text disappears during plotting

Hopefully someone else has run across this and has an answer.

 

I'm plotting multiple sheets in revit 2011 (doesn't matter if it's 2 or 20,)the first sheet comes out fine, but all the rest has text / annotation that has disappered.  Text in the title block, elevation markers, section markers, and column bubbles.  The markers appear, but the text doesn't.  Anybody know why?  My work around currently is to plot to pdf and then plotting the pdf.  But this is a step that I shouldn't have to do.

What are you plotting to?

 

I had a similar problem plotting to a KIP.  It turned out that KIP updated some drivers for Windows 7 and Revit that took care of it.

Please let us know what plotter you are using.

Have you updated the printer's drivers?

plotter is HP Designjet 4500 and yes, I updated the drivers.  The text is disappearing on all machines here.

HP.  They have that Universal print driver that isn't so good.  We had to roll back to an older Post Script driver to get that work properly for our 1200 DesignJets.
