Problems with printing 'OLE' objects

We're having a bit of trouble with OLE objects in our title blocks. Our title blocks are blocks within the drawing, with an embedded OLE for our company logo. Our problem is that when we print the drawings the OLE logo seems to dissapear. Does any one have any tips on how to correct this?


I have noticed that it tends to happen with oversize drawings mainly, could this be a problem if the drawing is greater than A0?


Thanks alot. :smileyhappy:

Temporarily attach the logo and trace it with (in your case) elliptical arcs.  You should be able to use gradiant hatching to reproduce the transition from green to black.  Convert your filled text to vectors or try to avoid truetype fonts others wouldn't have on their system.


I would use a crayon before I would use OLE !!!
