Anyone else having printing issues?  When I try to print the wrappers, I can only choose between save and cancel.  I use to see print button.  I know it's not my printer as this site is the only one I'm having trouble printing from.  Were changes made to they system or something?

I have this problem all the time...and not just with PBS...

I use Google Chrome for my 'browser'...When I download to print a PDF, Google Chrome will often reset my 'Printer' Selection' from the printer I have connected to my computer, to an 'online' printer which does not exist for my computer...so my computer hesitates and then offers to save the document as a PDF...


When you have these issues take a look at the box where you select the 'print' button, chances are that it says save vice print or something other than your printers name (usually a printer model number)....in the 2nd box just below the top box (more like 2nd section) is a 'Destination Printer' selection button...select that button and re-select your printer model number in the drop-down menu....

I never had this problem until the Post Office and PBS did away with the 'Delivery Confirmation only' feature a couple of years back....ever since then this has become an issue on my computer - and to be honest I cannot see any connection between that and PDF's...but that's life.

....I just now had to print out a mailing label and the same thing happen a moment ago....I reset my "Destination" printer to the model I have and everything worked alllright...I'm sure I'll have to redo this again (and again, and again) as it don't seem to want to keep it in 'memory' forever...


Good luck!

I printed a label today and didn't have any issues.
