Some entities not plotting

Our 50% plots don't print some entities.  They plot fine at 100%.  This occurs across multiple workstations.  I first made sure that all the systems were updated with the latest updates and that the plotter driver was updated to see if that would fix it.  No change.  All workstations have Revit 2012 with update #2.  Printing to and OCE TDS600 with the newest driver.

Have you tried changeing from Vector to Raster, or vice versa?

 

This sometimes corrects the problem.

 

You might also try printing to PDF with a PDF print driver, then print hard copies from the PDFs.

We have tried PDF too.  They seem to work ok. Unfortunatly I can't say if we created the PDF at 100% then printed the PDF as a 50% plot.    How do you suggest changing from vector to raster?  Where do I change that?

We did make that change and it did work.  Thanks so much for the information.  I would like to know why vector is not printing correctly.  A bug maybe?
