Question about Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 for PC/Unix/Mac

1 Answer

Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of 11x17 format on a 11x17 paper. What I want is to print multiple PDF files in the 11x17 format on a 11x17 paper. And yes the printer is setup to print to 11x17 format, it's adobe that isn't telling the printer to print it with the 11x17 format. WinXP Adobe Reader 9 Network Printer

    Tried it, it still prints in 8 1/2 x 11 format on a 11x17 paper. It seems like a Adobe problem. And we can't run any other software, it's a company computer. So Adobe is the only solution.

    1) Open one PDF. 2) Print 3) Properties 4)Paper Tab 5)set paper size to Ledge 6) Ok 7) press Print button 8) Press small X to close the pdf file, but not Adobe reader 9) select the rest of the files in Windows Explorer, right click, print. This should maintain the Ledger page size, and print the rest.

Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
1. Printer properties
2. Print preferences
3. Default print setup.
The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

Good luck :)

Tip

Reduce the file size of a PDF file


Sometimes when we scan a document and the output file is PDF the file size is too big which is very difficult to send as an email attachment. This also happens when you convert word documents into PDF format.

This guide assumes that Adobe Acrobat Professional or Standard is already installed on your computer for PDF conversion.

On your current PDF File click on File then select Print

On the Print window select Adobe PDF as the Printer Name then click on the Properties Tab
3e0123e.jpg

On the PDF Document Properties Window under Default Settings drop down, select Smallest File Size.

Click on OK on all open windows. This will start the conversion process. When it's finished this will prompt you to save the file. It is advisable to save the file in a different file name rather than replacing the original copy.

After the conversion you may compare the file size of the original file and the reduced PDF file. The reduced file can now be sent on email attachments easily.

I first scanned all the docs into the picture gallery. My professor needs them all in pdf format. How? I've got an HP Pavilion laptop. My professor's waiting for me to call her tonight when...


PDF format means legal form which is handled in Adobe Acrobat. You said you scanned your docs into the picture gallery, and I am hoping that you left them in the default format that your scanner uses instead of changing them to a picture format (like JPEG, or TIFF) or this may be too complicated to assist via email.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat & Adobe Reader, do a search on the internet and download then install them. They are free. Once the programs are installed, open Adobe Acrobat and click on "file" at the top left side of the screen and try and open one of the documents you saved in the picture gallery in the acrobate program. If they are compatible, all you have to do is rename and save the document in Adobe. To save it, after you have opened it in Adobe - click on file and then "save a copy" or "save as" and choose whatever the documents name is and .pdf at the end (save to a pdf format) and then you are done.

If the file format of the documents are not compatible and will not open and easily save in PDF format using the Acrobat, then I would suggest asking your teacher for an extension.

Good luck!

I can't open sig. files on window 7 keeps saying not supported will not allow me to use the software to open either. no matter that i the print shop as default


Print Shop 20 is not completely compatible with Windows 7. For example, when I try to open a Print Shop 20 project on my Windows 7 computer, by double-clicking on the file which is displaying the Broderbund logo, I receive an error message which says, "There was a problem sending the command to the program." And, even though the Print Shop 20 file will eventually open, it actually opens in PrintMaster.

It is, however, possible to force the file to open in Print Shop 20 by doing this:

1. Open Windows Explorer, then find and right click on a Print Shop 20 *.sig file.

2. When the menu drops down, click on 'Open with...'.

3. When the 'Open with' window opens, make sure that there is a check mark in the box next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'.

4. If Print Shop 20 is displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on Print Shop 20, then click on OK.

If Print Shop 20 is NOT displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on the 'Browse' button.

5. When the second 'Open With' window opens, navigate to this folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\The Print Shop 20\The Print Shop 20

then, click on the tps.exe file.

6. Then, click on 'Open' then click on 'OK'.

This should cause all *.sig files to automatically open in Print Shop 20 when you double-click on them. However, since file associations are always based on the file extension of the project file, it might be necessary to repeat the process above for all Print Shop 20 file extensions.

Hope this helps....

Hi, I cannot print a pdf file or that kind of attachment. Only Word can print. Adobe error shows up and want to shut down the program for protection. I never had the problem before. Just started.


Is it a file that you created in pdf format, or is it one that you have had emailed or attempting to open from another source? Some pdf files have protection put on them by the file originator to avoid the file being changed/printed. Here are some tips to try to get them to print for you.
  1. Open your computer's Internet browser.

  2. 2

    Type www.a-pdf.com/security/a-pdf-rr.exe in the browser's URL box to access the PDF restriction converter "A-PDF Restrictions Remover."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" or "Return" key. Your Internet browser will access the site's PDF converter file. A dialog box will appear on your screen--"Opening a-pdf-rr.exe."

