Random lines showing up in layout that are not there in the model

Good morning,

Since updating SU Pro 2019 with the latest version, we are having a problem with random lines showing up in layout that are not in the model. The lines show up when I print layout, you cannot see them in layout when you are working on it.

Below is a screen shot of layout.

Below is the random line that shows up when I print.

I’ll see if I can upload the layout file.

Has anyone else run into this problem?

Here we go.

Well it looks like something is messed up but it’s not obvious where when you look at the SU file.


Me too!

Random models it seems - no apparent pattern.

Sometimes if I delete the viewport and re-import it gets rid of the random line.

I’ve been covering them up with lines and shapes…

This oddity has been reported before. I think it’s something the team has been working on. I could see it in the LO file when I opened it but I just selected the viewport and clicked on Vector again and the weird lines disappeared.

Out of curiosity I opened the SKP file and purged unused stuff. This went away.

That’s what we’ve been doing, masking them in layout but its too bad you have to print first to find these little buggers.

Just opened up a current problem project.

One of the LO viewports was actually showing a random line in LO.

I purged the SU model and the random line went away in the LO viewport.

But I’m still getting a random line that is not visible in the LO viewport and is showing in the exported PDF.

Yes, whether I directly print from LO or export, that’s when the lines appear. You just can’t see it in LO. Very strange.

Hmmm, I try printing that page again after I do what you did.

@DaveR I reopened that LO file and I actually saw the line in LO, then I purged everything like you did, and it no longer shows in LO but it is still there when I print that page.


There was someone recently another thread about this issue.

Maybe @trent or @colin could give an update on how it’s going with this particular issue.
