I have some Help text that is more comfortable to review on paper than screen.

From Help, Select Print, and choose Topic and all SubTopics.
An html help version is created and printing begins.

Choose another sub-topic to print:

"Cannot print until previous print has completed"

This message happens even across multiple Help Windows ( Help for different apps )

Even worse: once Help printing is active, you cannot even view another Help file.

I've never seen an issue like this before. Once the print request is committed to the spooler,
why should Win 8.1 care if I'm trying to spool/print another topic?

Just a quick thought. Have you opened your control GUI for the printer? If not, open it and look to see if the additional printing you want is in a queue. When printing a hard copy of the help files God only knows how many pages that may be.

You said, "Once the print request is committed to the spooler,why should Win 8.1 care if I'm trying to spool/print another topic?" My guess is it does not care you just must wait until the first topic is completed?
