Strokes get converted to curves AD-> PDF


Recommended Posts

I'm exporting AD document to PDF. I need to be able to preserve the strokes editable- however, when opened in Illustrator, the strokes have been converted to fills? See attached screenshots The same problen when exporting to SVG- the strokes get converted.

EDIT: I found solution to this in case someone else runs into this problem: when the stroke is set to other than 'Center', it will fill the stroke when exporting.

Was it the stroke alignment that was causing the problem? ears.gif

So centre lined it see's it as a stroke, inner or outer it interprets it as a fill.

Ive tried every PDF export including Advanced features checked and all interpret an inner and outer stroke as a fill, so it effectively expands the stroke.
