How to take print out or convert the drawing into pdf?

While taking print out of drawing the template borders are going out of the page plz see attachment(1).

While exporting the drawing into pdf the borders come perfectly but the drawing lines are too thick plz see attachment (2).

Hi,

before you save a drawing as PDF you have to put following options into config.pro file.

use_8_plotter_pens YES

pdf_use_pentable yes

pen_table_file          PATH_to_pentable_file

Hi,

1.pdf ... you can set X-offset Y-offset before you print

2.pdf ... I can't recognize thick lines

Hi,



Thanks for the reply.

When you take out the print out of the 2nd pdf the drawing (components)
lines came thick. You cannot recognize the lines as they are overlapping
each other.

Hi,

I opened your pdf files and set 800% display.

1.pdf

1_pdf_800_percent.png

2.pdf

2_pdf_800_percent.png

 

My guess ... you use two different pen tables, because the line thickness is different.

Hi,

No I am using same pen table.

The only difference is second pdf is exported as pdf and first one is
created by using print option in drawing.

And that is my actual question How it is possible by using the same pen
table.
