PDF Settings

ProSheets uses the Revit engine and a custom instance of PDF24 printer (diroots.prosheets printer) to export to PDF. ProSheets supports all Revit to PDF options plus some additional handy features.

Supported settings:

  • All PDF Revit settings
    • Paper Size: set the paper size in the “Create” tab.
    • Paper Placement: choose to locate the print in the “Center” or assign an X and Y value to the “Offset from Corner”.
    • Zoom: choose the zoom for printing by selecting “Fit to page” or by setting a % value for “Zoom”.
    • Printer: choose the printer you want, either the “PDF24” used as standard by ProSheets or “Revit Native” (premium feature).
    • Orientation: set the orientation in the “Create” tab.
    • Hidden Line Views: use the radio button to remove lines using “Vector processing” or “Raster processing”.
    • Options: use the checkbox to select some of the general settings you want.
    • File: choose between printing each sheet/view separately or combining them into a single file. For the option to combine into a single file, set this as well:
      • Custom File Name
      • Order Sheets and Views

    Note: the additional settings work only if the ‘Keep jumped to section’ checkbox is unchecked.
