Embedded xls appear as black rectangle in pdf?

To all,

When printing a mathCAD document to PDF (using PDF creator) all embededd excel spreadshees are not printed properly. All I get is a black rectangle where the xls is. Any suggestion(s) or work around?

Those links are permanently dead.

Use a different printer driver. Cutepdf is free and has solved problems like this in the past.

Re: Embedded xls appear as black rectangle in pdf?

I don't see any problem by using Acrobat PDF Reader 10.1.3 and Mathcad 15 M010. What version of Mathcad are you using?

v14

Re: Embedded xls appear as black rectangle in pdf?

There is a chance to upgrade your version?

Re: Embedded xls appear as black rectangle in pdf?

requested IT to look into Premium 2.0 but the customer wants everything in v14

Also did the following test

1. Print to an Microsoft xps file

2. open xps fiel and then print to a pdf

Step 1 seems to print the embedded xls fine. Only problem is that the file is very large. in my case 62Mb (the mcad is 8.5Mb)

Re: Embedded xls appear as black rectangle in pdf?

I had the exact same problem and use to use Acrobat to edit the black image and remove it. Pain yes, but the only way I found of getting around it.

What version of M14 are you using?
