Printing JPEG, GIF or BMP image from ProE Drawing on a PDF


New member
We output pdfs to another document control mechanism and there are times when we want an image to print on the pdf. If you simply print the pdf from ProE the image will not appear.

Do the following:

1. Place your image JPEG, GIF, TIFF... on a drawing in ProE.

2. Set your default printer to Adobe Distiller from Start > Settings > Printers

3. Print the drawing from ProE making sure to set paper size, view...

4. Open the pdf and see the image.
