Q - question

AutoCAD mask not printed properly.

A - answer My printer (plotter) prints texts and dimensions without background masks - but print preview shows the masks properly applied.

In your printer settings (PC3) switch off the option "Line merge".

Some older non-HP printers and plotters (their drivers) are not processing masks properly.
