Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for PC

PDF files only print in landscape

Hello!
I have a user who's running Adobe Standard 8 who has lost his ability to print PDF files portrait style. They all come out landscape. A regular printout comes out on two sheets of paper split down the middle. This didn't used to happen and he swears he hasn't made any changes to the pc, run any updates etc. I'm stumped! I was going to try to download a Post Script driver for his printer but the HP page for what I need is unavailable. Is it worth waiting for HP to fix that page or do you think I have a different problem?
So far we have printed to different models of printers through out the company and we keep getting the same result. I really don't know what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Melissa

    Just realized how dumb that sounds... if I get the same result from other printers it's not a driver problem. Sorry. Still have no idea what to do next though!

    same problem, any ideas?

  • yoterryh Nov 07, 2008

    I just realized I'm having the same issue across multiple printers. Also, even whne I select "current page only", all pages print!

    Hi there! Have the same issue on one system but not on another. If you come up with a solution I would appreciate a cc.



    Thanks,

When the HP print menu pops up, choose "Fit to printable area" under Page Scaling. The default is "none" and causes the 1/2 page landscape issue.

You could just rotate your photos.


or




the settings on the printer its self may need to be reconfigured.  1) go into your computer's control panel. 2) select "printers and faxes". 3) find your printer and left click it. 4) select "properties". 5) at the top of the menu that pops up choose "advanced". 6) once you click that look for a button near the bottom that says  "Printing defaults". 7) on the side you can choose for your printer to print in portrait or landscape.

From the info you provided, seems like your Adobe Acrobat Professional wasn't installed properly or there are some missing files.
If you have the installation file, try installing the software again.
(When you click on Yes, nothing happens because adobe cannot find the Installation/setup file on your laptop.)
If you do not have the Adobe installation files, as an alternative download CutePDF writer. Its free and hardly takes any space on your pc/laptop (<4MB)
Direct Download Link for CutePDF
Once downloaded, install the software and follow the steps below:
1. Open the Word file you want to convert to pdf
2. try to print it
3. before printing, the time when u have to select your printer, select Cute PDF Writer as shown in the image below
4. Click on print

5. The Word document will be printed as a PDF file and you'll be asked where you want to save it :)
6. Choose your destination.
7. When the printing is completed, you can open the pdf file in Adobe PDF reader
* You don't need a printer to do this
* You can follow the same steps and print excel/powerpoint files to pdf (or any other file type that you can "print")
Hope this helped!

When printing postcard...it comes out portrait instead of landscape


You might want to check the printer properties. You are probably relying on PrintMaster and are believing what it is saying. If it is saying it will print in landscape, then make sure that is what the printer is set up to do. Try it both ways on the printer settings, just in case one is canceling the other.

What is acrobat reader?


Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's

Plug-in from Adobe. It reads documents in PDF format on any platform.


A program from Adobe that lets you capture a document and then view it in its original format and appearance


Adobe has changed the names of the products in the Acrobat family regularly, also splitting-up, joining, or discontinuing products. Between version 3 and 5, Standard and Professional versions were one product simply called Adobe Acrobat.
As of October 2009[update], the current main members of the Adobe Acrobat family are:
64px-adobe_reader.svg.png magnify-clip.pngAdobe Reader 8/9 Icon
  • Adobe Reader 9 (Windows, Mac and Unix)
  • Adobe Acrobat 9 (Windows & Mac only; no Unix version)
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (includes Adobe Presenter)

The latest version
Version 9.0 Adobe Acrobat 9.0 was released July 2008:[10][11]
  • PDF version 1.7 (and prior) supported. There are Adobe extensions to PDF 1.7 for Acrobat 9.
  • Product Family includes: Acrobat Standard 9 (Windows only), Acrobat Pro 9, Acrobat Pro Extended 9 (Windows only).
  • Pro Extended Version includes Adobe Presenter and the features of Acrobat 3D.
  • The ability to create Acroforms was restored to Acrobat Standard in this release (in versions 6 through 8, Acrobat Professional was required).
  • Enable real-time collaboration of PDFs with synchronized document views and chat.
  • Improved Web Capture for capturing entire web pages or just some parts into PDF.
  • Integration with acrobat.com to enable storage and sharing of PDF files.
  • Personalize a PDF Portfolio with customizable templates for navigation and branding.
  • Compare and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF document.
  • Insert FLV (Flash) or H.264 video for direct playback in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
  • Convert a variety of video formats to FLV for playback in PDF.
  • Create PDF maps by importing geospatial files that retain metadata and coordinates.
  • OCR PDFs (Paper Capture) using ClearScan. Adobe ClearScan technology creates custom Type1-CID fonts to match the visual appearance of a scanned document after optical character recognition (OCR). ClearScan does not replace the fonts with your system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM (as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versions), but uses these newly created custom fonts. The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file (this is obviously mandatory). If the OCR does not recognize a word with enough confidence, then the image (bitmap) of the word is shown in the PDF and the text is put above but hidden (same as what is made in "Searchable Image" mode).
  • Adobe Reader 9 drops support for Adobe Reader Extensions 5 and 6 which permit Adobe Reader client software to save changes to filled-in forms in PDFs. Adobe Reader Extensions 6.1 and newer are still supported. Legacy PDFs will still be viewable, however they will open with the warning "This document enables Reader capabilities that are no longer enabled in this Reader version."[12]
  • On March 10, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1 was released which addresses a number of customer workflow issues and a critical security vulnerability while providing more stability.[13]
  • On May 12, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[14]
  • On June 9, 2009, update version 9.1.2 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[15]
  • On July 31, 2009, update version 9.1.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[16]
  • On October 14, 2009, Adobe Acrobat 9.2 was released (added support for Windows 7 x86/x64 and fixed many security issues).[17]
  • On January 12, 2010, Adobe Reader 9.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[18]
  • On February 16, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[19]
  • On April 13, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 was released which addresses several critical security vulnerabilities.[20]

Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of...


Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
1. Printer properties
2. Print preferences
3. Default print setup.
The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

Good luck :)

Printing 2 pages on landscape document


Usually if you see the page in the Publisher window is already landscape, it will go landscape in the Printpreview and also in the print out. I just try to imagine what is your problem.
If I am not mistaken, this is what you did:
You have two "small" pages (maybe A5??) and you want to print it in one page of A4. Of course the A4 should be landscape.
Publisher does not have the facility to set 2 pages A5 in one A4 like in Microsoft Word.
The easiest way is just create a new page with A4, then copy the 2 pages (or you called it flyers) and paste it in that A4 landscape page.
Publisher can do print 2 pages A5 in one sheet A4 but the arrangement is as booklet. You can see the choices in File --> Page Setup --> tab "Layout" --> scroll the Publication type.
I do print 2 pages A5 in one sheet with many variations using addition software named "Clickbook".
Let me know if I m wrong in interpret your problem.
