Structures not plotting with publish

My storm drain profiles will not plot the structures if I publish. They plot ok if I use the plot command, but I'd like to be able to publish. Has anyone run into this?

I have this problem with a few drawings also. They will plot to PDF individually using the DWG to PDF.pc3, but if i PUBLISH the existing grade in the profile is missing.

Has anyone found the reason or solution for these problems. I've been having a similar issue with my data referenced surface profile not plotting using publish.


Now my surface profile will not appear unless I synchronize every time I open the contract drawing. I have tried recovering all drawings.

Turn off publish in background and try again. This can be found in OPTIONS in the plot/publish tab.
