    Default Draw Order of Viewports and Objects in Paperspace

    Hi Everyone

    I am trying to print/plot an area in paperspace that has a vieport for objects in model space and text& other obtjects in paperspace. However, when I view preview, the paperspace objects are cut off by the model space objects in the viewport. Specifically, I have a solid hatched area in model space and a leader in paperspace that ends within the solid hatched area, but the leader is cut off at the edge of the solid hatch in the preview. I am using a grey color with screening for plotting the solid hatch to make it appear shaded. The leaders will plot black. As the solid hatch has screening anything below it should show through, but not in my case. The hatches still cut off paperspace objects. It seems that I can move model space objects above hatches, but not paperspace objects.

    How can I get this to put the paperspace objects on top of the model space objects so the leader will be visible over the shaded area when plotted?

    I cannot find the answer anywhere. I even have most of my text from another forum question as I have exactly the same problem (and it is with better english than mine), but there was no answer there. I'm really hoping someone will help.

    I have tried Tools-Draw Order and CDORDER so far. None of them helped.

    Thank you

    In the Plot dialogue box, on the right hand side, there should be a box with the words "Plot paperspace last".
    Put a tick in that box, and see if it works.
