I get ready my paper space for plotting, I have a couple of dynamic views in place, with visual style of hidden line and some dimensions/texts in the paper space, if I choose to print to pdf (thru pdf.pltcfg), now in versión 08.11.09.833 SelectSERIES 4, automatically choose Rasterized. I don't choose this options often because:
In the paper space of MicroStation look like this:
But in the PDF:
No dimensions at all.
I did the test with SelectSERIES 3 and not problem:
What could be missing right here?
Is there any work around to fix this or I should keep with SelectSERIES 3?
Versions used for this:
Just for the record, when I choose a portion of the paper space to print, with a fence for instance, the dimensions are visible/printable.
Any hint to fix this, or perhaps to address to Bentley, will be much appreciated.
I do not recall there being an issue with dimensions in MicroStation SS4. Would it be possible to send me your data via a private email? As a workaround place your fence on top of the sheet and select "Fence" instead of "Sheet" under "Area:"
Following your suggestion:
Also for the record:
We received your data through the SR you filed with Bentley. We are in the process of investigating the issue, will post our findings.
FYI - the issue has been resolved by following the "Best Practices" wiki page on the Bentley Communities page - https://communities.bentley.com/other/old_site_member_blogs/peer_blogs/b/marc_thomass_blog/posts/abd-ss6-best-practices-cached-visible-edges?CommentId=865c816d-e4b4-4919-9621-b6517e7672c1
Good day and thanks for this reply. However this is not a fix or even more like a workaround. In situations that someone is working with dgn's, dwg's (and sometimes not even ACAD DWG) and IFC models, etc. you get to a point that the formats for levels and settings are not optimal for pur drawings, and one tool that becomes really handy is level overrides or even visual styles with diferent settings for references become handy, but if just one of those references have "Hidden Line" visual style, you get a lot of things not looking properly, for instance, on fonts ttf like Arial, is looking only the contour, if you deactivate the processing of text, then it does not respect settings on level overrides, if you go thru visual styles, then maybe some texts are not printed, and if you go thru paper spaces and have elements on same paper spaces, the the references is hidding elements on paper, this is just crazy because on SS3 everything was more simplier and flexible for this. Regarding performance, sorry to say but don't see that much the differences between cached or live.
