Question about Corel Paint Shop Pro 9

Paint Shop Pro 9 Printer Selection (no options available)

I have multiple printer under Windows Vista that I can choose from other applications. When I attempt to print from Paint Shop Pro 9, only one printer (the default printer) appears and no options/alternatives are available.

I believe I installed the software when only one printer was defined. Is this just a matter of re-installing the software, or is there something that can be done within PSP without re-installing it.

Strange.

    This appears to be a known compatibility bug between PSP9 and Vista.

There is a workaround which will be suitable for those who use Print Layout in PSP instead of just Print.
With your image open in PSP, goto >File >Print Layout.
Now in the Print Layout screen, goto >File >Print Setup (or just click the Printer / Page Setup Icon).
The Print Setup window will now appear with just your default printer displayed. There should be a Print Setup button next to the Properties button, but it never appears in Vista. You can, however, still access it.
Just press 'Alt-P' and the small print setup dialog box appears, allowing you to choose a different printer!!! Paint Shop Pro 9 Printer Selection (no options ava - happy.gif

The only solution that appears to work in Windows 7 (and presumably Vista) is before running PSP9 change the default printer to the printer you want to print on. Load PSP9 and the printer shown will be your new default printer. A bit of a pain but it works for me.

Not helpful - I see the two buttons from a scan of a book, but this dialog box on my computer and presumably everyone else that has this problem is missing the "printers" button. I will keep looking for the solution...

    Well, sadly, there doesn't seem to be a fix for this. It is a Vista compatibility issue that Corel seems uninterested in fixing. And, for my money, even though I have been a loyal user for like 8 years, it may be time to move to photoshop. Here is a link to further discussion:

Try this:
open the file you want to print.
click on file at the top left hand side, then choose print from the menu.
a dialog box will open up. there will be 2 buttons on the top right , choose the one that says printer and click on it.
another dialog box will open up. If you click on the tiny arrow a drop down menu should open listing all of the printers which are installed on your computer.
If not check to see that the printer you want to use is still installed on your computer.
(start menu, control panel, open the printers and fax folder which will show all the printers currently installed on your computer. If the one you'd like to use is not installed use the software which came with your printer to do so.

    " there will be 2 buttons on the top right , choose the one that says printer and click on it"

    I have this issue too - the "printer" button just isn't there. Nothing. I only have one button that says "properties" but nothing else. I have 3 printers installed on this computer and they all work fine in other applications. The program worked perfectly before I upgraded to Windows 7

    I'm having the same problem. Upgraded my box from XP to WIN 7 and now PSP9.01 only shows the default printer with no option to choose another

Can't change printer in Corel Paintshop Pro


It sounds like this is a laptop because you mention different networks. If so, this is not a bug in the program. If you are completing a file on one network, choose the printer before you start. If you are changing networks, you need to remember to change the printer when you open a file. Use Print Preview to see if any adjustments are necessary.
This extra step is needed to have the flexibility of working with different printers,

No default printer???


Try re-installing Paint Shop Pro V8. You will have to uninstall it first. Because that is the way I have found that it reloads the program correctly. I have just had this problem today with my copy. I hope this works for you.
