Bug: printing in Artistic View

When printing in Artistic view, raster mode -> I have always first left upper rectangle looking differently.
Any idea - why? when increasing quality - this rectange becomes smaller, but does not disappear.
Have tried different PDF printers already.

See below:

Btw - Rhino pdf gives no Raster output even though it is selected.


I can’t even get the Artistic background to show. I get a white background. Do you see the same @pascal?


Hi Dmitriy, David - I do not get the tiling here. @DavidEranen the background color is set in the ‘Visibility’ section of the print dialog. I’ll test some more .

I am not seeing the problem so far - my guess(es) of the moment is that there is a really specific combination of settings that I have not hit yet, or this is video card dependant, or it’s just fixed… @Dmitriy I’m sure we’ve asked you before but can you please run SystemInfo (Help menu > System information) and paste the results here?



Hi @pascal

yes, sure. See below:

I’m seeing that here. Though far from as extreme as what Dmitriy is seeing and my top left tile is much smaller.

Thanks @wim

This relates to the print resolution used and format size.
So, maybe @pascal can register this in YouTrack.


So, do we have a track issue registered?


Not until we can repeat it.
