I have created a plat map for my job. Problem is, I have multiple layers for advertisements, a map, my rulers, & borders. I have been trying to print this map for 2 days & it will NOT print any layers besides my advertisment layer. I have tried to change every print setting I possibly can & have been trying to scour the internet looking for a solution. So what I am getting is a sheet full of ads from businesses, but nothing else that I have put on this map. Im going crazy, please help!!!
Two possible reasons could be these:
Have you already attempted to click on the layer and open 'layer options' and checked to see if the 'print' box is checked?
Have you checked the file to ensure you have no overprints turned on on that artwork that is not showing up? this should be under the 'Appearance' window, but you may need to check each element individually, as it will only showcase the items that have had it selected, not necessarily a group of items. A quick glance that may help is to turn on and off the view option 'overprint preview'. If the image changes slightly (darkens/lightens in parts) this is the likely cause.
I had the same problem... Check each individual elements opacity! (Make sure you're looking at the Appearance window.)
