PDF Export Issues

Hey all,

 

I have recently been upgraded to Creo 4.0 M080 and I have started having an issue whereby exporting drawings to .pdf results in a drawing border rotated relative to the page. See attached image.

 

Does anyone have a solution for this? I have tried all of the different settings on the export screen. FYI, I create the .pdf using File>Save As>Export.

 

Thank you.

Re: PDF Export Issues

That's pretty extreme. Is this on every drawing or just this one?

Re: PDF Export Issues

Great suggestion, thank you.

 

I tried a completely unrelated BOM drawing and the export worked perfectly. So the question has changed slightly to what could have changed within a drawing to make this happen when you come to export. The drawing displays correctly in Creo. 

Re: PDF Export Issues

I've never seen it do any like that before. Maybe a just glitch. 

I would probably try to get away from that drawing if at all possible.

Try to replace the drawing format and see if it works

Re: PDF Export Issues

Thanks for the suggestion. I replaced the sheet format and it did not fix the issue. I'm beginning to think this drawing has become corrupt. 

Re: PDF Export Issues

At this point, I would probably try importing the drawing in to a new drawing using import drawing/data or the copy from other drawing, both in the layout tab of a new drawing and see if you can move the data to a new drawing without coying the problem.

The problem moved with the drawing Robot Mad

Re: PDF Export Issues

Wellllll....hmmm. At this point, if the drawing was not complicated, I would delete that one and just start over.

IF, the drawing was going to take a significant amount of time to recreate, I would keep troubleshooting.

 

Replace the drawing setup file (file-prepare-detail options change-use the open and find you standard drawing setup file). If it doesn't work, erase the drawing and re-open.

 

Maybe delete all the views (don't save!) and try printing and see if the problem persists. If not, erase the drawing out of memory, reopen and delete one view at a time till I find the problem view.

 

I'm running out of ideas!

Hey all,

 

Just to close this out, I know it's not a real solution but I ended up recreating the drawing. I tried all of the suggested solutions and a few of my own and nothing worked.

 

This was a BOM drawing, not particularly complicated as the explode and views were saved in the model, just a lot of placing balloons. Anyway, with the old file renamed and the new file saved, everything exports as it should. Thanks for the help.
