Question about Mac Desktops
We have a Mac G3 computer running OS 9 that we print files on a Ricoh Aficio CL2000N; however, all of a certain, the print dialog box changed in appearance and when an Adobe file is sent to the Ricoh for printing, the Ricoh shows ''waiting'' and never prints, then the G3 usually freezes up. However, we can print a PageMaker file.
Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Ok, well, that sounds to me like you have a new version of Adobe Acrobat. And, well, the new version of Acrobat works with more and more options and bigger and more complex documents.... And.... well, your G3 and the Ricoh printer just can't handle these files.
So, what is the solution other than buying a new computer and a new printer, which would certainly solve your problem, ?
What I recommend is print pdf files as images, you will find this option in the print dialogue box, unfortunately, i don't have access to a Mac OS 9 machine to take snapshots to show you, but, if you snoop around the print dialogue options, I'm sure you'll find ( Print as Image ) and that feature really reduces the weight of the image you are sending to the printer.
