Color of Exported Images

Bruce Kieffer


What I see in my Vectorworks file is what I want to see when I export the image, but it is not. Is there a file format or setting that will give me the same results as what I see in Vectorworks?


This screen shot is accurate. Oddly it can reproduce the colors extremely close (if not exactly the same), but Vectorworks cannot.



This is a JPG export:



This is a PNG export:



This is a PDF export:

I haven't been too concerned about this since I retired, but I think that it was fixed or at least improved in newer version of Vectorworks.

It's definitely still a problem in VW2023, if you use "export as PDF".


If you go to "print" and then in the print dialogue select "save as PDF" as the destination, instead of a printer, the PDF produced that way seems to have undistorted colour, so this is a workaround of sorts, but it doesn't help if you are batch-exporting drawing sheets via the "publish" command.
