Hello Tom,

Why do you want to reprint an already existing PDF - you should be able to modify pretty much anything in it without such need with the Core API, and even the Tools SDK should be able to achieve most things you might need, and then you just directly save the modified PDF, without a need to print it.

In any case if printing really is a must - you will need to do that with an application that can send PDF files to a printer (e.g. the Editor via command line), and then let the driver API handle the creation of the new PDF file.

Regards,
Stefan

A printed document does not have the security restrictions as the original file...

Hi Tom,

I see. Lets continue the discussion in the other topic that will make reprinting unnecessary.

Regards,
Stefan
