    Default AutoCAD 2013 - DWG to PDF

    I am having an issue when I use dwg to pdf option. When I preview it it looks perfect. When I view the pdf its not what was previewed. I created mark/schedule boxes and detail bubbles with solid had patterns so I don't have to trim anything that is behind it. This has worked on previous versions of CAD. Anyone please help????? THANK YOU!!!!!

    Are you talking about the lines across the "FJ1" boxes?

    what color the solid hatch? suggest using TrueColor 255,255,255

    and of course, verify Draworder so all the linework is below

    @jaberwork and cadtag - Yes the lines across fj1. It comes out correct when I preview it before creating the pdf and when I print them to my printer.

    In fact, pdf sometiome is unstable, my suggestion is that in order to be sure nothing gonna be wrong, you can convert the pdf to word document or other stable formats, that's my way to solve the problem.
