Question

Why isn't my PDF printing properly?


Answer

When large PDF documents, or ones that have been edited with Adobe Acrobat Pro are printed, sometimes the text becomes corrupted or unreadable by the printer, and may also cause slow printing times between each page. To resolve this:

  1. Open the document in Adobe Acrobat .
  2. Select File > Print in the top left area of the taskbar.
  3. Select the Advanced tab.

     
  4. In the advanced settings, click the Print as Image option and select OK.

     
  5. Your PDF should now print properly.
    Once ticked, this option will be the new Default Setting and will remain the default option until you uncheck the print as image box.
