Export to pdf gives a bad result at certain scales for arc shaped polygons. Idem with PDF Creator, export to png, using arcpy, ...

See images below: purple arc is properly exported at 1:40.000, but not at 1:20.000

Features are stored in arcsde geodatabases.

Has anyone an idea what the problem is?

If the arcsde polygon feature class is saved as a shapefile, the shp polygon is properly exported to pdf, but... no, I won't save all feature classes to shapefile as a workaround.

Thx, Guido

Hi Rebecca, I thought about check/repair geometry too, but that doesn't work for arcsde feature classes..

Well that was one reason, why I suggested creating a copy in the same sde gdb. The Check\Repair is automatically done while loading data in an sde gdb. So that doesn't seem to be the cause of this issue.

Thx, I'll leave it for now. I hope rebuilding my mxd from scratch will fix this issue.
