    Default Printing Multiple Copies

    I need to print multiple copies of a PDF. I cannot send the job to the printer x times because we may print say 100 copies of the same thing, and we get a printer history report that will be filled with these duplicates.

    I've looked through the Javascript API docs, and I see how to do everything else besides printing multiple copies. Did I miss something?

    Thanks. -will

    After a little Google-ing, I wanted to clarify that the number of copies will vary. Thus I cannot embed the number of copies into the PDF. Sometimes we will need 10 copies, another time 56. I am hoping to do this some how via PHP, even if I have to pass parameters and execute from PHP the Acrobat Reader exe.

    Thanks.

    Do you control the Acrobat/Reader that is doing the printing? or is that going to live on an end users machine?

    Trying to get a better understanding of the workflow.

    I definitely can. Just trying to automate the printing of these files in any way I can.

    We have a Web based "flyer" request Web site our sales reps log in to. They pick which PDF they want, and how many copies they want. Right now, it sends an E-mail to an admin staff here. She has to go to each file, open, print x times. I'm hoping to make it automated where it could basically print all by itself as the PDFs are being requested (or a batch of them).

    I have complete control over the process and can implement almost anything to streamline this.

    Thank you.

    I would definitely look at doing server-side "injection" of JavaScript into the PDF to auto-print when it comes up in the browser - prefilling the number of copies.

    Ah, ok. Shouldn't be a problem. Sounds like it would work. Is that the only way to set the number of copies (via JS)? Just exploring all available options. Currently the user doesn't have a Web page to print off of, but that can be done.

    Thanks! I will definitely look into JS.
