OK, I could really use some help here, as I missed deadlines with printing failures.
I am trying to print PDFs from Layout space. I have typically one detail view in a layout page.
The view looks correct on-screen when I have Print Detail turned on to show the lineweights and print color.
Printing in either vector or raster is leaving large blank or masked out portions of the page. Sometimes this is constrained to within the detail view (this seems like the vector-outputs). Sometimes the blank or masked out areas are both within the detail and over the objects and text in the layout space (title block, etc). This seems like the raster-outputs.
I have tried these things, and all have failed to fix the printing errors:
-RefreshShade. (This has seemed to work in the past).
-ClearDrawOrder (Even though this will cause problems with the final print in hiding certain lines and hatches beneath objects).
-Changing the print color of the layer that contains the actual detail rectangles from white to a visible color. I usually have the layer color on white so that it “disappears” when PrintDisplay is on, for visual acuity.
-Going into the detail, changing to wireframe mode, RefreshShade, ClearAllMeshes, then returning to the custom shaded mode, then getting out of the detail back into layout space.
-Going into model space, saving the current layer state, turning on all layers, RefreshShade, ClearAllMeshes, then turning back on the current layer state.
-Printing with PrintDisplay off.
-Saving a detail’s layer state, creating a new detail, restoring the layer state into that new detail, trying to print that detail.
-Turning on all layers everywhere, then printing, even though the detail shows a bunch of garbage. Still, objects within the viewport are missing their outlines, or are outlined in white.
-Going into model space, deleting (almost) all the objects on unused layers.
-Going into the detail view, grabbing everything visible in that detail’s “model” space, moving it 1,000 ft away. Then go into true model space, delete all objects left remaining in the original spot, then moving back the selected objects into place, then returning to layout (this will leave the objects originally visible in the detail, still there).
-Updating my PDF printer from Adobe Acrobat 9 Professional to Adobe Acrobat XI Standard.
-Close Rhino, reboot the computer.
The odd thing is that certain layouts print fine (A1.3, A1.4) while others fail every time.
Would someone please figure out how to fix this?
