I am simply trying to print or save an Inventor .DWG file to a .PDF file via C# - the issue being that the .PDF page size must correspond to the active sheet size in Inventor.
When I try printing to a PDF using:
oPrint.Printer = "Adobe PDF";
oPrint.ScaleMode = PrintScaleModeEnum.kPrintBestFitScale;
oPrint.PaperSize = PaperSizeEnum.kPaperSize11x17;
oPrint.Orientation = PrintOrientationEnum.kLandscapeOrientation;
oPrint.PrintRange = PrintRangeEnum.kPrintSheetRange;
I get a message saying I have to uncheck "Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts." in the Adobe PDF settings. Is there a way to do this programmatically?
When I export to PDF using:
TranslatorAddIn PDFAddin = (TranslatorAddIn)instance.ApplicationAddIns.get_It
TranslationContext oContext = instance.TransientObjects.CreateTranslationContext
oContext.Type = IOMechanismEnum.kFileBrowseIOMechanism;
NameValueMap oOptions = instance.TransientObjects.CreateNameValueMap();
DataMedium oData = instance.TransientObjects.CreateDataMedium();
oData.FileName = @"C:\Users\bsmith\Desktop\test.pdf";
PDFAddin.SaveCopyAs(oDoc, oContext, oOptions, oData);
This works but I cannot set the PDF page size. Again, is there a way to do this programmatically?
I am using Inventor 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, Windows 7, 64 bit.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I am able to remove the "Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts" error by simply configuring my printer so that this box is always unchecked.
Now when I SubmitPrint() I do not receive an error but the Save As... dialog box comes up which I would like to avoid.
When I try PrintToFile("filename") I get the following error:
"Acrobat could not open '[name of file]' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
To create an Adobe PDF document, go to the source application. Then print the document to Adobe PDF."
Again, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
PrintToFile() and SubmitPrint() work fine with CutePDF Writer, it's free as well.
Public Sub TrinityCutePDF() Set oApp = ThisApplication If oApp.ActiveDocument.DocumentType = kDrawingDocumentObject Then Dim oDrgDoc As DrawingDocument Set oDrgDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument Dim oDrgPrintMgr As DrawingPrintManager Set oDrgPrintMgr = oDrgDoc.PrintManager 'Printer name oDrgPrintMgr.Printer = "CutePDF Writer" 'Paper size, scale and orientation oDrgPrintMgr.AllColorsAsBlack = True oDrgPrintMgr.ColorMode = kPrintGrayScale oDrgPrintMgr.ScaleMode = kPrintBestFitScale oDrgPrintMgr.PaperSize = kPaperSize11x17 oDrgPrintMgr.PrintRange = kPrintAllSheets oDrgPrintMgr.Orientation = kLandscapeOrientation oApp.StatusBarText = "Creating PDF" oDrgPrintMgr.SubmitPrint End If End Sub
