Creating a pdf

290 Views, 2 Replies

For shop use, we save our Inventor drawings in pdf format.

Today, I got a message I've never seen before, and hoping someone here knows how to correct the problem.

As normal, went to export as a pdf, but received a warning box saying?

One or more drawing views are currently in raster state. Raster views

differ from final views in quality and may produse visually different



I've never seen this before, and no idea what to do to correct it. When I go ahead and create the pdf, there is

definately a problem with my end view.


When I double click on the end view, the raster only box is checked, but all other options are greyed out.

I remove the check mark, and click ok, but when I double click the end view again, the box is checked again.


I've tried deleting the view and putting it back in, but the raster box is still checked.




Thanks so much for your help.

Hi, sps_cad_guy.

How about create PDF files with the help of some PDF creators which is totally manual and can be customized by users according to our own favors? As for me, I prefer to deal with the related PDF creating projects using some muanual PDF creating toolkits whose way of processing is simple and fast to helpme. Do you have any good recommendation? Thanks in advance.
