Hi,

for some reason, when printing a drawing, some although most line start/end "arrows" are slightly off the line end point which looks weird.

In the drawing view the alignment seems correct.

Any thoughts on this?

Regards.

Hello hatch

Can you post a picture or smaple file?
Did you print to paper or to a file?

Was the drawing scaled to fit a specific paper size?

What version 9,10 and what build ?

Hi Jason,

The PNG image is now attached to the original post.

Build and version: 10.0.5 (1359) @ macOS 10.13.4

Prior to printing, the drawing had been fitted and centered from within the Page Layout editor.

Everything else to default.

Regards.

Hello Hatch

I checked windows build 1359 and there is no misalignment on printed output. So this might be specific to mac. But I do not have the exact setup you printed your drawing to.

What size paper
Is it scaled to fit smaller or bigger?

Can you post or email me the file? Might be how it is converted into Mac screen coordinates if Jason does not see it on Windows.

Hi Jason,

did you observe that the misalignment starts after the 2nd row of line endings?

Yes, I tried to build a quick test, but it might be better to try the actual file on windows as well.

This should now be corrected in 1370. The circle arrow head style was updated to use more precision when printing on Mac.
