Change printer and settings

Does anyone know if it’s possible to change which printer to use and the settings of that printer for another program to use, namely Acrobat? I’ve tried with applecript but it won’t allow me to select the popup options within ‘Page Setup…’ and the printer dialog window. I’ve tried using UI Browser but to no avail.

Please help me, I’m stranded!! :frowning:

Model: Powerbook G4
AppleScript: 2.1
Browser: Safari 412.5
Operating System: Mac OS X (10.4)

If you use QuicKeys, you can have your AppleScript script trigger a QuicKeys shortcut to switch printers or select a popup menu item for a different set of preconfigured printer settings. I use this method in AppleScript to select a different paper tray to print from.
