i want to generate PDF Reports. It works fine, but the gauge chart doesn't show up correctly in the pdf. I also tried the bypass ghostscript option in the user setting, but this makes texts look ugly.
I am using PDF Creator with ghostscript. I assume that there has to be a setting in Ghostscript that has to be changed ?
Can somebody help ?
Can you confirm that you are using QlikView 9.0 SR2 please? I see bugs were fixed in SR2 relating to gauges printing on PDF (or more accurately print preview).

So I was about to place a post on the forum last night with some suggestions I received from support when I had a crazy idea. Let me test this out. I am using CutePDF on my machine with 9.0SR2. I create a report with a bunch of gauges, all looked fine in preview, all looked fine when i generated the PDF. When i reopened the PDF I saw the same grey image for each dial build slowly on my PDF.
So I decided to apply the advice I'd received from support - here is the advice in its entirety
Here are a few options you can try to improve PDF printing:
I checked #1 - "Bypass Postscript". In my instance, this flag was unchecked. So I checked it. Re ran my report. Preview - fine, print to PDF - fine & when I now reopen the PDF I see the gauges as expected.
I've included both resulting PDFs from my tests.
Do these options resolve your problems? Let me know
as i wrote in my initial post, i already tried this option. Indeed, it works for the gauge chart, but with the drawback, that all fonts turn ugly.
I thought mybe there is an option or parameter for ghostscript, so that the gauge chart is printed correctly. I tried on pdf Printer called PDF X-Change 3.0. This printer is able to priont the gauge chart correctly.
Have retested this and I am not seeing the same issues with the CutePDF driver that I am using. Can you forward a copy (scrambled?) of your report that shows the text inthe PDF?
i finally found some time to deal with the issue again.
Here are 2 Files with Test date.
1. With "bypass" option activatet. --> Ugly Fonts
2. Without Bypass -> Gauge and funnel not displayed correctly.
I did the pdf conversion with pdf creator and ghostscript 8.54.
I also tried some other PDF Converters, including the one from QlikView with the same result.
