I am using AutoCAD 2012 LT.
One problem I have discovered is that when I 'plot transparency' within some paperspaces (not all) within a drawing, the pdf is either printed very fuzzy when printed with Adobe pdf (it looks like it has been rasterised very low res) or it prints circles and arcs broken when printed with dwg to pdf. Note- I have ensured a high dpi, and installed a new pdf writer which has not solved the issue.
I have looked on the forum but I've not found anyone with the same problem yet
I have other issues with the same drawings such as it will not open/takes an age to open in AutoCAD 2007 LT/2007 even though it is back saved. It opens fine in AutoCAD 2008. Perhaps these are symptoms to a related problem? (Also note I ensure my drawings are audited and purged, no/few splines, etc).
It appears by plotting transparency in any drawing I've tried this morning creates fuzzy drawings using my Adobepdf printer. (But I think my problem with the dwg to pdf is actually a viewing issue -I checked this on other computers and they all view the pdf with broken arcs, but in photoshop they are not broken).
I think I will install some other pdf printers and check if they work, as it appears it might be related to this then...? My opening problems in AutoCAD 2007 I will repost in a different forum as maybe these problems aren't related...
I didn't actually. We've resorted to never ticking the transparency box when printing which isn't great, I have had to change some of our drawings to enable us to do this.
It is not just a viewer issue, as we get some kind of problem using any of my pdf makers when I tick the box (either the page is completely blank, or it is all slighter whiter, or it is fuzzy). I open the pdfs in Photoshop and I can see the issues there, not just from the pdf viewer.
Make sure you have these two updates installed:
Then try to reproduce the problem in a brand new drawing created from the acadlt.dwt template. We want to be sure the problem isn't something with your existing drawings.
