PDF/EPS Hidden Line Options dialog box (Microsoft Windows)

This is a Pro only feature.

The PDF/EPS Hidden Options dialog box contains options for exporting 2D PDF and EPS Files.

Drawing size

The Drawing size section of the PDF/EPS Hidden Options dialog box contains size and scaling options for your model.

Full Scale (1:1)

Full Scale (1:1) option is used to set your output to a 1:1 (real world) scale.

Width/Height

The width and height fields are used to enter a custom page size for your file.

In Hidden-Line Output/In SketchUp

In Hidden-Line Output/In SketchUp fields are used to scale your model for export. The first measurement, labeled In Hidden-Line Output, is the measurement of the exported geometry. The second measurement, labeled In SketchUp, is the actual measurement of the object in real scale. For example, for a scale of 1/4" = 1', simply enter 1 inch In SketchUp equals 4 feet In Hidden Line Output.

Note: It is not possible to print a perspective image to scale. Ensure perspective is disabled and you are using one of the Standard Views in the Camera > Standard submenu, to enable this scale option.

Profile lines

The Profile Lines section of the PDF/EPS Hidden Options dialog box contains options for exporting profile lines.

Show profiles

The Show profiles option exports any lines that are displayed in profile as thicker lines in the 2D vector file. All lines are output normally, without profile thickness, when this option is disabled (regardless of the screen display).

Match screen display (auto width)

The Match screen display (auto width) automatically sets the width of profile lines by matching the output to the proportions you see in the SketchUp drawing area. This option is only available when Show profiles is checked.

Width

The Width fields are used to specify an exact width for the profile lines. This option is only available when 'Show Profiles' is checked and 'Match screen display (auto width)' is unchecked.

Section lines

The Section Lines section of the DWG/DXF Hidden Options dialog box contains options for exporting section lines.

Specify section line width

The Specify section line width option is used to adjust settings for Section Slice lines that are output.

Match screen display (auto width)

The Match screen display (auto width) automatically sets the width of section lines by matching the output to the proportions you see in the SketchUp drawing area. This option is only available when 'Specify section line width' is checked.

Width

The Width fields are used to specify an exact width for the section lines. This option is only available when 'Specify section line width' is checked and 'Match screen display (auto width)' is unchecked.

Extension Lines

The Extension Lines section of the PDF/EPS Hidden Options dialog box contains options for exporting extension lines.

Extend edges

Some CAD applications might have problems recognizing endpoints and intersections of lines with SketchUp extension lines. The Extend edges option is used to toggle the export of line extensions.

Match screen display (auto width)

The Match screen display (auto width) automatically sets the width of extension lines by matching the output to the proportions you see in the SketchUp drawing area. This option is only available when Extend edges is checked.

Width

The Width fields are used to specify an exact width for the extension lines. This option is only available when 'Extend edges' is checked and 'Match screen display (auto width)' is unchecked.

Always prompt for hidden line options

The Always prompt for hidden line options is used to automatically display the Hidden Line Options dialog box when you export a 2D PDF or EPS file.

Map Windows fonts to PDF base fonts

This option is used to select PDF fonts that correspond to the Windows fonts used in the model.

Defaults

The Defaults button is used to return the items in the Hidden Line Options dialog box to the default settings.
