Adobe Pro fillable form is blurry when printed

Q: Adobe Pro fillable form is blurry when printed

I have scanned a document to pdf and opened it with Adobe Pro 7.0. I chose the option to make the form fillable using Designer. I am able to fill in the form, but when I print it out, the form is not as crisp as the orginal document that was scanned. Are there settings that can be tweaked? If so, I can't find them. Before the document is pulled into Designer, it prints fine. It is degraded when it is pulled into the designer program.

I am having trouble with end users using my fillable form I created in Adobe. I will tell you the steps I went through and then my error testing before making the form live for end users. Then I will give the error case that my end user is having.

How I made the PDF Fillable Form: (made on a desktop OS: Vista Business)
1. Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 was used to make the PDF form with no User Rights in Adobe Reader. Form has text boxes, drop down list, radio buttons, and check boxes.

2. Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended opened PDF made in step one and Enabled User Rights in Adobe Reader. This says it makes available the following features when opened in the free Adobe Reader:
- Save form data (for a fillable PDF form only) [my goal]
- other features but not needed for this PDF.
3. When I click on the button for Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader (Save Now button) I save the form with the same name but add Fillable Form to then end to keep records of the versions of the form I have.
4. Open the newly made fillable form on the same computer with Adobe Reader 9 test all the options for the drop down list and other fields in the form, save, close and reopen. This form works in all respects.

My Error testing before making form Live:
1. Test form on different computer (laptop OS: Vista Business) on the same network as the original computer. Open the Fillable Form with Adobe Reader 7.0 and test the form as when I make it on the original computer (i.e. test all the fields). It pass... Read more

How would I be able to link excel information to an adobe fillable form or the other way around if it is easier?

I have 4000 raffle tickets where names/addresses ect need to be entered into a excel spead sheet and then into a adobe PDF fillable form where by the tickets are 3 per page. I need to merge the following informtion.... ticket number , number of tickets purchased, name address phone number from the form to excel or the excel to the fillable form.

I am a new user of adobe and have limited experience in excel .
Thanks so much for any assistance.

A:How to link excel to adobe fillable form

Find out the 'name' of the fields in the pdf file. Press ctrl+shift+7 to go into form editing in Acrobat.
Your excel sheet should have the same column headers as the pdf field names to import

Copy each row and the column headers to a new excel sheet save it as a TAB delimited or CSV file.

Import this TAB delimited/CSV file from the option in Forms/Manage Form Options/Import Data.

Like this repeat it for every form.

I have a paper form with approximately 130 fields that we have been filling in with pen on paper for years. We need someone to take this form and design another exactly like it (so much like it that a printed PDF of it looks exactly like the original off-set-printed form) so that there is no difference between the appearance the form coming from the offset printer and the one printed from PDF on a laser printer.

This form is 8.5 x 11 inches and printed to within a quarter-inch of the page edges. I need to be able to open the form in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, fill it in and print (or fax) it and have it appear as though someone placed an offset-printed form in a typewriter and filled it in with perfect accuracy in the various fields.

If someone here is interested, I can send you a one-meg PDF to look at and give us a quote.

Hey all,
Does anyone know of a freeware that will develop a interactive PDF form. Or, one that will transform a word document into an interactive form? One that can then be read by foxit or acrobat readers?

A:Fillable PDF form or similar

I don't think there is a program that can automatically do this but you should be able to print your Word doc to any PDF printer application and then use FoxIt or Adobe Acrobat pro to make it fillable.

I had to design a fill able form at work using Word (2003) only. I used text form fields in tables and set it up as a template (.dot). It has repeatable header at the top. The form is to enter info about a segment of a route. As an example; it’s to put in certain info of I-40 (Interstate 40) between Memphis, TN and Little Rock, AR. No problem it worked great and everybody liked it. They have now told me that if they want it to be able to add further segments on the same form as needed. Like say they want to add info of the segment of I-40 from Little Rock to Ft. Smith, AR. So how do I do that? The way I made the form up was to protect it with editing restrictions set to filling in forms. Because of that they just can’t copy and paste the fields. Is there anyway to make a macro or something that asks them if they want to add another segment for the fields to repeat?

Hi Folks

Been looking around for ages for a good free PDF fillable form editor as I at times have PDF forums I wish to make electronically editable and while Acrobat Pro (ran out of my trial 30days) can do this ok, not a cost I wish to take on as work will not pay for it, so I'm left with freeware options.

