    Unhappy Certain Parts of Drawing Will Not Print

    I am preparing emergency evacuation drawings. It has a single viewport for the floor plan, a section for instructions and a section for map for muster points. In the plot preview, everything is showing up, but when I print the muster map does not show up. I have looked at the map that I x-refed in. It was under the correct layer, not on a frozen or defpoints layer. I have no idea what is going on. I need help.

    Are you printing in monochrome or in color?

    Are you using a .ctb or .stb plot style?

    Neither? You're funny. The only other option is None which wouldn't make any sense.

    I don't wish to hijack kyles answers, but to save a bit of time-

    It will be one or the other, either a .ctb or a .stb.

    "Neither" is not an option.

    Take a look at this overview of plot styles:

    Im intelligent enough to know that I dont know everything; but I'll tell you all about it anyway.

    No plot style is selected in the plot style table (pen assignments) section.

    You are printing/plotting but you have not selected either a .ctb or .stb plot style. OK, guess we're done here. Thanks for the info.

    You don't have to be glib. Great customer service. Not.
