    Question Problem with making PDF

    Hello PS Crew,

    I started updating my portfolio, and got problem when exporting to PDF. PS doesn't want to export (a normal gray) rectangle. He just doesn't exist on PDF. Everything else is fine. I don't see that there is any problem with my file, it's not too big, and PDF size is 6.655 KB.

    Problem with making PDF-image_size-jpg


    Any ideas? (I read somewhere that i should rasterize the rectangle layer, but i don't want that, i need it as a rectangle)

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hi and Welcome to PSG

    How did you make the rectangle, can you upload the PSG here?
    Rasterizing it won't effect the shape it will still be a rectangle!

    Yes, sorry, you are right. But some things i don't want to rasterize.

    Here is the file, he can make PDF only with letters, not rectangles...

    Re: Problem with making PDF

    OK here's one way round it make a copy of the rectangle shapes and turn off the originals and then rasterize the copies

    Example2.pdf

    P.S. I not sure why your document is not saving the rectangles, when I create a PSD with 2 rectangle shapes it saves them fine as a PDF without rasterizing the layers!

    Re: Problem with making PDF

    OK I think I figured it out you appear to have paths on your shapes, if I select this tool and delete the path on the first shape the shape then print fine

    Example8.pdf

    How did you create the shapes?

    Re: Problem with making PDF

    No you shouldn't not sure how the paths got there, just try a new document and draw a shape with the rectangle tool and see if it saves as PDF ok

    The Rectangle Tool always creates a path even if it's set to shape.

    Try using the Rectangular Marquis Tool and filling with the appropriate color.
