pdf file result different from print preview

Hi All,

Need help here. Using PB12.5.

I have a composite datawindow and it looks perfect at print preview screen, but when I save it as PDF, it will looks different, example, the border or line are missing or the box display is different from screen. (Screenshots below for your reference)

I have set these and set the paper size to A4.

dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Export.PDF.Method = Distill!

dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Printer =  'Sybase DataWindow PS'

dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Export.PDF.Distill.CustomPostScript="Yes"

composite datawindow result at screen:

pdf result:

Please advise.

Thank you.


Best Regards,

Yow

    Hi Yow.

    I had this problem in the past and can solve by changing the rectangles or text borders by lines.

    Regards,

    Luiz

    Hi Yow;

      Hi Yow;

      1)   Can you try GS v9.18 as I believe that they just updated the fonts in the latest version to improve PDF rendering?

      2) Can you also try commenting out the following (alternative to #1 if it does not help) ...

      // dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Printer =  'Sybase DataWindow PS'

      // dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Export.PDF.Distill.CustomPostScript="Yes"

      Regards ... Chris
