I don't see that it is possible. The SMT tools themselves won't let in an import. The programing or tagging would have to be done by you.

Why Can't I print documents?

What application are you printing from?

Are you trying to print a PDF with a lot of scanned images or embedded content? Large PDFs can bog down printing.

Try to find a simple text-only PDF (no graphics or scanned stuff) with only a few pages and print it.

Some third party PDF generators do not make clean PDFs. They are malformed and can cause issues when printing.

Hi please help? My HP all in one deskjet f380 only prints certain documents, It starts as if its going to print, moving back and forth and then just stops and nothing is printed. The print job dissapears...

Try if one of these solutions help you.
1. Shut down you printer, wait a few seconds, start it again and try to see if you document is printing.
2. Install the printer again on your computer. This time, if possible use an other USB port.
3. If you can print PDF, you can try and print your document after you mad a PDF.

Prints PDF documents VERY slowly (4-5) per page

The actual issue you will find that its not so much the actual printing part of the process that is slow, its actually the spooling to the printer that takes the time.
Does your printer support PostScript printing ? (PostScript is a printing & imaging standard used by many printers) To find out if your printer does indeed support this either refer to your manufacturers documentation or perform a test page and look to see if you have a PostScript enabled option.
If your printer does support PostScript, make sure you are using its PostScript printer driver, most of the time we generally use PCL drivers, so simply change this.

If you find your printer does not support PostScript there are a few other tweaks we can implement to increase printing speed.

Firstly we can force PDF files to be printed as graphics as opposed to text, to do this launch your chosen PDF viewer, select Print > Advanced > Print as image
Lower the print resolution, if we lower the print resolution most of the time the difference is very small, but it can reduce the actual print size of the document by up to 300%, which can greatly decrease printing times.
Make sure you are using the latest version of any print drivers or your chosen PDF printing program, normally Adobe Acrobat.
If the printer only has a small amount of memory if possible add more, if possible install a PostScript SIMM.
Check the amount of ram your computer currently has, check memory usage from task manager when printing to ascertain usage

Printing VERY slow for PDF documents on DP-8045

well if you really needed a pdf printing concern, you may add an option which is Multi Page Description Language Controller Module. the post script printing language will be activated and you won't have to wait for the computer to process the pdf document on a gdi format (microsoft). what's more is that your mac computer can also directly print to the dp-8045.

that's it

HP Laserjet 1200 prints pdf documents slow

I had the same problem for printing pdf documents too slow with HP Laserjet 1200 :

Here's the fix: Open a pdf document go to File > Print> Advanced> check the box Print as image, use 300 DPI...that should do it.

When you print on the PDF, before you will start printing check the settings of the printer. You can see the printer named? find the printer you are using.

Printing PDF files

I had this problem after I had fixed a problem printing from Quicken. I was able to print from Quicken by changing the print option in Windows -- mine was set to "Spool documents" and I changed it to "Print directly from printer" -- the advice I was given was to change it from whatever it was set at to the other option. For printing a PDF file, I changed it back to "Spool documents" and it allowed me to print the PDF file. Try this and see if it works for you -- click the Windows Start button and select Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on the selected printer and select Properties. In the properties window look for a setting to print directly to printer or spool documents -- mine was under the Advanced option. Try the option not currently selected -- in my case, I changed it back to Spool documents with Begin printing immediately -- and then try to print a PDF file. It looks like I will have to toggle back and forth when I am printing from Quicken and when I am printing a PDF file. Hope this works for you.
