I need help with Javascripting in Adobe Acrobat. I want to print a document of 2 pages automatically. But the first page in 11x17 size and 2nd in 8.5x11 size. I wanted to try out a script that will work for this. I do have RICOH industrial printer that has both the trays for the sizes.

Thanks in advance

Is that the actual size of the PDF pages, though?

The both the pages are 11x17. But the printer is multitray. It has 8.5x11 and 17x11 paper. I want to print 1st page in 11x17 and 2nd in 8.5x17, everytime. Can you please help me out with this?

That's not possible. A script can send each page to the appropriate tray based on its size, but the page has to be in the correct size first. The only other options are to send each page to a separate printer, if you can define each tray as such, or to scale the pages before printing them.

If that's the case. I am comfortable sending the 1st page to 11x17 printer and the 8.5x11 to a smaller printer, as I do have the more printers in the network. But, what would be the code that I would require to use for that purpose.

 

Thanks for responding to my issue. @try67
