Cannot print in 2005

Post by DZim » Wed Dec 26, 2007 10:28 am

I cannot get MS2005 to print any area I select. The program changes the location of the print window, and I'm stuck loading the drawing in 2004 just to print. Any idea how I can get around this snag?

What happens if you close 2005 and restart, open the job and try printing - does that allow you to print?
Are you in model or paper space?
Do you have 'Print only area within specified window' ticked? What is the setting of 'Print offset'?

In paper-space, sometimes the selected print area doesn't "stick", and often, the page offset settings don't "stick".
Usually, all it takes is to get into print settings a second time.

I "center" almost all of my printouts, and have to re-check the the "center page" on the advanced tab of "Print Settings" almost everytime (otherwise the output is offset as you describe).
