I have trouble trying to import a PDF containing text (and vector graphics) created by Layout into some graphics processing packages.
When I create a PDF using Layout that includes text and try to import it into CorelDraw it fails with a “File is corrupt” message. Trying to import the same PDF into Inkscape, it will accept the graphics but omits the text. I have another package Engravelab (and fairly expensive laser processing application) that suffers the same fate of omitting the text.
Non text is processed as expected.
Is there any user out there of Layout and some other package that can process a PDF out of Layout… for example Photoshop or something that they could see if it processes text.
I haven’t attached any SKP/Layout files as any simple draw of a box with any text (eg. type “TEST”) fails for me.
I have approached SU Technical support but they claim it is the other 3 programs that have bugs and not Layout. I’d be interested if this happens to any other programs so I may refer back to SU Support.
I had posed this question before but that was before I had a workaround. The workaround is… rather than using Layout to create the PDF, I print to any PDF writer. I am not necessarily seeking a solution here but a “survey” to see if any other “Graphics” type products are affected
I am just interested how many other applications suffer this same fate.
I am using CorelDraw 8 which is the latest and I would assume that it would have all the latest fonts etc… to accept valid PDF files. PDFs created directly from Layout are legible by all the dedicated PDF readers I have tried.
