Question Using the PDF converter

I have been having difficulty in obtaining good quality PDF files from the ME10 conversion system. The drawing file is made up from DWG imported information & ME 10 created information. When using the PDF conversion application some of the line wieghts, not all, are too feint to be of any use. Converting the file to DWG or DXF & using another PDF conversion system has the same or similar effect. Changing the line weights before printing with the PDF converter has an adverse effect in making the line weights too bold.
Has anyone any ideas on a fix for this problem.

Re: Using the PDF converter

This sounds like pen transformations might would help here - see PLOT_TRANSFORMATION

Re: Using the PDF converter

When you say "PDF converter" are you refering to printing or plotting to PDF? If so then as Michael indicated the key is the pen transformations which determine how the lines you see on the screen are converted to lines in the plot. Are you using one of the standard pen transformations in Drafting/ME10?

Re: Using the PDF converter

Hi, I have never tried cutePDF before. And I am testing with another PDF converter these days. I want to look for a fine PDF to image conversion SDK whose way of processing is simple and fast to help me with the related conversion work. It will be better if it is totally manual and can be customized by users according to our own favors. Do you have any ideas about it? Or any good suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Best Regards,

Next Tomorrow is Another Day.
