Use Acrobat to print PDFs that fail in Preview Apps
We have a Brother 1270N ethernet printer which works in OS X quite nicely most of the time. It will, however, occasionally fail to print PDF's in Preview. The printer spits out a page, but it just says "ERROR NAME: limitcheck ... COMMAND: Type42BuildGlyph ... OPERAND STACK". Not exactly what I was expecting to see. I just assumed it was a fault of the printer driver or maybe a graphic in the PDF file.

Not sure why I hadn't tried it before, but tonight I discovered that the bundled Acrobat Reader printed every one of my troublesome PDF files perfectly. Needless to say, I've now switched my default app for PDF's to Acrobat Reader!
