Dwg to Pdf.pc3 won't print layers
« on: January 18, 2017, 09:15:37 am »
I am having trouble printing to a .pdf that has layer information also.

I have gone into the Printer properties and made sure that 'Include Layer Information' is selected. yet it still won't print the Layers so that while in the .pdf, I can control layer visibility.

I used to have this ability and am can't figure out what has changed.
I AM using the one from AutoCAD installation an the date of the Dwg to PDF.pc3, (2008),  file hasn't changed since install. So, that tells me that I have not overwritten the original.

I have obviously changed 'Something',  but can't figure out what it might be.

I have included a screen capture of the 'Custom Properties' box, the Sample CAD file and the resulting .Pdf file.

I am probably overthinking this. - Do any of you have any ideas what I am missing.

Well, after opening the .pdf in a different machine, the layer control is there.

Bottom line, it is a problem with Acrobat settings on Machine #1.
