Question

One of our customers is asking us to generate searchable PDFs from Allegro v17.2 for their assembly drawings.  We were able to output this in v16.6 but the PDF generated from v17.2 is no longer searchable.  Could you share instructions on how to do this in v17.2?

 

Solution

Install the latest hotfix for version 17.2 and you should be able to create searchable PDF output using the Export > PDF menu.
