confused because I have done it before but I simply can't find the option for it anymore?

Perhaps you are using a custom workspace which does not contain the Export PDF command?? Try switching to a standard workspace and see if it's there...

Are you using Fundamentals?

Different workspaces have different export options. I thought that 2011 had a pdf export built in for PCs... My Mac version has PDF export in Fundamentals. (Macs have the option of using the VW pdf exporter or the native OS pdf tool.)

If you have other workspaces, try switching to another workspace and see if it comes back.

I was working in Fundamentals and that seemed to be the problem. As soon as I switched it to Landmark the export PDF option was available.

Thanks for your help!
