Additional 9.5 printing issues

Recommended Posts

We are experiencing a similar problems noted in a previous topic, notably with printing as PDF. We are Mac based, system OS X, and have upgraded to vw 9.5.1. We are not having problems printing to our HP Designjet 650C plotter. our Realtech Laser 400 printer or our Brother MFC-8600 machines. We in the past have been able to send PDF files of VW to our printer via email. They are able to make full size copies of our drawings that are quite nice. In the past we have used Print-to-PDF as a means to outputting PDF's. The problem with that was it substituted our fonts (Syntax) with Times. Not a big deal as it was all legible. With OS X this problem went away, all our fonts come through fine, and the printing commands are strealined. We recently have noticed athe following problem with this sytem: the PDF files when printed have tones in all areas that have text blocks, worksheets, blockout rectangles, basically any thing that has a solid fill. The drawings are legible, but look awful- like the days when blueprints wehre made from drawings with stickyback on them. It is also a problem where you need to show existing from new work. I've tried every setting in the Vectorworks tab of the Print dialog window, but none work (in fact any time the postcript is checked only text prints). Its the same with VW 9.5 as well. Any thoughts as to what happend or what can be done?
