    I use color by layer as a standard. If you use color by entity you might try assigning color 255 to the wipe out.
    this works for me as well.

    Put the wipeout on color 255 (or the layer the wipeout is on).

    Just make sure the .ctb is set to print "object color".

    This solution works for the "blackout wipeouts"

    I have this issue printing to our Oce TDS450 from Adobe reader 8.0. However, if I click the 'Advanced' button in Adobe's print dialogue, then select 'Print as image', the pdf prints correctly.

    We just found another solution today as well. Be sure Adobe is set to print document, NOT document & markups.

    Were using AutoCAD 2009 and plotting to dwg to pdf.
    Using Adobe 9.0 we don't get the solid black where we used a wipeout anymore, but we do get the wipeout outline.

    I have turned the wipeout frame off, changed it's color to 255, plotted from Adobe using just document, plotted from Adobe using print as image.

    We still get the outline. But hey...it's not solid black anymore.

    Are you on subscription? If so have you downloaded Bonus Pack 2 for AutoCAD? This gives you a better version of AutoCAD's built in PDF printer.

    Just for your information: the "print as image" can generate a bad quality printing. However, the new release of Oce tds450 has a new setting within postcript settings "PDF wipe out optimization".
    This functionnality allows avoiding to print the black area. The wipeout is so correctly printed.

    Have you tried using the DWG TO PDF.pc3 option? It lacks a little bit of quality, however, I don't have the issues with wipeout.

    When the AutoCAD WIPEOUT command is used and PDFs are created, solid black hatching may result. To plot the PDF without the solid hatching, use Adobe reader, click on the print command and click on the advanced button (bottom left) the toggle on “Print as image”.

    I've met issue too.
    After research on many CAD website. I have a way to resolve it. (I think it's better than change Advance in Acrobat printer). But you have to use it before export dwg file to pdf file.

    I wrote a lsp file. It'll select all wipeouts in the drawing, change them to the layer (has name "wipeout") which color is 255. And then wipeouts never be black on paperprinted.

    To textmask. In fact that is group with two element objects (a text and a wipeout behind the text). Before use my lisp, I have to change the Options/Selection modes (uncheck in "Object grouping"). Else the text will be changed to "wipeout" layer to (255 color) and disappread when print on paper. That is inconvenient, but I haven't find the solution.

    That's my source lsp file:

    Code:
    ;wipeout tools
    ;searches through drawing and change all wipeouts to WIPEOUT layer, which is 255 color
    ;will not delete nested wipeouts
    ;created by Hai Pham. Thanks for Alan Thompson's ideas
    ;6.29.10
    (defun c:wipeC (/ wipe_list )
    	(command "-layer" "_new" "wipeout" "_color" "255" "wipeout" "")
    	(if (setq wipe_list (ssget "X" (list (cons 0 "wipeout"))))
    		(progn
    			(command "change" wipe_list "" "_properties" "_layer" "wipeout" "" "")
    			(princ (strcat "\n" (rtos (sslength wipe_list) 2 0) " wipeout object(s) have be changed to WIPEOUT layer"))
    		);progn
    		(princ "\n No wipeout objects found.")
    	);if
    (princ))
