Hello, we have two major issues with Acrobat when we print.
We have Acrobat Professional 6.01 and Windows XP.

We used VB6 to automate most of process and we have used standard CAcroAVDoc & CAcroApp methods.

For example,
Dim AcroExchAVDoc() As CAcroAVDoc
AcroExchAVDoc(form).PrintPages(0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

We discovered that when Acrobat prints, it doesn’t always use Zoom 100% even we told it not to use shrink option.
We have to set Page Scaling to None in order to print with Zoom 100%.
Q1) How can we print the document with Zoom 100 % using VB method?

When we look at the Adobe PDF Printing Preference from Control Panel/Printers,
Under the Adobe PDF Settings tab, there is a checkbox (Do not send fonts to “Adobe PDF”)
Q2) Is there a way we can uncheck this box programmatically using VB?

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
