Text printing SNAFU...Pls Help!!! (R8)

Text printing SNAFU...Pls Help!!! (R8)

Text printing SNAFU...Pls Help!!! (R8)

I have been having major problems everytime I try to print a drawing with text on it.  The sheet image on my screen looks normal, but the one that actually prints has my text scattered all over the page! Does anybody know of a fix for this?


RE: Text printing SNAFU...Pls Help!!! (R8)

We had a similar problem to this with SolidWorks and it turned out to be the printer driver.  Has it ever plotted correctly and do you have any other output device you can plot to?  If it prints fine somewhere else I would suggest investigating your output device and drivers...

We have this sometimes too. The solution we found is make sure the 'graphics printed as text' box in the printer options is turned, um, off.  Or maybe on, I can't remember which way around it was!
