Viewport conceptual but plot out realistic...

I set 3D vieports in the paper space. Some of them are realistic, some of them are conceptual. In the preview everything looks good. But in the printed drawings (or pdf) the conceptual views look like realistic ones.


No idea whats wrong since in layout and then in preview they seem to be ok.

Deleting and creating new vieport doesnt help.


Best regards

Click on the line that represents the viewport, not in the viewport. go to properties. look for the setting for shade plot. If it was set to "as displayed" I would think everything would be ok for the way you wanted to plot. If it is set to one of the other visual styles then it will overide the displayed visual display when it plots.

It was set as displayed. But i changed there to the type of the view that i wanted and it was ok. So there was a solution for the problem. I think its kind of bug. I have now 2014 but in 2013 it also happened a few times to me.
