I have reported this so many times and each time I see the same trouble.
Things that looks OK in Top view isn’t always the same in Layout.
Things that looks OK in Layout isn’t always the same in the exported to a PDF:
Rhino to the left, Acrobat to the right:
And to right this we have to spend a lot of time moving things out of the plane they are drawn on.
AND draworder is not respecting fully a block that has BringToFront. (I have to BlockEdit and fiddle with the objects in there too)
Just to make clear:
WYSIWYG all over the views and to the PDF is PARAMOUNT. As long as we see what we get we will adapt. This is so much more important than the logic behind any draworder stacking theory. But obviously having a user friendly logic behind this is important too.
So if a block has an internal draw order and I move the block UP in the hiearchy OR if I edit a block and use SendToBack, I expect the entire block to be handled as one element within the file draw order.
But first of all PLEASE work with us to get at least the Layout Detail to draw the same order as the top view AND have the output use the same draworder as the Layout.
I sorry but I can’t afford spending time reporting this and sending files unless I have a dialog with you guys, It’s timeconsuming enough trying to fix and QC the output on deadlines as it is.
