Plotting

I've been having problems recently with plotting. It has happened while plotting to an OCE plotter and also creating a .PDF. When I plot and do a preview, everything looks great. But when it plots or creates a .PDF, objects appear missing like they were frozen.

What are these missing objects?

which PDF driver are you using?

I've had lines missing, blocks missing, the outline of our titleblock, not not the titleblock itself. t's not just PDF's though. Kind of like they were on a frozen layer, but they weren't.

 

It's the Adobe PDF Converter - Windows System Driver - by Autodesk for the PDF's. OCE driver for our Colorwave 300.

Autodesk's PDF driver is the DWG to PDF.PC3 file found in the PLOT dialog pop-up, unless you deleted it: the one you mention is a 3rd party driver.

 

Try the built-in PDF as a test.

This still does not fix the plotting to OCE issue. This has happened more then once. And it doesn't happen all the time so it's kind of hard to test it. Just seeing if anyone else had this issue and fixed it. I'll use the DWG to PDF.PC3 file though.
