My pdf has 4 pages designed on landscape 11x8.5. When I go to print, it wants to print on portrait and if I change it to landscape nothing is on the pages.

Any help?

Hi Joanie,

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. AS described you are unable to print the landscape pages in PDF

 

- Is this a behavior with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try to print a different PDF file and check. If the file is stored on a shared network/drive, please download it to your computer first and then try to print.

 

- What is the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help About Acrobat and make sure you have the latest version installed Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once. Also check for any missing/pending updates for printer driver and firmware and try updating it

 

You may also try to print the PDF as an image. Go to Print > Advanced > Print As Image and see if that helps.

 

Also please check out the help page - https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-pdf-printing-acrobat-reader.html

 

Regards

Amal

That's an odd one, as I have always found the Print dialog box in Acrobat/Reader pretty robust.  Are you using Reader or Acrobat Pro for the print attempt?  Maybe post a screenshot of your Print dialog box so we can see if there's something not being set properly.

My best,

Dave
