Hi. I haven't been here in quite a while. But you all know what is going on in AR while I have been busy flying spaceships. The question is, are any of you having trouble printing out recipes? I haven't been able to print one in about a month. I have tried on several different computers, but am at a loss. I did contact AR, but in the meantime... you guys are the best resource! Thanks.

I haven't had any trouble. I hope you can figure it out. That is annoying.:)

I just don't understand!! Tried to print a recipe to make with my granddaughter. I thought that my printer was out of ink. But I can print anything other than AR.

Are you sure you haven't changed your router or internet connection? or is your printer working with any other sites "online"? it could be that there is an issue with your printer, or the internet connection to your printer. try any other online site and see what happens..if you still can't print anything while online you need to have your internet connection to the printer checked.

foodiemonster, I have tried on my work computer as well (I know, shame on me). And other sites print just fine.

i want a ride on that spaceship...i'll buy gas if you let me take it for a spin.

Hi, gderr! Too funny! Spaceships can't run on gas! I think they are powered by the Improbability Drive. Here is a link to Eve. Don't blame me if you get addicted.

Several on here have at various times reported printing issues since the AR upgrades a few months ago. My guess is that certain combinations of web browsers and printers/print drivers are no longer compatible. Since everyone can have different configurations, just because some have no issues doesn't mean that others won't. If you are able to print from other sites, then obviously the issue is more site specific. I like to copy/paste AR recipes to Word so I can format as desired, not waste ink on useless adds as well as modify the directions if necessary.

Goodfood. GREAT idea. I will try that for now, and see what the 'powers that be' can come up with. THANK you.

Do you use Internet Explorer? A few months ago there was some type of change. I had to go into "tools", then to "compatability view settings" and remove Allrecipes from compatability view. Some simply changed to a different browser and were successful in using AR that way.

Elle, does anyone really use IE anymore? Not me. Firefox only here. It is so nice to see you again. I will have to come back here more often. Thank you.

I mostly use IE and sometimes Google Chrome. They are all just different ways to access various internet sites. I don't want to bother changing everything around just becuase one site causes 'issues' with a certain browser.
