Acrobat Pro 9.51 Hangs When Printing to PDF from WordPerfect.

Seems Adobe Acrobat 9.51 is hanging when attempting to do a conversion to PDF by printing to PDF from WordPerfect (using X3/X5).  Problem is it also hangs the rest of the PC.  Have to attempt to kill the process (though it is so slow I end up having to restart the PC).  Anybody have any thoughts on this.  Attempted to do a repair (no help), removed the program and reinstalled (also no help).  Thought maybe another process was killing this but turned off all startup items.  Maybe I missed some uninstall items I need to manually remove?  Any help would be appreciated.

Knowing the OS would be helpful as it may be a factor.
If the OS is Windows 7 Acrobat 9.x will not provide full functionality.
Regardless, WP file format(s) are not compatible / supported by Acrobat PDFMaker.
Corel uses its own publish to PDF process rather than anything Adobe.
With Acrobat installed you can print to the Adobe PDF virtual printer.
If you are not doing a File - Print and selecting the Adobe PDF printer then you are using a WP rather than an Adobe process provided by Acrobat.
Be well...

  • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro do not open when printing a pdf document. Can anyone help?

    Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro do not open when printing a pdf document, instead I open it with Adobe Reader X to be able to print.
    Can anyone help?

    Hi Edna,
    It sounds like Adobe Reader X is your default PDF file handler. Launch Adobe Reader X.  Choose Edit > Preferences > General.  Click the 'Select Default PDF Handler' button at the bottom and choose Acrobat 9 from the drop-down menu.  Click Apply, then OK.
    Restart your computer.  Acrobat 9 should now be your default PDF file handler again.

  • Missing images when printing to pdf from Word

    When printing to pdf from MS Word 2003 in some cases textboxes and/or images disappear in the target PDF, depending on their position.
    Word and Acrobat Standard are the latest updates. If the Word text is converted on a Mac the target pdf has the images present, so it looks like it's a Windows only problem. Any suggestions where to start looking for a fix?

    You may have to turn on "display large images" in the preferences.

  • Text getting cut off when printing to PDF from Excel

         I've seen a lot related to this subject but nothing that shows a real solution.
         Using Excel 2003-sp3 and Adobe Acrobat v.9 Standard, the right half of the last character in the string gets cut off. It prints from excel fine.
         It's not always the text that is the right-most on the page either. An affected PDF file is attached - note the cut off "S" on the last line (NET ASSETS OF GOVERNMENTAL ACTIVITIES).
         Any assistance is appreciated.

  • When printing to PDF from webpage, the pdf is compressed on the bottom of each page and markedly smaller print. How do I correct this?

    When printing to PDF from webpage, the pdf is compressed on the bottom of each page and with markedly smaller print, the top of the page is fine. How do I correct this?

    Open Contacts and click Preferences on the menu named Contacts. On the General tab of the Preferences window, select Show First Name: Before Last Name and then print. You can change that Preference back to the other way after printing if desired.

  • Acrobat Professional 7.0 hanging when printing from IE8 (Vista)

    Hello.  I've done my best to troubleshoot on my own but am encontering problems when trying to print a document from within Internet Explorer 8 on a PC running 32-bit Vista.
    Mind you I can print as I always have from any other browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera) without problem, but whenever I attempt to print any item to PDF using the installed Adobe PDF printer driver, the document simply sits in the printer spool queue with an "Error - Printing" status.  I have no problems whatsoever printing to PDF from any other application (Word, Excel, etc.)
    I've done my best to verify any settings within IE, Vista, and AP7 that seem like they could have interfered but wasn't able to find any.  I wouldn't be surprised it it's the result of IE's layer-upon-layer of bloated and settings, but I have absolutely no idea where to begin.
    I'd appreciate any useful guidance from others who may have experienced this, or a similar, phenomenon.
    Thanks in advance.

    Have you looked at Adobe's Knowledge Base to see what versions of Acrobat can fully work in the Vista OS?
    Time for an upgrade.

