The batch printers created by one local administrator are seen by all other users (both local admins and general users) but cannot be used.

When another user tries to print to a batch printer (that was created by another user), PDF reDirect starts it's main windows instead of just generating the PDF file. The preferences button shows the dialog with only the first button "General" present.

EXPECTED: Printers created by one user are either hidden from the other users or can be fully used by other users.

P.S. I do not plan to use PDF reDirect in multi-user environments, so I'm just reporting what I found. I do not expect any fix ;)

Hi Andrew,

   Good point. I am not 100% sure I can "hide" the batch printers from the other users, but I'll take a look.

   However, the ability to "share" the PDF printers (with the User Interface or the Batch Printers) will be added in the next release.
