I have created a 36x48 layout with several vector layers and a basemap in ArcPro; when I print it from a plotter, the text comes out as dots and the point features are black dots.  The road names on the basemap comes out as letters but not the correct letters.  If I remove the basemap the vector layers and text boxes print perfectly.  Anybody seen this before?  Is there a fix?

Are you printing directly from Pro? From ArcMap experience, printing directly from the application is inviting the devil.

Export to PDF (possibly flatten the PDF if that still doesn't work) or investigate other formats to suit your need.

If you are printing from PDF etc. the plotter may be having memory issues - settings in your print driver or physical options on the plotter maybe?

I finally got it to work, it seems to be a font issue.  When converting to PDF, I checked the "output as image" box and it prints fine now.  

Thank you for your help!
