Colour shifting slightly when sending elevations to layout using plot lines

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, 

I have been sending elevations to layout recently using the plot lines with color fill box checked for the past few months quite successfully, and then today I experienced what I thought was double vision, but actually what I realized i that the image doubled itself.  one version is the outlines of the drawing and the double  and the other is the colour infill slightly skewed to the left. 19 12 17 65 Clinton Presentation layout legal size.pdf

 

Just last week i did one for another project and worked just fine...December 7 2017 36 Deerford East Wall Kitchen Elevation with Exhaust Hood.pdf

 

anyone know what is going on here?  

 

for now I've gone back to using live views.  I stopped doing that a while ago because my DH (the designer) hates seeing the blurry elevation in the live view.  ( I realize that it becomes clear when we print it, but it irritates him to see it when we are arranging the layouts)

This is a known issue - many previous posts about this behavior.

I only do black and white elevations and wall elevations using "plot Lines" so I have not seen this as I do not use color at all except for standard and ray-traced renderings.

James your example is a little worse than the current capabilities of the software however you still have offset in your good example and you should send in both to tech support and if they hear from enough people it will eventually get fixed.

      I usually print layouts on 24"x 36" paper so that is what my layout template is set up to do. A client wants to print on 11"x 17". When I change the size of the drawing sheet, it changes the paper size without adjusting the title boxes, notes, etc. Is there a way to resize the entire layout without creating a new layout template for 11" x 17" paper?

      The architect I am moonlighting for wants the title sheet to be rotated 90° to the rest of the sheets. I am not sure this is possible without creating a new layout just to have the title sheet be in the correct orientation. Is this an accurate assumption?

      Upon sending 3D cameras to layout, I've noticed that they don't come through with the same aspect ratio as shown on my screen. That means I need to zoom waay in to get the view to look correct on the layout. What gives? Is there some setting I'm missing or is this a bug?
       
      Here you see a screen shot of my camera (exactly as shown, with no toolbars turned on so it's the full CA window) and the view as sent to layout (again, cropped perfectly to show how the camera came through). Next I match the widths and put them side by side to show the difference. What accounts for this? I have been unable to figure it out.

      Hi 
      I am using x10.  I have a kitchen type that I will multiply many times and save by unit #. I need to have the unit # show up on my layout page for each plan that is saved. 
      Not sure how to save the units and have the info show up. 
      Thanks in advance!

      I am hoping someone can tell me how to handle this.  I have done all the framing, and using the project browser, sent all the Wall Details to a Layout page.  When I first did this, everything showed up perfect...The wall detail names on the walls in plan view, corresponding to the labels in the Layout.  
       
      Well, I made a couple of window changes, rebuilt floors and ceilings and now what I have is this: The wall detail numbers show up correctly in the plan view, but the layout shows: "Wall Layer 4 Viewed from outside".  I must be able to change the Views on the Layout to correspond with the plan view!
       
      HELP!!!!
       
      TIA
