image instead of text when printed from Chrome

When I print from –°hrome, I get a picture instead of text (cannot be selected, there is no search)
The text from the browser when dopdf is printed is converted to a picture. Why?

I can't answer your question, but I sure wish someone else would because I've got the same problem with Firefox and it's really annoying.

It seems there must be a reason, and most likely a fix or workaround, so let's hope we get some feedback from the doPDF team.

This is because the Chrome sends the print job to doPDF as an image instead of individual text.
There is an easy fix to this problem. When you choose to print with Chrome, it will show you a print dialog with a preview of your printed web page.

Select the option "Print using system dialog" to avoid printing the web page as an image.

Thanks Claudiu, that's useful but only relates to Chrome.

I've got the same problem, but using Firefox, and there's no "Print using system dialog".

What do you recommend to overcome the problem when printing to doPDF from Firefox?
