CGM to PDF Conversion not working

Postby josiah hulsey » 15 Jul 2014, 14:58


I am a geologist that makes lots of cross sections and maps. I have a old printer at my office and I primarily use ABViewer 9 as a a conduit for printing since my printer will not recognize my mapping software. In order to print I have to have my file in the CGM format. However, I would like to save this CGM file into a adobe pdf so I can email it to clients as well. Whenever I try to do this, ABViewer 9 completely messes up the pdf (see attachment). I dont think I am doing anything wrong, but please let me know if I am.

Thank you
