Error Printing on Mac: Unable to Convert to Postscript File

Created:   |   Updated:

There are occasions in which printers that are connected to Mac computers do not have the ability to convert to postscript files in a way that can be "read" to print by the printer. Some drivers do not have the ability to rasterize the PDF file.

Luckily, there is an easy fix. You can simply print the file from Acrobat or Preview.

If you are still experiencing problems, follow these steps:

  1. open the Advanced menu in Acrobat from the Acrobat print dialog.

  2. Select Print As Image. The quality of the printed document may differ when using this method.
