Chapter 6. Printing PDFs > Printing as an Image

Printing as an Image

At times, you'll find some PDF documents either difficult or impossible to print. There are a number of reasons why a PDF document can't be printed—the most common being problems with type fonts. A corrupt font, a font not embedded in a PDF, too many fonts in the document that overload a printer's memory, and similar types of font problems can prevent you from printing the file to your desktop printer. To help overcome printing problems you can choose to print the file as an image, which converts all the illustrated vector artwork and type fonts to raster images, which are less-complex files to print.

When you print a file as an image, however, the document integrity suffers and may result in a bitmapped appearance with visible jagged edges on the type. Use this option only as a last alternative when the file fails to print using the other print options.
