Printing Bug

I came across with this issue from one user the other day. They have some interior elevations on the sheet that didn't come out as expected.

After printing it as PDF file, one of the interior views just showed up blank! What's interesting is the texts and grid lines showed but everything else disappeared.

I ended up reaching out to Autodesk and they suggested to try Raster Processing; and sure it did the trick. Using Raster Processing mode in the Print Setup was able to fix this issue. Usually raster mode is not needed unless you are printing with shadows, decal images or have render view as part of the document. This is one of the situations that this sheet had no such thing but will need raster mode to address the issue.
