Seems to be a font related problem. You can often work around this by activating the [print as image] option in the printing dialog.

Hi @William27825359h679 

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF and check.

 

Are you able to view the PDF fine via Acrobat?

 

What is the version of the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 22.3.20281 (Mac) or 22.3.20282 (Win) installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

Also try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and see if that works.

 

Please check for any missing/pending updates for the printer driver and firmware and try updating it.

 

Also, please go through the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-pdf-printing-acrobat-reader.html and see if that works for you.

 

Regards

Amal
