DraftSight Not Printing All Content

Question asked by Rodrigo Perez on Jun 11, 2015

We've been having a problem with DraftSight cutting off the bottom of our drawings when printing to certain printers and to Adobe .PDFs.  So, I just upgraded to the latest version, 2015 x64 SP2, for Windows 7 and it seems to have corrected the issue of cutting off the bottom of the drawings, but is now having another problem with printing.


The new problem is that not all of the content within the drawing itself is printing!  The border and drawing properties are all there, but some of the content in the drawing area is missing and in a very strange way.  We have a drawing with a couple of tables in it that act as an index to the subsequent drawings.  When printing this sheet now, only a few, non-contiguous rows are printing.  In other words, the top 3 or 4 rows will print, then the next couple of rows won't print, followed by a few more that do print, and some more that don't print.  Also, the when the printing stops, it's not generally on a row's border, but halfway through the row.  Finally, when the table is about 1/3 of the way completed, no more rows are printed.


The Print Preview looks normal and I've checked to ensure that our Xerox Phaser 7500 printer has the latest firmware and that we are using the most current drivers, but it still prints the document as described above.  I have tried printing using both Postscript and PCL, but the results are exactly the same.  If, however, I print to our Epson inkjet printer, the printout is just fine.


Any thoughts or ideas on how to get this to print correctly?  I'm stumped at this point.
