    It's not elegant, but it gets the job done!

    I'm not sure what plugin error you're getting, but you don't need to "right click" anything in preview. (?)

     

    Sorry, if it didn't work for you. I use it all the time as a work around.

    Are you using SAFARI as your browser? I remember trying it before with Camino and it wouldn't work.

    I have the same problem- I use Safari and it has happened in all of the os versions I've used, Snow Leopard, Lion, you name it.  You would think after shelling out $2000 for a macbook things would work considering apple has the computer market cornered, but apparently not everyone is on the same page.

     

    Anyways- this is how I made it work so I don't have to go to the post office to ship all international packages-

     

    Go through the process to print your internationl label through ebay/paypal.

     

    When the label appears in the pitney bowes page, there is a link to make the label appear larger in a new pop-up window (this link is right about the label.)

     

    Open this link.  Go through and take screen shots of each half-page (the international labels are 4 half pages.)  That's shift-command-3.

     

    I then open Photoshop (assumably any somewhat decent image manipulating software will work), create a new docurment that is 8.5 x 11, and cut and paste each half page (so you will do this twice, and end up printing two 8 1/2 x 11 photoshop images of the documents.)  You have to do it by halves because the full 8 1/2 x 11 original will not fit on the screenshot.

     

    It is a pain, but the documents are clear and legible, and it doesn't take that long. Not nearly as long as the post office does to fill out international forms.  Also, now you can qualify for any online shipping discounts and your customer can track their packages much easier.

    I found a solution that worked for me...  I could see the label in the window, but clicking on the "Print" button did nothing...  If you're in a similar situation, try this:

     

    Right-click on the label and select "Save PDF As..." then save it to your desktop.  Open the .pdf file in Adobe Reader and print it like normal...  Worked perfectly for me.

     

    Hope this helps,

    L.

    Was having similar issues in foxfire, did safari and had to hit the open label window, then select my printer.

    youv posted in the wrong discussion. We are here to discuss Keynote; which is a screen based image presentation application  and nothing to do with web browser printing issues.

     

    I suggest posting in the Safari discussion which is Apples web browser.

    After years of going somewhere other than my house to print eBay international labels, I just found a solution that worked for me. I recently purchased a new mac mini and for some reason, I thought I would finally be able to print my international labels. I was a fool. A frustrated fool. Now I'm a fool for thinking I was a fool!

     

    Here is what worked for me just a few minutes ago.

     

    When you click print label and your print settings box comes up, choose advanced. Then Choose print as image.

     

    The window that would normally show what is about to print was blank but, my USPS priority international label printed. First time in about 2 years I was able to print one. If your print settings window has the same options, it should work.

     

    Good Luck
