a way to send 2d drawing by email

I am sure this cannot be to hard. I just want to email a 2d drawing I did in turbo can version 11.2 to an architect.
If I do a "TurboCad for windows JPG" it is just not clear, very blurry with no detail.
If I do a "PDf Adobe Portable Document"  the Font gets messed up and it creates 2 pages with the same drawing on it.
The architech sends me PDf's and they are beautiful.
Please help me look professional .

Thanks in advance you guys have really helped me in the past.

If it's a line drawing use GIF. Much smaller and very clear.

Are you using the Pro version? Lesser versions may not have it. They are listed alphabetically after the TurgoCAD formats.

I believe V11.2 doesn't have the GIF format. That was added in V12 or V14.



The PDF filter in V11 was not the greatest; from what I see, the "Setup" page in the "Save As" dialog can't be accessed. You're better off downloading a free PDF program from the internet and Print to that PDF program.

Download and install a (free) copy of PrimoPDF from http://www.primopdf.com/
You end up with a printer called PrimoPDF which you print to exactly as if it was a real printer. You don't get a printed page; you get a PDF instead.

I use PD995 since V9.  It is free and does a great job with TC files.  The adds on the free version are a pain but tolerable.  There are several other free PDF printers out there and several have been mentioned frequently on the forum.  I think a PDF printer is a more reliable way to go than in program conversion.

That's why I switched to PrimoPDF. No more adds and you also get a useful facility to append the PDF to an existing one.
