I'm having this same problem with Reader X. I checked the print spooling settings and they seem fine. The same thing but from an Indesign file prints fine.
Any ideas anyone?
If you had Acrobat or Indesign you could flatten it first but with Reader there's nothing you can do if that is how your printer needs it. Alternatively the person who created the PDF could have made a flattenned version but that's not really recommended.
That's true I could flatten it that way but its not how the printer needs it. Prior to the update, reader would simply flatten it once, and the printer would make x number of copies. Now it wants to flatten for each copy. Ideally it would go back to how it was before as we loose flexibilty with our pdfs if we flatten them.
