If I draw a line, a circle, and a component, only the component will print. It all shows up on the preview, but not on paper.

I have screwed with it (the settings) quite a bit trying to get it working, and am wasting a lot of time and paper.

Does anybody here have anything I could try? Thanks in advance.

It printed for me. What layer are the line and circle on? Which operating system and version of DipTrace are you using? What kind of printer?

I guess I didn't try hard enough. If I set the sheet to black they won't print. If I set the sheet to white they do. I hate white drawing sheets on computers.

I use a black background and have not, so far, had issues with printing shapes. Here are screenshots of my color setting dialogs.

Could you install a virtual PDF printer (if system doesn't have any PDF printer yet) and printout to PDF printer. Are there shapes in PDF file?

Schematic circles do not print for me either.

I have tried printing to paper via a Brother Laser printer, and I have also tried printing to PDF using three different virtual PDF printers, and the results are always the same - no circles.

I am running;

Mac OSX 10.9.5
DipTrace 3.0.0.2 (June 14, 2016)
XQuartz 2.7.11 (xorg-server 1.18.4)

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

My current workaround is to PRINT PREVIEW > save as BMP or JPG > open BMP/JPG in PREVIEW > export to PDF


Regards, M.
