I've recently purchased a new computer and installed Chief Architect 11. Everything is loaded and working except when I print I do not get any of the jpeg images. All of the line weights seem thinner than expected also. I have an HP designjet T120 printer and have downloaded the latest drivers and rebooted my computer. The printer is working properly for other software so now I'm thinking something is wrong on the Chief Architect side. Is there a setting that I've forgotten to change or is there something I need to do to initiate a new printer driver? Any help is appreciated.
Working on my first project in Chief. The attached PDF is a screen shot showing part of a PDF created in Chief and the layout page that the PDF was derived from. In the drawing I drew the triangles in the gable to represent louvered gable end vents. In the drawing, they are fine, but in the PDF, the triangles are shifted a couple inches.
Any idea what's going on here?

I've had a few questions about some of my screen porch videos because I skipped over some of the basics. Here's a video that shows how to create a screen porch room...define the wall type and the railing wall type. I use "panels"...so, you will have to create a railing panel. I have also created a video on how to make a panel...it's on my YouTube Page. Let me know if I've missed something...or, if a guru has a tip or better method feel free to comment.
For some reason, when I print to PDF some of the lines are shifting from where they are on the layout. It seems like it is just happening on the elevations, at least as far as I've noticed.
Here are some screenshots of the original layout:
This is what the PDF looks like:
Has anyone else had issues like this? Is there something I am doing wrong?
Here are the plans for anyone who has a moment.
So I don't know what the heck is going on here. I'm using several PDFs on my layout (like I've done many time before) and for an unknown reason the line weight on the PDFs are really faint when I use the Chief Architect Save as PDF option to print. The Preview and the Layout both show the line weights on the PDFs at the correct weight. It's only when I save out the PDF that it goe faint. Nothing else on the drawings change. The weight for everything drawn in Chief is good. The PDFs themselves have the correct weight when you open them. It's ONLY when I'm saving out the PDF that the line weight gets reduced on ONLY the PDFs.
See the photos below. They demonstrate what's happening.
Here's what I've tried already with no change:
-Run in in both black and white
-Save the PDFs to the Layout file
-Toggle line weight on Layout on/off
