Recently we had Xerox printers installed and we could not get the transparancy to play nice with the printer, printing a small strip up the side of the page. We have now found a solution to the problem and after installing PS drivers and changing the settings on the driver page under the PC3 we use to the settings noted below all works fine. Thank you to placidrefining for their solution, which can be found on the following page. Whilst they note that this works with a 7970 printer, we have found that it works with our model as well.
I have posted the images below from that post here for reference.
We had new printers in today, they were Xerox machines. They are quiet neat but not particularly useful when printing from AutoCAD. The reason why? Because for some reason AutoCAD and the Xerox drivers do not play nice with each other when printing with transparency.
When printing with transparency checked in the plot dialog the Xerox printers just print a small section of the page, about a 5th. Without that checked all is good.
The reason seems that AutoCAD prints vectors normally but when transparency is checked is prints rastors. For some reason this does not play well with the Xerox.
On this post on the second page are some settings but they are not on my driver version. I will investigate some options and update if I find a solution with the newer drivers.
