PB 2014-005 Gradient Colors For Pipes Printing Incorrectly on FLO-Sheet Reports

Bulletin #: 2014-005

Date: 12-10-2014

Category: 3

Program affected: PIPE-FLO Professional 14 and Flow of Fluids 14

Build numbers affected: 14.0.32169

Approved by: JB

A print out (or the saved PDF file) of a FLO-Sheet report is not displayed correctly when using Color Gradients. This can manifest itself in two ways: either as a disproportionately heavy line weight when sent to a printer or PDF driver as printer, or by not showing the gradient on the pipe at all when saving directly as a PDF.

All of the following conditions must be met:

  • The active color gradient must result in pipes being colored.
  • The FLO-Sheet Report must be sent to a printer or save as a pdf.


There is currently no work around for this issue.
