I don't know much about printing, but as I was explained it, the problem
is that Acrobat Reader uses a special EMF escape to directly send
Postscript or something like it to the printer and that does not work
right in Wine. As far as I know Acrobat Reader is the only application
with this problem.

I would say it is already working with most major applications. I think
it works with Photoshop and it certainly works with all of the Office
