Encountered same problem trying to convert from dxf to pdf. Has this been resolved?
OS: Ubuntu 8.04
Drawing type: Architectural (sheet size Arch C - 18" x 24")
Paper size selected in Current Drawing Preferences:
(a) Custom (457.2 mm x 609.6 mm) - PDF blank
(b) Custom (18 x 24 ) - PDF blank
(c) B2 (from the list) - PDF perfect
So I will print on B2 size sheet and trim it to 18" x 24".
However, why does B2 (19.7" x 27.8"), a larger size than Arch C, output correct PDF, whereas, for the smaller sheet (Arch C) there is a blank output?
Seems like blank PDF may have nothing to do with large sheet size or small RAM, but with the paper format (whether it is in the supported list). This is based on my limited experience with printing-to-PDF issue.
