What is it about Rhino servcie release updates .I use a lot printing to PDF for distributing to none rhino users, The first verison of Rhino 6 worked (sort of) but the the print “bitmap” (used for logo’s in title blocks ) did not work (ackowldge by Mcneel). The bitmap logo did not appear in the print preview but did print out in either my preferred PDF printer (cutepdf writer) or in the one supplied by Rhino itslef . The Micorsoft PDF (printer) has never worked in any service release of Rhino 6. So now we have Rhino 6.6 dated 26/06/208 and this really takes the biscuit" Now when I create a new entitiy in a model that used to print fine to PDF using cutePDF writer the new entity simply “disappears” on the PDF print out even though the layer is set to print ok. TO check it was SR 6.6 that was the issue I left my rhino 6 on my laptop at the previous service release. From that version the print to PDF works fine other than as already posted where the bit map does not show in the preview but at least it prints out in the PDF and all entities show ok in the preview and they print out ok. Opening the same file in SR6.6 the new entities drawn in SR6.6 simply disappers on the PDF print out. Its the same with the prinmetr "Rhino PDF2, Cutepdfwriter and the microsoft PDF printer.
So once again an update has wasted another 3 hours of my life trying to work out a way round this rather basic function. As it is I am not updating the laptop version (evne though it constantly nage me to do so) and I so edit the the model on my main machine (which is much faster and 32Gb memory) and then network the file to my laptop to open it up in the previous service release to print it out, wher ot prijts our fine, Very tedious but it seems to be the only way round this issue at the moment.
Whilst I appreciate the added bells and whistles of SR 6.6 if basic functions, like printing to a PDF are lost by whatever has been changed then the software becomes very challenging to use, and I am glad I kept versions 4 and 5 installed on my lap top.
I have been using Rhino since version 3 and the last 3 service release of Rhino 6 have been an absolute nightmare with several issues that makes the software very challenging and time consuming. PLEASE make sure when you issue Service releases they are tested for basic functions like printing to PDF and I for one will be a lot happier. As it is can anyone tell me how stop Rhino nagging me to upgrade my lapop version untli this is sorted out.
