Line moving when printing in catia

Line moving when printing in catia

Line moving when printing in catia


I'm a designing new drawings for a mechanical part. In my drawing i have to create a line that represents the middle of the object. To do so i use a bissector line between the two exteriors (parrallels)lines. Everything is fine as long as it is on the screen, but for an unknown reason, when i print it, the line moves and isn't placed at the center anymore. Have you already experiences that kind of problem ?

Thank you for your help,
Best regards,

What if you save the drawing as a .pdf file.
Is the line within the .pdf off-center?

RE: Line moving when printing in catia

Thank you for your answer,
Yes, even when I try to save it as a PDF it moves the line in the same way.
