Does anyone else have trouble with things not printing (saving to PDF) correctly? I have my pen settings where they've been forever and just adjusted for the dashed posts/piers to be lighter, but still get the goofy partial circle instead when saving the PDF. It prints correctly if I use Cute PDF to save it.

 

This is the drawing screen

This is the plan set screen

And, this is what gets saved to PDF...

I just ran into a similar situation only different just now. 

 

i  have a project that i did in 2014 and now opened up in 2016 to make some changes.  When I print the drawings (in 2016) the prints look like the attached pdf files, even though on the softplan screen they look correct. I use cutepdf pro for all of my printing pdf files.  I use mult-drawings.  I'm not trying to get batch pdf export to work in review and it's taking a long time, so that's not going to be a good answer.

 

Here is how softplan's screen looks.

Here is how the pdf printed.

That stinks. When you are in the multi-drawing I assume you can select your elevations and edit and move them? If so, have you tried removing all the drawings from the multi-drawing and then adding them again? I've found when I import certain drawings or start something new with an old drawing that parts seem like they are in 1 spot on the screen, but are actually in another spot. When I do a clean up or "re-add" them to a drawing they go back to normal. It is more often the case with a DWG import, but maybe the same thing is happening??

I have tried a couple of things to fix the elevation moving issue.  It only happens with the batch print command.  I was able to repeat the issue with printing straight to my printer as well (not using a pdf file).  It doesn't always move the same page or drawing, it just randomly always moves one though.  I tried removing all of the multi drawings then putting them back together to no avail.  I sent it to tech support but they weren't able to repeat the issue.  Anyone else able to repeat this.  Sorry to hijack your post.
