When I create my Solidworks drawing, I am including a block with some text in it. That block is based on a template used by other drafters in my company, and I copy-pasted the block into the two documents that I am currently working on. When I finished with the document, saved it, and then used the Save As to save as a .pdf. In both the .slddrw and the .pdf previews, the text appears to be normal; however, when it was physically printed out, some text blocks were bold and others were regular text, and I cannot seem to find a correlation between the two. For some reason, one block's text is completely fine, no issues, but the second one is bolded with no pattern whatsoever.
I have tried:
- checking to see if there is a second block behind/beneath the first that might be creating the illusion of a thicker text by sitting at a very small offset,
- re-typing all of the text in the text boxes (both the bolded and regular text),
- moving the block to see if the placement on the page is a factor,
- selecting the text, making it bold, then returning it to regular text.
- printing different paper sizes to see if something is wrong with the scale
None of these seem to have any effect on this random bolding, so I am wondering if it is a problem with Adobe's pdf program. However, if anyone can provide some insight as to why this might be happening, that would be very much appreciated.
