Cannot print from Adobe Reader
Posted 27 August 2011 - 02:10 AM
Out of the blue I stopped being able to print from Adobe Reader. The print dialog box comes up, I click ok and nothing happens. I can print other documents no problem. I installed new printer driver. I un-installed and re-installed adobe reader. The problem persists. Any ideas anyone?

A fix for an older version may work for you:
The solution I stumbled on was to click the page icon on the left hand side under the print icon. Thumbnail images of the document are displayed. I selected the pages I wanted from the thumbnail images and hey presto they printed out.
Found this here: Adobe Reader 9.1 Cannot print - No pages were selected

I tried the fix there, but it didn't work.

Go into Adobe Reader X and choose Edit Preferences General. You will notice there is a box ticked next to Enable Protected Mode at start up. To print pdfs from within IE again all you have to do is untick this box. It solved the problem for me. This Protected Mode was a security enhancement that came in with version X. You may wish to check with your IT department that they are comfortable with you doing this but it does solve the problem.
If that doesn't help, your best bet would be to post in the Adobe Reader forum.
