When I try printing an IRS form (PDF) I get a <blank page>. I also get a blank screen when I Print View the document. The document itself appears fine on my screen.

My printer works fine printing WORD documents.

I seem to recall having this problem before; and it was fixed by a very simple action. But I can't remember just what that action was. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

FWIMBW: I am using an XP pc and the printer is a Dell 720 jet printer.

When ready to print, click the printer icon in the Adobe Reader toolbar, not File >> Print in the menu bar.

phillipcorcoran: Using the Adobe toolbar icon as you suggested resulted in a blank page. But when I also checked the Dell's Properties\Print Color as Black and White box I was able to print fine. Thanks for your help.
