I’m not sure if this is a bug, a limitation, or if the problem lies somewhere between the chair and the keyboard…
PDF printing is not working properly (or at least as it did in v5) for me. In my title block I use a .bmp picture object along with regular text objects and curves making up the remainder. The detail views are in shaded mode and all of my dimensions and other annotations etc. are created in paper space. When printing to PDF using either the rhino or adobe PDF printer it will only print what’s in the detail views and not anything that is created in paper space despite the print preview showing everything there. If I remove the picture object it prints everything okay, but unfortunately, not having a company logo on a drawing is not an option. Likewise, if I print the title block without any detail views it prints fine.
I tried recreating the logo as surfaces in paper space but I get black outlines around everything making it illegible. The only way I was able to get it to work was to have the logo created as surfaces in model space through a detail that is shown in rendered mode. Not really okay for me to have it living in the model space under normal circumstances, I was just too far into the layouts on this one to go back to v5.
Could this be a raster/vector issue? I tried both options in the print properties and neither worked.
Could it have anything to do with the source image file format? I tried .jpg and .bmp because I happened to have both handy. Is there a recommendation?
Is there another means that I’m not aware of by which I can achieve this in paper space?
I’m using the evaluation version (6.2.18051.9541, 2/20/2018)
Any help is greatly appreciated!
