What if my file isn't printing correctly?

First, determine what file type you're having trouble printing. If it's a Zip file, you'll need to uncompress the file first before you can print the components. Here's how you can open a Zip file.

If the file is a PDF, especially a PDF with a lot of graphics, it may look fine on your screen, but may not print out correctly. If you’re having trouble printing a PDF, p
lease be sure that you're opening the PDF with the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

 

Once this application is downloaded and installed to your computer:

 

  1. Open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader
  2. Click "Print"
  3. In the “Page Sizing & Handling” section, select “Shrink Oversized Pages” if needed
  4. Click on "Advanced"
  5. Check the "Print as Image" box
  6. Print the document
