Print schematic as PDF and be able to select text


#1

Hello,

I use latest KiCAD 4.0.7 and I noticed that PLOT as PDF (actually as any format) will just generate images.
That is, not vectorial as expected so I cannot search in that PDF for some texts like designators, net names, etc.

How can I generate such a PDF?
I even tried to print as PDF with two virtual printers, the same, result are images that cannot be searched.

In OrCAD, Altium this is possible by default.

Thank you,

This will possibly change in v6. Now it’s not possible.
