Flatten PDF


Availability: Cubit version 10 and above

Cubit 10 has improved PDF rendering in the viewport with the Flatten PDF feature. This option allows a PDF plan to be loaded as a hybrid of Raster and Vector PDFs.

Flatten PDF allows for the more accurate rendering of a Raster Plan while also supporting the Takeoff features of a Vector Plan. The Flatten PDF feature can be easily turned ON or OFF on the plans.
