PDF Export line error

Just upgraded to AC Electical 2014, and I'm trying to export a drawing as a .PDF file, but for some reason any lines with a curvature become mis-aligned. Any help to fix this? Are there any settings I need to change?

HI Barneel,


You could try changing the Display Resolution for Arcs and Circles (default arc and circle Smoothness is 1000). 

Change it to 5000, and regenerate the Model (type in "RE" on the command line). Then Re-capture the PDF.


A higher smoothness will lead to a better PDF Capture.  

Don't make the Arc and Circle Smoothness to high or it might take to long to Regenerate.


I hope this Helps,


James Alger
