AutoCAD Map 2013 Won't Print Feature Layers when zoomed in

while in a layout tab in paperspace, if I zoom in and try to plot a windowed area, the feature layer information does not print but all vector information does.  If I zoom extents and replot using the same previous settings with the small windowed area, all layers plot like they are supposed to.  Now another scenario is as follows:

If I switch to the modelspace tab,  Replot using the same settings as listed above, the feature layers plot as they are supposed to.  It seems that this problem occurs when I am in a layout tab and zoomed into an area.  I am running a Dell Precission T3600,635W, Windows 7,Four Core XEON (E5-1620, 3.6GHz, 10M, Turbo) computer with 32GB DDR3 RDIMM.  I also am running a 2GB NVIDIA Quadro 4000, Dual MON, 2DP & 1DVI graphics card.  I am stumpped.  Any suggestions?

what plotter driver did you use?

Every time when I have problems with plotting output I set the plotter to "DWF6 ePlot.pc3" and try that again. If that work I can take the DWF file, open it in DesignReview and send it to the plotter.

Hi Alfred,


Thank you for the response.  I tried the DWF6 ePlot.pc3 and got the same results.  It doesn't seem to matter which driver I use.  Adobe PDF, Hp T2300 RTL, RICOH-MP4500C.  As soon as I do a preview it show no Feature layers and this also includes any Survey data stores.  The only thing it shows is the CAD vector based info.  If I zoom extents and use the same small window to plot the specific area of the GIS map, it prints and previews everything as it is supposed to.  Even if I export the file to PDF zoomed in cuts out feature layers and leaves pieces of some elsewere on the drawing.  The only way to make it work is zoom extents.