A link to what I mean

Now I have tested out a few online options and that are passable but not as good as a desktop app would be and not always I will have internet access (train and airport etc), so any suggestions of apps you have personally used that will cut it....

If possible needs to be Windows 10 compatible not a deal breaker though as most will be these days, as I will be using a desktop and Surface with W10.

I've spent the last four hours trying to solve this/use info that's similar to my problem to no avail. I feel I'm so close I can smell the answer is near!

I have a form I use for work that I manually have to fill in 50 times a day with mostly the same information. This is definitely a job for a computer!

Ideally, I would like to open the spreadsheet and have a button that says 'Print' and it will print what I need - 50 forms with the right information.

So far I have done the following:

Created a custom page size (16cm x 14.7cm)
Scanned an original to use as a background so I can line up the information
Adjusted the Excel boxes to print the info in the right place.

Now I need to print the following number ranges as identifiers:

1 - 22, 29-42 and 51-54

I feel I'm close with using this macro:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
[copy] = [copy] + 1
End Sub

I use both Excel 2003 and 2007, depending on where I am!

I have NO experience of macros until today, so any advice is very welcome.

In Office XP, I need to make a template or form or something (unsure of correct MS term) to enter client data, name address b-day etc. Then, whenever they come in, want to take that saved data and have it entered to a preprinted, normally hand filled , company form. The company form is 2 page carbonless copy so a dot matrix printer will have to be resurrected to print the data to the form. New dates are all that would be new info. All data is presented horizontally except a few items that are on right edge at 90 degrees to normal portrait orientation. Word? Excel? I have a copy of Office XP for Dummies but can't find what I need. I don't have a MS Office book. Software came as disk only. I probably would have an easier time if I new the correct terminology.

Thanks in advance for your help.


A:In OFFICEXP How do I Enter Data Base and Have it fill a Pre Printed Form?

Steve, it seems to me that the easiest way to accomplish this would be using Acess (assuming that you have the Pro version of Office XP -- the Standard version lacks this program.)

With Access, you can create a database containing all of the fields of raw information that you need to enter, an onscreen form for data entry that closely resembles the preprinted form needing to be filled in, and a printed report format that duplicates the layout of the preprinted form (or could possibly be used to actually print the data in the corresponding locations of the actual preprinted form.) Access also allows you to share the information you create with Word or Excel if needed. All of the data tables, reports, and data entry forms are objects that are contained in the Access file itself.

Lacking Access, Excel could be used to hold the data (spreadsheet programs are often used as database programs), but you would not have the same flexibility as a dedicated database program like Access provides. There is a great deal of info in the Office XP program help files -- the hard part is just in sifting through to find the information that really applies to you. Picking up an Access 2002 (or Excel 2002) for Dummies would give you more detailed information than the general Office XP book would -- I bought Access 97 for Dummies years ago and still refer to it often.

I use PrimoPDF so I can write up articles on either Microsoft Word Processor or WordPad and I go to File -> Print and choose "PrimoPDF" from the printer list and click Print. Then when the other screen shows up, it gives an option of "Screen" or "Print" and I don't know which one to use but I've tried both and when it created the adobe file for me, the words are blurry and you can't really make out what it says unless you squint real hard or enlarge it.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

My Boss wants me to make a general fill-in-able form for an employee contract. I know how to do this for all of the sections she wants except one.

My boss wants there to be a button that users can click to add more sections to the form if there isn't space enough. I'm not sure howto do this. She wants something like an online application where you can add more work history by clicking a button, only this particular field wouldn't be work history.

I have created a "test" form in Acrobat 9 Pro Extended. The question fields are proprietary content and thus security is set such that the recipient cannot copy, change, or print the form. The answer fields are drop-downs with A - D options. I have sent the form to myself as a test and all that works properly. I need to be able to receive completed forms via e-mail (or just the data if that works) but need to eventually be able to export (or copy) each response set, in order, into MSExcel. When I tried to send the completed form via e-mail, it indicates the form cannot be saved (obviously due to security settings) and thus the changes (answers) will not be part of the form - only the original with the default answers.

How can I enable responders to send me the test answers via e-mail, without compromising the proprietary nature of the form's content?

Also, I would prefer not to use the Adobe on-line repository because, as I understand it, gives the user access to the form via the web.

I do have a web site in which I could host the test and allow users to access it, take the test, and then submit the answers.

