VW Sheet Layers to PDF


Recommended Posts

I have been attempting to convert VW11.5 sheet layers into PDF format. Although I am getting OK results hatches and patterns come out as solid black. Have tryed raising the resolution etc but no luck. Am using a program called PDF-Creator 0.81 that I have downloaded for free. Should I get full version of Adobe?

Dan, I use the full Adobe Acrobat Pro 6.0 and have no problem. Once loaded, the pdf converter comes up as a printer choice in Vectorworks, so you just print to PDF. I use the default high quality setting, and "check don't send fonts". Then it asks about postscript vs. non. Use NON-postscript. Grayscale comes out as dots(half-tone. Line weights come out identical to printing directly form VW. I print out (in pieces) from the pdf for a check and we then take the pdf files to be plotted.
