Map 3D style labels not printing

403 Views, 14 Replies

We are working on a Map that has all the line and text styles set as we want them displayed. Layout tab 1, 2 and 4 display everything as we need, but as soon as we print or print preview some of the text doesn't print or show up in the preview. However, Layout tab 3 displays everything as well and it prints correctly. Scales on Layout tabs 2,3, and 4 are all set to the same scale. Layout 1 is an overview.

 

I am using:

Map 3D 2014

Window 7 Professional

Intel(R) Xeon)R) CPU, W3565 @ 3.20GHz

12.0 GB ram

64-bit Operating System

 

Any help would be appreciated, we are not sure where to go from here...

 

Thanks,

Ryan

 

 

Hi,

 

>> I am using the feature label and creating a MTEXT label

That would have been the first point to check, I only use TEXT and not MTEXT.

 

>> I think I figured it out

Great to hear/read that, so I'm quiet...until you get back with questions :smileywink:

Hi,

 

welcome @forums.autodesk.com!

 

What printer-driver did you try? Is the problem the same if you plot using the "DWF6 ePlot.pc3" or "DWG to PDF.pc3"?

Thanks for such a quick reply...

 

I have tried both printer driver, "DWF6 ePlot.pc3" , "DWG to PDF.pc3"  I also have adobe on my computer and I have tried the "Adobe PDF" printer driver.

All 3 do the same thing...

 

I have also went back through and have check the annotation scales and viewport scales are all the same on layout tabs 2-4...

 

Thanks again...

Hi,

 

what objects are the label objects? AutoCAD-Text or -MText or blocks with attribtues? Or labels from FDO-connected data (if so, what data source type is it)?

How many text objects are there? For FDO-labels you can look to >>>that message<<< for maximum number of labels.

The labels are GIS connected data. So I followed the step on the link and increased and decreased the maximum number of labels. And it is still comes up with the same print and print preview...

 

Thanks Again,

 

Ryan

Hi,

 

ok, have you tried to save the GIS-layer and load it into a new drawing (and create a layout with a viewport and plot then)?

Ok, so now I have saved the GIS-layers and loaded them into a new drawing, and now I have the labels showings as I want them to look. And now when I go to print I get the labels on the other half of the layout to show and print, however the ones that are showing \ printing in the orignal file wont show / print in the new file...

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi,

 

are you willing to show your data (drawing and GIS-files/database)?

I guess we need to look into the drawing, at least to verify it happens for us too.

Hi,

 

>> Sorry I am not allow to share that...

Fully understand that, but it would be great to diagnose the issue on another system and to have the option to play with the data.

(if you are allowed to forward it directly to me, let me know your email-address via PM)

 

Some questions:

  • are the labels created by a thematic map or by just one stylization of the GIS-layer?
  • do you use MTEXT or TEXT for the label creation?
  • do you use multiple lines-representation for the label?
  • are the labels built based on formulas or are simple attribtues shown directly?
  • (at least I see all of them as an option to try the opposite of whatever you have configured currently)
