Hi Rahul, PDF files do not print properly on Dot Matrix printer. You have to save the file as "RTF" format in order to print using Dot matrix printer. Click this Link (http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/27110248/Printing-pdf-in-dot-matrix-printer.html" target="asdasd) to see the comments.

Thanks, Sunil.
