Shaded views created on a drawing published to a .plt do not appear at all. Reason for publishing to .plt file is to allow markups. Solution is to manually change any shaded view to anything else. We experimented with publishing the drawings to pdf format, but the method the publisher uses to create a pdf vs creating a pdf from a .ps file are two different things. When printing to a postscript the pcf files allow way more flexibility in controlling numerouts plot settings.
Previously with Intralink-WF3 we printed .ps files andused adobe distiller to automatically create pdfs and store in a library outside of intralink. Worked great, now were finding with publishing from pdmlink there are many issues we never would have imagined.
