Electrical Schematic PDF Print Text off by 3 Characters


The PDF print output of an electrical schematic changes all of the text (letters and numbers) inputs and shifts them by 3 characters.

Hi @o_oweson ,


What device did you use to export the PDF. The oficially supported driver is called Print to File(PDF) if you use anything else you might not get good output.


This is the first time I've seen something like this so the more info you can provide , the sooner we can get to the bottom of this.

@jorge_garcia2 I was using Adobe PDF, which my setup had defaulted to, changing the setting to Print to File did solve the issue, and gave me a correct output, thank you!


Nonetheless a very bizarre bug.
