Problems with Printing PDF Files

If you can open and view a PDF file, but it fails to print correctly (e.g., the printed output does not match what is on the screen), you may try the following:

  1. Right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac OS) on the link for the PDF file you need.
  2. Choose Save Target As (Internet Explorer) or Save Link Target As (Netscape).
  3. In the Save As dialog box, save the file on the Desktop or in a folder where you will be able to find it again.
  4. After the file download is complete, open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat or Reader.
  5. From the File menu, choose Print.
  6. In the Print dialog, click Advanced and choose the Print as image option.
  7. Click OK.

Note: When you print a PDF file as an image, it may take longer to print.
