HP Photosmart C4750 misprinting in Windows 10 with Adobe and MS Word.

Because this information should be available to Microsoft, Adobe, and HP, I"m putting it here.  I created a document in Microsoft Word.  Printing it from Microsoft Word mostly works fine.

I printed it to a PDF using doPDF and the resulting file looks great. In Adobe Reader, I printed it to my HP Photosmart C4750 and one of the options was "Save ink/toner." There is a help link that leads to Adobe's site, so I assume that Adobe is responsible for the problem, described below.

I printed the resulting PDF and everything was printed twice, the second copy being about 1/3 of a millimeter below the first copy, and little bit lighter. I figured my ink cartridges might be misaligned, so I printed the alignment page, scanned it, the printer reported that they were aligned, and then I tried again.  The problem persisted.  I saw that the "Save ink/toner" option was on, so I turned it off, and then the PDF came out almost perfectly. There is a textbox (created by MS Word) on the PDF and that box, and only that box, and all the text in it, still shows the problem. However, the problem shows up on that textbox even when I print directly from MS Word, so it is likely the case that some particular instructions between the HP printer and the software delivering printing commands to it is causing this problem, and that the Adobe printer uses them to "save ink/toner" while MS Word uses it for textboxes.

Thanks for the Click!

If you believe
  • that the initiation of force is wrong;
  • that the institution of government relies on initiatory violence against peaceful people;
  • and that taxation is stealing
– then you meet the basic definition of being a voluntaryist.

We offer you a choice:
If you'd like to learn more, please visit our website, voluntaryist.com, or join the Voluntaryist Telegram group in which lots of questions get asked and answered.  There may even be a meetup in your area, just search for "voluntaryist."

If you love voluntaryism enough to donate toward its ongoing expansion, there are several options:
  1. If you send bitcoin to the address on the voluntaryist site (1N9chGG4Dpp8Lw1eDye9wjiskAVqaiCi2Y), AND you email the Transaction ID to the webmaster (me) at webmaster (at) voluntaryist.com (or send it to me through Telegram, @dscotese), then I will know that this donation resulted from the ad you clicked and it will be used as described below.
  2. If you find something you'd like to buy on the voluntaryist website, the proceeds of the sale will go the site's owner (Carl Watner).  I've been his webmaster for about seven years.
  3. If you'd like to donate a cryptocurrency other than bitcoin, please email me (see the email address in #1 above).
How Donations Will Be Used:
Donations identified as described in #1 above will be handled by me, Dave Scotese, in the following manner:
  1. The first 0.004 BTC will go to the designer of the ad you clicked
  2. The next $200 worth of BTC will go to Carl to reimburse him for hosting fees for two years.  In June of 2021, that will be paid again and this item will jump to the top of this list again.
  3. 5% of any donation after the first two items are covered will be used to compensate our ad designer and encourage the creation of more ads to help spread voluntaryism.
  4. The rest of the donated BTC will be spent on placing the ads our designer makes in places that may attract more people to the personal responsibility and respect for individual liberty that voluntaryism promotes. Where this money is spent will be discussed by me (Dave Scotese) and our designer, Greyman Design (greymandesign@protonmail.com).
A record of these donations will be listed at the end of this post.
By the way, even if you don't donate, you can help by sharing our website or Ken Schoolland's Philosophy of Liberty video.
