Layout and Layer... (new)
The software allows users to resign the layout and layers that are supposed to be exported. More...
To set the layout type of the supposed output, it could be: current layout, only model space layout, all layouts, all paper space layouts and user sets.
Hidden Line Removal
If there are 3D objects in your graph, and the conversion result is supposed to be hiddem line removal, you could tick this option to achieve the result. There are two kinds as Automatic mode and Enforcement mode. The automatic mode could descide whether to remove the hidden line according to the settings, while the enforcement mode would order the software to forcely remove the hidden line. (this mode is not recommended)
The designed lineweight parameter in the graphic file is allowed to be used, this option is repulsive to the use of print pen, so you can only choose one mode to output the linewidth at the same time.
Use Print Pen Sets
This option is the same as the Lineweight selection, which descides the linewidth of the output graph. It could set each color and linewidth of the corresponding color pen nubmers. More...
Size and Unit
If you tick “Use the layout Page Size if Possible” when you are making the choice of the output PDF size and unit , the software will automatically achieve and output a page layout size during the conversion of graphic space layout process.
You can set one of the width and height to 0 when checked the "Auto Zoom Extent" option, then the another one will be calculated depending on the proportion of the viewport(Zoom Extent).
Use the layout Page Size if Possible
This option is effective to graphic space layout. In graphic space layout, output page related information is contained and the software will output PDF files by automatically reading the pre-defined parameters.
Auto Zoom Extent
Its is to command the software to automatically calculate the maximum bounding retangle which is set as the output range. If the option is not ticked, the output is set as the viewport value of the latest saved file.
This parameter tells the process to maintain a ratio blank when calculating the maximum bounding retangle. When the scale is 1.0, the output is done as the maximun bounding retangle; when it is less than 1.0, the output content is correspondingly smaller; while if it is more than 1.0, the output content would go beyond the page layout range, which could lead to the result that some of the graphy gets outside of the paper, being invisible.
The blank margine of the page layout . Its unit is the same as the designed unit, which would not change while the ratio is altering.
PDF supports layer concept. This option is helpful in controlling the PDF graphic displayment by controlling the layer, which is as same as AutoCAD. Several files are merged into a layer object which would be saved on one layer.
PDF File Info
You could add information to the designed PDF file.
Watermark Setting and Usage
You could descide and set the user-designed watermark. The user-designed watermark will be added to the output PDF. Any words that you wish to add could be included, such as company, designer, date, file name, or a kind of copyright protection measure.
Output PDF file
If you designed a output file, a file name should be ordered, otherwise, a folder path should be appointed.
Users have to pay attention to that, in the PDF files, 1 inch is equal to 72 graphic unites.
