Facing problems printing Adobe files? First, check what version of Adobe Reader is being used. It is advisable to download the latest and most current version. This is available at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html?promoid=BUIGO.
For printing PDF files or Adobe Portable Document Format files, a lot depends on the type of printer that is being used. A number of PDF files may not print correctly, until you select the Print as Image option (this is in the printer dialog box). Using this option, the document may take a couple of minutes to print.
PDF documents take up a considerable amount of printer memory. To illustrate this, if a printer has just 1 MB of total memory, and the printer has been set up for high quality printing, reversed text blocks might print with no message given by the printer, in solid black. If extra memory is not on-hand, download the entire file and then print just a few pages at a time. If the PDF document is still not printing properly, use the ’shrink to fit’ option.
To be brand specific, if problems persist with an HP LaserJet, change the settings to the following:
- Instead of vector graphics, use raster graphics. This should fix the problem of reversed text, among others.
- To remove the overlapping of text on printed document, use bitmap fonts as against graphics or outline.
- To improve the quality of images in your document, use course or graphics dithering, instead of using none.
Finally, it’s advisable to save the file to the disk and then proceed to open it in Adobe Reader. By doing this, bug can be avoided that the Reader may cause while trying to access the PDF file directly from the internet.
