I upgraded (whatever that means) to macOS Catalina.

If you visit https://apple.stackexchange.com using Safari and do a Print... and select Save as PDF, then you can create a pdf file. All is well so far. Now, using Preview, open the pdf file that you just created, and say you want to print pages 2-3 (or the entire document, it does not really matter) as a new pdf file. On my end, this is not working. I get an error message: Print. Error while printing.

Do you know of any resolutions, or should we just wait for the next update of macOS to solve this?

    Have you tried exporting the file as a PDF instead of using the print panel. Under the FILE menu is an option to Export as PDF. – jmh Oct 15 '19 at 14:44

    Same issue here with Catalina. The difference is the export re-exports the whole thing whereas Print as PDF you can generate a sub-set of the original pages, so will be good when they fix this! – Lantrix Oct 23 '19 at 3:31

    Exactly. And of course someone could say now that we have re-exported the whole document, go on the left-hand side, select the pages that we did not want to print, hit delete, and then save the new document. Voila! But of course this is not the real answer to the problem. – MightyMouse Oct 23 '19 at 3:52
