export quality very poor

Hi Does anybody know of the best export options to get a decent quality published image?


I am trying to create an installation manual in microsoft word using the 'technical line drawing' style within publisher. When I export the snapshots the quality is no where near good enough, I have tried all formats for publishing images and also the publish to word option. The results i am seeing are too pixelated to show the detail that we require.


I think one of the main issues is the lighweights being too thick and also that they scale when the image is scaled, I have tried creating a new style with reduced lineweights but you can not set the value below 1 (which is too thick)


Does anyone know of a way to get a decent quality image out of publisher? or is this not possible?

You can use "Publish to Vector" with enhanced Vector Output for better export quality.

Hi, Yes the qualaty is very poor. The SVG's are terible and only one line. Compare this with 3D via is is very bad.
Als camera views for seting up animations are not good.
