    Angry Viewport is transparent in print preview

    I have one small viewport laid over a larger viewport on a sheet. Both viewports are set for "hidden line". This looks fine in normal sheet view because the small viewport is an opaque patch over the larger one - as intended. However in print preview (and printing itself) this small viewport becomes transparent/wireframe. Is this meant to happen???? Thanks.

    Unlike AutoCad, viewports do not print, and I'm unsure if you're able to overwrite this.

    Philip, you might want to try turning your hardware acceleration off and see if that resolves your issue.

    I found another issue with views not showing up. Need to switch from vector processing to raster processing in the settings dialog box in the print setup dialog box.
