Customize Profile with Profile Editor

(The profile you add can be seen and choosed in the "Profile" list next to "Profile Editor" button in "Custom" tab.)

You can choose th profile type at the bottom of the profile pane as Public or Private:

1. A private profile is visible only to the current user. By default new profiles are created as private and only the users from the computer where it was created will be able to see it and create PDFs using it.

2. Public profiles are visible from all client computers or other users on the same computer that connect to and print via the computer where they are defined (the printer server). When a public profile will be used, all the settings from that profile will be propagated to the client computers.

This profile pane shows both private and public profiles that were defined. The icon on the right of the profile name shows what type of profile it is (public or private). You can filter the shown profiles by starting to type in the search field and also use the Public/Private checkboxes to filter them by type.
