AutoCAD PDF converting problem
Problem: Sometimes Gradient of the hatch is not showing in the PDF. Or any part of the drawing is missing in the PDF.
Solution: Go in the layer command, and move objects in the proper layer. If some object or hatch or gradient is moved in the ‘Defpoints’ layer, it will not show in the PDF. Because the printing system is off by default in the Defpoints layer.
It’s Done here. I hope I have added some value in your AutoCAD knowledge.
