I've got a .PDF of a survey attached (not overlayed) to my site plan construct...on a printable layer. In my sheet it shows up. When I print preview it's there. When it comes out of the plotter it's not there. If I print the PDF by itself through Acrobat it prints fine. Is there a bug here?
When we have had this problem it was the plotter or printer, one in the office can't handle and dwgs with pdf's one will work some of the time depending on the size of the pdf and the big plotter works with them most of the time. What we have done was to convert the pdf to a jpg and this works most of the time.
Well, I got it to work. Turns out I needed to check the box labled Plot Transparency in the Plot Dialog box. I never knew (and still don't) know exacty what that box is for, but it seemed to solve the problem.
