ADO-1008 • Adobe Illustrator printing to AccuRIP Error Message PPD file doesn't match


When I print from Adobe Illustrator I get a message saying "The PPD file for the current printer does not match the PPD file used by the print dialog..."

This means you have selected the wrong PPD file for the AccuRIP driver. This is an automatic process when you choose the AccuRIP to Epson print driver, a change has been made to the PPD selection.


1. The next time you open a new file in Illustrator and choose AccuRIP the PPD file will be loaded properly for all Adobe version CS and higher.

2. Open the Print window choose "default" for the Print Preset, now select the AccuRIP print driver and the proper PPD will automatically load.

3. If trouble continues, copy and paste your art file to a NEW file and print. Illustrator handles each new file as a separate situation, not transferring print options.
