PDF Created from WF4

Does anyone know if there is a way to change the line ends to mitre when a PDF is created from a drawing in WF4? Currently they square off as in the image.

Re: PDF Created from WF4

zoom out? 

Tried looking for this a while back ago and could not find anything to adjust this.

I do have a .dop file to auto set printing features (stroke fonts, for example) but mitering is not one of them.

Yeah it is only when you zoom in that it ooks a bit scrappy. I'm sure I have seen some line end options but it may have been on another CAD package AutoCAD or I-Deas perhaps.

This can be managed using Postscript output and manually editing it to:

1 setlinecap

1 setlinejoin

Then distill with Adobe Acrobat Distiller, Ghostscript, or your favorite.

In later versions PTC added these for PDF SAVE-AS/EXPORT, but never fixed Postscript.

I don't think it goes back that far, but the config items PDF_LINECAP and PDF_LINEJOIN
