I'm working on a project where we have a fair amount of large skids with shop built equipment, we have drawings for them and Xref them into the drawing to cut down on size and speed of operation. I have a number of connections point that I have to run pipe to and to make this easier to see I use AutoCAD wipeout command to block these areas so you can see the connection point. Everything looks good, but when we make PDF files the area designated by the wipeout frame is plotted like it has a heavy hatch pattern ...and this occurs at each location where I use these frames. I don't want to explode the blocks or bind these equipment drawings, anybody know a way I can get this to work correctly? ...I'm using AutoCAD 13 on this project.
