Why can't I print connectors properly?

If you are having problems printing connectors in Visio, there may be several reasons why:

  • Are your connectors on a nonprinting layer? On the Home tab, click Layers > Layer Properties, and then make sure the appropriate check boxes under Print are selected.

  • Did you format the connectors with dashed line patterns? Some printers can't print dashed line patterns. Try a solid line pattern.

  • Have you tried making the line weight heavier on the connectors? Some printers can't print faint lines.

  • Have you tried printing to a different printer? Your printer may not be set up correctly.

  • Have you tried various printer settings? Printer setting options vary widely. See the documentation that came with your printer.
