Yes, "Embed fonts" is checked.
That resolved some issues where the PDF itself opened differently on different machines, but the PDFs themselves are coming out wrong. The way the actual .slddrw renders on the server is sometimes different than how it looks on the workstations, and it gets PDF'd that way. Sometimes the PDF just doesn't match what we see in solidworks, like a detail view that is blank, or not cropped correctly.
It would be great to get all of these issues resolved and have them come out right every time, but the first step is to be able to look at them and find out what the mistakes are, and when it's doing them.
I tried changing from a "convert" type task to a "print" type task with the printer set to "Adobe PDF", but then it forces the user to name and choose a save location. It does open the PDFs after saving, though. At that point, it's almost a totally manual process and there's not much point in having the task at all.
I am having similar issues, but only with a font sourced from the internet, downloaded to my machine.
I would think that the checkbox should fix any issues, but I get no difference.
