Disappearing border with export to pdf

Disappearing border with export to pdf

Disappearing border with export to pdf


Within a sheet I created a border template for my drawing including company name, project details, date, scale etc. When I go to export the drawing to a pdf, the border disappears and I am left just with the drawing. I have used the export function before and have never come across this problem.

Does anyone know how to overcome this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


RE: Disappearing border with export to pdf


Make sure that the layer you have your border and stuff on isn't set to "not print". I had something similar happen to me and it took me awhile to realize that I had accidently set the layer to not print.

Ah yes. I didn't spot that before, thanks Gary!

Glad you got it sorted out.
