    DxPDF colors not matching screen colors.

      When I print colour with a back background it should look the same as the normal screen.

      What I am seeing is that all the colours are changed to green. Do you have to map colours to have the same defaults in DxPDF.


      I have mapped some automatic colours to be different then the defaults.

      It is primarily the nets. I have set the defaults to be red and they show up as green in the PDF.


      The other thing I have noticed is that the colours come out different when I print color on black compared to color on white.


      How can I configure the DxPDF to output the same colours as the normal screen?  Thanks.

          The “Color on Black” selection of the drop down list in the Export | PDF works and you get a black background.

          To keep the colors of your fonts and a white background when exporting to PDF you must hand edit the dxpdf.ini file in your project directory so that Color -1 or Color 4 is printed on the Color line.
