Post subject:  Schematic print in PDF - searching for RefDes

Hello,

How can I print a schematic or layout as PDF, so I can search for RefDes?

Unfortunately it prints always as picture and this is really annoying.

I think you need to use a TrueType font to get this to work. I use the Consolas font in schematics. I tried searching a PDF of one of my schematics and it does find the reference designators (they are highlighted with a gray rectangle).

Although it's good practice to use the Vector font for PCB Layouts, it's not necessary for schematics.
