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 ...

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.

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.

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.

To be able to edit a Adobe Form in Adobe Acrobat (not Reader) you need to open it first in LiveCycle, and save it as a "static Adobe Form". Next you need to use a public domain toolkit for Adobe forms (Download PDFTK http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/) and install it. The for each form (or one form) you need to convert it to remove XML ...

I'm 99% sure PDF's like these are assembled as portfolios of multiple standalone pdfs in Adobe Acrobat.

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 ...

I did not want to upload my pdf to a dodgy site and wait in queue, so instead I spend some time googling. I found this free open source utility. I ran it on the file like thist qpdf --decrypt input.pdf output.pdf And the restrictions were removed. Note that the original pdf was not password protected.

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.

It either stores that information somewhere on your disk (slightly misnamed .DS_Store files - to appear inconspicuous - have been used for this), or could even report some hardware information (e.g. MAC address) to the manufacturer if there's an internet connection during trial installation (or both). That way, the installer can determine that the same ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Go to Edit > Preferences (Ctrl + K) and select the General category. Uncheck show me messages when I launch Reader And that should be it.

That should be it, and yet I still get the bubble that says: Click on Tools to convert PDF documents to Word or Excel. I found the answer here and I quote: "If you scroll to the top right of this box, you should see a cross button. Once you click that, you should not see the message again." That was it.

I was also trying to bypass PDF permission password security. I have received this file from my client and he said he forgot the password. I did a quick Google search and found the website PDFUnlock but I didn’t upload the PDF file there because this PDF file is pretty confidential and this PDFUnlock website looks quite phishy. I mean in the header area ...

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 ...

I fixed it. Apparently, in my Display Settings under Advanced, I had a different color profile set up, and so the one set in the Adobe programs and the one set on my monitor were clashing. When I set them to the same thing, everything worked.
