PRINTING TIFF problem

Post by rwhatman » Tue Oct 18, 2011 4:49 am

I have printed drawings that had tiff images, today it wont print. I am in paper space and not Model space. Is that the problem.
Tiff image was cliped , image in a image layer, Print is on. The frame of the picture does print. This was the problem in the past. If you
turn off the frame then it wont print.

Using service pack 2 and not 3

Could not use the help desk as I could not log in there. Posted here

Hi, there is a detailed article in our helpdesk which discusses why raster images sometimes won't print, along with several tips.

Hi Brian
I figured out the problem. The tips very informative, but not helpful.
Lets make it simple for me to remember for the next time.
If the tif file size is over 500 KB it may not print.
When I croped the drawing it went from 7,000 KB to almost 8,000KB

The image was resize to 250 KB when saving, and I had no Problem Printing it.

Thanks
