Printing font issues between 12.5 and VW2008??

Recommended Posts

I am running a demo version of VW2008 and I am seeing differences in the final printing output bewteen the same file printed from 12.5.3 and VW2008. The font we are using is Marker Fine Point which we have used with 12.5 for years. When printing with VW2008 the final print output is faint and sometimes barely legible. I just did back to back prints and it's definitely a software issue unless there is something in VW2008 that needs to done differently, which I can't imagine.

Is this just me??

Now I have a dilema in that the drawings I just did in VX2008 cannot be opened in 12.5 and I need to print them for submittals.

Is this an issue with VW2008 or has it carried over to VW2009??

Did you check to see what your printing resolution is set for in VW2008?

File:Document Preferences:Resolution tab.

You could Export the files from VW2008 back to VW12 format so you could open and print them from there.

It is probably something in your settings. While there are some people who are having printing problems, in the overall scheme, most people see happy with the printing from VW.

Document prefs are set exactly the same in both 12.5 and 2008.

All other settings have been checked and are identical.

It's not just me, is it??
