I have a layout with text that I need to update with project info.
-Seems to always update the first time I edit the file, but if I need to redo my calculations and update those numbers the layout doesn’t show the updated numbers, even though when clicking on the text block it shows the right numbers, the text block itself still shows the old numbers.
-Has happened with multiple files, but seems random.
-Sometimes the layout turns gray and I need to close down rhino and re open the file for it to work again too. I already tried to lock/unlock turn on/off all the layers and haven’t had any luck on getting the layout to work.
My files were created with Rhino 5, but resaved with rhino 6 Mac.
3.8 GHz i5
8gb ddr 4
radeon pro 580 8gb
Just updated rhino to Version 6 (6.25.20114.03572, 2020-04-23) about to see if it happens again
Trying to get a screenshot of both problems to post here.
ETA: This first problem (see attached picture) I am having, since I can’t print the background bitmap I place on the layout viewport, already went on the visibility and selected background bitmap, it shows on the preview, but when I press CTRL+P doesn’t show up.
So I place a picture on a separate layer that I can lock and turn on/off, however when I save as a pdf the file is quite big, about 18MB, vs 1MB when it was background bitmap on Rhino 5.
I found a work around, that turning the object transparency down to about 40% the pdf came out to be 7MB without losing image quality. However it worked for about 2 days, now it doesn’t. The print preview shows it being less saturated, while when I press to print it prints as if no transparency was ever set.
I got one of the first bugs I noticed. The gray layout. again, I wasn’t able to make it work by turning layers on/off locking/unlocking. The layout itself is in my “Design” layer. As you can see on the picture below, the print preview on the left show all the information that should print. But when I press command+P it only prints what’s inside of the viewing area, and nothing from the layout itself.
