Adobe PDF printer Resolution

Jan 28, 2010 12:43 PM

Hi:

 

I am going to be deploying Adobe Acrobat 9 to my organization.  Due to our print requirements, I need to set the PDF Printer Resolution to 600 DPI, it's default value is 1200 dpi.

 

I need to know which registry key needs to be changed.

 

I can only find one under AVGeneral called iprintDPI but changing this does nothing to the PDF printer resolution.  I have changed the resolution in the driver manually to 600 dpi and this key is not updated.

 

If this can not be done in the registry, is there another way around it?

 

 

Thank you,

    I was scratching my head on how I can resolve this. And after doing what you suggested, it helps. Thanks a lot. You save my day.

    I think the same thing  you can do in the product edit options.  Just like as suggest in the canon ip4600 manuals.   But if you have gotten already then there is no need.

    Hi,

     

    Is there more to this solution? I've changed the registry keys you mentioned but the resolution/dpi setting for my Adobe PDF driver does not change. I am using Windows 2008 Server R2 and Adobe Acrobat X.

     

    Thanks,

    Dan

    ...Same results in my Windows 7/Adobe Acrobat X as well.

     

    Thanks,

    Dan

    In the case of the Adobe PDF Printer resolution and a physical printer both use a settings file.  The Adobe PDF Printer uses an *.joboptions file and a physical printer printed to by Acrobat/Reader uses an *.settings file.  At least in my experience that's how it's supposed to work.

    I haven't been able to get either to work for this particular setting.

    Dan,

     

    Are you attempting to change the DPI for a physical printer or the Adobe PDF Printer (virtual)?
