I suddenly stumbled upon this problem. I'm using TexnixCenter using Latex->PDF. I have never had any problems with printing, but recently this message starts turning up... (Document cannot be printed - no pages were selected)

I can still print other PDF documents, so the problem seems to be in my file. I just cannot seem to find it...

Any suggestions?

  • Well, a good starting point would be to post the document code here (if it's not too long), so we can have something to work with. :D – Alenanno May 19 '15 at 8:42
  • I know, but it's an entire book with many included files. I was hoping someone else had experienced a similar problem :) – Lars Nersveen May 19 '15 at 8:45
  • By printing, do you mean physically printing pages or typesetting a PDF? – Alenanno May 19 '15 at 8:47
  • I mean physically printing the finished PDF. At the moment I'm trying to print it to another PDF, but it doesn't work... – Lars Nersveen May 19 '15 at 8:55
  • What program do you use to view PDFs? The PDF might be corrupted. In that case, you can try moving it to another folder, typesetting it again in Latex and then try printing. – Alenanno May 19 '15 at 8:56

I faced the same issue.

Try to open the pdf file using any browser say Google Chrome or Firefox using path like file://C:/Documents/my-pdf-file.pdf

Then try to print.

The issue is with signatures or security in pdf document, which restrict PDF viewer to print the document.
