PDF export vectors oops - Macromedia Freehand

What version of FH are you using? What platform? What compression settings in PDF Export? Does it happen with only one file or many different files? Are you using normal color fills or something pasted inside the vector curves? It might be more helpful if you posted the actual FH file so others could take a look at it and see how it's constructed.

    What version of FH are you using? What platform?

    What compression settings in PDF Export?

    Does it happen with only one file or many different files?

    Are you using normal color fills or something pasted inside the vector
    curves?

    It might be more helpful if you posted the actual FH file so others could
    take a look at it and see how it's constructed.

    It might be a flatness problem; it's especially common in artwork
    that's been imported from Adobe Illustrator. Check the paths in the
    Inspector, and if they show a flatness value other than 0 (zero),
    change it. If the overall dimensions of the curves are very large,
    and/or your printer or Distiller has very little memory to work with,
    a flatness of 0 may be too low -- but that's what I'd try first.

    Default PDF export vectors oops

    Hi there

    For some reason my vector curves distort when exported to PDF. I have
    uploaded before and after pics.

    [url]www.digitalpro.co.za/misc/PDF.gif[/url] - pdf

    I find this very strange.... I have tried different export settings with no
    luck :/

    Any insight into this would be appreciated..

    Thanks :)
