Paused Printer
Authored by: Yuckandmuck on Sep 24, '10 04:56:13AM

This seems to work for normal documents. However, it gets stuck why I try printing a protected PDF (bank statement). The document shows up as a print job, but the (virtual) printer immediately goes into Paused mode. Clicking Resume doesn't help - just goes back to Paused until I delete the job. Fwiw, the protected PDF does print fine using a real printer. I did reboot after installing VipRiser and also made sure the VipRiser app was running before I printed (also added to Login Items). Still no joy. Running OS X 10.6.4. Any ideas?

I wonder if this happens because you are trying to print it to the virtual printer. The virtual printer works with the 'source' of the document directly (it can modify it etc.) so allowing it to print it would be a security hole.

But the same protected PDF prints just fine to a regular printer. I'm not sure how the PDF can detect that it's being "printed" to a physical printer vs a virtual one (e.g. VipRiser). An earlier reply indicated success using VipRiser to "save" (i.e. print) protected PDFs, so I was hopeful this would work.
