Hi

I need to convert a idw drawing to PDF and JPG, when save to PDF there are no problems

but when I do it for JPG it seem to be a screen dump and not similar to the PDF I only need the drawing exact as the PDF. Is there a way for this.

 

Regard

Henrik

I use PDFCreator as my pdf-printer (previously found Inventor's own pdf-creation tools less than fantastic so have just stuck with a pdf-printer) - it has the ability to "print" to an image format as well as pdf, so it will create a jpg exactly the same as the pdf printout.  Might be worth giving it a try?

dumb question - why do you mark your own answer as the solution?  it's not, so why do it?  (kinda seems like a bug/exploit in the forum software if you're able to mark your own answer as a solution)

 

whether it's right of wrong the jpg/image output has always been a snapshot of the screen and not linked to the print-result.  It includes the background colour plus the sheet-colour in idw environment and the xyz triad in modelling environment.  Can just use an image-editing tool to crop the desired portion of the image if it's unsuitable.
