VW 12.5 printing hatches problem

Question

We are having trouble printing hatches on a HP500PS, VW Architect 12.5. When we print, there are blank panels in the hatches, making the print unusable.

When we revert back to VW 12 Architect, the print turns out fine. The blank panels appear randomly, and we have tried deleting the polygon and making new polygon with new hatch, but the same happens.

We have also tried shutting down, restarting, checking all the boxes as suggested in another thread for OS, but nothing works apart from reverting to VW 12.

Anybody any ideas, or is this another bug.

Windows XP service pack 2, all recent updates, Pentium P4, 3.8HGz, 2Gb Ram

Checkmark only "Print patterns at onscreen resolution" in the Print dialog box.

We have tried that and it still does not work. Printing at screen resolution also results in inferior print quality ie. too obvious dots.

I have tried switching sketch off and choosing "colour matching managed by application" and it appears to work, but not in skecth mode.

The printer is shared on a server, using Windows server 2000 - driver is v6.03.00

We have now updated to v6.06 driver and also set up a printer which is not shared on the network - neither work and the "bald patches" in the hatches are still there, and even some hatches omitted from polygons entirely.

I have also checked back onthe print which looked to be OK when printed in non sketch mode and on closer inspection noted that whole polygon hatches are omitted, though they have no bald patches.

Our IT man has been looking into it and talking with HP, who say that as it was working in V12, it is a problem at Nemetschek.

Help - we have some major Planning applications to submit this week and need to have prints which look professional.
