I am the person that will be helping you today.

When the Adobe Acrobat Reader application is not "communicating" with the printer, what exactly does that mean? For instance, does the reader application not recognize the printer or is the problem with something else?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,

it prints fine the problem is when printing files with both letter size and legal size pages the printer is not reading the different pages sizes. I have a dual tray. The manufacture said it was a software issue with adobe reader.

Adobe won't supply support for the reader program
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

When you say that it isn't reading the different page sizes, does that mean when you choose to print to Legal size, it will print as if it is printing to letter size or something along those lines?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is supposed to automatically detect the different page sizes in the document and automatically switch trays. All the settings for this to occur are set but for some reason it does not switch trays. I can do it manually but that takes forever with an aveage document file of 180 pages.

If the document is 1 page or 1,000 pages, the manual fix take about the same time, about 15 seconds. Are you saying that in the document, there are some legal size pages and some letter size pages that you wish to collate within the same document?

there are both letter and legal size pages with in the same document. I print Loan Documents
