    Photoshop CS6: There was an error opening your printer. Fix for Windows 8.1 - not sure Apple?

    I've had a few friends that work in offices where they often have to print to PDF or a Document writer and then get the error:

    Photoshop CS6: There was an error opening your printer.

    How to fix this in Windows, not sure if it'll be the same on apple, it's basically that the PDF printer or Document writer is set as the default printer.

    If you copy this into the address bar of a window open in windows 8.1:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers

    it'll show you the list of printers, right click the one you want to use and choose the option

    Set as default printer

    Re-open the files you were trying to print in Photoshop CS6 and choose print and it should work.

    Hope that helps. If not do let me know and I'll see if I can find another work around.

    regards
    Gav.
