Print cache mistakenly believes prior job waiting to print?

  • Hello, have found a workaround, may not be comprehensive though, and wondered if there was a direct way to clear the Opera print cache when it thinks, but there is not, another job waiting to print ahead of the current request?

    What I do is to save the Internet page in Bookmarks, to close out all of the other pages open in Opera, to go out to the Printers/Faxes window in the control panel to print a test page to verify the printer is working, then I go back into Opera, open the recently bookmarked page I could not print, and if it opens print it successfully.

    Note: first tried to reopen the page I could not print by going to the "closed tabs" button on the toolbar, but for some reason if I have found if I cannot print a page and close it, it does NOT appear under the "closed tabs" button -

    Is there a workaround, perhaps a way to increase the Opera print cache - the opera cache in Internal Opera pages, as well as the opera:config editing of the preferences, "print" has no setting for queuing print job in terms of number of jobs,number of pages, so it should be passed through to the windows print cache, no?

    Thanks, deralter

  • Are you sure there isn't another printing job that is stuck in spooler queue? There is a free tool called Stalled Printer Repair. It will let you know if there is a stalled printing job in the spooler queue. If there is it will allow you to clear out the spooler. Program can be download here:
