4.1. Printer Paused - Mac

If you're trying to print a document/file from your Mac but nothing appears to happen, even though the printer is on and isn't displaying a jam or error message, it might be the case that the print spooler is paused on your computer.

Go into System Preferences, Printers and Scanners, and look at the printer list displayed. If you see a yellow dot next to the printer you're trying to print to, the printer has been paused:

Double-click the printer to open the printer interface window and click the green button (as shown below) to resume printing.
