I'm veiwing a .pdf using Acrobat 7.0 Professional that 2 different people have added comments to.  One is very legible and the other is not as clear but, readable.  When you print the .pdf the second set of comments if unreadable is there anything I can do with this?

I don't know for sure but I think using the built in method, the .pdf was sent to me with the comments. I say this because if you click on them on screen what comes up is akin to a yellow sticky post-it note and that must be Adobe functionality.

As I said before one persons comments print fine and the other persons comments do not.

One other thing I have noticed is that when you tell it to print with comments it very quickly comes up with a number of pages of print and all appears to be fine and good to go. However, when you come out of the print run (which as noted doesn't work). There is a status bar at the bottom of the screen, not previously visible, called "Summarizing Comments" that appears to be hung up. i.e. the green boxes inside the status box are lit up about 75% from left to right but then a going no further.

the yellow stickies shouldn't have a problem printing.... that is very odd. Could be a faulty file or printer driver. Try getting who ever sent you the file to print it out and see if its fine or not. If it does print out fine for them get them to re-send the file and try again.

You need to find out if its the file or the printer. Try another printer your self if you can.
