In my TurboCAD version-19.2-Deluxe(build 54.2) I was successfully able to get Layers into a PDF using TurboCAD's "Save As..." Pdf Export, with the correct options ticked in the Setup page.
Only the Layers that actually had Objects in them in the drawing space(s) selected in the PDF Export Setup populated in the PDF.
Additionally, with the correct option ticked in the Export Setup page, Layers that are not "visible" at the time of Export still populate in the resultant PDF (for instance, in the attached example, I had the "TRUSSES" Layer set to not-visible when Exporting to PDF).
I don't use this "Save As..." PDF option; just experimenting with it here. I am finding that the print result replicates the settings in (Print) Page Setup (i.e.: Sheet size, Scale, Origin, etc.). It seems to be best practice to set the Paper Size in the PDF Export Setup to replicate the size in (Print) Page Setup.
Attached is an example, using the TurboCAD-supplied/installed, Kevin Mendenhall-created, "Smith Res." sample file.
Kind of cool. If only it had a "Black Only" option, it would be really cool for sharing and collaboration.
