Fill appears in random objects when exporting as a pdf

Recommended Posts

Hello - I'm using AD for pattern making for sewing.  I create a pattern piece for, say, the front left of a shirt and then duplicate and flip it to create the front right pattern piece.  I then export the file as a pdf and use that with my projector to cut out the pattern pieces.

The trouble I am having is that sometimes, and only sometimes, a pattern piece will have a black fill applied to it, but only in the pdf version and only in one of the pattern pieces - the other pattern piece will be absolutely fine.  It looks fine in AD - no fill on any pattern piece.  And I can't figure out why this is happening.  Here's a screenshot showing what I mean.  Any suggestions?  I do need to see the inside of the pattern because it often has markings that I need to transfer to the fabric.

Hi @lovelyjubbly,

Are you able to upload one of the AD files where you are seeing this issue along with the exported pdf file so we can take a look at what might be happening here...
