This is assuming you mean Adobe Acrobat:

I have worked in a University and now work in a large state agency and have found that this can occur when people accidentally print to document instead of to a printer. I know it sounds silly, but please give it a go:

  • Try using the print icon will not print adobe documents, prints other - print.jpg on the Acrobat tool bar (rather than your browser's print function). On the print dialog box that appears, make sure that the option to "Print to file" is unchecked.
  • If print icon is grayed out, it may mean that the document's security prevents printing.
If this does not work, please give me some additional information (such as which product/version you are using and what kind of document you are trying to print) and I will try my best to assist.

Hope this helps.

If you are refering to PDF documents, it may be the document. There are embedded conditions which can be placed on a PDF which restricts access. One of those options is to not print the document. Check the properties of the document from within adobe reader. You should find the conditions placed on the document there.

My printer HP6960 will print word documents, but when I try to print pdf's the 6960 is not one of the optional printers. What do I need to do to configure adobe on my computer??


Make sure your 6960 is set as default printer.
sometimes when you want to print PDF it will ask if you want to print as word document, try that as well.
can you right click on PDF to select printer?
Last look at Adobe properties notice if in Setup for Adobe allows you to select default printer.

How To Add Page Numbers to Prints / Copies on a Sharp Copier


This is a simple question that I am often asked, and I decided to put together a little guide on how to add page numbers in various programs/applications as well as from the copier's touch screen. Originally I thought this was something that could be dictated from a Sharp print driver, but it's not. It's accomplished by adjusting the settings of the actual document before you print it out.

Print Page Numbers Onto Copied Documents

1. On the Home screen, touch Copy

2. On the Copy screen, touch Others at the bottom-left
write_tip-smf2r4tpyjjq4h3ju4xuhwdx-5-2.png

3. On the Others Screen, touch Stamp
write_tip-smf2r4tpyjjq4h3ju4xuhwdx-5-5.png
4. On the Stamp screen, move to the Page No. tab, then choose the location of the page where you want the page number. You can also choose the pattern or text style that you want the page number to be on the left side of the menu.

write_tip-smf2r4tpyjjq4h3ju4xuhwdx-5-9.png

5. Touch OK. Your copies will have the page number stamped in the position you chose.

Printing Page Numbers from Microsoft Word or Excel on a Windows PC

1. Open your document
2. Once you're ready to print the document, move to the Insert Tab, and choose Page Number, then choose the position where you'd like the page number printed, and the type/style of the numbering.
3. Your print outs will now have the page number printed on them.

Printing Page Numbers from Adobe Acrobat / Adobe Reader

First of all, Adobe Reader cannot add page numbers to PDF print outs. It's a READ ONLY tool incapable of editing documents. You'll need either Adobe Acrobat Pro, or software similar to what BatesNumberer.com offers.
There is a great video on tv.adobe.com that details how to add page numbers via Adobe Acrobat.

In Conclusion

Make the necessary changes to your document to add page numbering before you print it, or before you copy it. There are a ton of other great tutorials for Sharp copiers/printers at www.youtube.com/equipmybiz

How can i print an adobe document


If you mean an Adobe PDF document then you can view and print it from the free Adobe reader program available from Adobe's website. If you've already tried this and are not successfully the PDF file may be locked to prevent printing it. You can't remove the lock in Adobe Reader but you could try printing a screen shot of each page.

I want to print pdf files but the mesage "unable to start print job. Is printer available?" apeares. i have adobe acrobat 8 . i can print this document with another computer with the same adobe...


go to start...
control panel...
printers and hardware (or something like that where your printer is listed.)

Double click on your printer and the document queue window opens

Now go to file, right click and check if the 'use printer offline' mode is checked. Uncheck that and you should be good to go.


Otherwise there could be a problem in the USB port of that computer. Try and connect the printer directly to USB and not through an extension.

WHEN I AM TRYING TO PRINT THE PDF FILE , I AM GETTING DIFFERENT MARGINS COMPARED TO ORIGINAL PDF FILE.SOME PRINTER IT IS ACTUAL AND SOME PRINTER IT IS DIFFERENT.HOW TO RECTIFY SUCH PROBLEM.KINDLY...


Acrobat reader scales pages on printing, depending on the printer and its driver. By default, Acrobat Reader will use one of the scaling options.
Before printing the PDF document be sure that you select the right kind of paper size such as A4, Letter and B5 which will be printed. Paper size is defined in the Document Setup dialog box for the document.
To print the document without different margin problem:
- Open the Acrobat Reader’s Print dialog box (Choose File > Print).
- Choose “None” from the “Page Scaling” drop-down list. (It will not change until you change it again).
- Then click “OK” to print the document.
This may solve your problem.
