Printing "all pages" in Publisher

Recommended Posts

when printing directly from Publisher - just text to an Epson laser printer - only the first page is printed even though "entire document" is selected in the print range dialogue (the pages area is left blank). Current page or any page numbers or page range specified print correctly. Does this mean one has to always specify the page numbers to be printed? There seems to be no "all pages" option in the dialogue box... Exporting to PDF and printing that does not have this issue. Is there a problem with the print driver?

Yes, possibly a printer driver (update?) issue of your specific printer or OS, rather than an AfPub bug:

At least I get a print file for all pages processed in my print queue, both with print or save/print as pdf:

Also I can scroll through all pages before print in the preview page numbers:

Hi Thomaso, 

Thanks for your reply.

I can scroll through all the pages in preview, everything appears to be as it should be in the print dialogue box but Publisher will only print the first page of a document unless I specify the page numbers or "current page". I can print the output (to PDF for example) of the same file without issue. In fact I can print without problem from all my other software so I do think it's a bug with Publisher. I noticed there are many posts about printing problems maybe it's something in Publisher's print routines?

The often reported print issues are crashes which apparently resulted in a currently existing bug with mixed color spaces and profiles and can, according to the moderators comments, get avoided by using the same color profile for input, document and output. Other issues are related to print quality, for instance transparency and flattening, and can currently be avoided by an according setup in the print dialog.

For investigation of your issue by the developer team it would be useful to know your OS version, printer model and driver version.
Also a screenshot of your print options setup might be helpful.
