Creo View adapter to have monochrome option for inventor drawings

Creo View adapter to have monochrome option for inventor drawings

There is no current method provided by PTC to have monochrome PDF's created.  PDF's generated are currently in color.

To create a monochrome PDF, use these steps:

1) File-Save As-Save a Copy

2) Set the file type to PDF

3) set the output folder

4) press OK

5) PDF Export Settings dialog box, right side middle is Color Selection: Color, greyscale or Monochrome. Select Monochrome.

6) press OK

The Quick Export PDF uses the settings from the above, but I am not sure how to set them so Monochrome is the default.

My test was a Quick PDF (color), Save As set PDF Monochrome (mono), Quick PDF (mono).

So the system does remember that you last set it to Monochrome.

Even loading a new drawing produced a Quick PDF in mono, in fact all Quick PDFs are now mono, even though I set the Save as PDF back to color and generated some in color.

If you want the Creo View publishing engine to generate your files in momochrome, there should be a recipe file that will do that.

Have you tried specifying a single pen plotter, or monochrome laser plotter?
