How to manage PDF styles

Post by jgold723 » 10 Jan 2019, 11:38

I'm trying to create a new PDF output style. I've tried going to Export As > PDF, clicking "Options" selecting "New PDF Output Style", making my selections and clicking on "Capture Settings"

The new style is saved, but the settings always revert to some other settings.

What am I doing wrong?

I usually create new output styles via the Edit menu. That seems to always work fine for me.

Hi,

Whenever you are creating the style from the output dialog's (print/pdf/EPS) first select the required settings and then select new output style to retain the selected settings. Or As mike suggested create from the edit menu and use it in the print/pdf/eps dialogs.

Thanks
