AFAIK, the default has been “Document and Markups” for over a decade now (starting with Acrobat 8, IIRC).
But the reason these annots don’t print is that they don’t have any appearances – and that is what is used at print time.

I have a document (https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fpdf.ousia.tk%2Flink-annotation.pdf&data=02%7C01%7C%7C105c5f6eb17642a0085708d4a538f3d5%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C1%7C636315111482171777&sdata=L012eQIXdGSAX3niKHhoJWUNolAF9RYbM12rSDWUmpQ%3D&reserved=0) which
contains an link annotation such as:
12 0 obj
/A 7 0 R
/Border [ 0 0 .5 ]
/C [ .6 .6 .6 ]
/Rect [ 70.867 339.972 496.06 354.4 ]
The annotation flag is set to Print (/F 4). evince-3.22.1 (using
poppler-0.45.0) doesn’t print it.
Acrobat doesn’t print it, but I think this is by a different reason.
Besides the issue (which I would report later), I would like to
understand why Acrobat doesn’t follow PDF32000_2008.pdf.
Acrobat sets four printing levels (copied from the link in the document
- Document contents.
- Document contents and markings.
- Document contents and stampings.
- Form fields only. (This one is irrelevant here.)
As far as I can remember (but I might be wrong) Acrobat didn’t print any
annotation by default. Annotation printing had to be explicitly enabled.
Is that right or what am I missing?
