Disappearing Flanges around valves when printing

When working with P&ID, the flanges disappear when printing.  It shows them on screen but gone when printed.  This happens only on one seat and not any of the others seats.  Please see the attachment.  

 

Thanks

If you use the EXPORTPDF command, do the flanges show up?

Sorry,  It does work.  The flanges do show up when I use the EXPORTPDF command. I can print with it for now but it would be nice if I could plot the normal way.  This is only happening on 1 of 6 workstations.  Do you know why?  Is there a setting that can get us back to be how it was before like all the other stations.

EXPORTPDF uses the same PC3 file as the plot/publish command (DWG to PDF.PC3) so I doubt that would be corrupted, but you can double-check by comparing with another workstation.

 

You can see these files by using the PLOTTERMANAGER command. It will take you directly to the folder where the PC3 files are stored on the machine.

 

It might be something with the AutoCAD profile or the Windows user profile. Have you tested the drawing plot while logged in under a different user account?
