Wow, 2010 and this is still and issue.
Windows 7, 64 bit
Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard.
IV 2009 (Yes I know it's supported on Windows 7)
PDF printer was making those fun stripes.
Uping the printer's quality to High solved the issue.
Man I need to work on my proof reading skills.
What I meant to say was ...
"is still an issue"
"(Yes I know it's NOT supported on Windows 7)"
As far as making the setting stick, I think I know what you're talking about.
If you make a change to the printer setting from inside a program, the changes are temporary.
Example If you are in Excel and select print and then go to printer properties, all of those changes are associated with that one spread sheet.
What you need to do is go to the "Start" button and then click on printers. When you right click on the Adobe Printer and go to Preferences, any changes you make now will stay with the printer.
Hope that helps.
In Win7, you can: Start>Devices and Printer>Adobe PDF>RMB>Printing Preferences>High Quality.
