Title: print pdf A3
Post by gelf on Jan 26th, 2012 at 11:12pm
would it be possible to specify paper size or other print settings when getting watch directory to print a pdf? we have a old photocopier that is not able to talk to our mac network, so I have set up watch directory on a windows machine so people can print via dropping the pdf to the watched folder, I would like to create second watch folder for printing A3 files etc. can this be done in the batch file?

For that you need to setup a second printer on your PC/Server with he same driver and port, but give it and share it with a different name, and set the needed paper size and tray and so on as *default* setting for this printer.
Let WatchDirectory use that "new" printer for the task.
