I needed to print a few pages of the Advanced Sorcery PDF today and ran into a problem -- the images printed but not the text. Even the text on top of graphics was not printed -- I just got a whited-out area where the text should be.

I finally found a solution, I printed each page as an image, and that worked ok (albeit slowly). You can find that option under the Advanced print settings in Adobe.

Did anyone else hit this problem, and is there a better (or faster-printing) solution?

If it matters, my PDF was from DriveThruRPG.

Did you highlight the text and try Print Selected?

Also make sure you use Adobe Arcobat Reader. At least on a Mac the provided Preview app sometimes messes up and prints are less good/incomplete.
I always use Acrobat for printing, at least then I know it gets as good as possible. Otherwise I shy away from it for reading ... there are faster apps for that.

Pansophy, yes I'm using Adobe -- either/both Reader XI and Acrobat 9.5. I think I tried printing in both, but I'll double-check.

SDLeary: No, I didn't try highlighting and printing. I wanted to print out a chapter double-sided so I did a range of pages. I'll try the highlighting and see what happens.