How I made the PDF Fillable Form:

1. Created a form in Word
2. Saved it as a pdf
3. In Adobe 8 Professional, used Create Form wizard to make a form from the existing word doc
4. Still in Adobe Acrobat 8 Profressional, I went to "advanced" and "Enable User Rights in Adobe Reader" to allow users who only have the free Acrobat Reader programs to fill in and save the form. Then saved it.


1. In trying to test the document, I opened it on my computer (but using Adobe Reader 9, not the Acrobat) and also tried on my home computer, which has Adobe Reader 7. Both times I got messages saying "This document enabled extended features in Adobe Reader. The doc has been changed since it was created and these rights are no longer valid. Please contact the author for the original version of this document." (The irony is it's telling me to contact me!)

2. I sent it to another user who has Adobe Reader 9 and he was able to open it, type in it, save it, and email it back to me (ie it worked!)

Hi there

I have downloaded a form from Revenue Canada named gst190-fill-11e.pdf. The PDF form is fillable. To make a long story short, I have recreated the form in Excel 2000 and created an Excel program that automatically populates the cells. The problem is that Revenue Canada will not accept my Excel form and demands that I use their PDF fillable form. I'm tired of copying and pasting data from my Excel form to their gst190-fill-11e.pdf form, since I have hundreds of these to do. It is very time consuming. I tried to record a macro by copying and pasting from my Excel form onto their form but my macro looks something like this.

Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False

In other words, the name of the form did not appear in this recorded macro. Is there a way to create a macro that copies and pastes cells from Excel into a fillable PDF file??

If anyone out there has any idea how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it. If you want to look at the form just google it.

I sent to look at my Sent Items tonight and to my surprise I saw another email apparently sent yesterday that I definitely didn't send.

I was astonished to find this as I have just upgraded to Vista in the last 2 days and have sent minimal emails.

The subject is "Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer." & is sent to a Hotmail account. The attachment is a POSTDATA.ATT. When I look at this file in txt format it has info such as one of my email addresses, my website & description - as if I had filled out a web form & pressed Submit.

Now, thinking about it, shouldn't IE let you know that it is about to send data?

One strange thing is that the email is dated yesterday evening in the Sent list, but when I open the email to view it, it will always have the current date & time - seemingly from the Windows clock.

I am thinking that either

1) this is due to a bug in the new IE & yesterday I visited a website which submitted data via email without my knowledge or

2) this email is an old email that I Imported from backed up email (PST format) from a form I ACTUALLY sent that Internet Mail has redated - maybe something went

Hi all

I have a simple Access (2003) db which has a single form view with a subform. The main form is a record based upon a physical case file the subform only details actions past and future, a sort of event log.

I also have a continuous form which displays all upcoming actions sorted by date on all cases for a particular user so they can see just how busy they are likely to be for a particular period. What I would like to do is have an on click() property for the detail of the continuous form so that it opens the main form filtered by the record in the continuous form that was clicked. User can then update or add new events for that case before closing form and returning to the continuous form

Hope this makes sense

coasterman, welcome to the Forum.
It makes perfect sense.
If you add a Command Button to the Continuous Form and after selecting the mainform select the "Open the Form and find specific data to display". This will give you the code that you need to add to your On Click or On Double Click property or of course leave the button and use that.

Hi All,

Noob first-time poster I'm afraid!

I'm new to Access 2007 (but have used 2003 & 2000 reasonably extensively).

I'm building an App and have created all the necessary tables, as well as creating the relationships in the Database Tools area (which I know are correct - I'm a SQL Server DBA in my day job)!

Anyway, it's an almost text book example of an employers and employees database; one employer having many employees (employerID is the foreign key on the employee table).

I have created an employer form (using the wizard) which is fine, but then when I add a button to open the employee form (selecting 'Open the form and find specific records', matching employerID on the Employer table with EmployerID on the Employee table) it doesnt work. Instead, I get a popup box asking me for the EmployerID! Even if I manually enter the correct employerID when the popup box appears it actually displays all records, so I'm sure that the problem is more fundamental (and therefore, probably my fault)!

I'm hoping that I've just overlooked something REALLY stupid, but would apprecaite any suggestions!

I have seen this kind of problem with Access 2007 VBA code which does not work when it dod in 2000-2003.
It can be a Syntax problem which you may be able to get around, if not you can get around the problem bby using a Criteria in the Query that supplies the Employee Form.
Although I would have thought it would be better design wise to have the Employees as a Subform or Tabbed Subform on your Employer Mainform.
I do not have Access 2007, only 2003 so I can't help with the VBA, but you could post the code anyway.

