Xref'd PDF partially prints?

Hello,

 

I have a PDF xref'd into paperspace on a detail sheet. It previews fine, however, when actually plotting it only partially prints. There is an other xref'd pdf that prints fine on the same sheet.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

how was the PDF  created - i.e. if created with 2010+ products, PDF's can be a vector versus a raster file format.  Is this something like layers within a vector-based .pdf not printing (sounds more rational than portions of a raster not printing).

 

Do you have access to a full-version of Adobe to tweak the PDF to a single layer i.e. convert a multi-layer vector .pdf to a single raster layer.

 

grasping at straws on this, but at least something to try.

I got it to work. Set AutoCAD to print in the background, and it worked fine. I think it was an issue of the printer not having enough memory. I saw another post concerning printing PDF's and it lead me to checking plot and publish settings.

 

Thanks for the reply.
