Black Spot Printing On My Elevations

Recommended Posts

When I went to print elevations from a layout the print comes out black. The elevations appear fine in the layout window, but when I print it turns the elevation black and further investigations makes it appear as though it is a black spot over the elevation, but only when printed.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Does turning Line Weights on/off affect the "black spot"? - If so, find whatever object is in the very middle of the "black spot" and open it's Spec dialog and check to see if you have the Line Weight for it set to be unusually high.

I see a huge dark gray "fill" covering your elevation in the PDF you attached.  I see it in my PDF reader/editor before even trying to print anything. It looks like perhaps you have something in your layout causing the problem.  Maybe something on page zero?  Can you attach the plan and layout that you're using?

In LO, can you click on the edge of where that dark area is showing up in your PDF's and get whatever that is to be selected?  If you can, your detective work should be much easier.

Athenian CAD- you may be on to something.... the line wieght button does effect the appearance. It seems to appear only in the section view set. 

Thank you... I was able to pinpoint the problem to the linewieght of the material for the walls. Great advice thank you again