Did you use a Wizard to create the Employee Form, if so check the Record Source SQL it may be preventing your EmployerID from working.

thanks for taking a look at this thread, any help will be greatly appreciated by a complete Noob.

I've been given a LOT of help by members of this Forum (especially OBP) with a DB I'm making as a first look at any type of IT product, and I'm very grateful, so thank you all.

Recently, I was advised to take a look at the "Tabbed" style of "MainForm" instead of the "Switchboard" style I originally used. I must say, I really like the tabbed style much more than the switchboard but I've hit one hurdle that I can't seem to overcome.

In the Switchboard style, I was able to set a form to load in either DATA ENTRY = YES or DATA ENTRY = NO mode depending on which sub-switchboard the user selected. For example, I had a ENTER NEW sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = YES mode & I had another EDIT EXISTING sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

However, with the new tabbed style, I cannot set the form load type for separate tabbs, it will only accept the LAST type as the GLOBAL type. Example, on the ENTER NEW tab, I set the form to load as DATA ENTRY = YES & sets the form to open in DATA ENTRY = YES on both tabs, then I go to the EDIT EXISTING tab & set the same form to DATA ENTRY = NO & it sets the form to open in both tabs in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

So, my question is:
Can I set the same form to load differently on different tabs on the same MainForm?

I would just copy the Subform, so you have version 1 for data entry with the Data Entry set to "Yes" and version 2 set to "No".
The only thing you need to do then is to Requery the Editing form each time you make an entry in the data entry form.
Although I prefer to just have an Edit form with a "New Record" button for the data entry.

My multi item form isn't letting me add new records, only update and delete current ones.

My guess it that this is because the form is based on a multi-table query. That's fine, I can make a new form specifically for adding new records, but I'd like to be able to salvage this form if possible. Is there any way to either force this form to accept new records in the bottom row, or is there any way to get rid of the "add record" bottom row completely so it's not misleading users into thinking they can add records here?

I have a database which ultimately will have a couple of thousand records. The primary table has 30+ fields. I have lots of queries and connected reports to show various subsets of the data needed from the table. However, there are times when what is needed is all fields for a specific subset. Because the records sought often need to be filtered by several criteria, I've found the "Filter by Form" option to work well. I have a button on the main dashboard marked "Find Record" that automatically opens a search form in the "Filter by Form" mode. This allows me to enter information into as many controls as necessary, and returns exactly the right records after clicking on "Toggle Filters" on the ribbon. The problem is that ultimately I need to make this "Access-free". The goal is to create an application from the database without ribbons. I've created a button to run the filter, and another one to print the results, but when the search form is open in the "Filter by Form" mode, it greys out the buttons. I understand that there is a GotFocus command or something similar. Can anyone help with specifics, both the syntax of the command and where the command needs to be typed? Thanks a bunch...I look forward to your reply.

Hi All,

I need some help to figure out how to do a project.
i was given a sample tax form from the government that i have to re-create in electronic format. I have to build the form to match their specifications exactly. I've tried to do it in MS Word 2003 using a table, but the when i try to ensure that the tables cells are the same size as that on the paper - the tables keeps either changing the dimensions of the cell or changing the dimensions of other table cells.

the major thing is to ensure that the form i build matched that paper sample exactly - for example i cannot be off by even a millimetre.

In addition to that, my company has extracted the tax data for its 400-500 employees into an Excel Spreadsheet. I have to use the excel spreadsheet to make the "form" i created fillable.

The previos analyst used ms word 2003 and created the form using the drawing menu and text boxes and then mail merged the info in the excel sheet to the word doc.

can someone suggest an easier to do this? i wold be grateful for any help i can get.


A:Create Electronic Form to match sample paper form

Welcome to TSG

If I got your meaning correctly, then yes, ther's an easier way.
I'm almost sure that you can create the form in Excel, though setting the exact sizes and positions could be difficult.
I'm absolutely sure that you can create the form in Powerpoint, and with this latter, setting the exact sizes and positions should be much more simple.
Automatically filling the Powerpoint form is also possible.

If you only need to print out the filled forms, or create PDF-s, this Powerpoint-Excel duo might be good for you.
If you need to do further calculations with the filled forms, then I strongly recommend to stick with Excel.

I'm also curious what others can say.

