I use System 7.6.1. I have several problems with printing (LaserWriter 4/600). Either there is a postscript error or a can't print at all in office programs (Word, Excel) or I can't print in Acrobat Reader . Could you please name me the drivers (and versions) I need and their location to load down??!! Or is there an other reason causing these problems?

Hi,

What I think may be causing your problems is a rather simple one, but one that gets overlooked alot.  In the print dialog box, (assuming that you're using the LaserWriter 8.4 driver) go to (I think) the options section.  Look for an option that is something like "document encoding."  There should be 3 options in a radio-button-style format:  ASCII, BINARY, HEX.  Select ASCII and then try to print (ASCII is esp. important in Acrobat).  If that doesn't work, turn on the postscript error reporting and get back to me with an error message.  I've run into this problem before, and 9 times out of ten, the document encoding buttons were the fix...

Hope it helps.

Since I worked with an older driver, I first installed LaserWriter 8.4.2. Furthermore I deinstalled Acrobat Reader in order check what problem it's causing.

Now I can't print at all (Postscript Error). I guess the possible reason is, that I don't have the GX drivers installed?! Is this true?

Thank you in advance for your help.
