Printing Viewports

Question

Our office just incorporated the use of viewports into our drawings. We are having problems with printing from viewports. Viewports are often left off of the print; sometimes one viewport, sometimes mutltiple. Has anyone else had this or similar issues? Does anyone have any solutions, suggestions? Any help would be great.

Also, sometimes when setting up sheets, the viewports and titleblocks will change their scales and position on the sheets. Upon trying to rescale and reposition the elements on the sheet, the changes do not hold. Not sure what is happening, however it is very frustrating. Again, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

We are having exactly the same problem as you mention in your first paragraph, using VW 11.5.1 onto an HP DesignJet 800PS with both the postscript and non-postscript drivers on Windows XP.

Was any solution found? We are new to Viewports so it might be something silly we've missed!

yeah ... confusing to be sure ...

1) VW page set-up & print

2)Viewport Print set-up > DPI>Page>select >One Page

3)If possible >Print to PDF >preview

Try to avoid printing directly from VW. Best option is to print to PDF then from PDF to printer/plotter.
