Pdf file makes me save before printing, but file still won't print.

When I try to print, the file makes me 'save as' it then print, but when I try to print the saved file, it won't allow me to print and makes me save it again. What's wrong? How do I print then?

Hey Jen,

I believe you are trying to print the pdf from your physical printer.
After opening the PDF go to the print Dialog box.
On the Print dialog Box, On the Bottom Left there is a check box which says Print to file.
Uncheck that check Box, you would be able to print from your physical printer.

Thanks

Veer,

That's not what Jen is saying I know because I am running into the same problem. When I attempt to print a pdf file to my printer it ask me to save every time (even if no changes were made. After that it still does not print.

That's not the answer for me. I selected the printer that I wanted it to go to and it always tries to get me to save it. Then, if you do go that route it saves it in another form vice 'pdf'.

I dont get that. The file i want to print does not come up on my screen...e.g. There is a pdf file i want to open from an email or website and as soon as i click on it - it goes to save file, then i can print from downloads. However i dont want to keep doing that - its a pain.the save to file box is already unchecked btw...
