Drawing extents changes when 3D visual style is selected.

To Anyone who can help.


When in model space, I zoom extents in 2D Wireframe visual style and the drawing is centered correctly within the viewport as well as the plot offset(plot area set to extents) when I go to print a full scale drawing.


However, When I switch to any other 3D visual Style, everything within the viewport shifts, consequently, everything moves over when I plot(using the same page setup.) The x and y values in the plot offset change dramatically.(center the plot is also selected)

Note: Shaded viewport option is set to legacy hidden.


Can anyone tell me how to go about printing from model space while using 3d visual style,plot area set to extents,and get the same result as plotting in 2d visual style?
