Has anyone else had a problem printing S&P46?
My computer/printer cannot flatten the pdf so that it can print. It just gets hung up during the flattening process. :?
I've never had this problem with pdf's before, so it's new to me.

It downloaded fine, but it took me about 15 minutes to print, seriously about a minute and a half between each page to load and print!

I was not sure if its a new-fangled pdf format or its S&P being so graphic intensive?

It did work, I was able to make a griled cheese sandwich , cook and eat it, before it was done!

Mine printed okay. I printed it in Black and White though, in color my printer takes forever...

Did you have the same problem with the Scarlet Citadel, or is this new this issue?

I've never had any problems with the pdfs of S&P before this one.
I'll give it another try with the printer, but the poor beastie just groans and wants to play dead! :D

Hmm. I get the same problem when I try to run it off the office printer, too. Could you try printing it one page at a time and see which one it chokes on? I think it's somewhere between six and eight, but I'd like corroborating evidence.

I suspect it may be the giant image of the Lords of the Black Circle...

What did you expect you fools ?
Did you really think you could steal the secrets of the Black Circle without paying the price?...

I had the same printing problems. I suspect foul magic at work...

Adobe acrobat reader 8.0 gave me so much trouble that I went back to an earlier version. Might be the reader rather than the pdf...

I'll bet your printer didn't make you a grilled cheese did it?

SEriously is that something in the S&P content or is it actually AdobePDF issues, how can you get your 'old adobe' back?

Adobe lets you download older versions. You would need to uninstall 8.0, reinstall 7 and ignore the messages to upgrade.
