Wipeout Lines Not coming to Front when printing

when printing in view ports, wipeouts don't show. wipeouts are transparant.

ive tried copying the same wipeout lineweights and pasting it in new documents but have no problems there. i've tried resaving under a brand new document but still no luck. apparently it's only happening in the same 2 documents.

 

anyone have problems with this before?

I don't quite get what you mean because wipeouts are supposed to not plot. Thats sort of their thing.

The wipeout frames have the option to plot or not. Check your frame option. Also see if it is on a non plotting layer, or the old "plot paper space last" setting in the plot dialog.

Do you mean they don't hide anything? Did youn turn on LINEMERGE in the PC3 file you are using by chance?

Hi There I meant to say that the lines behind the wipeout comes to front and you can see the lines through the wipeout blocks. Get what I mean? I attached a PDF to the forum post to show what I meant. thanks Regards, Nicole Dunn NICOLEHOLLIS nicole dunn 935 natoma street san francisco california 94103 d 415 430 9826 t 415 278 9457 f 415 278 9458 ndunn@nicolehollis.com www.nicolehollis.comCONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: The information contained in this email and any attachments may be privileged and confidential information, intended only for the use of the individual or entity named above.

AutoCAD does not always follow its draw order properly. Often I have select everything except the wipeouts then right-click and pick send to back. Then I select the wipeouts and pick bring to front.

Also if the wipeouts are in model space and any other objects are in paper space make sure "plot paper space last" is not checked in the plot dialog box.

No not yet, but I'll let you know. We just upgraded to 2013 too so it sounds like were in the same boat. Mike

Sometimes editing drawings that contain wipeouts can inadvertently affect the draw order.  Just select the wipeout, right click, choose drawing order, and bring to front.  You can alternatively choose the linework that should be hidden and then use draworder to "send to back"

 

If the wipeout is in a dynamic block, you may need to reset the block and then adjust to get the new definition to take.

 

If the wipeout is in an xref attachment, you may need to select the xattachment and choose drawing order for that object.

Hi, Thanks for the input. We always make sure that wipeouts are at the front, so we know that it's not the layer order that's creating this issue. If we set our merge control to 'lines overwrite' under plotter configuration, it will make the wipeout to show properly on PDF, however, if we choose this option, We have to make sure all the layers to be in correct order which is really time consuming. Also, We didn't have any issue with 2012 where we have merge control set to lines merge. We are using 'DWG to PDF - PDF ePlot - by autodesk' for plotting pdf. (same plotter used for 2012) wonder if this needs updates to suite 2013. Please let me know if you had similar experience in the past and found a solution. Thank you~
