Fundamentals 2017 exporting pdf

Recommended Posts

When I go to VW help it shows how to export a file to PDF but when I go to the pull down menu under file there's no such selection to export to PDF. What I'm I missing?

I don't think Fundamentals has Export PDF included. Your best work around is Printing to PDF if you have acrobat or similar installed.

I believe that Export PDF IS available in Vectorworks Fundamentals, since 2018 was released. However, if you've migrated an old workspace, you may not have it. Have a look at how to edit your workspace... you should be able to add the command:

Thank you. I have no old workspaces. I had no ideal this basic function was not included in Fundamentals 2017, as I was told by VW sales, "it will do all you need". Very disappointed!

I'm sorry, but it wasn't included in Vectorworks Fundamentals 2017. Are you on a Mac or PC? If you have a Mac, you can use File > Print, and then select PDF at the bottom left of the dialogue box.
