Again, since the latest Creo 4.0 M090 upgrade, the system is not reading or recognizing the print.pcf file. I have the printer specific .pcf file that I have used for years for my HP CP2025 Color Laserjet. Now when printing the geometry lines and format/title block lines print heavy (obscuring small details) and all dimensions and text are in fine lines. I have checked the config.pro to make sure everything is pointing to the correct places. I even took the .pnt file and set all lines to 1 without any change. We also have a Toshiba E-Studio 167 with it's own .pcf file and . pnt file it has the same problem. Any ideas as to the problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The <printer> .pcf and the .pnt files are located on a the local machine. I have called into PTC support to see if they can figure it out.
I have found the issue. The line in the config.pro “Use_8_pens” was set to “no”. I changed it to “yes” and it works fine. I have been using PRO/E since release 6 and have never used that line (even when we had a true pen plotter). Now both of our printers and working fine. Would never have thought to set that as I never had to use it.
