Page Numbers Not Printing In PDF: What You Should Know

Sep 27, 2023 — I've been having problems printing page numbers on some PDF files downloaded from Apple. In some cases I even get error messages that the document is only available in the Apple PDF Viewer. I'm guessing the problem seems to lie within Apple's PDF Viewer. I've set my footer setting to the printer default of 1/2″. Does anyone have an idea of how I can make this file print the pages? Thanks! The only thing I've been able to figure out using Acrobat in this case is that the problem is a problem with the PDF File. Any advice is welcome, thanks. PDF Pages of Different Sizes Nov 21, 2023 — Sometimes I can't print page numbers for a new file that's supposed to be page sized. Usually it's a few inches out. This is most noticeable in PDFs that have been compressed. I assume the problem is that the PDF file is set so that “page size” is always 2.5×3×1.5 pages. Some PDF file types, like the one linked below, can set the page size to “page size” that is 1.5×3. This is really confusing, because you should expect the “page size” to show the size of the PDF file, and you shouldn't expect that it should show what the original document might have looked like. Unable to print page numbers for new PDF file Oct 14, 2023 — The pages of some PDF files would be off centered in the PDF but not all Pages would be of different height. It would only happen when using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, not when I paid for Adobe and have paid for Acrobat too. The problem could not be reproduced with a different PDF file. This could also be an Acrobat limitation that can no longer be accessed. In addition, I have to use a PDF viewer, e.g. the paid version of Acrobat. Paper Size Change Jun 27, 2023 — There have been some issues with the PDFs printed from the Adobe site. I have tried to print and then try again. I think this issue is a problem with the Acrobat PDF viewer and not with the PDF file. If this is the case then I am not able to print the PDF files from the Adobe site. It may be that these Acrobat PDF files are too big for us to print. It seems that when the PDF is printed with Acrobat it is set to print 8in x 11in.
