Using PDF Printer and MS SharePoint

We love the new functionality with Acrobat and Sharepoint, however, we noticed there is a problem when using the Adobe PDF Printer to save to a Sharepoint Library.
None of the Sharepoint functionality works when you save to a Sharepoint library from the PDF Printer!!!
We have users that (in an effort to cut down on paper printing costs) screen-print a report from an external application using the Adobe PDF Printer. We would like for them to be able to immediately drop these into a Sharepoint library which has required metadata fields in it. The problem is that, while this functionality works when you already have a PDF open and try to save to this library, the user is never prompted to fill out the required metadata whenever they use the PDF printer.
Steps:
1.     User hits the print button and selects the Adobe PDF Printer
2.     User gets a Save-As dialog box where they select the sharepoint location (via a mapped drive)
3.     The screen-print then pulls up in Acrobat
***The problem is, the document somehow successfully saves to the library but stays checked out. The user can just close the document and is never prompted for the metadata.

Dear SAP_Wiz
Thanks
It is a sapscript out put.
Converting output to spool and then to PDF is definetly a way.
However, seens SAP has already provided a PDF printer and which asked for email as parameter, It could be easy.
Is email ID as parameter is really not there is PRINT PARAMETER. ????

  • Printing to Adobe PDF printer and getting the same document, possible??

    Hello:
    I need to split a page A4 into 2 pages, it's possible using print, then tile large pages, the problem is that my original document is black and white, but the generated one has a shades of gray visible when zooming to 800% (and the size is much bigger), so my question is:
    is it possible to print a document to Adobe PDF printer and getting exactly the same document?? same size, same black and white
    I'm using acrobat6

    I suspected as much.  I was hopeful it was something like a setting that needed to be changed or a reg hack that needed a bit changed from 0 to 1 to make the printing work as expected.  I only installed the local printer to see if the RDP session
    tunnel was in fact causing the print size to balloon so I will continue to instruct users to use that instead of the local redirected printer.  I am disappointed but not surprised.
    Edit:
    Additionally I have tested the functionality of setting the GPO settings for Easy Print to use the redirected printer's drivers instead of the ones used by easy print, by setting “Computer
    Configuration -> Administrative templates -Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host -> Printer Redirection”.
    to “Disabled” but
    with no luck.  In fact the printer received the proper Adobe PDF driver, but the job went out into print spool hell and was lost to the ether.  I have concluded that this approach will not bear any fruit.

  • Error using PDF printing

    Hello.
    I am having a problem using PDF printing.
    When choosing PDF as output format in the Print Attributes tab, upon clicking on the print link in my app, Adobe reader comes up, but then I get a pop-up stating that the file could not be opened "... because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged...".
    If I choose HTML as output format in the Print Attributes tab, then I get a long web server error stack that looks like this (see below)
    Any idea what might be wrong?
    thanks

    Hi Boris,
    I have the same issue. I am using FOP. have two reports to print in PDF format. one is output fine, another is having the problem that you mentioned. I found it's related to the column width(%) setting and Orientation setting. but I don't know how to set the column width correctly. I tested with different values for the one that works fine. unfortunately can't sort out another.

  • Office PDF Print and office PDF creator(adobe plugin) create different line thickness result

    Hi together,
    Office PDF Print and office abobe PDF creator(adobe plugin) create different result. It seems that Adobe PDf creater improves line thickness to 1pt instead of 0,3pt. Is there a setting to change to original 0,3 because this 0,3 are standard line thickness for our documents. with adobe V9 the line was 0,3pt. (we need thin, mid and thick lines)
    After 2 day's google searching this is the last change for hope :-)

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks a lot for the fast reply, i have tested it with 300dpi but I didn't get a different result. The bad thing is that not all lines getting thicker. if there is no arrow or ball at the end of the line the line thickness will not change (see Pic). I think this is a Acrobat error, i don't think that this will improve the pdf quality if the progam changes only some lanes and not all to 1pt.
    I Think we must downgrade to version 9.

