How can I change the default page size for the Adobe PDF Printer?

Hello All,
I have cases where I need to switch the default paper size from 8.5x11 to 11x17 via api for the Adobe PDF Printer and have not been able to find how this can be accomplished.
I am using C# .Net and would appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance,
Bob

There is no Acrobat API for this, but so far as I know there doesn't need to be. The user can go change this from the Printers Control panel as needed. The Adobe PDF printer has some differences from regular printer drivers, but this isn't one of them.

  • Can I change the default page size for SYSBUILD?

    When I start SYSBUILD it always has a default page size of Letter set, is there any way to change this as most of the blocks I wish to print are to be printed on A3 paper?
    Many thanks
    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    Unfortunately there is no option to change the default print settings for SystemBuild. You must manually select the A3 paper size under File>>Page Setup.
    Thanks for the suggestion though, I will pass that on to R&D as a product suggestion for a future release.

  • How can I change my credit card number for my Adobe ID?

    Hello,
    I'd like to change my credit card number, but Adobe site do not allow this.
    Support chat redirected me to a chinese adobe page (I'm from Hungary, can't read Chinese..), then told me to call local reseller support instead.
    Local reseller support told us that they can't support creative cloud members, they are being dealt with centrally by Adobe.
    Back to chat, describing again what I need to a new agent..
    Got the same chinese page from him as well first, then got the same "call local reseller" advice again.
    After telling the agent that does not work, he gave me a phone number to call: 852 2916 2125, which never answers. And the agent dropped off..
    I haven't been so depressed over a customer support for years.
    Can somebody please help me out on how to change my credit card number for my Adobe ID?
    Thanks for any useful help in advance.

    Ok, found a way:  "under the billing section of your subscription within the My Adobe section of Adobe.com after you login with your Adobe ID "
    But after updating my info with my new (working) credit card (matercard) it says:
    There was a problem in the store. If you wish to complete your purchase immediately, please call 800 0280148.
    And this number than answers 'it cannot be accessed'
    I'd need this done immediately, so please anyone - any ideas ?!
    Thanks.

  • How do I set the default page size for printing on a 8450.

    A few days ago I printed some envelopes and now when I print from some programs, the print page size has remained the envelope size.  I want to print from any program on letter size paper without changing the settings every time.
    Thanks
    This question was solved.

    This document can help you set the print settings for any type of printing. Not just for photos as the title suggests. You should not have to keep setting it every time.

  • Can Reader pick up the Default Page Size of a printer that is not the Windows Default Printer?

    We have a web based application that generates PDF documents via Crystal Reports.
    We are using Adobe Reader 8
    The PDF pages are displayed within an Internet Explorer window where the the users then print the document.
    The application is designed so the user only gets one chance to print the document (ie they cant come back and change printer settings if they happen to print the document out incorrectly)
    The document needs to be printed on A3 paper, full duplex.
    We have a printer set-up decidated to the printing of the documents generated by this application.  The default page size of this printer is set of A3.
    If we set this dedicated printer as the Windows Default Printer we have no problems at all.  The default page size (A3) is picked up and the document is printed correctly.
    If any other printer is set as the Windows Default Printer (eg one that has a default page size of A4), the users must obviously select the correct printer from the Print Dialogue Box -however when the user selects the dedicated A3 printer, the page size remains as A4 (page size of the Windows Default Printer).  This means the user must remember to change the paper size to A3 each time.
    Out users find IT a struggle at the best of times - anything that makes the process simpler is very welcomed!
    Is there a way to ensure the default page size of the printer is respected when that printer is not the Windows Default Printer?
    Thanks!

    No.

  • How to set the default maximum size for java's heap?

    Hi!
    Im trying to set the default max size for the java heap - but not from the command line.
    I would like to set it higher as default on my computer.. how can I do that?
    thanks!

    >
    ...You may increase the memory heap only when you're launching a new JVM.>Much like IWantToBeBig does.
    OTOH, it this is an app. with a GUI, it is easier to launch it using webstart, and request extra memory in the JNLP descriptor (the webstart launch file).

