Autocad won't plot my stuff?

When I give the plot command, it opens up the plot properties screen like normal, but when i click preview or when I save my drawing as a PDF to open in illustrator, one of my layers doesn't show up. They're really simple layers too. What gives?

my supervisor has had problems plotting as well, especially when trying to send multiple prints

Is that layer DEFPOINTS or set to NOPLOT, or is your layer 0 turned off or frozen?

What is unique about that layer: annotative text perhaps?

You don't provide details, you are only reporting symptoms, try to dig a little deeper in the file and give more feedback over here.

Alright well the layer that won't plot IS my 0 layer, if that helps at all?

you draw on layer 0?

As a test, move those objects to layer 1, do they suddenly plot?
