SYMPTOMS

When you try to print a Web page that consists of frames with a Portable Document Format (PDF) frame hosted inside one of them, the PDF frame is not printed. This behavior occurs even if you try to use the "As laid out on screen" or "All Frames Individually" feature.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because the Adobe Acrobat program is hosting the document and it provides PDF printing functionality.

RESOLUTION

To work around this behavior, click the Print icon in the PDF window to print the PDF file.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
