This happens when you have selected a PDF printer instead of the real Physical Printer for printing

a PDF printer is a software which converts any thing sent out like a document or file for printing into a PDF file tis is useful for saving data from files or majorly from websites and emails as a softcopy on your system.

next time on, when printing check to see that the selected printer on default is a Physical Printer (like HP or Cannon etc.) connected to your computer and you'll have your hard copies

hope could be of help, cheers

Tip

Reduce the file size of a PDF file


Sometimes when we scan a document and the output file is PDF the file size is too big which is very difficult to send as an email attachment. This also happens when you convert word documents into PDF format.

This guide assumes that Adobe Acrobat Professional or Standard is already installed on your computer for PDF conversion.

On your current PDF File click on File then select Print

On the Print window select Adobe PDF as the Printer Name then click on the Properties Tab

On the PDF Document Properties Window under Default Settings drop down, select Smallest File Size.

Click on OK on all open windows. This will start the conversion process. When it's finished this will prompt you to save the file. It is advisable to save the file in a different file name rather than replacing the original copy.

After the conversion you may compare the file size of the original file and the reduced PDF file. The reduced file can now be sent on email attachments easily.

Cannot print full page from email. It starts half way down the page and does not get the full message


Instead of printing directly from within the email, you might try saving the email (either under "save" or "export" in the menu) as a PDF file and then printing from that file instead. Sometimes this fixes the issue.

If this was helpful, please remember to leave me positive feedback!

Hi, I cannot print a pdf file or that kind of attachment. Only Word can print. Adobe error shows up and want to shut down the program for protection. I never had the problem before. Just started.


Is it a file that you created in pdf format, or is it one that you have had emailed or attempting to open from another source? Some pdf files have protection put on them by the file originator to avoid the file being changed/printed. Here are some tips to try to get them to print for you.
  1. Open your computer's Internet browser.

  2. 2

    Type www.a-pdf.com/security/a-pdf-rr.exe in the browser's URL box to access the PDF restriction converter "A-PDF Restrictions Remover."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" or "Return" key. Your Internet browser will access the site's PDF converter file. A dialog box will appear on your screen--"Opening a-pdf-rr.exe."

  4. 4

    Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer for running later--use this option if you using a slow connection like dial-up. The program will download and set up on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option.

    If saving the file to your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to save the file to. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system.

    You do not have to access the A-PDF Restrictions Remover website again once the file starts downloading or saving to your computer.

  5. 5

    Double click on the "a-pdf-rr.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option.

  6. 6

    Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning."

  7. 7

    Click "Next." Click on the circle by the wording "I accept the agreement." Click "Next."

  8. 8

    Select the directory where you want to save the "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" file. The default is your "C:\Program Files\A-PDF Restrictions Remover" folder. Click "Next."

  9. 9

    Click "Next," "Install" and then "Finish." A-PDF Restrictions Remover will start automatically.

  10. 10

    Navigate to the directory where the protected PDF file is located.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the PDF file name. Select "Remove Restrict & Save As."

  12. 12

    Select a location to save the converted PDF file to. Click "Save." If you want to change the PDF file's name, enter a new name in the box next to the wording "File name." The protected PDF is now converted to a unprotected one.

  13. 13

    Double-click on the converted file to open it.

  14. 14

    Select "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the unprotected, converted PDF file.

  15. Printing a Protected PDF By Taking a "Screen Shot"
  16. 1

    Open the protected PDF file2

  17. Press the "Alt" and "PrtScrn" keys together. The PrtScrn key is located on the upper right-hand side of your keyboard, if using a desktop computer keyboard. If using a laptop, the PrtScrn key is located above the "F10" function key.


  18. 3

    Open your computer's word processing program by clicking on the program's icon on your system's "Desktop" or from the "All Programs" menu.

  19. 4

    Press "CTRL" and "V" keys together to paste the screenshot into a blank document.

    If using a Mac, click "Edit," "Paste" from the main toolbar at the top of your word processing program.

  20. 5

    Click "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the PDF screenshot. If the protected PDF file contains more than one page, press the "PgDn" key and repeat steps 2 through 5.

My printer won't print ADOBE files, but prints all word documents


I believe you are misunderstanding what you're "telling" the computer to do. You are telling the computer (I assume in Microsoft Word, but perhaps elsewhere) to generate an electronic document in PDF format. (I believe PDF stands for Portable Document Format)
It uses a printing metaphor because like a paper copy, the PDF file is designed for people to read, not edit the document you have created. Also, some PDF-making software methods involve pretending to be a printer, which allows the user to make a PDF file in any program that would normally only output your work to a printer.
Most people, when wanting to print a PDF document onto paper, open it with Adobe's Acrobat Reader (which is free software) and print the document from there. For sharing a document that you want no changes to, this is a superior option to sending people an MS Word .doc (or .docx) file, which does not have its information "locked" onto virtual pages in the file.

I hope this helped!

I can't print pdf files from the internet, I have to "save as"1st


Sometimes the file name assigned to a pdf is not compatible with our printer's memory. For example, if the file name includes brackets [ ] or other punctuation, or is very long, the printer won't recognize it. One print job that stalls will hold up the entire print queue, so delete your job from the queue.
First, look at the file name displayed in the print server's list of print jobs. The same file name also appears in the top blue bar of your Acrobat pdf display. Are there brackets, per cent signs, or other punctuation marks in the file name?

Won's print pdf files


Trouble with the HP Laserjet printed output may be solved by using the following settings (or similarly named ones): "Use raster Graphics" (instead of "Use vector graphics"). This may fix the problem of "reversed" text (white on black background) not printing, as well as other problems. "Download TrueType Fonts as bitmap soft fonts" (select "bitmap" instead of "outline" or "graphics"). This may remove the overlapping of text on the printed document. "Graphics dithering" select "coarse" or "fine" (instead of "none"). This selection may improve the quality of images contained in the document. You can find all these settings in your printer properties. Go to File, Print, click Preferences, in Printing Preferences, click one by one all the top options, and change one of the top solutions, one at the time, checking your printing output. Always check if you have the latest version of Adobe Reader Program. If not download the latest version from Adobe, it's free. Is this the first time that you have the problem? or with the same printer (HP 4si), did you were able to print PDF files in the past?
