why cant i print pdfs? Answered

ok i want to print a pdf and i cant get it and the three months arnt up yet
this is what i want https://www.instructables.com/id/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle/?download=pdf


Did you actually click on the PDF file link on that page? The PDF is perfectly fine and saves to my desktop.

So if you can get the PDF, it would be polite (especially for staff) if you updated your text above to reflect that fact. As it is, it still sounds like you can't get the PDF and want someone to help you.

Did you download the generated PDF file you can see in GIANT ORANGE LETTERS at the bottom of the screen shot?

"Didn't work." That is insufficient information. What error message did you get? Did you get a PDF file saved on your desktop, maybe?

also i got this file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/greg/Desktop/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle.htm or this file:///C:/pdf/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle.pdf

That is the PDF file! You should be able to print that. Or load it into Adobe Reader or whatever PDF viewer you have on your machine.

no i got a link and if i click to view online its white or it goes back to the same thing

from the link you posted above,
  • find the PDF icon link and right click> save link as...
  • save to your desktop
  • open document>file>print
  • ensure you have the correct printer installed/configured
