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.
