Problem printing PDFs

melancholymiss, Nov 19, 12:57am
Sooo, my printing was printing fine and then recently i printed a pdf and all the L's were missing lol, then today i printed something and, well hardly any of the words printed at all lol.

Heres an example of what i should have http://tinyurl.com/bexpdfa and what i have http://tinyurl.com/bexpdfb

I've googled, and looks like a few people have issues, but there are not many answers.These are downloaded pdfs and some i have printed previously with no issues.

Any advice would be much appreciated :)

What program are you printing from? Try another one: Adobe Reader, Foxit PDF Reader, Sumatra PDF reader, PDF-XChange Viewer. (all have free versions)

Have you just tried printing it once? If so try again. PDFs are a fickle thing when it comes to printing. Sometimes I print them and all sorts of weird symbols will be in there, I try again and it's fine.

Would not hurt to restart your computer, also.

Thanks :)Yup i tried the same one more than once, it was exactly the same both times.One thing i printed came out with only pictures and no words lol
I'm using Adobe Acrobat, I'll give one of those other porograms a go, thanks :)
