I have a draft with different layers in Solid Edge and want to export these draft as a PDF format with all the layers in it. because in the Acrobat reader, I want to have the possibility that i can hide or unhiden the layers.
this is not possible in Solid Edge, have anyone expirience with a work around or a free viewer that shows the layers?
because, even the SE viewer don't show the layers.
any suggestions is welcome.
A workaround, though it's not great, is to export as a DXF, then from AutoCAD, DraftSight or similar, export a PDF including the layers.
Another PDF viewer isn't going to help as the layers aren't there to view, not sure about other SE draft file viewers.
Ask and ye shal be enhanced.
Your recent call to the Global Technical Access Center, Incident Report (IR)Number 7534090 opened on 14-OCT-2015, has been researched by our GTACsoftware engineers. They have determined that this issue should be reviewed for possible enhancement to the current software functionality.
BRILLIANT!.....thanks for the update @JasonTitcomb
TBH, I hadn't even realised it didn't export them....further, it would be good if there was also an option in that enhancement, to flatten the layer structure, incase of sensitive layer names, that might give away too much info.
