Illustrator: Disappearing paths on export


Question

I'm having issues exporting graphics with some of my lines disappearing. I'm a complete novice to illustrator, so sorry if this is something really basic.

The image should look like this: How it should look

Unfortunately, it is exporting like this: enter image description here

Thanks if you are able to help! Ps. I noticed it does the same thing if I open the flattener preview.

When I am exporting a graphic from Illustrator, I tend to be quite cautious and make sure that everything is converted to paths in case anything is lost. It looks like only the 'second' line markers (around the circumference) that are really missing; how did you make these?

If they are all individual rectangles copied rotationally from the center, using the Rotate tool, then you shouldn't be losing any of them. If they are all individual 1px strokes, or if it is a 1px circular path with dots/dashes (constructed under the Stroke menu), then you might have trouble with exporting these.

If not, please let me know how you made the second markers so I can offer better assistance. :)
