FS#2082 - File > Print / PDF Export: Handling of block references on non-plottable layer

QCadPro - MacOS Mojave (10.14.6)

Version: (3.24.3)
Build Date: Mar 16 2020
Revision: 6e718a8
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: x86_64
Compiler: Clang 10.0.0

In the attached .dxf file is a simple drawing (a wooden deck). In the layout space (of A3 size) there are two viewports (one of the frames and one with the decking).

In the left viewport a spurious enlarged part of the block “stolpe” (eng. column) has appeared in the exported PDF (not visible in either the layout nor the model space). See attached .PDF where it is clearly visible.

So it seems that the interaction of blocks with viewport triggers a bug.

The problem only seems to appear if a block with entities on plottable layers is placed on a non-plottable layer. In this case block "stolpe" has been inserted on layer "Guide" which is set to non-plottable.

As workaround, make layer "Guide" plottable or insert the blocks on a different layer that is plottable.

Thanks for the workaround. (The use of the non-plottable guide-layer for a normal block was non intentional.)
