Hello, I'd like to print with a command line, but when I execute adobe reader with the command /t, then a PDF file is printed on a default printer. Is it possible to print with a command line and set printer and print settings?

And is possible to show only print dialog before printing? Thank you for your answers.

Yes. Use /p instead of /t to do that.

Window is still opening with /p. I am using Acrobat Reader DC version 2021.001.20145.

Reader is designed to open the window and leave it open. It is not designed for automatic UI-less printing.

Well yes, you can't display just the Print dialog and not the application window that hosts it...

No, the command line has no such options, and Reader has no API to set them. You might be able to do this with paid-for Acrobat via complex JavaScript, not sure.

No, it's the same for both applications. And JS can't be used from the command-line.
