We have been resigned for some years to use the "Print as Image" setting in Adobe Reader to assure successful printing. I normally have to instruct all our users how to set this. Is there a setting in the Windows XP registry that controls the "Print as Image" setting? I have searched without any success. It would sure make it a lot easier if I could use a registry edit for my users.
I'm not sure if there is a registry setting or not. You "may be able to set it in the defaults for the printer.
But why are you resigned to using it? The only reason I know of is to get improperly created PDF's to print. Maybe we can help you there?
I have found the solution at this link:
We are an automated machine engineering company and we have about 40 mechanical and electrical engineers. They open and print many PDF manuals and documents from everywhere. I have found that "Print to Image" corrects all of the problems 100% of the time. No need to troubleshoot or figure out what is wrong with a document, it just works.
Thank you very much for your reply.
