Printing PDFs

The most common printer is the desktop printer. The resolution of a typical desktop printer can range from 300 dpi to 600 dpi. Printing to a desktop printer is fairly straightforward.

To set up printing on a Macintosh:

1.
From the Apple menu, pick the Chooser (Figure 5.36).

The Chooser window opens.

2.
Select your printer.

3.
Click the close box in the top-left corner of the Chooser window.

4.
Open the PDF file that you want to print in Acrobat.

5.
Choose Page Setup from the File menu to open the Page Setup dialog box (Figure 5.37).

6.
Set page size, page orientation, and scaling; then, if you are finished, click OK.

If you want to set any PostScript options, choose PostScript from the pop-up menu to display the appropriate options (Figure 5.38); then, if you are finished, click OK.

The options you can set are Flip Horizontal, Flip Vertical, Invert Image, Substitute Fonts, Smooth Text, Smooth Graphics, Precision Bitmap Alignment, and Unlimited Downloadable Fonts.

10.
Set any Acrobat-specific options and then click the Print button (Figure 5.40).
