Missing GD&T on PDF from drawing export

Missing GD&T on PDF from drawing export

Hello, I am newer to CREO 4.0. When I need to export my drawing to a PDF, my GD&T symbols go missing. Would there be something I need to add in my configuration editor from options? The only way I have found to fix this is to export as a TIFF file.

Thanks

Hey Steven,

Correct. Every symbol (perpendicularity, concentricity, etc.), it does not show up. See the image.

Thanks

Mark,

Please try to move the GD&T symbol in separate layer and use Layer save status before exporting to pdf

Re: Missing GD&T on PDF from drawing export

This is from the drawing view.

Steven's settings show that he's using Stroke Non TrueType Fonts - are you using that, or Stroke All Fonts?

These symbols probably do not exist in TrueType fonts, so you need to allow Creo to 'plot' them directly which is what these options do.

Hey Steven,

My settings match yours, except under fonts: I have USE TRUE TYPE FONTS.2017-04-27 08_37_00-PDF Export Settings.png

Hello,

I created a new layer, however, I am not familiar with "layer save status" where do i find that?

Re: Missing GD&T on PDF from drawing export

Hi,

set Stroke All Fonts option and export PDF.

Go to layer tree, RMB and then you will see third last option is Save status. See image
