I am looking to share a file with a customer but would like to send as a .pdf so they can turn the layers on and off. I do this all the time with AutoCad but when I export the Chief file as a .dwg then go to create a .pdf, the layer are created in the .pdf but they do not show on the screen. The layer properties are checked to show but the page is blank. Is this a problem with the .dwg export in Chief?

Others may have better answer- I just tried- export current view to dwg- opened in TurboCad. Layers are there and work.

I tried my pdf printer- bluebeam standard and get no layers. But then checking documentation BlueBeam does layers but does not appear to support importing layers them. So what's going on with your pdf creation I can't say.

 

One thing is Cheif exports black lines. If I open an exported file in Intellicad I don't see anything- until I "select all" and change line colors. A possibility.