  4. 4

    Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer for running later--use this option if you using a slow connection like dial-up. The program will download and set up on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option.

    If saving the file to your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to save the file to. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system.

    You do not have to access the A-PDF Restrictions Remover website again once the file starts downloading or saving to your computer.

  5. 5

    Double click on the "a-pdf-rr.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option.

  6. 6

    Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning."

  7. 7

    Click "Next." Click on the circle by the wording "I accept the agreement." Click "Next."

  8. 8

    Select the directory where you want to save the "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" file. The default is your "C:\Program Files\A-PDF Restrictions Remover" folder. Click "Next."

  9. 9

    Click "Next," "Install" and then "Finish." A-PDF Restrictions Remover will start automatically.

  10. 10

    Navigate to the directory where the protected PDF file is located.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the PDF file name. Select "Remove Restrict & Save As."

  12. 12

    Select a location to save the converted PDF file to. Click "Save." If you want to change the PDF file's name, enter a new name in the box next to the wording "File name." The protected PDF is now converted to a unprotected one.

  13. 13

    Double-click on the converted file to open it.

  14. 14

    Select "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the unprotected, converted PDF file.

  15. Printing a Protected PDF By Taking a "Screen Shot"
  16. 1

    Open the protected PDF file2

  17. Press the "Alt" and "PrtScrn" keys together. The PrtScrn key is located on the upper right-hand side of your keyboard, if using a desktop computer keyboard. If using a laptop, the PrtScrn key is located above the "F10" function key.


  18. 3

    Open your computer's word processing program by clicking on the program's icon on your system's "Desktop" or from the "All Programs" menu.

  19. 4

    Press "CTRL" and "V" keys together to paste the screenshot into a blank document.

    If using a Mac, click "Edit," "Paste" from the main toolbar at the top of your word processing program.

  20. 5

    Click "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the PDF screenshot. If the protected PDF file contains more than one page, press the "PgDn" key and repeat steps 2 through 5.

Hp officejet pro won't print pdf files


In order to print PDF file format grab CutePDF.
  • Visit cutepdf.com . Click "Free Download." A box will appear asking, "Do you want to run or save this file?" Answer with "Save." The download will begin. Download Ghostscript (see link in Resources). Look for "You Can Get the Free GPL Ghostscript 8.15 Here" sentence and click "Here." This download is required for the CutePDF program. Save the GPL Ghostscript file to your desktop.
  • Double click the "CuteWriter" icon on your desktop once your downloads are complete. Click "Next" on the Setup - CutePDF Writer screen. Click "I Accept the Agreement" on the License Agreement screen. Click "Install." The CutePDF setup will run. Click "No" to the CutePDF Writer Setup box that appears next that asks "Would You Like to Download the Converter?" You have already downloaded the converter. Once the setup is complete, a Readme.htm file will appear in your Internet browser. Read this file or print it.
  • Double click the "Converter" icon on your desktop (it will have a black "G" as its icon). Click "Setup" on the right side of the WinZip Self-Extractor converter.exe box. Another box will appear and then disappear. The setup is complete, and CutePDF is ready for use. CutePDF installs itself as a printer, and this allows any Windows program to create a PDF.
  • Open any Windows application like Microsoft Word or Excel. Open any document you would like to convert to a PDF file.


  • Click File > Print. Select "CutePDF Writer" from the Name List in the printer box. Click "Properties." Choose your "Layout" and decided how you want your page to print. Click "Paper / Quality" and "Color."
  • Click Advanced > Page Size. Click "Print Quality" and change the DPI. The bigger the DPI, the larger the file size of the PDF will be. If you are creating a PDF to be emailed, choose 72 DPI or 144 DPI. If you are printing this PDF, choose 300 or 600 DPI. If sending the file to a commercial printer, choose 600 or 1,200 DPI. For most applications, just adjust the DPI setting and leave the other settings alone.

  • Click OK > OK > OK. A "Save As" box will appear. Enter a filename for your PDF file and select the directory you would like to save the file to. Click "Save." Your PDF is done.

    How to save in acrobat .pdf ?


    PDF (Acrobat) files are a great way to make sure documents are viewed with the correct layout and fonts - even when the recipients don't have the program you used to create the documents. It's also a format that is viewable across multiple platforms. In order to create a PDF file in Windows you need to be using Adobe Acrobat Distiller.
    Open the file you want to make into a PDF.
    Choose File, then Print.
    Use the PDFwriter option when printing from a word-processing application: Choose PDFwriter from the Name pull-down menu in the Print dialog box. Fill in the document information, then click Save.
    Use Acrobat Distiller option when printing from a page layout or design program: Choose Acrobat Distiller from the Name pull-down menu in the Print dialog box. Fill in the document information, then click Save.
