I have a slight problem that I hope the Adove experts out there may be able to
help me with.
Some time ago we switched to PDF to send all our documents for printing. We
installed the relevant printer driver for the printer that the printer was using
so the layout wouldn't vary and use distiller to create the PDFs. Everything
was fine but we've recently had a manual back with a few drawings with lines
missing. Checked the PDF and the lines are there but for some reason they're
not being printed. Checked with the printer and he's not updated his drivers
without telling us and is as puzzled as we are - currently looking into it.
Even stranger is that on drawing is a copy of one on the previous page with a
relay changed from NO to NC and it prints fine!
