    When I try to print a PDF embedded in a website, it won't print the text, why?

    It'll print everything but the test, but instead of the texts, I get these right triangles with an arched hypotenuse. What do I do?! Thanks.

    Sounds like you need to consult a geometry teacher.

    Can you try saving the PDF to your hard drive (with windows, right-click on the link to it and select "Save As") and then opening it in Acrobat Reader?

    That's your problem; you're using a browser with non-euclidean geometry.

    Try saving the file and printing from acrobat reader. Or using the print button from the acrobat plugin and not the browser's print button.

    try saving it within acrobat as a different document type. TIFF would probably be your best bet because it won't try to analyze the text and convert it, although it will save each page as an individual file (why is acrobat so ********?).

    Bingo, you are correct with that, thank you!
