Hi, sorry for another silly question. I want to add the adobe pdf 8.0 printer so that I can print things straight to PDF. And btw, running OSX 10.5.8 and have adobe acrobat pro 10.0
I know that if I click print I can click the PDF dropdown menu and save as a pdf but often online I encounter forms and other pics and things that offer for me to print and it never opens up "print" it just directly prints to my default printer, it also doesn't open up what I want to print in a web page so I can't just print it that way.
I don't know if I'm making any sense I just want to set my default printer to PDF so I don't have to always be printing straight to my printer.
Thanks for any help again.
-Kevin

I'm sorry, I don't get it.
I also tried adding a printer via making a localhost and that didn't work either.

Which part do you not understand? Here's a link to the software they were referencing. The instructions may be more complete:
