PDFCreator hangs in "Preparing" for some web pages


#1

I am using PDFCreator 2.4.1 with Windows 7/Firefox 50.1.0.

On some html pages, the print works OK. On more complex pages (ie with graphics), the “preparing” window comes up, the CPU usage goes through the roof (60-80%), the Cancel button is greyed out, Firefox shows the “Not Responding” status, and clicking the red X causes Firefox to go away.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

could you post a screenshot of this?
I am not 100% sure which window you are getting.

Best regards,

Hi,

this is not a PDFCreator window, you’d get the same printing to any other printer as this is during the spooling part of the job, so a combniation of windows spooler and Firefox problems or just insufficient memory.
