That Issue is from 4 years ago. (Chrome version 13! 13! Wow. Remember when version numbers meant something? ) Printing to PDF has been a feature in Chrome for years. Why even bother using a 3rd party plugin to print to PDFs anymore?
Just posting this in case anyone else runs afoul of it. And hoping that someone else might have a workaround.
The Issue also tells you the workaround: Use Chrome's Print to PDF feature instead of the 3rd party plugin.
That's not a workaround, and I said that in the original post. It's a cop out. PDF Factory has other features that print to PDF doesn't have.
- Combine multiple documents into one PDF: Even from multiple sources.
- Rearrange pages using thumbnail view
- Instant preview: Without having to save and open in Acrobat.
- Security: Encrypt and control access to PDF files:
- Font embedding: All original fonts are displayed, even if the reader does not have them.
- Page insertion and deletion: Delete unwanted content before the PDF is created.
- Send via email: eMail PDFs with one click. Copy PDF to clipboard for pasting into an existing email.
- Drag & Drop: Easy integration with Evernote, Gmail and other cloud based facilities.
- Create PDFs on letterhead.
- Add page numbering, headers, footers, watermarks.
- Bookmark each job automatically.
- Create table of contents automatically.
- Convert to grayscale.
- PDF/A archiving.
- Add text notes.
- Fill in forms.
- Crop pages.
- Edit text.
- Add multiple signatures and initials with Notes function
- Combine documents into a single PDF and rearrange them.
- Custom Drivers for specific tasks.
- Text highlight, copy and redact.
- Graphic copy, delete, save.
- Convert text to links.
Just because the Print to PDF is good enough for your
uses, doesn't mean it's good enough for everyone's
. Nor that it's right. And if it's from version 13, it seems as if they would have done something
not to cripple every other use of it. This isn't a plugin to Chrome, it's a standard printer driver. And they're sending rastarized flattened version for our own good. They said there was a fix in 17, but here we are, years later, and it still hasn't been fixed.