I have a subform which on its own - works beautifully but fails under the mainform. I use a main form to select the record that the end user wants to update. Upon update event on main form, the sub form opens, presenting fields for possible updating. The Sub Form also present 2 buttons - Save & Close or Cancel and Close (Undo). When the main form opens, the code set AllowClose as False. When the sub form is opened as a result of the update on the mainform, the issue is the Close command /code gets canceled. (Error 2501). I have tried: 1. setting AllowClose (true and False) on both forms, 2. only the main form and 3. only the subform. None of these 3 configurations resolves the issue. Also, I tried moving the buttons to the mainform instead of the sub form but that failed as well.

The application has a dozen forms and all of them utilize AllowClose functionality so the end user MUST use the buttons on the forms to force background queries (updates, deletes, perform calculations, recalc control totals etc). This is the first time I have tried to use Allow Close on a subform with buttons.

I am a new user to Access 2010. My operation system is Window 7.
I have created a data base with two tables. The first table contains a list of students and their personal information. The second table contains student subjects and has many subject records with a relationship to the student record. The relationship key is the student id.

I have created a form that populates with the student information and contains a subform that populates with that students subjects. All of this works great for existing students. I can edit the student information and and new subject records.

Now here is my problem. I would like to create a form that preceeds my current form. The user would input a student number and click search button. If that student number exists on the student data base then the form that I created should open populated with the student data and their subjects and allow the user to update it. If the student number does not exist, then I would like that same form (or a form with the same layout) to open and the only data populated is the student number that was input on the search form. The user should be able to input all of the student data and course information and hit a save button that would insert the records into the correct database tables.

needaccesshelp, welcome to the Forum.
First a couple of points, you do not need to "save" the record, access does so automatically. Also when creating a New record the subform should be automatically populated with the Student Number, this is controlled by the master child links.

The combo you need is a Find combo which can be created using the combo wizard, that combo can have it's Not In List Property set to yes, which can then be used to trigger adding the student that to the table and then to the form (and combo).

I have this small database I am converting from A97 toA2010. I created a new A2010 db and pulled over objects I needed. Everything is tested out and working fine.

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now, and I've been unable to solve this problem. Perhaps someone out there can provide some guidance.

Sometimes, I'm unable to print things (such as online coupons) because I'm told that my printer is set to "Keep Printed Documents." I've tried disabling this setting via the Advanced tab under the printer's properties. However, when I do this, click Apply then OK, and close the tab, the setting automatically reverts back to "Keep Printed Documents". Does anyone know why this is happening? It's sort of frustrating to not be able to set the printer settings the way you choose.

I appreciate any tips/suggestions you might have. Thanks!

Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.

Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.

NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.

Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.

Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?

Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?

Any advice apprecaited.


A:Order of Pages Printed


Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.

Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.

You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.

However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.

In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.

SOOOOOOO do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.

If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".

Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy

In the second table, “ID” field is also an auto number and is PK. I have related the tables with a one to many: theoretically one business with many possible dates/donations which is the basic premise. I created a main form to input the business data and created a sub-form for the donation data based on their respective tables.

I have an HP Deskjet 920c that has worked fine until a few days ago. I tell it to print and the goes through the motions but nothing comes out. This means the printer icon is appears and says that it is printing but it does not. I have checked the power cords and the made sure that it is connected to the computer correctly. Any ideas?

I have printed photos from e-mails before, but never had a problem with moire patterns. This time I have a fine vertical line pattern that is not clearly seen unless you have glasses on that magnify them. Unfortunately, I wear glasses that bring them out. What can I do to prevent or get rid of the moire? Any ideas? Thanks, lilart

A:Moire from printed e-mail photos

It likely just a matter of the resolution of the email derived image vs the resolution of the printer. Does it happen with every image or just the lower resolution ones from the emails?

I have a problem with my Word documents. When I try to print them, the right edge is cut off. I thought it was my computer or my printer, so I took it to another computer, and the same thing happened.

The problem is in the files themselves. How do I change the files so they function as they used to? This has been the case with more than 20 files, which were made at different times.

My computer used to warn that the form I was using was too wide, and ask did I want to go ahead. I would select yes, it would print, and would look just fine. Now it does not ask that question.

Incidentally, another problem is that my files no longer end with .doc, but now say .rtf. All of my Word files changed in several ways at once.

