Hi All

I have a problem in  that when I save a drawing as PDF, then print, a hidden graphic that does not exist on my drawing shows up (as well as my current work).

Any hints on how to get rid of this?

With out knowing which areas your Saving as PDF from, nor how you have the Layers setup .....

If layers are Locked or Read only .... Then check what items are on there ... (Untick lock & Read only)

Try the following ...
Model Space >>> EDIT / SELECT ALL >>> See if this brings up any hidden items.

If your in Paper Space >>> Copy the paper space >> and in the new page ... Start deleting items till you find it.

Thanks Mike
I solved it  by selecting all visible entities individually in Model space then shifting them to a different x location. The invisible graphic was left behind.  It is most odd as I never drew the invisible graphic that only shows up in the PDF copy. I have had this happen before.
