Hi guys! I am wanting to reprint all the pieces of my portflio. At school when i use acrobat pro, I have a setting to put epson premium presentation paper (the kind of paper I use to print work). I also have a setting to print quality over speed, which makes the printing a whole lot slower but it looks best.

Now I am printing at home. I have adobe acrobat x (not pro). At school we had version 9 and it was pro so had those settings. Now that I am using x and it isnt pro, I dont see a setting for quality over speed. I also dont see a setting for certain epson paper.

Could it be a driver issue? Is it because I am not using acrobat pro? Or is it because this is version 10 and I need 9?

Thank you guys for any help you can provide :)

to clarify (because I tend to type a lot):

I want to find the epson premium print settings in adobe acrobat (they are gone now that I do not use acrobat pro from school.


Thank you guys!

Those type of settings are typically part of a printer driver. I am assuming your home printer and school printer are different, that could be your problem.

As a start, what printer is at home, and what is at school (ie if you have an HP printer at home, missing the Epson page setup is unsurprising).

I figured it out,

I guess my epson printer drivers suppost acrobat 9 and not 10.

The settings are back to normal when I installed 9.

Thank you guys anyway! :D

"setting for certain epson paper" could be manually added.

It's called printer calibration or downloading the paper / printer profile.

Printer profile is usually available only for high end printers, not cheap home printers.
