How to allow user to change Adobe PDF printer page size in Printer Preferences
Posted on 2008-11-07
We have a few users who routinely create large-scale PDF files of varying sizes using Adobe Acrobat Pro 8. However, when they go into the Adobe PDF Printing Preferences, they are unable to create/add a custom Adobe PDF Page Size. When I am logged in as the Administrator, I can make all of the changes I want, but my users can 't (they are all Power Users on their machines). I have tried explicitly allowing them to Manage Printer, but to no avail.
I am looking for a solution that will give them the ability to change/add these page sizes without giving them Administrator privileges to their machines or making them Print Operators in the domain. They should only be able to do this on their machine alone. I have considered creating a custom template to allow them the appropriate permissions, but I do not think that is the right solution (and I have no idea where to begin combing through the registry). There is the possibility that this is also a file permission problem with the Adobe PDF Converter print drive itself, but I do not know where that is stored either.
