If the Print as Image suggestion doesn't work, you can try the following:

  1. Try running the Repair command from under the Help menu.
  2. Update to the very latest point version of Acrobat or Reader.
  3. Try temporarily turning off Protected Mode/View under Edit > Preferences > Security.
  4. Try uninstalling then reinstalling.

If you are using Adobe Reader/Acrobat and this happens to a specific PDF file, try the "Print as Image" option. Click the Advanced button in the Print dialog box to find this option. Maybe that specific PDF is not well formed.

You can also visit this "Troubleshoot PDF printing | Acrobat, Reader" page:http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-pdf-printing-acrobat-reader.htm

What operating system are you using?

Welcome to the Acrobat Answers site. You're on your way! It won't take you many more points to reach the next level: Participant. And as you accumulate more points, you're also building your reputation with the community and with AcrobatUsers.com.

First let me state that this is my solution on a Macintosh running 10.7.5 and Acrobat Pro X (with all the latest updates).


This problem started for me just this last weekend. I have been to every so-called solution that I could find via a Google search and NONE of these "solutions" even by the self-tagged "experts" work. PERIOD!


I decided to follow one suggestion to install Acrobat Pro 9. However, instead of uninstalling Acrobat Pro X first, I left it installed.


During the initial startup of Acrobat 9 after installation I was offered the option of installing an Extra feature called Adobe PDF Printer which allows me to "Create Adobe PDF files from any application by printing to Adobe PDF Printer". I opted in to that extra.


Once Acrobat Pro 9 had started I tested it using one of the PDF files that had failed to print with the dreaded "No pages selected......" error messages. THE FILE PRINTED AS EXPECTED!


I then decided I would uninstall Acrobat Pro X, but on a whim decided to try to print the same PDF file that had just printed using Acrobat Pro 9 one more time. IT PRINTED!


All I can figure out is that somehow selecting the option to have Acrobat Pro 9 install the option for allowing other applications to create a PDF repaired something within the Mac operating system. Just a guess.


Hope this helps someone.

The solution of printing as image worked for me, but SLOWED DOWN the printing dramatically, almost doubling the time for the computer and printer to process the job and print it.

The link on Print Troubleshooting in the answer below is no longer valid. I found the similar page for Acrobat 9, but could not find one for Acrobat X or XI.

This comes up every now and then and has something to do with content in the pdf file. Certain types of image and text combinations is my best guess. I see it most often when printing a pdf that has been created by a browser from a web page (using pdf plugin or other pdf generator, doesn't matter)

Occasionally I can get around this by using another pdf generator (primopdf or similar).

Usually the print as image works but it does increase the time to process the job, and on a multipage long job this can be considerable time.

I wish Adobe would just fix this. It's obviously a bug introduced with the X version, since the problem never existed before, and many people report it now (check google search on the error message.)
