Print as Image default setting when printing from command line.

Is there a way to get Adobe DC to "print as image" when launching and printing via command line? We have a automatic batch printing program that prints PDFs via cmd line, however some files are too large and cause errors.

I tried to manually set the printers I am using to "print as image" by default. I even double checked the registry keys to make sure cPrintAsImage had the printers keys. Works fine when I manually open Adobe and print something (small file sizes spooling). However, when the command line tries to open Adobe and print, I notice the file sizes spooling are same as if "print as image" were turned off.

I know that the defaults registry keys are set per current user, but who would the current user be when opening Adobe from command line?

Any thoughts?

Hi @Ezequiel29789549c5ow,

 

Hope you are doing well. Per the description, you want to use command line to print files as images.

 

You will need to change the print preferences within Acrobat to have the changes appear.

 

To do so, go to Actobat-> Open a file-> Go to File menu-> Print-> Advanced-> Check the option to print as an image-> Save the new settings so it is applied every time.
