PDF Quality



Hello everyone,

I do not know why when I export a pdf from a sheet layer the quality is horrible lately. 

I am using VW 2019 on a iMac. What did I touched to change the settings? the sheet layer is at 150pdi and usually is enough, actually for 2D drawings I usually use 72dpi, but since this morning when I export/print a pdf the quality changed. 

Any suggestions? I have already tried to change the dpi in the sheet layer or the general document settings but nothing happened.

If you usually have 2D (Vector) data,

72 DPI may be enough, as PDF usually has also Vector data,

which is scale independent and always sharp.


Therefore I think you may have accidentally activated "Rasterize"

This will lose all Vector data and safe as an image file.

(Sometimes a valid workaround to avoid visibility problems and such)

In case of a rasterization, the 72 or 150 DPI may be too low to

show a drawing as a raster image in PDF.

@Giulio Can you just confirm for me what exactly looks worse on your end? When I am comparing these PDFs, they have some differences in geometry and some line weights, but the overall quality seems to be identical?
