    I've just downloaded and installed sp2, everything looking

    My first job after the installation was to send a solidworks drawing
    to a client in PDF format.

    SWX2004sp2 will not save as PDF!!!!!!!

    Is this yet another SWX improvement or is it just my installation?

    Could anyone verify this pls.

    check your Tools, Add-ins to make sure "save as PDF" is turned on.

    Same problem here,

    I fixed the problem by Downloading a trial version of Pushbutton PDF
    from the bluebeam website. Somehow, the installation of the full
    version of the software makes the lite version that comes with solidworks
    functional again. I was even able to un-install the trial software
    and Save As PDF kept working on SW2004 Sp2.

  7. same here, i get an "unknown error" when creating the file. and yea,
    the add-in is loaded.

    this sucks because i always use this for sending drawings to clients..
    i hope there's a 2.1 pretty damn quick, or else i'm going back to 1.0

  8. Might have been except that the PDF add-in was also in SP0. I think the
    drawing slow-downs were a direct result of SP1, and here's hoping that
    they've ben addressed.

    I am seeing drawings where tangent edges that would be the end or
    outside of a part are showing as tangent edges and not solid. Is
    anyone else getting this? My tangent edges are as font and I am in
    2004 SP2. I thought I saw this is SP1 as well but can't remember.

    SP2 has been pulled temporarily because the Save As pdf function is
    not working properly. Other than that, there are no other known
    problems. According to SW tech support, the slow performance when
    dragging drawing views in SP1 has been addressed.

  11. Other than,.... loft inconsistencies!? Which will NEVER be fixed!!!

    What a joke.

    Paul Salvador, Jan 7, 2004
  12. And btw, the print pdf does not work either.
    Performance is relatively fixed from what it was.
    I crashed fully, system hang, a few times last night, ah,...sweet.

    1 out of 10 of my files has a failure with lofts, sweeps and fills.
    2 files using lofts in sp1, now segment in sp2.

    Hey, give people some time to beta test the released sp some more and
    I'm sure there will be more problems...

    next release promises............................. marketing.

    Anybody besides me think that 25 minutes to install a service pack is
    a little too much??!! SP1 and SP2 both took forever to install, not
    download and install, just install. Hell, the initial installation
    only took about 10 minutes! Only ten more computers to go.
