Q - question

PDF print error - cannot print document.

A - answer When trying to print a PDF file (originally from a CAD application, or other) using Adobe Acrobat Reader, Acrobat displays the error message "Cannot print document" or "No pages were selected" or "A drawing error has occurred" (Es ist ein Grafikfehler aufgetreten):

Such errors may have various reasons - print driver, wrong structure of the PDF file, insufficient disk space, problem with print spooler, low RAM, collision with another application, etc. Usually a system restart will help.

If all attempts fail, print your PDF file as an image - in the print dialog click on "Advanced" settings and check "Print as image":
