I'm currently trying to print out PDF files in a folder on my c drive,I thought it'd be smart to put all files in a printing queue, and then print them all in one go. Is this in any way possible with VBA?
I am trying to avoid looping through the folder.I cam manually copy and paste them in the print queue but I am trying to avoid doing that also.
Good Morning Experts,

I just rolled out a shiny new Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Session Host\Terminal Server and everything is working fine and all is right with the world.

Then the employees that handle PDFs all day started screaming.  Apparently, Adobe Acrobat DC as the preview handler for PDFs is a slow nightmare.  I have tested it and they are right.  It is horribly slow and near useless in the Windows Explorer preview window.  All the Google fu I could muster did not yield any solutions.

I have heard that the Foxit Reader is a good replacement for Adobe Reader in these situations.  I have tested it and it is very fast at rendering PDFs.

My question:

Can I set the default application for PDFs to Adobe Reader and the preview handler for Windows Explorer to Foxit?  If so, how?



I have a very big report in PDF format which I need to analyse  I want to printout pages that contain certain strings.

Is that possible?

see javascript code below (written in adobe acrobat pro javascript editor)
this code attached to button in pdf form . when click on the button it attached the pdf to new mail in outlook and fill the subject and the body of the email.
i need to have the body of the email BOLD  , how can i achieve this?


// This is the form return email. It's hardcoded

// so that the form is always returned to the same address.

// Change address on your form to match the code below

var cToAddr = ""

// First, get the client CC email address

var cCCAddr = this.getField("ClientEmail").value;

// Now get the beneficiary email only if it is filled out

var cBenAddr = this.getField("BennyEmail").value;

if(cBenAddr != "")

cCCAddr += ";" + cBenAddr;

// Set the subject and body text for the email message

var cSubLine ="return protocol for fix - " + " company name: " + this.getField("company name").value  + " , " + " branch number: " + this.getField("branch name").value + " , " +  " account number: " + " " + this.getField("account number").value

var cBody = "Hi,\n\n Please see hed protocol"


// Send the entire PDF as a file attachment on an email

this.mailDoc({bUI: true, cTo: cToAddr, cCc: cCCAddr, cSubject: cSubLine, cMsg: cBody});

We are experiencing IE 11 Crashing or what it says is Stopped when a few of our users that use State Tax Forms websites the get down to the PDF's and when they click on the PDF they need to view and it crashes IE11 or like I said it stops working.

Does anyone have any fixes or has anyone seen this happening?
I have an Access application that can export fields to a PDF file.  However, for this work it needs the full version of Adobe installed.  Not just the reader.  So I was wondering if there was a way to check programmatically to see if Adobe Acrobat was loaded and not just the reader.

Thanks John
We use iTextSharp to create PDFs throughout our site.  We have a Comments field that can grow.
It doesn't look like iTextSharp supports dynamic attributes - or at least the way we are using it with a pre-defined template.

sample of the code for the comments section:

  stamper.AcroFields.SetField("Comments", sb.ToString());
  stamper.AcroFields.SetFieldProperty("Comments", "textsize", 6f, null);
I need a PDF editor about once a month to change data on a report. I was paying Adobe $15 a month for this is there a free product or one time cost product that would do this. Nuance looked promising and cheaper but reviews are bad. Tracker might work. I can use Foxit phantom if it works. Can I get your advice.

Client with Adobe Acrobat Pro XI  Version 11.0.23  Workstation is Win 8.1 Pro 64bit

Sometimes it opens fine and then sometimes (Most of the time) it takes approx 20-30 Seconds to open a Document

What causes this and how can I repair?

Looking for a solution that will allow a team to simultaneously edit PDF's Similar to the way Onedrive will allow users to work on the same word document and see the changes other users are making relatively instantly. Basically don't want 2 people to be over writing each other or have to piece meal it and put the document together at the end.
I have purchased adobe pro acrobat 2 years ago and now I have a new laptop.  How do you transfer the registration or activation code to the new computer?
Hi all,

I have problem to display my PDF file in an existing popup window using spring framework. The workflow is when I click a button from the main page, it popups a new window (child) and showing progress status. After the file finished generating, I set the view in controller and return to jsp. However, the PDF file displays (using DefaultResourceLoader and response.flushBuffer) in the main page instead of the popup window. I want to show in popup. Anything wrong? How can I specify which window the PDF should be displayed?

