Printing from PS CC worked fine today. I made no changes to preferences. In between working with 2 projects, the first one printed fine, the second gave me this Error Message.

There was an error opening your printer. Printing functions will not be available until you have selected a printer and reopened any documents.

Now I've checked for updates for my printer, reset my printer, reset PS CC preferences, picked my printer as Default and Last Used, and rebooted. I've followed all the recommended fixes for this issue I could find here and on the internet. I can print fine from any other program. Alas, the error message keeps popping up and I can't print.

PS CC is up to date
Running OS 10.10.2
HP Printer updated

That error message means that the printer driver had a serious error, and that the OS couldn't switch to another printer for some reason (like if that is the only one you have installed).

We've heard about some sporadic problems with printer drivers in MacOS 10.10, but we haven't been able to reproduce the errors ourselves.

Thanks for the quick response Chris, I guess I'll keep watching for a solution or fix? Meanwhile I won't be able to print from my printer? I can try another printer in my office, and if I get the same error message I will send it on.

The normal printer troubleshooting steps are: update driver, reset prefs, uninstall and reinstall driver - which it sounds like you have already done. So I can't think of anything else to try right now.
I know some printer makers have had to update their drivers after MacOS 10.10 shipped, but I don't recall seeing any updates from HP.

Correct Chris, the last HP update was 10/22/14. I'll send them a note and see if they respond. Thanks again.