    If I understand you correctly your PDF viewer is not giving you the options you posted above. Click on View and ensure that both Read Mode and Full Screen Mode are unchecked. This should get your options back if you are experiencing that I am thinking you are. If this does not work if you could elaborate a bit on your issue I will try to assist.

  • File printed to pdf printer and physical printer

    hallo,
    as the title says, my application prints files and they are printed to a pdf file and sent by an email or printed by a physically printer letter and sent as letter to the customer
    my application is a nightly batchjob in vb6 which has worked really well for some months but now the customer said, that some of the files have been printed to a pdf and sent by an email and also printed by a physicaly printer so i checked the logfiles and realized that there is only one printing mentiond of the files which have been printed twice (pdf and physically) so now i'm wondering
    the process looks like this:
    i read the data from the database, and if the customer has an email address i change the default printer to the adobe pdf printer, then i set value in the registry which is a parameter for the pdf printer, what the name of the file shall be after this i reset the default printer to the physically one
    in the logfile aren't any exceptions so the set of the default printer had to work, and also the set of the parameter for the pdf printer, and the files also had been sent by mail so i'm wondering if it's possible that windows or adobe has also sent the file to the physically printer, the OS is windows 2003 server
    hope you can help me
    if anything is fuzzy im ready to provide more informations
    thanks a lot
    greetings peter

  • Pdf print and view using swing

    hello
    i am created one pdf file from original pdf file with data using itext library,but now my problem is how can view this file and print this pdf file using swing printing api

    but how to print?
    Note: Just because the PDF DocFlavor exists doesn't mean you can use it to print a PDF file. When you lookup the PrintService for the PDF flavor,it will report unsupported flavor. That means there is no print service for the flavor. Sun doesn't provide one for PDF files. To the best of my knowledge,nobody else makes one available either. Until such a time as someone does,you can't print PDF files using the new Print Service API.
    ??? is there another way to print a pdf-file directly from filesystem without using the command line like:
    C:\..\Acrobat 5.0\Reader>acrord32.exe/t test.pdf
    thanks for replys

  • Using PDF Printer TO Print Multiple Word Docs At Once.

    I Have Just upgraded from acrobat to acrobat 3d. In Acrobat 5 i was able to select a batch of word document (150+ usually) and use the send to command to send them to the acrobat distiller and each document would open one at a time print and then close. I have now been upgraded to Acroabat 3D and if i use the same Send to Command to send a batch of word docs to the pdf printer it tries to open all the selected files at once and i get an error message "the command cannot be performened because a dialog box is open..." this is because the 1st document is open and printing so the secound document that opened at the same time cannot operate the print command. Can Anyone help?

    Thanks for the suggestion but...
    1. I can't get these scripts to run in 10.4.8
    What if you save the script as a stand alone app? Does that make a difference?
    2. I haven't spent much timr trying since it looks
    like thy only convert "JPEG", "GIFf", "PICT", "TIFF",
    "PDF" & "TEXT". Am I wrong?
    That's what it looks like from the "extension-list" - what type of files are you trying to convert?

  • Using PDF Printer in XP Mode within Windows 7 64-bit

    My laptop has Windows 7 64-bit on it, and Adobe Acrobat 8 installed on it and working great (moved the activation from my old XP machine).  I have one application that I have to run in XP Mode.  How can I install the print driver in both places without buying another license?  They are running on the same machine.
    I tried to connecting to the shared PDF Printer using a network printer, but Adobe Acrobat only installs the 64-bit driver, and the XP Mode needs the x86 driver installed.  Is there a way to install the x86 version of the PDF Printer driver in Windows 7?
    Has anyone worked through this?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    How is Acrobat 8 not fully Windows 7 compatible?  I see discussions on this Adobe Community saying how Acrobat 8 does work on Windows 7 and with 64-bit.  It appears that if Acrobat 8 is updated to the latest version, then this should fix AA8-Win7 issues.  And I am at the latest AA8 version, 8.3.1. 
    And how are Acrobat 8 and Reader XI are not compatible?  I have always had Acrobat and Reader installed on the same PC, without ever having any issues.  And Adobe allows the installation of one after the other.  So apparently Adobe allows them both to exist together.  If they are incompatible, then why would Adobe allow them to exist together? 
    Anyway, I did uninstall the FileOpen Plug-in and the Reader XI, then reinstalled the FileOpen Plug-in.  So now Reader is not installed and only Acrobat 8 is installed.  I then tried to load the PDF file, but I still get the Acrobat 8 error described above.

