Hi Richard. Welcome to justanswer.

A PDF file can contain damaged content such as images or fonts that Acrobat cannot process during printing. Printing a PDF file as an image bypasses that processing by sending the printer a simple image of the document instead.

Print the pdf file as an image and then check if it still takes that much time or not.

Hi Richard, how did things turn out?

Hi Nathan. Sorry it has taken a while for me to respond. Things domestic and a holiday got in the way! I have tried to implement your suggestion, but it is still very slow printing pdf files. I'm not entirely sure that I have found the best way to print as an image file anyway. There doesn't seem to be that option in the Pixma print menu!

If you don't see the Advanced button, click the Down Arrow (to the right of the Printer pop-up menu).
