And you modify the Vector or Raster settings to be higher than the default values of DWG to PDF.pc3 (Vector – 600 DPI and Raster – 400 DPI):
If you have them any higher than the default values, this will occur, for example:
If this specific PC3 is used and modified, this behavior occurs.
There are three methods of correcting this behavior
1. Set the DWG to PDF.pc3 back to the 600/400 and use those settings
2. Use the AutoCAD PDF (General Documentation).pc3
3. Upgrade to 2024, as the behavior and changes in 2024 this issue no longer occurs.
