    Looking for a way to get searchable .pdf output, my customer is using Allegro 15.2 as their CAE package. Does anyone know how to get a searchable .pdf out of this???

    Make sure you have a font selected in File->Plot Setup->Plot Font; then print to file and use Adobe Distiller.

    This might work in 15.2, it's not working in 14.2 and will give 'ugly' results in 15.2 as Cadence is not willing to create a TrueType font out of their VectorFont used in ConceptHLD (or use a regular font in ConceptHDL). The available font options looks funny, especially if you have longer text or tables.

    Better than nothing - but not an final option.

    the 15.5 release has added the following fonts as searchable fonts for the pdf output.
    Font Support in Windows Plotting

    Plot files in Windows plotting now support multiple text formats. You can use one of the following fonts:

    Arial
    Helvetica
    Verdana
    Vector
    Trebuchet MS
    Default - This is the font that was used in Concept HDL before the support for multiple plots was available.

    The default Concept HDL font is Default.
    You can search for these fonts in .pdf plot files.