  • Acrobat Pro XI Mac won't print a .pdf file, but Apple Preview will print correctly

    I have Acrobat Pro XI for Mac.  recently I've run into pdf files that will show the document on screen ok, show up on print preview screen ok, but when I send it to a printer I either get:
    1.  no printout... the document passes through the printer queue ok, but nothing comes out (no blank paper, nothing).  no data seems to even reach the printer/print server.  no error.  the print job basically vanishes into thin air like the job was never sent
    2.  prints out with all the characters of a text substituted with squares (again, no error. just prints squares instead of text)
    But when I print the same document using Apple's Preview program on the same machine, the file prints out fine.
    I experience this problem with two different Macs, with two different OS versions.  Again both machines will print the .pdf file fine using Apple Preview, but not with Acrobat Pro XI.
    I've searched for this problem, but no one seems to have this problem. I've tried just printing one page, etc., and no difference (won't print, or print wrong using Acrobat, but prints fine using Preview)
    the files are typically sent via e-mail from a vendor, or a web downloaded form (invoice, forms filled out.  some are secure, some are not).  and these are from multiple sources.
    Any ideas what might be the problem, and how to fix this?
    Mac Pro (early 2008) and MacBook Pro (mid-2011)
    MacOS 10.8.4 and 10.6.8 (multiple computers have this same problem)
    Acrobat Pro XI, 11.0.04
    printer: HP LaserJet 5MP (yes.. old.. but it works) via HP JetDirect + print server on  LAN

    I just found this solution on another board, I tried it  (I removed the same file listed below) and it worked for me.... 
    Safari won’t save or print PDFs: how to fix
    :: Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 @ 5:29:46 am
    :: Tags: Computers
    If Safari won’t save or print PDFs (but views them without any problems), you probably have an Adobe PDF plug-in installed. In Safari, go to Help->Installed Plug-ins and do a search for “PDF.” If you have anything with “PDF” in it other than “WebKit built-in PDF,” that is probably the culprit.
    On my computer, the problem was “AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin”. To remove it, I quit Safari, did a Spotlight search (Command-Option space) for that file name, and then dragged it to the trash. When I restarted Safari, I could print and save PDFs again. You can also manually find the plugins by going to the system “Library”  folder (the one at the root of your hard disk, not in your user folder) and looking in the “Internet Plug-Ins” folder.
    I’m on OS X 10.8.2, running Safari 6.0.2 (8536.26.17).

  • Acrobat 8.1.2 hangs when printing from IE 7  under XP Pro x64

    Hey Community,
    my Acrobat Standard 8.1.2 and my Internet Explorer 7.05.... hang up when printing. Im running XP Pro x64 recent version.
    The other features printing from word or scanning do work well.
    Has somebody an idea how to fix that bug ?
    Thanks Frederik
    Funny thing - I just tested it out to describe the situation better:
    First test:
    I used the embedded printing icon in the toolbar and printing worked fine with Adobe did print eather already started or by automatic start on print icon. It worked several times in a row. But often Homepages are not scaled, so only part of the page was on the paper, because there is no option use the properties. Once Adobe opened I saw a new feature that I have downloaded some Multimedia features with the document and if I would like to listen to them.
    Second Test:
    I did the same job with using the File/Print command, set adobe as printer
    and the job hang up in this version. But to say, it is the internet explorer which hangs up. I couldn't minimize the window, IE was just freezed. After terminating IE via task manager the Adobe window of defining the files name showed up, but the process does not finish (X IE)
    After opening IE I tried to run Test1 with the still running Acobat but I got en error message from Adobe. After closing and starting Acrobat again the Test1 process worked fine without problem and without prior restart of the machine.
    I also tested this with Kapersky deactivated to make sure that the Multiimedia Content does not cause the trouble, but no changes I.E. just
    hangs up.
    Has somebody an idea?

    Problem solved. Does only happen with the Internet Explorer 32bit.
    With Internet Explorer 64bit it doesn't happen.

  • Acrobat Pro 7 locks up when creating a PDF

    I use Acrobat Professional 7 to create PDFs from AutoCAD .dwg files. I tried making one today after not using the application for a few months and it keeps hanging up at the same point. It says "Please wait, creating Adobe PDF" with a loading bar underneath it. The bar gets to full but it never finishes and the entire application locks up.
    Google hasn't revealed much information about this problem aside from clearing the temp files which didn't help. Completely uninstalling and reinstalling didn't do anything, as well as restoring to 3 months ago (furthest restore point). Any help at all would be very appreciated.

