A good PDF writer?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest a good PDF-writing program? One that can create PDF files of large-format drawings for other people to print on plotters. And one that works well with VectorWorks, not distorting the drawing. And that can embed fonts so I won't have to deal with that issue any more.

your system and version stats were not posted. but if you are using mac's, OS X, and VW 9.5, the 'print to pdf' button on the print dialog box works great. we no longer have problems with shaded backrounds, or font substititions. we used to use 'print tp pdf', the freeware available on the web. but as i recall, he did not support windows. hope this helps...
