My macbook pro will not print PDF files - I had to change some settings previously and it worked for a while but just stopped again recently.  I can't remember what settings I changed before to make it work.  Can anyone help me?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    What program are you tring to print from? What happens when you select Print? Can you print anything else?

    You should press command P and that should bring up the print pane, select PDF in the bottom cornrer and after youpress PDF you can choose to name it, where to save it.Screen shot 2013-02-06 at 9.11.31 AM.pngScreen shot 2013-02-06 at 9.14.13 AM.pngScreen shot 2013-02-06 at 9.16.44 AM.pngScreen shot1 2013-02-06 at 9.11.31 AM.pngScreen shot3 2013-02-06 at 9.14.13 AM.pngScreen shot5 2013-02-06 at 9.16.44 AM.png

    Open the file in Preview and try to print from there. Does that work? Are you using the latest Adobe Reader application.
