Do you mean "print to a PDF file".... or are you actually talking about sending a PDF to a physical printer

In the printer settings/preferences, see if there is a setting to "Print as an image"  and try that.

No I wasnt printing to a PDF, I was sending the PDF doc from within Adobe directly to a physical printer.

I'll try the Print as Image option.

OK... that sounds more like an issue with the print driver (and nothing to do with Adobe).   As a test, can you print to the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" (or some other printer) to see if that works.
