I have had to reset my preference file over a dozen time the last couple months.

Frequently when I go to print, Photoshop just closes, it doesn't save what I was working on or remember 

it in the recent list.

According to cloud my Photoshop is up to date.

This is a Windows 10 computer.

I had a similar problem after upgrading from CS6 to the current edition of CC2022 Photoshop. I use a lot of type and different fonts and anything I had previously created in CS6 was crashing Photoshop when I attempted to print. After a lot of trial and error and doing preference resets, etc, etc, etc, I discovered that the culprit was a font no longer supported in Photoshop but which I had been using for over 20 years. It took me a long time, but when I re-created the same image with currently supported fonts (unfortunately nothing like my favorite font that was no longer supported), the problem went away and I was able to print to my heart's content. However, this now looks like I have to re-create everything in CC2022 if I want to re-print images from CS6. Surely this can't be right? Can someone please tell me if there is a workaround on this other than re-creating a complete work?

Unfortunately, it seems like font subsitution [with one that does the job for you] may be the only solution in this case.

It sounds like you were using a Type1 font, and they are no longer supported, as most have long since been replaced by OpenType. Thomas Phinney warned us about this in 2005.

You are correct that Type1 fonts no longer work. Microsoft dropped support for Type 1 fonts with Office 2013 for Windows and Office 2016 for Mac.
