Surface fills for walls, slabs and roofs will not show in the 3d hidden line print or pdf's after downloading version 20?
All previous versions this was not a problem. What is the fix for this?

Hi, I have done a quick test based on your description, but in the case that I tried things do seem to be working...attaching the image. Please specify more exactly what you are trying to achieve and with what settings! Thanks

Hi Katalin,
Here is a 3d image showing hardwood floor and tile floor slabs. I can not get the fills to show when I try to print or make a pdf of the image?[/img]

making a jpg is no problem, the issue is making a pdf or just printing to my desktop printing and having the files show.
This has never been a problem in previous versions. There must be some setting that I need to change.
Thanks for your help.

Hi!
You are right that the "file/save as PDF" looses the vectorial fills,
However, if you save a view, then a layout and a PDf to the publisher, the PDF goes through fine. (see attached) However, we will enter the "save as" problem as a bug. Thanks, k

Katalin,
Thank you for looking into this issue for me. Very frustrating as I have used this feature of printing the 3d screen for many years to help describe my projects.
How long do you think it will take to get this bug updated?
Aloha, Rich

Hi, we have checked and this problem does not appear in higher builds, we were not able to reproduce it in build 4512. So keep your eyes open for the next update:)
