I was able to print even pictures out of my camera software or IE-websites as PDF, choosing Adobe Acrobat as printer (yes, it was the free download)
Adobe Reader doesn't come with a PDF Printer. You can buy and install Adobe Acrobat. This will install a printer named 'Adobe PDF'.
I never purchased Adobe Acrobat and it was possible? It is not about "not want to buy", but if it was possible before with the free version I thought somebody might know how to do it now with #9
It has never been possible with the free version.
You may have either had Acrobat or one of many other applications that can print to PDF.
I don't know if this was a feature of Acrobat Rader 6 that was discontinued.
If you want to try, you can still download it from http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/6.x/6.0/enu/AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe (and/or try Reader 7 from http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/7x/7.1.0/enu/AdbeRdr710_en_US.exe).
