    Red Text When Exporting Solidworks Drawings

    Wesley Campbell



      Whenever I save a drawing from Solidworks as a PDF all of the text is red. This problem only happens when I use the template I have used for all of my drawings, if I create a new drawing from a blank sheet the problem does not occur. The problem also does not occur when I print the file or save it as a JPEG.


      In the drawing window the text appears black and if I use the line format toolbar and change the colour of a dimension to anything but black it will override the red.


      Attached is a screen shot of my Solidworks drawing in Solidworks and a copy of the PDF file that is produced, a JPEG and the original drawing.


      To Fix the problem I have tried resetting Solidworks user settings by renaming my regedit Solidworks folder and that did not fix it.


      I am using Solidworks 2012 on windows XP.
