Enhanced PDF Working

Organisations rely on information stored in millions of Adobe Acrobat documents within their enterprises. However printing PDFs from within Internet Explorer requires the installation of Adobe Acrobat Reader on every client computer and provides little control of print settings and appearance.

The ScriptX Enhanced PDF Working option solves these issues, by providing organisations with a high degree of programmatic control over the printing of web-based Adobe Acrobat documents through Microsoft Internet Explorer clients within the enterprise. This improves the batching, appearance and consistency of printed PDFs. No Adobe software is required on the client PC.

Benefits of Enhanced PDF Working:

Please note that the spool-size of printed PDF documents may be larger than expected with consequences for performance. Please evaluate performance is acceptable.
