Printing to PDF

I am having difficulty printing my QTO to PDF using any form of virtual PDF printer (CutePDF or AdobePDF) printers do not work correctly.


After performing the take off, I am looking to print certain worksheets to PDF however this operation takes a VERY long time, and the PDF only generates 1 out of 10 times. Even on the 1 PDF which is created the takeoff layers are 100% opaque and black out the information on the plan, and the legend does not seem to show correctly. I have the colour icons, but no quantity information.


I am trying to print to PDF on Arch C,D, or E size paper (Native for the drawing PDF I have been working on).


Another issue is the file size, when QTO does create a PDF it is a MASSIVE file (16+mb)


Any ideas or suggestions on ways of printing certain worksheets to PDF?


Thanks in Advance.
