Printing from Sewers is a fairly memory intensive operation for printers due to all of the graphics that have to be reproduced. Most printing issues stem from lower end printers not having enough memory to queue up everything on a page. Below are some suggestions to try if you are having printing problems.

  • Print to PDF. Why print at all when you can send out a pdf.
  • Turn off spec sheet maximization on the Spec Sheets tab of the Preferences Editor.
  • Turn off print spooling - it takes less memory on the part of the printer if the document is printed directly to it instead of printing the document to a file and printing in the background. The drawback is that it will tie up your computer while it is printing.
  • Turn off including spec sheets in the Preferences Editor. Spec sheets are big bitmap images that require a lot of memory to print.
