DWF output is not as good as a PDF

I like the features of the DWF, but the PDF file matches what comes out of
our printer straight from AutoCAD. The DWF prints lines lighter.
I have seen this discussion before, and I can tell you it happens.
I would drop my PDF writer now if the output would be closer to the printed
page.

Scott,

Can you post the file or send me an example that I can look at?

Under Custom Properties for the PC3 file you use, did you up the DPI output
setting?

Same as PDF
No reason to make it any higher.

Scott,

I didn't get the files and your direct email address keeps bouncing on me.
So can you either resend the files directly to me or post a zip at:

news://discussion.autodesk.com/autodesk.autocad.customer-files

Thanks,
Tony

Sorry, I have a "NOSPAM" on my Hotmail address I use for this newsgoup. I
emailed you the file from my SWBELL.NET account.
