    Default Text prints only outline

    Ok I am using ACAD2002... Previously I was able to print to what ever printer I wanted and my text in my template in paper space would print out solid and black....Earlier today I attempted to paste part of a spread sheet into my acad. It did not work, but since then whenever I try to print my text is outlined instead of solid. Kinda hard to see and read. Please help me...
    Thanks,

    Try your TEXTFILL variable it should be set to 1 for solid filled text,

    Many possible reasons for this issue.
    First check the variables FILLMODE and TEXTFILL; they should be both set to 1.
    Then check that the visual style is not set to hidden but rather to 2dwireframe (_vscurrent > 2)
    This problem happen even if the viewport in paperspace has the shade plot option set to hidden instead of "as displayed" but this should affect only the text in model space showed in your viewport.

    Hope one of this suggestions solves your problem
    HAVE A NICE DAY

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Haven't used Accurender, do most of my renders through plain acad or maybe a little 3DMax, - some photoshop touch ups, but I'm sure someone here will.
