Viewing Draw Layers In Acrobat 8.0

Postby BSLOAN » Sat Apr 12, 2008 1:00 am

Good Morning,

I can not create a file in Draw (2.4), use various layers, export/print to PDF then have layer "control" in Acrobat 8. Has anyone been successful in doing this yet?

Thanks very much for your input,

Hi and welcome to the community!

Obviously, so far nobody did really find an answer to your question. :(

As I am not a PDF expert, I may not be able to help you much. I will try nevertheless. ;)

I suspect that the layers in draw are not mapped to the PDF layers. I am not sure if layers in PDF might be proprietary and thus not be according to the PDF standards.

However, there is issue #81713 that applies to exactly this problem. Unfortunately, no milestone is defined yet, so it might still take some time until this will be fixed!
What you can do is to vote for the issue in order to emphasize on its importance.

BTW, also issue #71274 is connected to this problem...
