Unable to print

PostWed Apr 20, 2016 3:04 am

When I installed the last update a few days ago I am unable to print. No print options or other information come up after selecting printing just a blue spinning busy icon. Windows 8 is the operation version and have not had any problems before the update. I had an older version on a usb drive that printed then was updated with the latest and no printing from then on.

I've had that same problem before but not at the moment. The only way I fixed it was with a combination of uninstalling FFoR, uninstalling the print driver, reinstalling print driver then FFoR. You could also try reinstalling Java run time environment on your machine amongst the other steps.

I never found an exact answer. It seemed to be a random combination of actions and the fact that Buhallin switched on Java debug the last time it happened, which theoretically shouldn't change anything with printing.

I suspect there is some bug going on with the Java library used for printing.

Your best bet is probably to do the print preview and use the windows snapping tool to paste it into something you can print from.
