Plan Set not printing properly
SoftPlan Version:
2016 Plus

My Plan Set pdf isn't printing everything that is showing up on my screen for a certain page. The items that aren't printing...but are showing on-screen....are my assembled floor walls. Here's a screenshot. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to show this clerestory in proper perspective with the house. The pic on the left is the Plan Set pdf. The pic on the right is the screen of the Plan Set page.

Dashed Lines

What method are you using to display the dashed lines of the floor below? If you use Overlay then they should show on the printed page.

Yes, I used Overlay. Is there

Yes, I used Overlay. Is there a place to adjust the settings of Overlay? I can't even select the overlay on the screen. What if I wanted to change it?

I was thinking maybe I needed to adjust a setting to allow to overlay to print in Plan Set but I can't even select it.

Overlay

No, there are no settings to change an Overlay. Overlays are either on or off. You can't select them on the screen but you can snap to them if you are moving or drawing objects. What if you wanted to change it? I'm not sure what you mean. An Overlay is just a dashed representation of the walls and beams included on the drawing that you are overlaying. Any changes to the original drawing will show in the Overlay of that drawing. I'm not sure why the Overlay is not printing. Anything that shows on the Page in the Plan Set should also print. If you can't sort it out email me and I'll give you my SoftPlan key# so you can share it with me and I can take a look.
