Hi,

Using Adobe Pro I created a new form that a user can fill in digitally. But I know a certain part of my customers prefer to print it first and then fill it in.

The form has two drop down list fields. If printed the user can’t see the values in this lists.

I thought about creating a print form along in the same document. If the user fills in the form I want it to print page 1 and if the fields are empty I want to automatically print page 2 and 3.

I tried the “will print” JavaScript but did not succeed yet. Can anyone help me out?

It's possible, but not via the Will Print event. You would need to add your own Print button to the file to do it.

Thank you for your reply. I thought of that option too. Evaluate if the fields are filled and then sent a print command.

So it is not possible to overwrite the default printing command from Adobe with a new JavaScript command?
