 PDF - Export Detail Lost

Hi guys,
I have a question regarding .PDF export. I find that i get very hit and miss results when exporting. I ALWAYS use the same settings: Landscape, 600 Resolution, A3 or A4, Colorized.

I find that sometimes i get a great looking, clean .PDF. And other times i get arrow heads missing, text not filled in etc.

I will attach images to show good vs bad and if anyone could offer some insight as to why i'm getting mixed results by using the same settings that would be great.

Hi,Mattyvdv, thank you for your feedback, missing arrow is one bug in 1800 (2014)version, which has been fixed in 2014 SP version. You can download 1810 beta to have a try.

Thanks William.
Im assuming a big fix is not available for the version i have? Is the only way to solve this issue to upgrade to the latest ZW?

Cheers,

I think the another way I use very often is "print to pdf".
