Issues with Printing Electronic Documents

The signature on your document prints as a black box

  • ISPO has tested printing electronic documents issued by our Advisors, and the documents printed without any issues using the current version of the standard Adobe Acrobat software.
  • If you are experiencing this issue, try using different PDF readers (such as a different version or edition of the Adobe Acrobat, or some other 3rd party software) to open the document and print it from there.
  • This Adobe Support page outlines several potential solutions to this issue.
    • One of the solutions outlined on the Adobe Support page is to use the “Print As Image” option under the “Advanced” settings in the “Print” dialog window.
    • In case the “Print As Image” option is not available directly in your “Print” dialog window, you can try to first save the PDF document as an image and then print that image.
    • You can also try taking a screenshot of the document and print the screenshot.