    I have practically the same question.

    I found that I can go to the  printer properties and it has an option to add the  X86 driver but asks for the .inf file.
    I believe this version of Acrobat came as part of a bundle, but not positive. Can't find a disk anywhere and also looked for a driver on my PC. No luck.
    I know this is a fully licensed product. So anyone know where I can find the driver?

  • PDF Printing and preserving Control Breaks

    I'm testing PDF printing with apache FOP. it works, but I've searched on here and am not finding a solution to preserve control breaks. Is there an easy way to set this up? I'm trying to replace reports with Apex, and one of my developer. we wrote these custom reports, that work very nicely, but are tedious... user has ability to control break, etc. I can achieve all this from interactive reports, but printing is the problem.
    My thought if I can do this, is to generate the report on a printer friendly page, and just print from there.
    any other suggestions?
    Thanks,

    I am having trouble, too, getting PDF reporting to users in a way that they're satisfied with.
    1. Example of vanilla PDF without BI publisher.
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B5IT1IH9Rb7NNzM2MjgyODQtOTEzMC00NDJiLTg4MzgtOTExYmQ2OTJlODA1&hl=en&authkey=CNKg9bkD
    I have not found a way to change the margins or other column settings. So the reports will have minimal utility for our users, who are auditors and who like to save their analyses.
    I welcom help on how to use and override the Print Attributes > Page Attributes settings for PDF? Paper Size , Orientation, and width/height seem to work, but have no impact on the actual body printing. E.g. setting tabloid landscape 17x11 " works, but the report is still the same size as with letter landscape 11x8.5 setting. There's no way to set the margin.
    2. Example of my best work around. Here, the user prints from browser - Google Chrome - to PDF. I use free Windows PDF utility Bullzip PDF Printer. The same look and feel goes to a physical paper printer.
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B5IT1IH9Rb7NMDBhM2NiOTEtZmUwOC00NDY2LWFmOGYtYjJiMTVkZjgyZmQy&hl=en&authkey=CPm818sC
    Chrome however does not now have the option to print the background colors, so you can't get your tabs and other graphic elements to look identical to on-screen pages. You have to adjust the row count on the Apex page so all rows are displayed - if you do, the browser will print multiple pages until all rows have been put into the pdf. Another advantage for the users is that they can choose to display all the filter and grouping selections on screen and capture them in the PDF output, similar to what we do in one of our Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports applications.
    Other browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox) seem not to be able to print all the rows.

  • I want to create a document in Illustrator that i can use for Print and Web - using 2 different colourspaces.

    Is it possible to do this?  I need to create a document so that I can export as a high quality CMYK for print and export the same file as RGB jpeg / pdf for web and email use.  Do I have to create the document with 2 different colourspaces, or can I change / convert the colourspace after I have created and finished the document?  or is there some simple way to select an RGB / CMYK option when saving/exporting?
    look forward to your reply!
    Tom

    Tom,
    In addition to what Monika said, the document can be either CMYK or RGB Colr Mode, but not both.
    And you are right in starting with the CMYK because that will ensure (to the degree possible) that the CMYK and RGB versions match in colour (gamut, the CMYK gamut being the more linited and almost entirely included in the RGB gamut); this will prevent more vivid RGB colours which will make the CMYK colours seem duller.
