    PDF taking a long time to print (Adobe Acobat 7.0)

    I have recently setup a new GoPrint station for my lab. I have 2 HP Laserjet 5 printers in the lab. Everything can print fine except .pdf files. Anytime a User trys to print .pdf file it takes a very long time to print, almost 30 minutes for a 26k file. I have updated the Adobe Acorbat, made sure that I have enough memory in the printers. I am not sure why everything else can print right away but when it comes to a .pdf file it just sits there in the que. I have tried the PCL,PCL5e driver's for the printers and it still takes a very long time.

    Try changing the printer driver to a HP LJ4.

    We have a mix of LJ4's, 5's and 6's here, and to get the same results out of all printers, I found that telling them they were all LJ4's got uniform results. Funnily enough, I had an identical problem last week where we had a new pc hooked up to an LJ5 that was taking several minutes to print a pdf (using Acrobat Reader 6). Changing the driver resolved it instantly.

    Did you try a standard HP 4 driver? - not PCL?

    (If you reply to me rather than yourself, I'll get notification of it - I wasn't aware you had replied.)
