printing Vanguard .PDFs

Post by rgar98 » Mon Jan 13, 2020 7:23 pm

Hello,
I just tried to print some tax info from the Vanguard site and the PDF file I downloaded doesn't print (CanonLPB6230dw); I can print "other" PDFs but the one from Vanguard causes a "filter failed" error msg. I'm using a MAC/Catalina OS. Suggestions welcomed.

Thanks,
Richard

Does the file that you downloaded has a pdf extension?

I suppose you might want to post a link to the PDF, so that others might attempt to print the same file. Otherwise, I will say: User error in the download.

No error. One "click" and the file is mine.

I assume you are using preview. Try acrobat reader.

i printed my Vanguard Tax Form today. It said TaxForm.pdf. That was on my MacBook Air.

Maybe you should download the form again and see what happens.

Assuming preview can open the file you downloaded, can you “print” it into a different (new) PDF file and then print to the printer from that?

I have all my Vanguard documents sent electronically EXCEPT for tax forms. Why print them when Vanguard will snail mail them to you?
