Mulitiple installs of the PDF-XChange Printer 2012

Post by evdbogaard » Mon Nov 02, 2015 1:08 pm

I use to have multiple installs of the PDFX5 printer driver and named them like "PDFX Copy", "PDFX Blanc", "PDFX Letterhead", etc., all with different settings (like a watermark "Copy", etc.)

After updating to the latest version of PDF-XChange Pro (5.5.315.0) those printers have disappeared and are replaced by one printer "PDF-XChange Printer 2012".
I can't get them back by renaming this printer and installing again. With previous versions that used to keep the renamed version and added a new version of "Printer 2012".

Am I missing something?

Is there a possibility to change the profile for the printer driver using VBA for Word (from within Word)?

Kind regards,
Ed

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the post - I'd recommend taking a look at our online help, as all of the necessary command line options to add new printers are listed here:
http://help.tracker-software.com/EUM/de ... inter_2012

As for selecting the profile via VBA, I don't believe that this is possible at the moment. I'll ask the Dev. if any command line options for profile management exist and, if not, whether they can be added - that should allow you to access them via VBA.

Cheers,
