Recommended Posts

anyone explain the attached?

the dash style looks fine on screen, but when exported to PDF it goes wobbly and faceted. you have to zoom in to see, but it is there

cheers

In File > Export > Export PDF, double the DPI setting that is currently set there and export again. Tell me if when you compare the new export and the old the wobble still appears or if it seems different.

Hi Jim

thanks for getting back to me. i had to up the DPI to 1200 before it was acceptable. still a little kink or stubby end on some of the dashes. usually i don't ever export above 300 dpi due to file size.

oddly, a solid line circle at 300 dpi is fine, but the same circle with a dash style isn't. is this just something i have to get over, or is it some inherent problem with dash styles?

thanks

Do all dash styles appear this way? If you do a test at a reasonable 300DPI with 6-7 of the default styles used on circles in an export, do they appear with the same wobble or do they have varying appearances?

Test 2 dash styles 1-6 applied at 300 dpi, still all have a slight wobble.

Test 3 set at 1200dpi. a lot better, but still has the wobble
