    Missing Text / Outline Reply

    I'm really stumped.  I've created artworks a hundred times before and never experienced this problem.  I have set my artworks just like I have in the past.  I include my board outline and text at the bottom that describes which artwork you are viewing.  For some reason, the board outline and the text is not coming out on the gerber data and can't figure out what's going on.  I've tried viewing the file in CAM-350 and ViewMate with the same result so I'm pretty sure it's not the viewer.  I've included a zip file of screen shots describing what I'm seeing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A couple things to check.

    1) Does the INNER1 Film Record have an "Undefined line width" defined as "0"? (image provided shows the settings for the BOTTOM Film Record)

    2) Do you have a Photoplot Outline defined on Manufacturing / Photoplot_Outline which crops out the board outline and text.

    Hope this helps,
