Print to pdf from internet explorer 11

We have a client who prints several pages from a web print to pdf from internet explorer 11. Most of the time it works fine. However, occasionally, Internet Explorer 8 only prints the first page, even when All Pages is selected.

We did occasionally experience this on our own machines too. It happens on different printers and printer drivers of all kinds. Yes, IE8 is fully patched. We’ve only tried this on Windows XP–not sure if others have the problem but we only care about Windows XP right now. Not sure what version of WinXP client has, but we run SP3 here. I’ve never really experienced this one before in all my years of IT.

This is only partly-related, and as such I will not submit it as an answer. But I’ll post it to garner some insight. Back in ’98, I had just rolled out 5 desktops with Office 97. Try as I might, I could not get the stubborn install to budge, it would simply not print. Use comments to ask for more information or suggest improvements. Avoid answering questions in comments.

My form is 7 pages long but only prints 1 page in Internet Explorer. I think this issue is related to absolute positioning of elements in your HTML page. After I made the change the page prints correctly. Also, overflow settings can cause the same problem. I’m not sure if this will help you, because you say you have tried multiple printers, but recently I had a client with this exact problem with an HP all-on-one.
