Line size - DRW to PDF - WF5

Hi everyone,

We are having trouble publishing drawings since we switched to WF5. The line sizes are too big. We get the same issue when doing a Save a Copy to PDF. I've attached a couple of PDFs to show the differences.

Any ideas what I can change to fix this?

Thanks,

Fred

Did you activated the "USE PENTABLE" Option in the PDF Export Settings window? I think that this option it's only available in WF 5.0 M020 datecode

Hi,



I tried that (activate the "use pentable" option) and it still doesn't
work. I checked my pen tables and they work fine when I print on paper.
It's as if the publisher does not recognise or acknowledge the table.



Thanks,

Fred

Not sure if it is related or not, but we are having issues with "stroke all fonts" in WF5.0 M20 not working properly. The line size is 10 times too big or more. I opened a call with PTC tech support and they said the issue is resolved in WF5.0 M30. Maybe the line size issue will also be resolved. M30 was supposed to be available yesterday, but it is not out yet.

Fred,
In your config.pro set the following parameters:

PDF_USE_PENTABLE YES
PEN_TABLE_FILE "SPECIFY THE LOCATION OF YOUR PEN FILE"
