i have just changed fron adobe 7 to adobe 8 and am unale to print part pages i select the part page ok and get a message that the selection has been copied ithen go file>print and get a preview screen showing the selected portion and click ok and then i get a printer preview which shows a blank page or sometimes a part of my selection and this is what my printer prints
tried the paste into word but what i am copying is a map i downloaded and when i pasted i got 8 pages of text and one page of text and map. i have now opened up the file in photoshop cropped one half and printed then cropped the other half and printed but the point is that this is a long process and the select and print which worked in adobe7 dosent wok in v8 incidentley after looking at adobe help i tried to print the selection as an image but adobe had a turn and said it needed to close down
I've just tried this (not with a map) and got it to work using Adobe 8 using the method described in the help files using Tools - Select and Zoom and Snapshot tools and then print graphic. I also got it to work by using Tools - Select and Zoom and Marquee Zoom and putting a box around the part of the page and then selecting print and selection.
yes i used the method woolwell described but to no avail the best i got was about 30% of selection to print. iuninstalled and reinstalled and got the same results so ive gone back to v7 which works perfectly and gives a better print than going via photoshop which rasterises before printing. the file iwas working on was park official map of yellowstone national park downloaded from parks site
woolwell when you selected did the colours invert momentarily or stay inverted? when i usedv8 they remained inverted even after the "the selected area has been copied" message appeared whereas in v7 the inversion dissapears almost immediately
dont have the knowhow to send link but i went to yellowston nps>plan your visit>things to know before you come>list of yellowstone maps>official park map 1.4mb pdf i had no problem printing complete map with v8 and 7 only problems with part page with v8
