PDF reDirect don't convert some characters form AutoCAD (I use version 2.1.10) eg.: superscript for m2, m3 etc.

Hi there,

   Most likely the problem is a font conversion issue. The default setting usually works well, but there are a few exceptions, particularly with complex unicode fonts. The font options are only available through the "Pro" version, but if you use PDF reDirect, you can make the changes through the Printer Properties dialogas follows:
  1. Open the Printer folder (Start Menu >> Settings >> Printers)
  2. Right-click on the PDF reDirect printer and select "Properties"
  3. Select the "General" tab
  4. Click on the "Advanced Preferences..." button
  5. Click the "Advanced" button
  6. Select "Postscript Options"
  7. Change "TrueType Font Download Option" from "Outline" to "Automatic" and see if that makes a difference.

   If that does not help, let me know. There might be one more thing we can try to do.
