- We plotted the layout to a different plotter with the same results.
- We plotted the layout to a DWF and the images appear as expected.
- We plotted the layout from a different computer and it plotted fine.
At this point, we decided it had to be computer specific. We contacted DC|CADD and Mark Martinez recommended that we uninstall and reinstall driver, plotter, etc. before proceeding any further. We got the same results (everything but the image was plotting) after the reinstall.
So, now we're thinking maybe it's a memory issue. We checked the system settings and the /3GB switch was not enabled on the problem computer. We changed the System Startup settings so that the /3GB switch would be enabled upon boot, then we rebooted the system.
After the reboot, the resulting plot contains everything on the sheet including the two images.
After the plot worked, we checked the size of the tiff images. (Yes, I know, why didn't we do that at the beginning.) Both images were under 300 KB. Hmmm, sounds small enough to me, but hey, I'm not going to look this gift horse in the mouth.
So, SCORE ONE FOR THE /3GB SWITCH!
