Chart component print quality

Chart component print quality

Does anyone else have the problem where the print quality of the chart components is abysmal?

 

When I print my Mathcad worksheets to .pdf the text and maths comes out great but the charts look a jpeg that has been saved 1000 times on Windows XP.

Mathcad's graphing facilities leave things to be desired.

Prime's graphing facilitities leave many, many more things to be desired.

I use the Print Screen button (PrtScn-F7) for the solve this problem.

Fewer and fewer people know why a button PtrScn has a name Print Screen.
Do you know?

Hello Valery,

 

I suppose because it reads out the screen cache to render a vector graphic?! I'm just guessing.

Hi,

 

I use PDF Creator 3.3.2 free application for printing to PDF.  Graphics are OK.

HI,

 

Sorry wrong example.

Here numbers are crisp even at high magnification.

PDF Creator 3.3.2

Hi Terry,

 

yeah, numbers and text all print to pdf perfectly - however the chart component which was introduced in Prime 5.0 looks like garbage when printed.

Ah, Prime 5. Installed-had a look at the menu-uninstalled.

Same here. PDF Creator, default settings.
