Hi

 

we have a symbol (head for a drawing) in the PID class definition as a non technical object with attrbibutes linked to properties of the drawing...

 

also it includes a picture included as xref or ole

 

we can use this symbol in a drawing, and you can see the logo on the screen, but when you print the drawing never you can see the logo (tested with different printers)

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi Guido,

 

I can recreate the issue here and reported it to our development department. The workaround here is to insert the picture separately with the normal INSERT-command. Then the picture will be plotted.

 

Regards

Bernd

Hello Bernd

 

with the _insert-Command you can only insert dwg and dxf?! That's right?

 

And do you mean, that we should insert the picture in the drawing and not in the Block-Editor, started in the project properties?

 

 

best regards

Hi Guido,

 

Sorry, my mistake, I mean with ATTACH or just a PASTE, not INSERT-command. To your second question: Yes, this is exactly what I mean.

 

Regards

Bernd
