Printing problem

Postby Chandi Kornfeld » Wed, Aug 17 2011, 9:55AM

I am having some printing problems with ecabinet. On my screen all the lines are there but, then when it prints it is missing some lines. I have tried increasing my line weight but still does the same thing.
Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

Yes I have that problem frequently but I have no solution....
I think the real solution is to fix the LDE up - but that project begins with a hand grenade and pouring a new foundation...
Sorry that's not any help,

Chandi,

What lines are not printing? (there is an issue right now with display objects not showing in the LDE) Many times this is more of a printer problem than an LDE problem. Make sure you have installed the latest drivers for your printer. You may need to use a higher quality print setting on your printer.

Post a job that you are having trouble with so I can see how it prints.

Kerry,

On all of our jobs there is always some sort lines missing and we have to fill them in by hand. I find that its is mostly the drawer lanes and the bottom of the cabinet lines.

Chandi,

I really do feel that this is a printer problem and not the LDE.

Try updating printer drivers and work from there.

It would help to look at one of your jobs that doesn't print properly. You can email it to kerry@kerryfullington.com if you don't want to post it.

I get that too Kerry. Doesn't matter which printer I use. The lines are missing even in print preview. I would love to have a solution. I use the LDE alot, and I've messed with the line enhancement to no avail.

Al,

Rick emailed me that if he skews his drawing by 1 degree it then prints properly with all lines showing. Does this work for you also.

It might be interesting to find what make and type printer everyone is using. I print to a Dell 2130 Laser printer using XP Pro and seem to have no problems printing from the LDE.

It might not be related to the printer type Kerry. This shows up in print preview. The view I sent you was a Primo PDF. Al, what operating system are you running?.... We should try to find a common bond to this issue so we can finally put down our pencils. :)

Rick,

The common denominator is what I was looking for in the printer and print drivers. I am not savvy enough to know for sure if the print preview is generated by the printer and it's associated files or by the operating system or by the eCabinets software. I think it is generated by the printer.
