A drawing contains TrueType® text objects that are displayed as filled in the plot preview. However, in the hardcopy output, the TrueType text objects are plotted as outlines and are not filled.


To ensure TrueType® text is filled when plotted, configure the following settings:

  • Set the FILL command to on.
  • Set the FILLMODE system variable to 1.
  • Set the TEXTFILL system variable to 1.
  • In the Plot dialog box, clear Hide Objects.
  • Turn off the Hideplot property of the viewport
    Note: In AutoCAD 2004, 2005, and 2006-based products, turn off Shadeplot > Hidden Property of Viewport.

If these program settings do not resolve the problem, update your Windows system printer driver.
