Printing problems in Panther

Question

I am having problems printing to any HP printers, after upgrading to panther.

Funnily enough the few programs that used to have printing problems under Jaguar, now print fine in Panther. But VW only prints blank pages. Unless I check the pref, Print as Bitmaps. This is very slow.

Is there a fix for this problem........even in the preview the page is blank.

Thanks

Are you using VW 10.5.1b ?

If you are, please send the file, printer information and OS information to bugsubmit@nemetschek.net as soon as possible.

Our engineers need to be aware of all possible problems with Panther and VW as soon as possible in order for them to be fixed.

I am also having printing issues with Panther. I am using 10.5 as well as 10.1 and 10.0.1, each on different computers. They print fine in anything non OSX, but they always crash when printing in OSX. Any help would be appreciated

What version of Panther are you using?

Make sure you are using at least 10.3.2

Updating Panther to 10.3.2 seemed to take care of my crashing problems with VW 10.5, et al. Thanks

To follow on from this thread, I am having problems printing in VW9.5.2 with Panther. I am using the 4.2.6GIMP software to print on a HP DJ 450c via a JetDirect card.

The print we obtain is not complete - usually one or more layers is missing.

Any thoughts?

Regards,

Jonathan

I am using Panther 10.3, VW 9.5, but I am having problems printing on a HP Desk Jet 450C as well. I previously found out it was because we had a corrupt font within the file, Univers 55 and Univers 67 CondensedBold. After replacing the font, I was able to print the file. A few prints later, this time in color, the plotter prints out a small strip and the rest is blank. It still cuts it to the right page size though. It shows everything in preview, but won't print properly. And even worse, nothing will print now. The plotter keeps acting up.

Any advice?

If it's showing in preview, but not printing anything- the problem is external to VectorWorks. You should call HP regarding the problem.

Katie is right

I had the same problems with an HP designjet 120nr but it cut after the small strip....sometimes, then nothing printed . They replaced the printer it was a bug in the motherboard printer. They told me I was not the first but I did thank them a lot because they tried to fix it then no question they replace it. Great job. Since then everything's fine with the printer.
