in Windows 10, it is easy to "print to pdf", but is there a way to set the default so that the new pdf document always opens automatically? In Word, using the "save as" function, and selecting pdf, there is a box that can be checked to achieve this - but can the same default be achieved by "print to pdf" rather than "save as"? This would make it suitable to applications other than Word, like printing to pdf from iTunes.
Using the Windows 10 control panel for Devices & Printers I can access the Adobe PDF printer and on the PDF Printer Preferences page there is an option to "View PDF Printer Results".
In Settings, there is not even an option for Adobe PDF - only "Microsoft Print to PDF" - there are no options to check a box anywhere from those choices
It sounds as if you have not paid for Acrobat. So you don’t have any Adobe software that can help you with this. Acrobat is around $15 per month.
I answered as I did because this is the forum for Adobe Acrobat not Windows. You could install Nitro PDF Reader and get a PDF printer that supports that feature. Not available with Adobe Reader.
What if the box is checked, but it's still not working?
box is checked and it does not open to view. Anyone figure this out?
Same issue. When I initially began using, they opened. Suddenly, they stopped despite that results box being checked.
What's the exact version number of the application (You can find it out by going to Help - About Adobe Acrobat)? What's your OS version?
