Getting lines to print - Export PDF vs Print to PDF

Question

Recently moved to 2009 from 9.5.2 and am having some issues with printing to pdf.

I'm working on light plots 24x36 in size, so I can't print the whole thing myself but I've got both a freeware pdf printer (PDF995) and the legit acrobat one installed so files can be emailed to print company. When I print a file with either pdf printer, the file appears fine on screen, but when I do a test print of a section of the drawing with my desktop HP printer, no horizontal lines and only parts of the small circles and hexagons print. No such issues if I use export to pdf and test print on the same printer or when I print to the HP straight from the VW file.

I had this issue back with 9.5.2, but only with the Acrobat printer.

Anyone else run into this issue?

TIA

What line weight are the lines that don't print? I have found with PDFs I need to use a minimum 0.07mm line weight for it to print.

Seems to have magically fixed itself - only thing I did was turn off GDI+ Imaging to fix the font display issue - maybe they are related some how.

Thanks!
