PDF in Photoshop

Post by JLG » Fri Jan 07, 2011 1:45 pm

Saving charts as PDF files causes no problems, but if I import those files into Photoshop they appear with a background of grey and white squares. Importing other PDF files into Photoshop doesn't have this problem.
Is there any way to create TreeDraw PDF files with a plain background?

Hi,

I have not seen this problem; our exported PDFs seem OK when we copy them to paint software. Would it not be simpler to just copy from TreeDraw and paste into PhotoShop anyway?

Copying and pasting direct into Photoshop produces the same problem that many users have encountered when pasting into Word - the right side and the bottom of the charts are missing, and the recommended solution of including "white boxes" is a real fiddle when there are many charts to handle and the optimum size of the "white box" can only be determined by trial and error.

Hi,

The problem of copy/metafile cropping the right/bottom elements was fixed in TreeDraw V4.
