V7 print issue

Mon Dec 04, 2017 6:26 pm

I have a print AutoCAD issue: when I use V7 PDF-Xchange Standart printer some lines are missing and appears artifacts that are not on the original drawing. When I use old V6 driver, everything is correct (see attachments).

If you look at the Document Properties in the PDF-XChange Editor I think the PDF-Producer should say GDI or XPS in part fot eh description. Which one does yours say?

The correct pdf says "PDF Producer: PDF-XChange Printer V6 (6.0 build 321) [Windows 10 Professional x64 (Build 16299)]"
The incorrect one says "PDF Producer: PDF-XChange Standard (7.0 build 323) [GDI] [Windows 10 Professional x64 (Build 16299)]"

Yes, that's the answer!
The driver mode V7 is on Auto(DPI) by default. If I switch the V7 to XPS driver mode, everything works fine again.

Thanks RMan

If you use lines merge or transparency in your AutoCAD drawings XPS is not a good choice because AutoCAD itself will rasterize the Output so you end up with an image based PDF basically. Typically the file size is larger and when you zoom in close the diagonal lines and such are not as clean looking.

The XPS problem is AutoCAD's fault and it does it to any XPS based driver.

If you would like to do an etransmit of the dwg and email it over to me at support@cadzation.com I'm already working with their programming team on some other AutoCAD drawings. We specialize in AutoCAD to PDF and DWF conversion and use Tracker's products in our products.
