WF4 - PlusMinus becomes # when saving drawings as pdf!

Anyone else experienced this? Better still, anyone know how to fix it? Thanks Phil

I haven't seen that one yet. We have experienced dimension witness lines jumping from the radius origin to intersecting edges in some PDF's.

Two fixes: 1 - Choose the 'stroke all fonts' option. This takes your text and turns it into dumb lines and arcs. 2 - Ignore the PDF button on the toolbar. Use Acrobat PDF printer or something like Ghostscript instead. There have been many reports of the built in PDF functionality screwing up drawings in WF3 & WF4. Changing text, moving lines, changing line styles. Personally, I'd avoid the PTC make a PDF button like the plague.
