Here's one for the mystery books.
I have a project in vault (v2011), with surfaces, etc. data referenced into a sheet (neglect workflow for the moment) that displays correctly, print preview's correctly, but when plotted does not show the surface contours of any surface. Additionally, some contour labels and spot labels display CORRECTLY while some spot labels are ??? and some contour labels are not visible.
So, with that knowledge, anyne have ideas?
By the way, the surfaces are in different source files.
-- added 2 images to show differences. The spot labels reference the SAME surface.
Are you getting the same behavior when using any other plotter. Try DWG to PDF.pc3 and see if you get the same issue. If it all works fine, then it could be your plotter driver.
In general those ??? usually happen if the connection between the drawing (label) and referenced object is lost. For sake of troubleshooting, could you move all your drawings to your local directory and see if the same happens?
It seems that ourPC3 files had been modified in our shared folder. Restored from last known working date and all is well. With permissions locked down, not sure how they changed... but bygones.
Not sure, though, why PC3 files would cause this....
