Adobe makes an unusual offer to users having problems with the current release.
Late yesterday, Photoshop Product Manager John Nack posted an entry on his blog acknowledging that "many people have been unhappy with printing from Photoshop CS3 (overwhelmingly on Windows), and we've been working on changes that will make things work better."
The problems concern getting prints that resemble what you've achieved on screen. Adobe had added print expert Dave Polaschek to the CS3 team to develop a color managed print preview "and to do quite a bit more behind the scenes." Among the later is a change in the Windows version to document-specific page setup from the prior application-wide setup, which is how the Mac version has always behaved.
Nack reported the company has made some changes and will be issuing an update. But in the meantime, he offered, if you've been having problems and want to test the current code, just email him. "I'll then ask our pre-release coordinator to send you an invitation, after which you can download the latest build and send us your feedback. "
Details are in the blog entry.
