Hello-

This is what I get when I try to "print to iPhone" from my iMac....

"Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save."

I'm not trying to "save" anything, I'm trying to "print to iPhone" from the PDF option in the drop down list. Can you help? Any suggestions?

Hi!

Adobe Acrobat - as well as some other PDF viewers - block the use of PDF services.

The work around is to drag the PDF file directly on the ACTPrinter Mac icon.

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, this work around isn't working either. When I drag the pdf file out of the address bar on my iMac and onto the ACTPrinter icon on my desktop, all it does is give me a link/icon on my desktop to the same site the pdf file is on. Any suggestions?

Hi!

You must have slipped while dragging and dropped the PDF file next to the ACTPrinter icon.

Be sure to drop the file onto the ACTPrinter Mac icon: release the mouse when the ACTPrinter Mac icon is highlighted.

Thanks for your reply. No slip though. I've tried dropping it a dozen times directly on the icon to no avail......Any other suggestions?

Hi!

ACTPrinter Mac can only open PDF files.

What is the type of your file?
From Which application did printing fail?

For PDF files, you may also control-click in the Finder and chose Open With…ACTPrinter Mac from the contextual menu.

It's a pdf file from within the Safari address bar. I'm not sure what the problem is......
Also, if I delete the desktop icon, how and where do I download the desktop version again? I cannot find it anywhere on your site.....

Hi!

ACTPrinter Mac is available from [URL=http://www.houdah.com/iPhone]http://www.houdah.com/iPhone[/URL].

If you are dragging from Safari, you are probably dragging the file's URL rather than dragging the actual file. You should try saving the file and then dragging the saved file.

Actually, I would suggest you skip on the Adobe Acrobat plug-in for Safari. The built-in PDF viewer is much faster. With the default viewer PDF services should work fine.
