How to create (print) Architectural size sheets in Adobe X?

Jun 18, 2012 11:37 AM

Prior to upgrading to Adobe X we used to have the ability to select Architectural paper sizes in Adobe PDF properties which allowed us to create/print to larger scale sizes.  W/ the new version of Adobe the paper standards tab is missing and we can only print to large PDF's from AutoCAD or if the files we have rec'd are already formatted in the larger scale size.  Is there some kind of update we need to do?  Help!! 

 

Thanks

Elaine

    It's a much better workflow to create a PDF from an authoring application like AutoCad than to create a PDF from existing PDF using the Adobe PDF Printer. You could loose a lot of valuable information in the file  -- like layers and hyperlinks, etc. Are you saying that you no longer see the Page Size option dropdown options?

    What OS are you running Acrobat X on?

    The list of the paper sizes available to Acrobat comes from the PPD file (for PostScript printers) for the Adobe PDF Printer. Can you see any PPD files in the Acrobat X installation directory like <install directory>/Acrobat/Xtras/AdobePDF/<chipset name>? Is this a local install of Acrobat?

    Are you using the Std. or Pro. version of Acrobat? I believe you need the Pro. version for this.
