Hi everyone,

I just installed MacOS 8.5 and now I can't print from Mathematica 3.0.0 (and only from Mathematica 3.0.0 - all other applications print fine). Whenever I try to print a notebook, background printing gets started, pagination is done fine, then I get the first dialog that says
"Spooling page #1 to disk for background printing", then the second
dialog, reading "Now printing page 1. To cancel, press
Command-period." So far, so good.

But, soon after this second dialog appears, I get a third dialog box
with  the error mesage: "An error has ocurred. (ID = -109)", at which
point my  only choice is to press the only button available, Cancel,
and I'm back to  the notebook, without any printing being performed.

Has anyone had any similar problems? Does anyone know what ID = - 109 represents?

I'm running Mathematica 3.0.0 on a PowerComputing PowerCenter Pro 180
with  MacOS 8.5 and a StyleWriter 1200.

Thank you in advance.
