Printing / PDF issues

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have this problem where, when i creating a pdf through "File - Export - Export PDF" the PDF looks fine.

But when i am printing the drawing or creating a PDF thorough "File - Print - Microsoft Print to PDF" some lines a missing and there a added some other lines.

This do also happen if I am printing the totally fine PDF created from "File - Export - Export PDF"

 

I have multiple sheeet layers in this file, but it is only this sheet layer that doing it.

 

Is this some issues with my printer or VectorWorks?

 

This is a bit of the correct PDF where all lines are there.

Have you tried looking at the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download). This is kind of the gold standard for PDF compatibility.  If the PDF look right in Acrobat and prints right from Acrobat, then it is not a problem with the PDF. If it looks wrong in Acrobat then it is a problem with the PDF.

 

If it looks right in Acrobat and prints wrong, it is almost certainly a printer problem. Check and update your printer drivers.

Then it must be with my printer.
