VW Spotlight 2020: Some text not showing up in PDFs


So I've read posts from many years/versions ago about this same problem, but "rasterize text" doesn't solve it.  I am using Arial (system font) - Windows machines... Dimension text "prints" to PDF just fine.... title block text (again, Arial) prints fine...  Changing fonts makes no difference....  I've tried "exporting" to PDF, as well as "printing" to PDF, same thing.  No text, unless it's a dimension,  or within some inserted thing, like a title block, or drawing label tool.  Callout tool does not print text, just the line.  All text is on the "None" class, as is just about everything else in  the drawing (except dimension text).  Ideas?  I'm out of hair to pull out....


EDIT: I see that this happens when I try to export/print SHEET layers, if that's a clue.  I've selected the viewport, looked at the properties, and clicked on "Advanced Properties..." and clicking the Preview button makes the text go away. Fiddling with all the options in the "Advanced Properties" doesn't make the text come back....    (Text can print, if I print the Design layer, just not Sheet Layers.)
