Some important things to know about this release:
This release addresses several 2D PDF, Print Preview, and Printing issues.
The old mechanism that let you choose your PDF driver has been reintroduced in System Options > Drawings > PDF.
The PDF method you choose affects all of the following: Printing, 2D PDF publishing, and Print Preview
Most important options in this release
System Options > Drawings > PDF
If you enable the Use Built-In PDF Writer option, then Printing, Print Preview, and 2D PDF publishing will use the same mechanisms introduced in Alibre Design 2019. For some people, especially international customers, this causes some significant issues. As a result, this option is now defaulted to Unchecked.
If you instead choose a PDF writer by Unchecking the Use Built-In PDF Writer option and selecting a 3rd Party PDF writer from the list, then Printing, Print Preview, and 2D PDF publishing will use the older mechanisms that are well-established, high quality, and without the issues of the Built-In PDF writer. For this reason this option is now the default.
