I am encountering this problem and cannot get the print option 'active' on Photoshop in CS3 Design Premium.
It's a new, clean install on Windows Vista Business.
I have tried:
- deleting the preferences file
- installing all available new updates
I can print out files in any other program, including other CS3 applications, it's ONLY Photoshop which won't let me print.
It may be a coincidental problem, but I can't use CTRL+SHIFT+S to 'save as'... the shortcut opens a window for my laptop's spec.
can anyone help me get my print option back?!
ok, I seem to have fixed it for anyone having issues...
i changed my default printer to Adobe PDF and restarted Photoshop and the print options are back!
however the ctrl+shift+s shortcut is still not working
thanks John all the shortcuts seem to be ok in Photoshop... it seems to be that the laptop/OS/Windows shortcut is over-riding Photoshop's.
not sure where to look in Control Panel to deactivate the laptop's CTRL+SHIFT+S command
I just had the same thing happen on both my CS4 64 bit and 32 bit version of Photoshop - it took a few moments to realize that I had done some silly thing. I had set the Image->Mode->RGB and 32 Bits - printers dont know about alpha channels doh.. set it back to 16 bit and evrything will be fine.
Glad to be of help. - THe only reason I figured this out was because I was familiar with the whole concept of alpha channels from the video production side. Hence, I was doing some video sequences using the photoshop timeline and making a transparent background. Which is a whole different topic. But in any case, glad to be of service.
