Printing without borders around xrefs pdf and jpeg

I have a drawing with an xref'd title block and an xref'd pdf document (among other things). The titleblock drawing als has an xref'd logo in jpeg format.  I turned the lines white (RGB 255,255,255) in the properties of the logo xref and pdf xref so the drawing would print without a border around them. This worked fine until recently. The border started showing up in black ink even though the border is designated white. The only thing I think I did differently that may have caused it was to accendentally click print preview when the printer/plotter was set to DWF55 ePlot (optimized for plotting).pc3. After that the border started showing up even when I changed the printer/plotter to the usual plotter I use.


Any ideas how to fix this and/or a better way to print without borders around jpeg's and pdf's?


Useing AutoCAD MEP 2010, but a suggestion that works in another version is welcome.

I am not sure about the xref's and pdf's but for jpegs you can type IMAGEFRAME and set the variable to 0.  This will turn off frames around images.
