Trouble printing from Acrobat 9.4.2? Adobe has a few solutions for you to try

Acrobat is a staple of the Windows office domain. Almost all online journals are distributed in the PDF format, and while Acrobat isn't always the best, or lightest way to view PDFs, it's what most PDF authors will turn to. Since Acrobat was updated to 9.4.2, some unfortunate users have been having issues printing with errors like: "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup...

How to use Google Chrome as your default PDF reader on Windows

I don't often need to open a PDF file, and when I do it's typically something I'm looking at in my Web browser. Since I'm using Google Chrome, the built-in PDF viewer is what I use 90% of the time. I do, however, get the odd email at my day job (where we don't use webmail) with a PDF attachment I need to read. So I thought, "why not open those in Chrome, too?" It's easy enough to set up....

Sumatra PDF, the open-source Adobe Reader replacement, improves performance, printing

Sumatra -- the lightweight, open source alternative to Adobe Reader -- has just updated to version 1.3 and lead developer Krzysztof Kowalczyk has delivered some welcome improvements. Sumatra now uses libjpeg-turbo for faster rendering of some PDFs and its printing support has been improved. Documents can also be zoomed and rotated using your keyboard via the + and * keys, respectively. Sumatra...

Adobe X Suite available for Thanksgiving

We've seen announcements of the Adobe's Acrobat X suite, then Adobe Reader X and Acrobat X landed to strip our wallets of yet more moolah. But now the full Adobe X Suite is available for download, including a trial version for those who'd like to test it before sinking the best part of $800. The Windows-only Acrobat X Suite is a little bit like a best-of album: you've got Acrobat X Pro, Photoshop...

Adobe Reader X now available for Android and desktop OSes

For better or worse, Adobe's latest iteration of Reader is now available for both Android and desktop OSes. From the sandboxed Reader 'protected-mode', to the new multimedia implementations, there's quite a bit in the new Acrobat X suite of software. Adobe Reader for Android brings quite a few changes with one of the highlights being text search, an invaluable tool for anyone reading any sort of...

New Adobe zero-day hole already exploited, Trojan virus in the wild

Is it just me, or are Adobe Acrobat and Reader about as secure as the contents of President Skroob's suitcase? Remember that new zero-day exploit which they announced yesterday? Well, if yesterday was day zero it's now day one, and that exploit is being targeted by the bad guys. Trend Micro reports that a trojan is spreading which drops a downloader -- which then drops another downloader. From...

Adobe finally ready to make Reader, Acrobat updates mandatory

With 2010 just begun, Adobe seems primed to take yet another step in making sure Acrobat and Adobe Reader users are protected from the security exploits which plagued the apps in 2009.

Open source Adobe Reader alternative Sumatra PDF hits version 1.0

Adobe has done a lot to improve Reader in recent versions. I'm more than happy to run an open source alternative, however. Sumatra PDF is ridiculously small (a 1.2Mb download), lightweight, and handles the PDFs I throw at it without skipping a beat. Today, Sumatra has finally hit version 1.0. Sumatra's a pretty bare-bones application, so don't expect any mind-blowing changes. What the new...
