Region not printing correctly since Update Release 2 - Revit 2014

Hi there, I have a region on a Generic Annotation symbol loaded into a family that is'nt displaying properly when printed, even though looks good on the preview.

Or have I made an error when creating the Family.

 

(attached is a screenshot of the pdf & families used)

 

 

I have updated the software drivers for the printer & pdf995.

 

This has only occured since installing the recent Update Release 2, and all other seeting have not been altered has anyone else had a similar issue ?

when the print windows open go to setup (right-bottom) then on the print setup page select raster processing and it should fix the problem

see attachement for a better visualize the solution

Thanks for your reply - but we changed from printing in Vector mode to Raster mode in a bid to prevent 'blocky' curved lines (see attached).

 

Our symbol has only started looking like the original screengrab since we installed  the update last week - when I originally posted this to @Autodeskhelp.

the only solution that i found is to edit your family and divide you filled region into several segements, i modified your family and it does look good now when comes to printing.

 

the problem is nested family with a circle filled area.

 

i have unistalled revit 2014 and then reinstall it with update1 and i still see the problem, i see it in 2013 also 

i downgraded .net 4.5 to .net 4.0 and still no solution so i guess you need to play round your family, look at how i edited your nested family

Thanks for your solution, this is the only instance this occurs - so maybe in future if there are any regions on a nested family these will be broken up to prevent this.

i realised that is not with any regions, i think is more when it is a circle region.
