sheet to pdf issue




I'm trying to export a sheet layer to pdf, but the pdf I get from that makes some symbols a blurry grey. I've tried a higher dpi number, in both the export as the sheet layer, that did not solve it. I'm out of ideas and hoping someone sees what I'm overlooking.


thanks a lot,

As JMR mentioned, the lineweight might be too thick for some items, then there is some overlapping which interferes with some of the symbols. Another thing is the scale of the output, if the scale is too small then some symbols will "crumble" either because of things getting too compressed or the lineweight not scaling properly.


The PDF content itself is not blurry on my monitor if you zoom in a bit. When zoomed out all the way it may give the impression of blurry but that is because of the line thickness being too thick for the zoom scale. So you may want to try changing the line scaling within the viewport to see if that solves your issue.
