I am trying to control Adobe Pro (create OLE object of AcroExch) during the printing phase with a number of different optiosn for a print shop. So far so good with a couple of exceptions:
a) If Adobe is up when we go to set the printer, I cannot, the print job comes out on the last printer used.
b) In most cases I am printing the same number of pages as before, i.e. splitting a 4000 page job into x-number of pages in order to staple (automatically does this at EOJ) - but the "sub-jobs" are not coming out in the spool in order for some reason.
Any ideas on these two?
I am controlling the printer through object calls for AchroExch and have another question:
The customer wants to save and change certain settings, i.e. staple versus fold versus ... through an external application. These types of items are not usually in the printer DevMode, though occasionally some items are. Again this is for a large print shop doing thousands of pages at a time, so we need to control it up front for sub-jobs under that main job.
Is there a way to pass an extended DevMode through Acrobat object calls to reset/set different print options for a specific run?
Updating Bates Numbers in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended
Does anyone know how you update the bates numbers to move their position on a single page in a document set in Adobe 9 like you used to be able to in Adobe 8 Professional. In 8 you used to be able to update header / footer and move the bates number on the individual page. Any help would be much appreciated!!
Anyone had experience adding a transparent layer to a PDF? 3
I'm thinking to protect most our PDFs due to copyright issue. We're currently using Password Protection but you know there're lots of password crackers free on net. For some important files we convert them to Flash but it's pretty time-consuming. I know we are able to add layer to PDFs so I don't think my idea isn't too crazy to prevent content to be copied. Any thoughts or experiences?

A question from Don:
Is there any why to print information in an Acrobat form filed that doesn't show when the document is opened? The field on screen shows a scroll bar and the information can be scrolled and read, but I cannot find a way to print the information as part of the document or as a separate printing of the field information.
If this is the case, it would seem to be a terrible shortcoming for Acrobat. The printer gives me a little plus sign at the lower right of the field, indication that there is more text.
It isn't a security problem, I have access to the doc, but I'd like to design it so others using it could print the entire field contents.

I know one needs to go to Preferences, click Internet, then select Display PDF in browser. But it does not work for lots of our users (in FF, IE or Safari). I wonder if there's any other factor that plays a role in this mystery. Any best practice you wanna share?
Well, one of the things in our daily operation is to convert PowerPoint to PDF. There always are all kinds of embedded charts in most of .ppt(x) files we get from instructors. As most people like to use white axis and fonts (within embedded object) on dark background, it causes problem when they're converted to black/white PDF - the white axis and fonts do not show up. So we have to edit PowerPoint to change embedded stuff to some other colors in order to make it work. Apparently it's very tidious if there're many charts in one document.
what are your best practices?
In order to improve our manual file (.doc;.xls;.ppt;.jpg) conversion process done in centralized service desk, it's suggested to use auto conversion tool at client side or web-based tool before sending originals to the service desk.
I've never seen such application. So I'm just imagining here:
People go to a web site and click Browse button to upload a file. Pick some options, such as Security, Page Setup, Color or B/W, Slides per page (for .ppt) etc. Then click Submit. Service Desk should then be able to get a notification to download the processed file(s).
Anybody has seen such a thing? Any recommendations? Either free or commercial products?

Can anyone explain to me how to print a batch of files to pdf with by-pass of the 'save as' dialog? I want this to function autonymously, yet, must click cancel or esc for each of a 100 files. I have set the Adobe preference in Word, the application that created the documents I want to print to pdfs, to print to a specified directory rather than ask where to save the files.
Within Adobe Pro 9, I have set up the batch processing to look in a specific directory for Word docs, and print them as Adobe pdf to another directory. However, I cannot avoid the attached dialog, and this is pretty much useless if I can't.
