It appears that everytime I export to PDF, and then I open the PDF, it tells me that an ARIALMT font is missing? Anyway to fix this so the error goes away?

Thx

Try getting a PDF using the Print Menu.

 

When selecting a printer u have the option to select 'DWG To PDF' or any other PDF Related printer name.

 

Then just press 'OK' and it'll ask u where to save the PDF-File.

 

Hope that helps,

This is weird, it only happens when I try to create a PDF using the "DWG to PDF" option in the print dialogue box or use the "exportpdf" command. If I create the PDF using CutePDF it is fine?

Thx

@Kevin

 

Yeah we @ work also use CutePDF Writer as our default DWG to PDF Creator, it works fine.

 

@syria

 

Isnt it obvious he has version 2008? why else would he have posted it on a 2008 related forum?

Speaking of CutePDF, the only thing I don't like about CutePDF is that wen I create a PDF it is always rotated 90 degrees, so then I have to save it to te desktop, then use another software to rotate the PDF the correct way? Do you have the same issue? How can I prevent this from happening?

Thx

Using R2010 and posting in R2008 forum?

 

Change the way DWG to PDF.PC3 handles fonts, set it to CAPTURE ALL (R2010 ability, not R2008).
