You must use Proportional- or Fixed-Font, not Vectorfont for Text.
Do not set Always Vectorfont -> Options -> User interface ....

I'm pretty sure pdf format allows metadata. I have seen scanned
documents searchable. Why not use it for vector fonts?

To solve this issue for vector fonts texts, Eagle should always add
a unvisible fixed font text over the vector font text. This is the way how
PDF-OCR is doing it for bitmaps.

It's not Vectorfont.
It happen with cadsoft before - some 3-rd party libraries for MAC
compiler was not enabled or included.
Please fix.

Hi Serge,

Make sure you are using the Print to file(PDF) printer and not some
other PDF printer driver on your system. Additionally double check your
fonts like Alfred mentioned.

Jorge Garcia

Hi Jorge,

Just checked it again - no vector font, printing to File (PDF) from the
print menu of Eagle.
PDF file is created, looks good and - not searchable.
Checked it in different pdf viewers (including acrobat reader) and on
different computers with different operation systems.
My co-workers are crying when they can't search the schematic.
To make them happy i using a windows computer to generate the pdf file
of the schematic.
I hope you can fix it for next stable revision.

Let me know if you need some additional information

Kind Regards!
Serge

Sorry you are right! It came in after the change of our 3rd party libs in V7.3.
It's fixed for next beta, but not sure if it will come in before V7.4.0.

Walter Spermann

Hello Walter and Cadsoft team!

When you planing to restore this functionality in MAC version?
It's kind of wierd to use a windows computer to generate pdf of the
schematic when you working on MAC.

My current version is 7.4

Best Regards!
Serge

Hi Serge,

Try v7.4.2, our latest beta the fix was implemented in that beta and
will be in V7.5.0 once it is released.

You can download it from www.cadsoftusa.com > Downloads > Betatest.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
