    I can't print Picklists / Invoices / Credit notes.

    User machines Windows/IE/Adobe settings can affect printing reports from AD Portal. If you have generated the PDF and can view it on screen, printing problems are most likely related to your own IT system set up, not the AD Portal. Please check with your IT support.
