I'm sending a batch of 11"x17" PDFs to Acrobat to print. Problem is, Acrobat prints them in 8.5"x11". It just sends them to the default printer with the default settings.

Does anyone know how to change the default printer's paper size to 11"x17" in VB.NET? OR tell Acrobat (through code) that the PDF is to be printed in 11"x17"?

Thanks for your help.

Have you tried changing the default printer's default settings?
If you open the default Printer's settings and change it, it would normally stick.

Thanks for your reply. I realize that I can change the paper size through the normal control panel routes (it works) - but I would like to accomplish this through code. I'm creating a little app that would run on a few PCs.
