Hi,

probably the problematic hole has small diameter. Just for testing purposes, please create "bigger" hole and generate PDF.

Nope. I tried but its having the same result.

PTC's output to PDF is flawed and doesn't duplicate what is seen on the screen.

If you can stand to, Printing to PostScript, using USE_SOFTWARE_LINEFONTS and INTF2D_OUT_STROKE_TEXT. The resulting *.ps file can be converted to a PDF with Adobe Acrobat Distiller, or GhostScript or any of several other distillers.

It will not have searchable text as PTC does not include the searchable text (I presume these require pdfmark entries to do so.)

How to save .drw as *.ps file ?

Hi,

in CR2 you can see following dialog box.

Thank you for your answer

Still the result is same. The center line of all the holes are shown as solid lines in pdf even after converting it from .ps file.

Hi,

please create testing data (part, drawing, PDF) and upload them using How to Attach a File to a Discussion Reply procedure.

Odd that changing the USE_SOFTWARE_LINEFONTS had no effect.
