arrow fill in paper space versus model space

We are new at getting into using paper space. Why do arrow heads that show
on the drawing as solid, and plotting in model space plots them solid, but
plotting them in paper space they are not filled?

Is your Pspace Viewport object set to have HidePlot turned off?
Mview select Pspace Viewport and make sure Hideplot is OFF.

Another approach: Create a custom arrowhead and use a series of closely space lines for "fill" instead of a solid hatch. It will display the same in paper and model space regardless of fill settings.

hideplot is off. It is not plotting any fills or soilds, like in arrowheads
or solid fills. Also, it is only on some drawings, others are correct.
What can be causing it?

You might try:

!. Making a back-up copy of each affected drawing.

2. Run and audit and/or recovery on each of the affected drawings.

3. Wblock each of the affected drawings out to a new drawing.

If you use a bold true type font, such as arial bold, and plot large text
(1/2" or better), is the text filled ?

I seem to vaguely remember a windows system setting that causes this, along
the lines of "font smoothing".

We do not use TTF's and I do turn off the font smoothing setting on all the
systems because with it on, it meeses up the mtext window. The thing is,
the same machine and autocad session could have 2 different drawing from the
same project and one is fine, and the other is not. There must be a
setting, but cant find it. They are all the same fonts, same styles, etc.

I meant for you to try a big ttf as a test to see if it plotted hollow as
well, if so then I have a path to follow for an answer.

arrow heads and ttf text started behaving with similar plotting
characteristics around 2004 or so.

i knew it wasn't font smoothing, but it is probably something similar, i
just can't remember it without putting on a search, but the search would be
pointless if large ttf text plots ok for you.

Doug,

Sorry, I misunderstood. I tested it with 2 big fonts, and yes, they plot
hollow. Soo, what does that mean then? I would think there is a setting, I
am not sure what it is.

Thanks for your help . . .
