Does anyone know of a pdf viewer which gives me the ability to have pdfs print when I open them? After researching I've learned that the paid version of acrobat allows you to do this but for my application it's not worth the $14 a month. I was almost able to achieve this with foxit by editing a pdf's properties and adding the action -print when open- but the property sticks only to the pdf I added it to, I need to have all pdfs I open to have the print action. Is their a work around? 


Thank you

I think you need to provide more context about your case...


If you right click on a PDF file and select the print option it prints immediately to the default printer. If you are creating a program most languages can call the shell and pass the verb print to do the equivalent action that you can do manually.
