Slow Printing under Adobe CS3 in OS X 10.4 environment

After upgrading from Adobe Creative Suite CS to CS3, printing has slowed down tremendously on my computer. It takes 30min or so to print a document that would come out within 30 seconds on an HP Laserjet. Does anybody else experience a slow down with their 4N after upgrading to CS3? Are there alternate printer drivers I could try as a possible work-around?

    Printing to PDF from Office 2008 is tremendously slow. 250k presentation takes hours (had to let it run overnight). PDF settings are 'standard' as per the factory stadards. This is CS3 on Mac OSX 10.5.2 w/ intel core 2 duo and 2G ram (MacBook).

    This appears to be related to CS3... if you print with CS2 your performance will come back. I suspect it has to do with the direct support of PDF in 10.3 printing subsystem

I had the same issue with 3 users and was able to solve it with a really easy fix. Set the dock to hide itself. I know it sounds weird, but there's a new print progress bar added to the CS3 icons, and that seems to be where the problem is caused. I'm assuming you have an Intel Mac?
