How can I set Creo View to send a pdf instead of a pvz file? Our publisher is set to create pdf's. When you view them in Creo and want to email them to a vendor or dealer, it wants to send a pvz file instead of a pdf.
I actually could not understand well, but I think your requirement is to create a pdf file from creo view express. If so, you can do so through printing option if you have adobe PDF printer software installed in you machine, though the option you are looking for in Creo View is not there but this is an alternative way.
do mean 2D or 3D PDF?
In case you mean 2D PDF and Creo View is trying to send a pvz of a drawing, there is a bug inside the configuration.
I'm just mean 2D pdf's of drawings. For example, our service technicians may need to send a dealer an assembly drawing. Creo View is displaying a pdf, so when they select file, send, send representation by email... they are expecting it to send a pdf. However it attaches a pvz. I think it is a configuration bug or something that they forgot to put a setting for on the options page... Thanks for the reply! Darin
Creo view cannot make pdf files yet, but if you vote up my idea, PTC may add the functionality in the future:
In PTC Creo 2, go to Save As - Save a Copy and you can choose PDF or PDF U3D. The PDF's come out great. I used PDF U3D on an assembly with no problem. If need be, you can crop the PDF created.
