Annotative text is set 'match orientation to layout'. In the viewport the text is shown correctly. However when I print the text is rotated 90 degrees.
My print setting is 24x36 sheet and landscape.
Is the landscape setting doing this?
Is there a way to correct this besides turning off 'match orientation to layout'?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm not able to reproduce this. Can you provide some additional information?
Does this happen in all drawings? New drawings as well as existing?
What type of plotter are you using?
Have you updated the plotter driver?
Are you plotting to the system driver or a pc3?
Does this happen with a different output device such as the DWG to PDF.pc3 or DWF6 ePlot.pc3?
Volker - Thanks for the response here is some additional info:
I realized that I do not have this problem for text which is 'drawn' in model space and then inside the viewport. However it is rotating the text that is 'drawn' in paper space 'on top of' the viewport. Then when I print to PDF (24x36 w/ landscape option selected) the text that was 'drawn' in paper space is rotated but the text from model space is ok. Any thoughts?
Q: Does this happen in all drawings? New drawings as well as existing?
R: It is happening in new drawings but most of our old drawings do not use annotation and are not set to "match layout".
Q: What type of plotter are you using?
R: We have a Xerox 6204 Wide Format however I am printing to a pdf.
Q: Have you updated the plotter driver?
R: I believe so however I'm currently trying to 'publish' to a pdf.
Q: Are you plotting to the system driver or a pc3?
R: I'm not sure. How can I tell?
Q: Does this happen with a different output device such as the DWG to PDF.pc3 or DWF6 ePlot.pc3?
R: So far it is has been an issue w/ 'publish to pdf'
Thanks for that feedback. Your explanation as to how you are using text explains what is happening.
Annotative text was never intended to be used in a paperspace environment since it is a 1:1 environment. In a sense it is working as designed although I admit that what is happening is not what I would have expected.
I can recommend two options:
I hope this helps. Cheers,
