Shaded Views in PDF's

Shaded Views in PDF's

Hello ProUsers,

We have been having some issues with adding shaded views in our drawings and when the PDF file is created one view will crop over the adjacent one if it is within the views bounding box envelope. I think this only occurs with two adjacent shaded views, but not possitive of that. Anyone else seeing this behavior and if so are there any fixes to this other than moving the views farther apart so they don't have overlaping view boxes? Please advise if you can shed some light on this. We are on WF5 M30, but saw the samebehavior in WF4

Thanks,

RE: Shaded Views in PDF's

We just had PTC figure this one out. Our issue was that the shaded views would cover up some of the titleblock on the drawing. The view itself did not appear to overlap the titleblock, but the area for the view increased when the PDF was created. The issue was resolved for us by changing the shaded view dpi from 150 to 100 (default is 150 if not set). Here is the option to add in the config.pro:

drawing_shaded_view_dpi 100

PTC recommended changing the dpi to 50, but then the shaded views do not look good. Having the dpi at 100 still has pretty good resolution.
