    Default Viewport printing weird

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    So I have this layout page with 4 viewports on it. all of them are set to print in legacy hidden. 3 of them print perfectly. t 4th one prints partially hidden, paritally wireframe. 3D objects in the faulty vport that are large print hidden, smaller objects are in wireframe. and medium objects can be partially see through.

    This is the weirdest error I have ever seen in autocad. anyone have any ideas?

    also. I tried copying the working vports. didnt work. If I make the faulty one smaller, only show half my image, it becomes all hidden. showing the full drawing screws it up. (maybe too much data for the video card?)

    Would you be willing to share your drawing with us (via Dropbox for instance)? I suspect the file size is quite large.

    I cant sorry. Confidential. Even posting the pic might get me in hot water.

    I'm pretty competent with Autocad. And have tried everything that is within reason. It has to be something outside the normal variables. Have you ever seen anything like this.