Other than using View>Text Size, is there anything I can do that may cause the print to be darker? I know that my eyes are beginning to grow weaker but perhaps someone knows a trick for me to use or an answer. The light print seems to occur on most web pages and very bad on my ISP webmail account. My signature will tell you I am using WinXP Pro and SP2. If all pages were as clear and dark as the print I am seeing while typing this thread, I would not be asking for help. As always, TIA

I suspect this might be a fairly common problem. Whenever I print there also seems to be a block of about 5 fine lines printed over the text for about ever new line of text. Now I recently bought a new (high capacity) cartridge which costs a fortune, so I'm not too keen to buy another if it is the printer (about 6 years old) which is the problem.

Has anyone else had the same sort of problem?

A:Printer deletes documents before they are printed

G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
What kind of printer is it?
The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
Cheers, qldit.

I doubt that I can post this question here but I assume it'll be removed if not.

I have an HP printer, 2540, wireless printer. Works fine.

I started to print a pdf file. Because it was a large file I choose the 'booklet' option, which prints 4 pages on one side, then, when everything of the even numbers (I think, not sure) has printed, you will get a message on the pc telling you how to replace the already printed pages in the printer so it can print on the backsides.

When I saw the first batch I decided I didn't like it. So when the message with instructions on how to replace the already printed paper, I went in the printer's menu, highlighted the name of the document and did 'cancel'. In this printer menu it now said it was 'deleting' the document. But it didn't. I waited about half an hour. I turned the printer off and back on. I closed the document. But still the printer menu said 'deleting'.

I opened the document up again, changed the settings for the printer (as in one sided, normal size) and accidentally hit 'print'. I then noticed that - in the printer menu - the 'new' document showed up above the one that still said it was deleting. But it still didn't print. I went in the print menu again and highlighted the new document and did 'cancel' and it did cancel it.

But the old document is still sitting there, 'deleting'. I can not get past that. Any suggestions wo... Read more

A:Cannot delete partly printed document from cue

There's a way to force these to delete, if you don't mind a little typing. You need to open a command prompt by running cmd.exe. If you're unsure of how to do that, tell me which operating system you're using and I can walk you through that. This should open up a black window, and you need to type in the following commands sequentially, hitting the Enter key after each command.
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\* /q /f /s

net start spooler
The first command stops the printing service, allowing you to carry out the second command, which deletes any jobs in the queue. The last command re-starts the printing service, and you can try running a test print. Once that's all done, you can just close the black window.

Gentlemen/Ladies,I?m not sure where to post this question so I?m plumping for this forum, knowing that it will be redirected if it is in the wrong place.Occasionally, when I open a website, its pages are too wide for my monitor and I have to scroll across to the right to see what is hidden from view. When I go to print the pages, I end up with just threequarters of the width of the script.I am using an HP LaserJet 1010 printer.I do not have this problem with all websites. Today, the offender is - the pages of this website be partly displayed on the monitors of all of the people who open it , or are my own ?settings? to blame. Please, how can I overcome the problem ?Yours sincerely, oldsoldier

A:Lack of printed script width

Hi oldsoldier.I get the same thing when viewing that page. My screen resolution is set to 1024X768. I found that if I went to View>Text Size and set it to Smallest the page almost fit. Have you used Print Preview in the File menu to see what the page will print like? You can also use Page Setup in the File menu to adjust the margins etc. before printing.

I am so hoping someone knows the answer to this very perplexing problem... I thought it was my printer so I bought a new one and I have the same problem. I print a picture of my granddaughter, who has these wonderful chubby cheeks.........until it is printed and the chubby cheeks are gone. She has slimmed right down...... lol I have been struggling with this problem for quite a while now, have asked everyone who comes within two feet of me and no ones knows how to fix this or what is even causing it. I know someone here will know. I have never had a problem that this site has not been able to fix for me. : ) Thanks, in advance.

Problem: Green Cast on Images being printed
Editor - Elements Version 7 & Windows default viewer
Printer R285
Colour Management:- every variation tried

My Neighbour has a Epsom R285 printer, his had it a few years.
I have recently changed his PC to a Windows 7 desktop and installed all the drivers. The Printer worked fine, but yesterday he was getting a green colour cast on all images
I checked the head alignment, nozzle set-up and cleaned the heads
Checked with windows default viewer, and printing from that application - same problem
Checked all the Colour Management, ICC, settings etc - tried without Management, sRGB, adobe 1998 etc, checked colour management on printer and elements

The image looks fine on the screen , I have emailed a sample image and on my setup it prints fine

The next step was to try the printer on my laptop
any other ideas - this is usually a colour management issue and i have fixed quite quickly in the past on other systems - so I suspect I'm missing something obvious now