Please help. Thanks.
I have a pdf with linking (hyperlink) in it, for the same document.
If we rename the document then why it lost its linking?

Please do the needful?
Hi All,

So I edited a PDF for my HR dept. After all said an done. When you are in a fillable field, she is saying she can't tab down or hit enter to go to next line. I guess some fields do both and some do one or the other, and some don't do either. Does anyone no a fix for this, that i'm not seeing ?
Can anyone help me solve below problem:

I have over 2000 png images saved in different files on my computer. I want to write a VBScript function that does something like go to a particular folder and iteratively copy-paste all the png files in that folder to a PDF file or word document .

1. The header before pasting the png files in the word document should be same as the folder name.
2.  The .png files should be inserted in order of when they got created. That is the first created .png file will be first inserted and the last will be last inserted in the word or PDF file.
3. Upon successful copy of all the .png files in this folder,  the folder should be deleted.

Any assistance if this is possible will be appreciated

Develop a strong foundation and understanding of web design by learning HTML, CSS, and additional tools to help you develop your own website.

I need a program or utility (free preferrably, paid if it's easy to setup and use) that will print PDFs automatically.

Every night, a client receives dozens to hundreds of PDFs via SFTP from one of their clients.  These documents need to be printed (unfortunately).  They want a system that can either be scripted or set to check folders (and sub folders) for new files and print them automatically throughout the night.

I've done some research and found an AutoIT compiled script but it doesn't work well because some of these pages are being (incorrectly) identified as 8.5x13 when the utility attempts to print them (printing them with Acrobat (and reviewing the print options) indicates they are 8.5x11).  And of course, when the page size changes, the job hangs and stops all other jobs until you fix it...

So I need something that can do this intelligently... shrink the page to fit, ignore the page size and just print to whatever paper is present (cutting off excess - which will almost never actually happen), etc.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm willing to script a utility that WORKS so it doesn't have to do everything... but if someone has a product designed to monitor (a) folder(s) and print the contents, including PDFs, that's great too.

I don't think I can use Acrobat because it wants to leave the program open after printing... 900 instances of acrobat would be a problem in the morning...

And using a script to subsequently kill acrobat isn't practical... …
Would like to merge multiple files of varying file types into one PDF.  These files are being uploaded to an Amazon S3 bucket.  Need a way to just select the files I need via a web interface on my website and output the files into 1 PDF.  Is there code or scripts anyone can recommend to accomplish this task?  Some file type examples needing to be merged into 1 PDF would be JPEG, PNG, and PDF.

Code I am working in is basic .NET C#

Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks!
I am a French student intern in a construction company who charge me to create a database linked to pdf documents.
I would like to create a connection between pdf forms filled in to my MS Access database, is it possible without to much programming ?
If it is too complicated, maybe it is possible with forms on word or excel, but I prefer the pdf forms...

Hope to hearing from you soon

Kind Regards
Today, I have found some important data while reading some adobe documents. But, when I tried to highlight something I have found that I can't use highlight tool in pdf. Does anyone know solution for this?
I received a large PDF file. It took days for me to type in all the information. I would like to save this file with the text. Is there any work-around to saving this PDF file with my entered text?
There was a message bar that said that I cannot save the text and that if I try to save the document, I just get the original PDF file saved devoid of my text entries. Sure enough, those words were true. For that reason, I shut off WIFI because an update might cause a reboot, and I would lose my text.

Luckily on Windows 10, I was able to print to a PDF file which I was able to transfer to a Windows 7 laptop, and email that file back to the sender. The printed PDF file has all my information, but it is not-editable; and I can't even copy text data from this saved file.

I had asked the sender to send me a PDF file with the ability to save the text, in case of a OS crash. Answer was a firm "No" - end of discussion. Anyway, now that I have sent the completed form back to the sender, this request doesn't matter. I am still keeping the Acrobat program in memory with my text data in case I get feedback that I have to revise it.

If I can't save my PDF file text, I started thinking about a work-around by using a new SSD that I will use to replace the HD someday; but I fail to see how I can use it to give me a backup of the in-memory work that I have done. For now, I put my Windows 10 laptop to sleep on a permanent basis until I figure this one out, or just give up, and let the …
I'm trying to make adobe as default to open PDF files but after I reboot the PC, it switches back to Microsoft EDGE as default to open PDF files. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
