Rhino 6 print setting window became blank

I have 90day evaluation Rhino 6 version testing before purchase – few days ago, when attempting to print or print to pdf options – print setting window became blank.
Cant see no setting at all. Was trying to repair and reinstalled Rhino but the same – blank print setting window appears. Please find solution.

Hello - please look in Options > PLug-ins page and make sure the Renderer Development Kit plugins are enabled and loaded.


I experienced this for the first time yesterday. I was unsure is this was a monitor problem somehow and the the print would be correct. When I printed the prints were blank like the preview. Both to Printer and PDF. I shut down Rhino and restarted which seemed to fix it. A bit later it happened again. This time I just changed from the layout page to perspective view and back again. This fixed the blank display and the print was correct. Not sure why this suddenly happened.

Hello - I understood the original post to be referring to the Print controls and not the print preview. My comments about loading the rdk only apply if the the print settings and controls are blank…


I missed where the post said “print setting went blank.” In my case the Print preview window went blank.

If it were me, I’d update display adapter drivers (both adapters) and see if that sorts it.
There also was a fairly recent fix related to Raster and Vector print settings. That might be in the SR9 release candidate.
