I am experiencing a very annoying phenomenon at the moment when trying to plot an A0 PDF Plot and would be interested to hear if anyone has had a similar problem and whether there is a solution or workaround.
I have exported a map consisting of vector layers with raster background in A0 Format to pdf with ArcGIS 10.3.1. The exported PDF dokument looks fine when opened in PDF Reader. When I plot it with our HP T1300 plotter using the HPGL Driver I can see a straight diagonal line crossing through the whole map. This line does not exist in the sde Featureclass!
I used to have similar problems with ArcGIS 9.3.1 and a simple geometry check and repair would usually solve this. As this the data comes out of an MSSQL SDE the check/repair geometry tools is not available for use. Apparently the geometries are already repaired by importing into the sde.
Is this a common problem and are there any tried and tested solutions?
