I have some trouble with PDF presets in Indesign. I can't create new nor retrieve PDF presets. This is probably due to not having write access to C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings where the pdf presets are located. It's not an option to give me write access to it but instead I was wondering if their is a possibility to redirect where adobe indesign retrieves these pdf presets. (Redirect from C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings to another folder). I didn't find any option regarding this in Indesign but perhaps you guys have any idea?
I'm afraid I don't. Why is it not possible to give you the access you need?
Custom (user) settings are actually stored in (User)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings
That's is correct, however I think Indesign reads to C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings and to even create a new adobe preset you need write access to this folder. Otherwise you are not able to retrieve nor create a new preset.
