    Bluebeam PDF Printer- Text shifting

    We have a few users that from time to time the sheet number in the titleblock and the View name and some other text shifts to the right substantially making the pdf not acceptable. But the same user can print from the same project at other times and not get the issue. Anyone have any experience with this?

    I finished a large project in Jan using Revit 2018.3 and printing to Bluebeam Revu x64 Extreme v2017.0.40 for the first 1/2 of the project and the last 1/2 with v2018.4. Several thousand sheets of drawings printed with no issues. Sorry that I couldn't help

    You are not going crazy. I've never seen it before but one of our staff had this exact issue yesterday, using Revit 2018 (not bluebeam). Regardless of which pdf driver was used (adobe/biopdf/cutepdf etc), it would make some (not all) title block text get larger, like the width ratio had been turned up to 1.2 or something.
    Found an Autodesk forums post (can't find it now) that suggested a restart of the computer fixes the issue.
    As he was in another office and this was last night, I'm not sure he had restarted yet, but I will report back here later today when I find out.

    Yes restart fixes it, we think its a windows 10 issue or graphics driver issue. good to know we aren't crazy.

    Bump, no one know how to fix this, its spreading like a bad disease. I'm wondering if it was a recent windows 10 update
