When I try to print a web page I get a lot of what I will call gibberish for lack of a better term.What is causing this?
An example would be where there should be numbers, it looks like this:
Which browser are you using? Which website are you trying to print?
Go to Printing Preferences... (Go to Printers and Faxes->Right click on Adobe PDF Printer->Printing Preferences...) and uncheck the check box 'Rely on System Fonts only; do not use document fonts". click OK. This will solve your problem.
In answer to your questions, I am using I.E. 9 RC, but was using the pre RC version at the time.
The site was my bank site.
I deactivated and re installed and all is well at this point.
I did however take your advice as to unchecking the font box.
I am having the same problem and the solution did not change. I am using Windows XP, Adobe Standard 9.4. I reinstalled my printer driver thinking that was the problem. It is only with web printing and the converter will not convert. I also tried the Tools editing solution and that did not work.
Could this be part of the Update issue?
I ended up de activating my Adobe uninstalling and then reinstalling it. Took care
of it. Plus this way I was able to make sure I had the lastest updates.
Update 03/04/2011 I went specifically to the bank site that I was having aproblem with and it works perfectly, so IT IS NOT An IE 9 RC PROBLEM!
Sheesh lets always blame someone else!!!
This solved my problem, thank you.
It is a known problem with IE9 and the workaround I have mentioned will solve your problem.
I am having the same problem that's described here but I'm running Firefox 4.0b12.
I had absolutely no problem with Firefox beta versions printing to a pdf file in the past, but I recently downloaded the trial version of Adobe Acrobat Professional X and the printing is a disaster.
Initially, it would say there was a printer error (and documents would collect in the printer dialogue box) but the file would be generated anyway. In these pdf files, the text display was fine from non-web programs but gibberish from Firefox. I found a posting in the forum that suggested uninstallating the Printer, then Repairing the whole installation. This seemed to take care of the error with printing but the gibberish persists. I have just tried the suggestion posted here, but it doesn't help matters.
I was planning to go ahead and upgrade to Acrobat X (even though it has a number of features that are unappealling compared to the prior version), but this printing problem is a deal breaker. There is no way that I will pay money for an "upgrade" that won't let me print a webpage to a coherent pdf file.
I would like to know if there are any other steps that I can take and also when Adobe might have this problem fixed. (I was also rather shocked to discover that there is apparently no way to send a support email directly to Adobe on these sorts of issues and that the only option for assistance seems to be paying money out of pocket for a support phone call.)
That looks like a problem with Firefox beta and not Acrobat:
