Hello Revit City,

I am using Revit 2017 in an ongoing effort to convert my firm's old AutoCAD titleblocks into functional Revit titleblocks rather than just dwg backgrounds. I'm stuck on the part of the logo block that has the company name written as an AutoCAD hatch rather than actual text (don't ask me why because I don't know). I can pull this into Revit, explode it, convert to a filled region, and achieve the same end result. However, when testing the final prints in PDF, most of the letters are "missing" some of the black coloring in the fill pattern. This does not appear in Revit, so my best guess is that it has something to do with the print driver I am using. I'm currently using Bluebeam PDF to print out of Revit, and I have tested this with all various DPI settings and vector/raster with the same end result every time. I've attached a screenshot to clarify the issue.

I realize that the obvious solution here is to replace this goofiness with plain text, but unfortunately that is not an option because the firm wants all drawings to look the same regardless of origin (AutoCAD vs. Revit) and there is no font that I can find that exactly matches this hatch they have created (yes, I've used online font matching software with no good results).

Has anyone had similar experiences with filled regions in PDF printing and hopefully have some solutions/advice?

Thanks in advance,

Jeremy

Your problem is the exploded hatch is made up of straight line segments instead of curves.
