Setting PDF Export Options

Set the export options when you export SOLIDWORKS documents as PDF files.

To set the PDF export options:

  1. Select from the following options:
    Option Description
    Export PDF in color  
    Embed fonts The font definitions become part of the document, which increases file size but guarantees that the fonts are as defined in the original document.
    High Quality For drawings only. Shaded views specified in the drawing as draft quality are printed in high quality.
    Use specified printer line weights (Files, Print, Line Weights) When cleared, the default printer line weights are used.
  2. Click OK.
  3. Print header/footer.
    When you create a task, you click Options in the task properties dialog box to change the options for that task only. To change the default option values, click View > Options > PDF .
