I hate when I print a pdf the print dialog box opens... Is there a way to just print to the defaulted printer.
But be careful for what you ask. Printing a PDF file does entail options such as page ranges, copy count, simplex/duplex, fitting to page, etc. Eliminate those options appearing and you are at the mercy of whatever was last done (i.e., sticky settings). You may actually need a fairly complex script to fill in exactly what options you always want for a one-button print solution.
Please don't treat us like children. This issue is NOT addressed.
Not everyone who uses DC is a power user of print-production documents.
Many of us simply like the greater annotation and document handling capabilities we had under the old, and often missed, Acrobat Pro product line.
If memory serves correctly, Pro had a Quick Print button (Pro also had a much, MUCH, better deskew functionality, but that's another topic).
The issue here is we are trying to save keystrokes...and TIME.
Many of us are paid on results...so TIME = results = pay. Make sense?
Your response "But be careful for what you ask." comes off as that of governmental/paternalistic bureaucrat.
We know how to configure our Toolbars.
We know how to tell the difference between the full-functioned Print button and the Quick Print button.
At least we do in Office and the several other industry-standard products that offer this functionality.
Please and Thank-you!
Sorry about the fact that Dov's answer does not fit your requirements, but the answer is correct and answers the question to the point.
The Adobe print dialogue has been built to do anything you need in one dialogue. Only if there are special requirements, you will need to pass on and use the printer manufacturers panel. Those panels are very often overloaded with functionallity spread over different tabs, that it is a pain to use them, if you need them.
Out of memory, I would say that Pro had no Quick print button.But you ma prove me wrong on this topic. The question, however, is not new:
But what would be so complicated about, or a problem with, one single toolbar button to immediately print a currently open PDF to the default printer with the default (or last-used) settings ?
So simple, and implemented in practically every other app use !
It's quite a dangerous feature to implement. Consider that some PDF files are thousands of pages long. Imagine you click on the wrong thing and your professional office printer starts spewing thousands of color pages... This can be a real nightmare for professional environments such as printing houses. Better to have a dialog first, confirming the user's request to print before actually implementing it.
Anyway, if you want to have this option (at your own risk), you can use this free tool I've developed that does just that: http://try67.blogspot.com/2021/03/acrobatreader-quick-print-free.html
All you have to do is:
"CRTL + P" and "Enter" (CMD + P on Mac)
It's faster than clicking on any icon.
