Hi -
I've had this happen once before, very frustrating. Everything's fine 
with Photoshop and suddenly I cannot print. I get this error message:

/There was an error opening your printer. Printing functions will not be 
available until you have selected a printer and reopened any documents./

/All/ print functions are grayed out, even the PrintOne Copy, and I 
could not"select a printer" if my life depended on it, as there is no 
option for that. Saving the file as something else doesn't work, and 
even printing a different file won't work.

I reinstalled printer drivers. Installed the latest update to Photoshop 
(it had just come in; i am using Pshop CC on a Mac). Restarted. 
Unplugged the printer and waited. restarted. Shut down and restarted. Zip.

I can print from every other Adobe product but Photoshop.

The last time I had to call tech support and spend ages and let thetech 
take over my computer; he reset Photoshop's preferences. I cannot find 
the preferences to try and reset them myself, I don't want to spend an 
hour with tech support and I don't really like letting someone else I 
don't know take over my computer.

I see on a Google search that others have this same issue, and it's been 
going on for several years, why they don't fix it is a puzzle, and a 
maddening one for all the $$ I spend to own this.

Any suggestions?
