Text on Plant labels is visible on screen but doesn't print

Recommended Posts

Still can't get plant label text to print. It'll show up on screen, I can edit it, change its size and all those variables, but I can't seem to locate the problem with getting it to print out. Other text prints just fine (title blocks, etc) just not the plant labels. I've added the file I've been working on in case someone has a theory. This is only the 3rd plan I've actually drawn in Vectorworks (excluding the exercise files) but you'll be able to tell that by the crazy way I have it set up in general.

John I have it printed here in my office. 11x17 if you need it I have a meeting in Maple Grove at noon. I can get it to you if you need it.

I have had this problem.

Try the following.

Double click on the Plant Group or edit from the Resource Browser.

Choose to Edit the 2D graphic

Select the graphic (circle or similar) and check the Object Info.

Most likely the shape is being drawn in Layer Plane.

Change this to Screen Plane and use the exit button to return to the drawing.

2D plant graphics should re-appear for any instances of the plant already placed and for any new ones subsequently placed from the Resource Browser.

Hope that helps.

It seems if you use a common font like Arial, it will print. I have had to search for fonts that did not contribute to printing problems.
