I have a user who is using a Windows XP machine with IE8 and Adobe Reader XI. When a document gets generated from a website, it produces a document which comes up in IE8 with the adobe reader plug in. This doc must be printed. Although the browser settings are set to print the time and date as footers, it does not print in the PDF. Is there a way to print the timestamp in the PDF?

Works fine with Firefox. If your user is willing (and your IT folks allow it) move the user from IE8 to Firefox. If that can't happen, then your user would have to download the file first and then print it. But Adobe Reader XI doesn't support headers/footers. In the Adobe product family, you would need Acrobat Pro or Standard. If you want to do it with free software, I recommend IrfanView, excellent imaging software that I've been using for many years:

Click the Download link on the left to download IrfanView and click the PlugIns link on the left to download the PlugIns, which are needed to give you PDF capability. Install IrfanView first, then install the PlugIns.

The IrfanView print dialog supports headers/footers, as shown in this cropped screenshot:

Nope. Chrome's print dialog supports headers-footers when printing a web page, but not when printing a PDF. Regards, Joe
