Sigh... Bizarre... She could print everything else... just not that... It's locked against some things, but I managed to print it, but I have the full version of Acrobat...

No idea...

And no - didn't try on the Mac. :P ;D

Target:
no answers, but we have had similar experiences with PDF's that will not print on one printer, but will print quite happily on another...

prints here as well using PDF x-change viewer.. looked into the document's permission and there is no restriction. in fact printing is set to 'High Resolution'. something is wrong with Adobe, i guess?

Weird, printed fine here. Only thing I noticed is that it appears to be A4, and I'm US 8.5x11. But the page scalling option on Adobe reader did fine with it ... Now if that wasn't set/adjusted to fit contents to page ... Some printers may tend to (fail/error) react badly to the print job.

Seems like you guys have it nailed there -- it's a printer specific problem for the PDF. It's just bizarre though.

Again, odd.

I tried to unlock the PDF and failed. I wanted to try to convert it to a DOC or RTF or anything else to see if she could print that way.

In any event, it's just seeming extremely bizarre that a printer-specific problem would surface for a PDF in Acrobat Reader, but not in the Acrobat plugin for Firefox (the browser that it did print in). I guess the print job is sent by Firefox there, and that somehow gets around the issue.

Don't ya just love computers sometimes? :D :P
