Printing to Adobe PDF with "Remove Object Line Weights" Problem

498 Views, 8 Replies

Hello, I am runnning Inventor 2013 Professional 64 bit.  When I print to an Adobe PDF I have selected "Remove object line weights".  The problem I am experiencing is that the result is the same whether it is checked or not.  The result I would expect is that the object line weights won't display on the pdf.  Does anyone have any other suggestions that I could try?  Thanks very much.

When using R2013 to export IDW to PDF with "Remove Object Line Weights" selected, it works fine for me. So could you attach the dataset for more investigation?

Thanks,

River, I have a dataset ready for you and I have tried to post it but can't due to a file size restriction.  The dataset zipped is about 13.8 MB.  Can you provide another location for me to post it to? - Christiaan

Are you "EXPORTING" to pdf or "PRINTING"?

I am printing to pdf.  The reason is because I have an Excel spreadsheet embedded.  The spreadsheet is unreadable if I export to pdf.  If I print to pdf the spreadsheet is very clear and is searchable.

Thank you to prepare the dataset, and please send me your email and name. So we could provide one location to you to upload the dataset. When the location is ready, one email will be sent to you for details.

Thanks,

What was the solution? I'm having a similar problem. I'm using Inventor 13 and trying to print .idw's to pdf with best fit and object line weights removed. Scale is typically .06 to .30.  Inventor isn't removing the line weights, so instead of nice clear thin lines I'm getting some thick dark ones. Didn't have this problem with earlier versions of Inventor.
