Everything they said was fine but when you close and open Adobe Reader again, it goes back to single page viewing and that's annoying. It's better to make it the default by doing this: Edit » Preferences » Accessibility » Always use Page Layout Style. Check Single Page Continuous. This helped me much more than having to keep switching it.

For Adobe Reader 9: Go to View » Page Display and check the option Single Page Continuous. For Adobe Reader X: Go to View » Page Display and check the option Enable Scrolling (this is only a one-time fix and will be reset the next time you open Adobe). If you want to make this the default behavior, do: Edit » Preferences » Accessibility » Always use ...

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

Only Adobe and Foxit (of those 5) have subpixel rendering. This is seen by zooming way in on the screenshot and seeing color fringing. This is because each pixel on an LCD display is made of 3 subpixels: red, green, and blue. These can provide extra resolution. Foxit maybe just doesn't have as good of a rendering method. Hinting could play a part.

I only know of open source solutions. For client-side stuff (which is what I assume you need), try PDFCreator. If you have a CUPS print server in the office, you could try the PDF plugin.

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. ...

PDF's (and its readers) are certainly not immune to attacks (one example here; googling for pdf vulnerability or pdf arbitrary code execution should yield more). In a *nix environment checking the file contents with file could be a start.

I'm sure you understand that this likely goes against EULA, etc. For information purposes, as posted here, quit all running CS4 applications and delete the file /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PCD/cache/cache.db. Then restart a CS4 application and enter your new serial number.

According to Adobe: Photoshop CS5 and CS4 leverage the video adapter's chip (the graphics processing unit, or GPU) instead of the computer's main chip (CPU) to speed some functions. Photoshop accesses and uses the GPU when the GPU: - supports OpenGL, a software and hardware standard that accelerates video processing when working with large or complex ...

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.

Adobe's activation servers keep track on how many active activations a serial number has; so both need an internet connection. Suspend Activation Deactivates the software but won't lose your serial number. It is useful if you want to temporarily use a copy of your license on an another machine. (Note that you could use the 30-day trial option too, if you ...

Well, I thought I'd found a better way, but it turns out that Word 2007's "Save as PDF" add-in creates unusual links in PDFs. It leaves out the borderWidth property entirely. Acrobat assumes that borderWidth defaults to 0, so the links look fine. Preview.app defaults borderWidth to 1, so the links have a black box. Unfortunately, Acrobat Pro 9 for Mac ...

Currently there is no version of Adobe Flash Player for 64-bit browsers. There is a pre-release version but I don't think it's really production-ready. The only solution at the moment is to use the 32-bit version of IE8 which is also included in 64-bit versions of Windows. Adobe has also a Technote discussing this topic: Flash Player support on 64-bit ...

Flash (at least, until recently) typically does not support simple forms of hardware acceleration, which means that all of its calculations (graphical and otherwise) are done entirely through the device's CPU. Without anything else offsetting the work, this means that the main CPU (one of the most power hungry devices) will constantly be running at high ...

There are many ways to do this, as there are many selection tools and ways of making selections. But if you are using the Marquee tools, you can use the SHIFT, ALT and CTRL keys (Option and Command on the Mac) to change the behaviour of the tools (and any other for that matter). I cannot remember which one is which at the moment, but one will put a minus ...

You need to enable scrolling. In Adobe Reader X, there might be a button for this on the toolbar. If it's not there, you can choose to show the button by right clicking on the toolbar and selecting Enable Scrolling from the Page Display option. You can make this the default view from Edit > Preferences... > Page Display > Page Layout. Set this to Single ...

What you're experiencing is the most easily perceived difference between vector and raster images. While the former describes shapes in an abstract way, the latter deal with images as a collection of rectangular dots, called pixels. You can surely export the images in a larger resolution which raises the quality at the expense of file size. But if you want ...

If your skills, or your company's area of expertise, include a significant involvement of Adobe products then such a certificate may be a useful differentiator between yourself and the have-nots when bidding for relevant work. If you don't use Adobe products beyond having Acrobat Reader and Flash installed, or perhaps a little Flash work for web sites, then ...

It seems this is a bug in Firefox that is over 8 years old without an easy fix, judging by the comments. There is an experimental add-on you may want to try called Restore Window Focus After Flash, but that is just one user's perspective on which hotkeys should work within flash, and how it should operate - it may work out well for you though.There are many ...

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 ...

Yes, there was Version Cue. Version Cue enables users to track and manipulate file versions and metadata. Users can see previews of older versions and can restore or delete versions at any time. It integrates with Adobe Bridge. Note that – as far as I am concerned – it does not have "layer" specific version control. The only drawback anyway ...

LibreOffice will let you create PDF forms. http://www.libreoffice.org/download/ When exporting, go to "Export as PDF..." and make sure you tick "Create PDF form". If you are changing an existing PDF, then you can do that through the PDF import extension/plugin (that's now already included with the latest download).

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