    1. Can you print to file with the Adobe PDF printer from AutoCAD? If so, can you open the file in Distiller to complete the PDF creation?
    2. If the answers in (1) are yes, then check for the running task AcroTray. If it is not running, that is likely your problem. It should be in your startup menu as a shortcut. The exe file is located in the Distiller folder.

  • I downloaded Adobe Acrobat Pro, but now can't print any .pdf.

    Have Window 8. I downloaded Acrobat Pro from Kivuto, deleted it at suggestion of Adobe help chat, and downloaded it again last night. I have tried multiple .pdf documents on both printers. My wife logged into her work computer through Citrix and used Acrobat Pro from the high school where she works, and still can't print. Any ideas?

  • FF hangs when printing a PDF page

    CRTL P brings up print options- printer Can0n iP1800. When OK is selected Progress Box shows "Printing MisCommands.PDF" and hangs at 0%complete. Must select "X" out FF which brings up the Program Not Responding box

    Thanks for checking.  It is clearly something about my system that is
    causing the hang.  In the cases I ran it stopped on photo 11 of about 30
    and that was repeatable.  Using another set of photos it stopped on
    something like 16 of 30 or so photos. That was also repeatable.
    It clearly is a problem on my configuration.
    I have uninstalled 64 bit Lightroom and installed 32 bit LR 2.7 as I had
    done with LR 2.6.

  • IE locks when printing to pdf from a web-based page or pdf

    Acrobat 7 standard. IE 6 on XPPro64. It is a 64 bit machine and so printer drivers had to be obtained for 64 bit. When I try to print to "Adobe pdf", the current page out of a 200 page catalog being viewed online, IE locks up and the print job in the queue is unresponsive. It does this no mayyer the site or file being printed from. Other than this, Acrobat seems to work on on the 64 bit machine. Same thing if the page isn't a pdf but an ordinary html page. Printing to pdf hangs no matter what. Is this a known bug for 64 bit? It's at work, and the IT dept loves to mess with things, lock things etc, but I can't think how it could be related to that.

    I think that the earliest version that has successfully run under X64 is AA8.1.2. I think that AA7 will not work on X64 as I recall the various reports of attempts by others to do that.

  • "could not start print job" when printing to PDF from Lightroom

    Any body else had this problem and fixed it??  When I print from Lightroom to Adobe PDF I get "could not start print job" and the print job hangs.
    I have:
    Lightroom 2.5 64 bit
    Acrobat Standard 9
    Windows 7 Ultimata 64bit but I had this problem with Vista 64 bit. Somtimes it would work sometimes not - now with Windows 7 Not - always.
    I can print to acrobat from every other application, even Photoshop CS3 - just not Lightroom.
    It's terribly frustrating.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can print from other apps, just printed a doc from open office.
    OS Windows 8.1. Have been printing from this computer and setup previously, it seems to have been an intermitent problem that has now become a consistent problem.
    I've updated the printer firmware, and Windows is up to date.
    Seems to be a lightroom issue, and I'm getting a bit nervous because I have a show opening on February 15th I need to print for.

  • Acrobat (10.1.3) crashes when exporting a pdf from InDesign (7.5.2)

    So every once and a while I export a file to pdf from InDesign and Acrobat crashes.  Sometimes it doesn't crash until I reduce file size.  It always happens when it is actually saving the file.  Usually I am overwriting a file with a newer version but not always and either way I get a crash.  I copied my crash report below.  Please help.  This reduces my productivity greatly.

    I'm going to leave this open here in case anyone has some ideas, but since this is an Acrobat crash (it looks like it might have something to do with security), you should cross post in the Acrobat forum.

  • Acrobat 9.5.1 Crashing when printing secure pdf files

    Had this problem with all versions of 9.0 or later, updated in hopes of it fixing the problem. Acrobat just stops working when I try to print secure files. They work fine on machines with older versions of acrobat or reader though. I've tried going to Preferences/General to turn of Certified mode but it's enabled Yes is greyed out and does not allow me to change it.

    It will start to send pages to the printer, showing the Progress bar but then it will Stop Working.
