Slow print speed on certain pages from large documents
in Acrobat Pro DC 2017 and Acrobat Reader DC 2017, the software often stucks during print of certain pages. Compared 1:1 to Reader XI, the old version also takes more time for these pages compared to the other ones but there is a large difference between there versions. In the attached screenshots you can see the difference between these two versions with the printing job started at the same time. The problem occurs while using Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Thanks for your valuable feedback.
Adobe is working with Microsoft to resolve the problem. Meanwhile, you can manually tweak the registry as a workaround,
1. Open the registry by going to Run (Windows menu + R), typing regedit.exe, and then clicking OK.
2.Do the following:
Based on your installed version of product and release, navigate to the location and create a corresponding key of type DWORD (Wow6432Node only if your machine is 64-bit).
Create the key FeatureState at the location listed below; the key is not present by default.
For Acrobat DC 2017:
Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\(Wow6432Node)\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureState

thank you for these very helpful Information. I tried to use the workaround but unfortunately this does not help in (with Acrobat Reader 2018.009.20050) on my test machines. Is there any other difference between Acrobat Reader and Acrobat Pro? I will try it on a machine with Acrobat Pro.
Is my registry key for Acrobat Reader correct (in .reg file scheme)?
