In adobe reader 9.3.3 First, select two page view as normal: view->page display->two up Then, change your fullscreen preferences: edit->preferences->full screen->fill screen with one page at a time (uncheck)

Did you make any changes in Adobe Reader? See the below default settings for Page display (go to Edit | Preferences): To increase the resolution increase the pixels/inch from the Resolution section

I use Word for formatting and CutePDF Writer to print it to PDF.

While there are many commercial tools available which allow you to modify/rotate a PDF document and save the changes, you have to download and install the software -- too much of a hassle for a one-off kinda task such as this. Luckily, the fine folks at http://www.rotatepdf.net/ allow you to have your PDF file rotated online to a desired degree (90 ...

Try LaTeX -- it would also look better then. Start with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX and http://miktex.org/

In Acrobat X, Tools > Protection > Hidden Information > Remove Hidden Information It works with me... If the purpose is just to hide the information that was cropped, this works. But if you want to actually make the page smaller, this doesn't do that. The full document is still the original size, with the cropped portions turned white.

You can use Briss to split multi-page PDFs into single page ones (or crop out whatever you want). It loads up all the pages at once and overlays them, so that you can see what portion of the page the text occupies.

ImageMagick's convert tool can be given -flip -flop to reflect in both axes, which will do a 180° rotate. You may want to use the -density option to keep a decent resolution (as pointed out in the comments, the default 70 dpi looks ugly. 300 or 600 dpi give better results)

Make sure you go to Documents ⇨ Rotate Pages and then save it. This should work if you close and reopen. If you go to View ⇨ Rotate View and try to save the document it will not keep the rotated view when you save it. For Adobe Acrobat 10, go to Tools on the right and rotate it that way, then save it.

Word maybe just renders upscaled image and sends it that way as printer input (I presume that Distiller works as a printer). If so, then it's good for normal printers, but inefficient for fake printers producing PDF files. For instance pdfLaTeX properly embeds image in output file. Check my PDF uploaded to min.us gallery: Embedding image in LaTeX document ...

I use OpenOffice.org's word processor to create the resume and then export it as a PDF - it works quite well. If you are used to Microsoft Word, it should be fairly easy to adopt OpenOffice.org - it's very similar to old versions of Word (before the Ribbon). A few things are in different places, but it's not that bad to get used to. Since you are using ...

Expand More Options in the Print dialog box. I'm using Acrobat X but hopefully this will work for your version as well.

If you are able to make it in word just fine, then use a PDF printer driver, such as bullzip (freeware with limitations) or PDFCreator (Free/GPL) and it will come out just like if you printed the document.

You can open the PDF file in an Adobe app like Illustrator and then rotate in there. Then save as PDF and this should work. If you you don't have access to CS3 you may want to try open source PDF editing software.

I fought with Word and not being able to get the fields like I want them and then getting the DOCX file to PDF. Downloaded a copy of Open Office (now using Libre Office). The form editing feature in writer blows Word away and when I'm done with my form I hit the "Save to PDF" button in the toolbar of Libre Office and I have a fillable form. Yes, I kept MS ...

It's a bit old now this question, but I came here via Google, and someone else might also. My solution was to create a Preflight profile (Acrobat 9 Pro) which errored on font information. Clicking on the font name in the results then jumps to the page and highlights the text. Downside is that you get a list of all fonts on all pages organised by page rather ...

Using SQLite DB: The activation information is stored at the location below: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache\cache.db This is a SQLite DB which can be opened with SQLite Database Browser M2. ...

The simplest way is to print as PDF (again) the cropped document. Since the crop tool of Acrobat just hides the area from printing, the resulting new PDF document will not show the hidden areas anymore. In the latest version of Acrobat (at least with v10) printing to pdf from pdf is "not supported". However, the earlier suggestion to remove hidden ...

You can try this: Go to Edit>Preferences>Accessibility This will not change the true contrast, but you can pick contrasting colors of your choice, or one of the defaults, as in the screenshot.

@Jeff also suggested to update your drivers, it might help a bit if they were very outdated. @Mehrdad's suggestion is just wrong, power-save is unlikely as external USB mouse goes just fine. And this is what the documentation says: Check 2D Graphics Accelerator (Windows only) (Appears only if your computer hardware supports 2D graphics ...

Open File > Settings > Advanced, then in Image size and quality section, check option Do not compress images in files (See screen capture to orientate where is this option located) The following image is the same JPG image (document capture 400% zoomed in to show anti-aliasing difference) inserted before and after activating that option:

You can do this with a short batch file and pdftk.exe (not pdftk Builder which is the GUI version). There is no need to install anything. Preparation download & extract pdftk with UniExtract Open ..\pdftk\bin* and copy pdftk.exe and libiconv2.dll to a folder of your choice create a new text file and paste the following code @echo off setlocal ...

You don't tell us, but I assume it: you are using Adobe Acrobat in order to 'crop' your PDF/A? Which exact version is it? Anyway, in the Preferences > Document settings, you can switch off a Display PDF/A in PDF/A-mode. Once you've done that the blue horizontal band informing you about the PDF/A property of the file at the top of each page will disappear, ...

If you're on Linux (or Mac, or any environment where it is installed), you can use a command-line tool called ghostscript to combine them. gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=combinedpdf.pdf -dBATCH file1.pdf file2.pdf file3.pdf You can also use the following to combine all files in the current folder gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite ...

Very first Google hit: Note: In Mac OS, you can turn off the Welcome Screen by setting a preference. Choose Acrobat/Reader > Preferences. In the Categories on the left, click General. In the Application Startup section, deselect Show Welcome Screen. There is no similar option in Windows.

I have installed the Acrobat 11 (XI) trial in VirtualBox. Acrobat 11 is single threaded. I have also made an external script that starts multiple Acrobat instances (one per CPU core), parallel processes the OCR job and merges the result. A crucial step is to turn on error logging in Acrobat preferences, parse all .log and reprocess any error files. The ...

This is not an Acrobat problem. Firefox 17 handles PDF files natively without using a plugin and by default PDF files now open in the Firefox PDF preview window. To change this, go to menu Tools -> Options, click on 'Applications' and scroll down to "Portable Document Format (PDF)" (that begins with 'P', so go way past the 'Acrobat ' files at the top)). ...

Since you have Adobe Acrobat, you can use the "typewriter" tool to insert or edit a textbox. Look at Add text using Add Or Edit Text Box (Typewriter tool)

Use the enterprise version and install it silently, like this. Acrobat can be installed the same way, they usually have 'enterprise' versions which don't come with the bloatware.

Go to Document → Examine Document. There you can press "remove" to delete the hidden information.
