PDFs from 'Export to PDF' seem to be missing parts of Sheet Layers

Recommended Posts

In my current project I have Sheet Layers composed of five Design Layers. All visibilities are good and the Sheet Layers in VW (2019, Mac) look complete on the display.


Recently, though, when I 'Export to PDF' pieces of one or more Design Layers are missing. However, when I zoom the resulting PDF in and out the missing parts are visible, sometimes only momentarily. It's difficult to find a zoom distance where everything is visible.


This started occurring several days ago. Before that the 'Export to PDF' worked fine for making PDFs to print.


I can't think of any changes I've made. I tried quitting VW and re-opening, etc.


Any ideas or sympathies will be appreciated!

I figured out the problem.


The culprit was one of the VW hatches, particularly 'Crushed Stone Coarse HF.' As soon as a substituted a simple tone for it, the PDFs worked well again.


Maybe has something to do with the complexity of the hatch pattern.
