PDF Generation with selectable text

#1 Post by Edgaras006 » 07 Jan 2022, 10:32

It would be really useful to have button to generate PDF with selectable text. It would easier for programmers to use just PDF browser and track which net is connected where without downloading free version of diptrace to open schematics. I make easily readable schematic, but when it extends to 10 A3 pages it becomes complex. Yes I could use more hierarchical diagrams, but then hierarchical symbols needs to have more customization options. All in all, selectable text in PDFs would be really useful feature.

Thank you.

The PDF text is selectable and searchable if TrueType fonts are used.

Thanks. That worked, except for BUS names.

The settings for Bus Names are here:
- main menu Objects - Drawing Properties - Font Type - True Type;
- the context menu of Bus Name - Font Type - True Type.
