Anybody knows how to create searchable PDF for Bottom side mirrored view.(Readable)
Hello, Hopefully you've been able to fix this, but if not, here's what I do to get searchable bottom-side mirrored/readable text in .PDF. I use Acrobat 7.x. In Allegro, I go to the plot setup using file->plot set-up. I check the mirrored box. In the Windows tab, ensure that the non-vectorized text box is checked. Then file->plot and selecting my .PDF writer yeilds right-reading searchable .PDFs. Bill
Hi, That is a good method of working around the problem. However it seems there is an opportunity for an Allegro enhancement here. If "Create Detail" retained text as text in the detail instead of line segments, it would be easy to create mirrored view of the bottom side that would produce a pdf with searchable text. Do other users see value in this enhancement request? I would be surprised if this has not already been requested thru an SR. Randy
Hi Randy, The method Bill describes above certainly works quite well. I've not as yet seen the specfic enhancement request you mention above. I would encourage you to contact Cadence Support so we can either add your company to an existing enhancement request PCR, or file a new PCR as needed. Thanks, Jerry
For top side is fine.But for Bottom side I want a PDF file with mirror image.If I give mirror it is coming as non searchable.Thats the problem.
