IMPORTANT: MESA cannot provide support for printing problems when the computer does not meet the minimum specifications for small files, or the recommended specifications for printing problems with large files.

Any type of graphic processing requires significant computer resources. Better computer specs, especially RAM and graphics memory, will always deliver better results. Insufficient resources can cause slow printing, program errors, printing errors, or computer lock-ups/crashes.

If you are having problems printing, and your computer meets the specifications, check to see if there are any programs running which may be using up system resources such as CPU and RAM.