  • Default page size for printing

    Is there a way to configure (i.e., specify non-programatically) the default page size to use when printing in Java? We have several JREs installed on a single Solaris machine. It seems that all but the one that came installed with the OS defaults to a an ISO-A4 page size.
    I wrote a test program (see end of post) and compiled using a 1.2.2 JDK. Here are some results:
    $ /usr/java/bin/java -cp . PrintPageFormat
    Java version: 1.2.2
    Page size: 612.0 x 792.0 pts
    $ /opt/java-packages/jre-1.4.0_04-solaris-i586/bin/java -cp . PrintPageFormat
    Java version: 1.4.0_04
    Page size: 595.0 x 842.0 pts
    $ /opt/java-packages/jre-1.4.2_08-solaris-i586/bin/java -cp . PrintPageFormat
    Java version: 1.4.2_08
    Page size: 595.0 x 842.0 pts
    $ /opt/jre-1.5.0_04-solaris-i586/bin/java -cp . PrintPageFormat
    Java version: 1.5.0_04
    Page size: 595.2755813598633 x 841.8897399902344 pts
    I've searched the Internet, but cannot find how to go about setting the default page size for a JRE. I've opened a ticket with Sun, and was told you can't do this other than programatically. It seems unreasonable that I would have to recompile my existing applications just to get them to work correctly under newer JREs. Is Sun's response to my ticket correct???
    Thanks in advance!

    ============================================================
    import java.awt.print.*;
      public class PrintPageFormat
          public static void main(String[] args)
              PrinterJob pj = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
              PageFormat pf = pj.defaultPage();
              double w = pf.getWidth();
              double h = pf.getHeight();
              String version = System.getProperty("java.version");
              System.out.println("    Java version: " + version);
              System.out.println("    Page size: " + w + " x " + h + " pts");
      }

    This problem was fixed by setting the locale variable LC_CTYPE to "C" or "en_US". The JREs 1.4.0 and above deployed on our Linux and Solaris environments all have the system property 'java.awt.printerjob' set to 'sun.print.PSPrinterJob'. This is a subclass of sun.print.RasterPrinterJob which in turn is a subclass of java.awt.print.PrinterJob. So, PSPrinterJob is the actual class of the PrinterJob returned by PrinterJob.getPrinterJob(). Looking at the code of RasterPrinterJob:
            /* Default to A4 paper outside North America.
            String defaultCountry = Locale.getDefault().getCountry();
            if (!Locale.getDefault().equals(Locale.ENGLISH) && // ie "C"
                defaultCountry != null &&
                !defaultCountry.equals(Locale.US.getCountry()) &&
                !defaultCountry.equals(Locale.CANADA.getCountry())) {
                double mmPerInch = 25.4;
                w = Math.rint((210.0*ptsPerInch)/mmPerInch);
                h = Math.rint((297.0*ptsPerInch)/mmPerInch);
                newPaper.setSize(w, h);
                newPaper.setImageableArea(ptsPerInch, ptsPerInch,
                                          w - 2.0*ptsPerInch,
                                          h - 2.0*ptsPerInch);
            }This should have been fairly obvious. Java's locale settings depend on the platform's locale settings (i.e., LC_ variables in this case), and then the default page size is determined (or actually altered) based on that.
    I'm kicking myself for not figuring this out much sooner. I would hope Sun is, too! (not me, themselves)

  • PIXMA MG8220 default page size for printing is set incorrectly to 6x4, need Letter

    I have a PIXMA MG8220, and the default page size for printing is set incorrectly to 6x4, I need it to be Letter paper size. I'm wasting a lot of paper, and cannot figure how to reset the defaults on the printer vs. individual laptops using the printer?Simon

    Hi simonp, To set the paper size to be printed on, please follow these steps: 1.  Open an application such as TextEdit. 2.  Go up to File and select Print, or press the CMD+P keys on your keyboard. 3.  Locate the PAPER SIZE field, then select the LETTER paper size. 4.  Look for the drop-down menu labeled PRESETS, then expand this menu and choose SAVE AS.
    5.  Type in a name of your choice for this default setting, then click OK.
    You will now be able to select the above created preset from any application you print from, with the default paper size being Letter.  Hope this helps!

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    * [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

    Hi janekieschninck,
    If the printer is currently set to perform duplex (2-sided) printing, you can turn off the setting by deselecting the option in the printer driver. Please follow the instructions at the link below associated with your operating system to find where the duplex feature is located for your operating system:
    Duplex printing - Mac
    Duplex printing - Windows
    Hope this helps!

  • How do I change the default paper size for printing?

    I am running Firefox 3.6.3. Recently, the default paper size for printing unexpectedly changed to a user-defined size of 3.00" x 4.57". It used to be letter size (8.5 x 11). The default paper size is 8.5 x 11 for everything else. I have tried changing the size in the preferences dialog box and then clicking "default", but after I close Firefox or if Firefox opens a new window, the default size switches back to 3.00" x 4.57". Does anyone know how to fix this?
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == About 2 weeks ago

    In "mine" dutch firefox 3.6.12 there is no option to change paper-size see
    "about:config" Promise to be careful (and be!) Enter "print.postscript.paper_size" gives a empty screen
    "paper_size" gives a few results
    What about the numbers 4259872, 4784247 and what is the meaning of
    paper_size, paper_size_type , paper_size_unit
