Hi All,

I have a problem with the trace reference when exporting to pdf.

On the layout and on the pdf (in publisher set) trace reference is set to a certain colour and certain intensity (way below 100%) as you can see on ref1. But on exported pdf the trace looks very intense (ref2).

I cannot find a way to control the intensity of the trace reference so it prints with the same opacity as set on the layout.

Will greatly appreciate any help.

Create a new reference color, which at 100% is the intensity you want for the print.
