Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described, when users try to print a pdf to printers the job doesn't spool to printer while if you try to print a word doc to same printers you can see the job.

 

Is this a behavior with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with adifferent PDF file stored on your computer locally and check.

Also check for any missing/pending update for Adoe Acrobat Reader DC and the printer driver and firmware and see if that helps. Go to Help menu of Acrobat Reader > Check for Updates and reboot the computer once.

 

You may also try to remove the printer driver, reboot the computer and reinstall the printer driver from the manufacturer website.

 

For more information please check out the help page listed below:

Hope this information will help.

 

Regards

Amal
