Windows 7: Printing multiple pdfs at once

Printing multiple pdfs at once

Does anyone know a way to send more that 1 pdf to the printer? I do not get any print option when i select them all. I have to open each pdf then print, and it takes a very long time.

Could you combine them into one file? What about right-clicking on each one and choosing print?

You don't need Acrobat to do that.

Merge PDF Documents Easily and for Free using MergePDF.net

You are limited by size, and would have to rerun the docs through if you had more than 10. However, if you Google around, you'll find plenty of other options.

Hi aekblade,

I 'can' just highlight them, right click and choose print. It takes a little while for them all to spool. Maybe 15 seconds before the second one appeared, but quicker for the third (depends on file size and pages).

Check if your Print spooler is running by running net start spooler from an elevated command prompt.

Hi aekblade,

They are local files on a local (USB) printer with windows 7 64bit.

Are you working from windows 7 ?
OR is your problem on Server 2008?
OR are you navigating to a network share or DFS share hosted on Server 2008?
OR is the printer hosted on Server 2008 (locally or via the print server role).
Or something else

I'm a little confused as to your set-up; but I'm happy to test on a copy of Server 2008 here if you explain it.

Hi aekblade,

They are local files on a local (USB) printer with windows 7 64bit.

Are you working from windows 7 ? - yes 64x
OR is your problem on Server 2008? they are from network drives based off a x64 server 2008
OR are you navigating to a network share or DFS share hosted on Server 2008? yes
OR is the printer hosted on Server 2008 (locally or via the print server role).
Or something else yes printers are also hosted off 2008 server

I'm a little confused as to your set-up; but I'm happy to test on a copy of Server 2008 here if you explain it.

One question before I set up a mini vmware aekblade network. Are they Distributed File System shares or just a shared directory on a single server. S2008 offers DFS shares where you can share folders from many repositories and many servers, but through one single IPaddress. Potentially this could make our scenario play differently, so I'd rather create your setup as is.

EDIT: By the way does the option to right click and print exist? and are you sure it's not denied via group policy?

no DFS - just a simple share on a single server.
