FH10 crashes on every print I make - Macromedia Freehand

My test printer is a brandnew Canon Pixma ink-printer. Each time I want to print a FH-doent there, Freehand 10 crashes each and every time after transferring the data to the printer. The printouts are fine, but I can?t print more than one doent without fh10 crashing? Is the Canon-printer-driver faulty? My computer is a otherwise perfectly running new G5 Mac with OSX10.3. (oddly that Canon-printer is worse than the old Canon I had before anyway!)...

    "Worse in what way? I love my Pixma iP3000..."

    For one its that solid colour blocks have stripes that my old Canon S500
    didn?t show. It?s also that the Pixma doesn?t show the colours as bright as the
    old printer did. I thought by staying with Canon it wouldn?t be that extreme as
    when changing the brand, but printouts look very different unfortunately, and
    much darker as well. And they seem not as sharp as on the S500.
    When I bought the old S500 in 2001 I was enthusiastic. Canon disappointed me
    this time.

    Have you done head cleaning and alignments? That should get rid of any
    stripes you're seeing. As far as bright colors are concerned, maybe the ink
    formulas in the Pixma are different than the S500 and require different
    paper stocks to look their best. I'd do some experimenting.

    Thanks,
    but cleaning isn?t the issue. The stripe phenomenon (it more like on a badly
    painted car, no "graphic" stripes) has been there from the beginning. The Pixma
    prints in blocks and decides for a short pause each time it has printed a part,
    so that when proceeding after 2, 3 or even 10 seconds the next "block" printed
    gives the impression of a bad colour-drying process. Thats best how I can
    describe these "stripes".

    H-m-m-m... Mine doesn't do the pausing thing that I've noticed. Are you
    printing huge files? Do you have a USB2 connection? I would definitely
    contact Canon and see what they have to say about what you're experiencing.
