Adobe Standard Settings

Posted on 2007-11-14

I have Adobe Standard 7.0. Every time I create an Adobe document a preview is generated in Adobe. Each month I have a large number of snapshot files to convert to PDF and this preview process slows things down considerably. Is there a setting in Adobe Standard that will turn off this preview?

I am not 100% sure what you mean.. Does it make a difference if you uncheck the 'Enable PrintPreview' box in Preferences|General ?

Enable Print Preview is not checked. I have, let's say, 75 snaphots to convert to PDF. I have to convert each file individually. It takes significantly longer because Adobe generates the PDF and displays it for every file I convert. I'm wondering if there is a universal setting that says "Suppress preview for files converted to PDF".

I see now what you mean, sorry my bad. PDF convert is using the Distiller for preferences, Print PDF is using the print Options

If you open Acrobat Distiller from the Start Menu, go to File|Preferences and de-select 'View PDF when using Distiller'.

Then to be safe, goto Printer & Faxes right click on Adobe PDF, select Properties and then from the Gerneal tab 'Printing Preferences', de-select 'View PDF results'.

This should do it
