I am at my wits end with my Canon MX700. It won't print certain PDF files (through both Preview and Adobe Reader) and it will not print ANY text files (Word and Text file). It does prints text and pictures (no PDFs though) in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.
I've uninstall and reinstall it many times, using various methods such as "resetting printing system" and uninstalling/reinstall the Canon MX drivers (both from Apple and Canon's website) and completely deleting the Canon folder in my HD>Library>Printers folder. Also have tried installing other MX printer drivers and still no luck. Same goes for previous versions of the MX700 printer drivers. I still cannot get certain file formats to print! Argh!! I am very frustrated because this printer is fairly new (it worked fine on my old Windows computer and had it stored away for years until recently). I have Windows partioned on Bootcamp, but even on Windows (through Bootcamp), the printer doesn't work. The printer itself works fine on my old Windows laptop, so I know it's not the printer. I'm no software engineer/expert, but I strongly think it's something with Apple's printer software since I am able to print on browsers.
I am runnning OS X 10.8.2 on my Mac Mini. I already updated to the most recent Canon printer drivers from Apple (Canon Printer Drivers v2.11 for OS X) and that still hasn't solved this printing issue. Was experiencing this issue prior to updating to the most recent drivers as well.
I consider myself fairly tech savvy, so feel free to suggest anything helpful, even if it involves some coding or whatever. Please help. I am really at my wits end, and as much as I'd love to punch and smash my Canon MX700 printer, purchasing a new printer is NOT an option, so I'd like to keep both printer & my sanity intact, thankyouverymuch.
