Its an old thread but I just stumbled on the same problem and didn't want to install anything additional so I suggest this: (building on what nmat says above and the comment of slhck) If you want to reduce margins then in the PDF reader you could "Print to PDF" with scaling to 110% and then print the new PDF it the way you want on paper (single or both ...

I noticed that there were lots of good suggestions for how to fix this printing issue, but I thought it might be interesting and useful to post an explanation of the underlying cause. It appears that these PDF misprints are due to a character encoding problem. All the ASCII characters are showing up as 1 higher than they should be (see ASCII character ...

To "glue" e.g. an A4 PDF file to fit multiple pages on a single, huge page, you could use David Firsth's great PDFjam tool. It's usually included in most Linux distributions. With Linux Mint, e.g., install the texlive-extra-utils package to have PDFjam available. With PDFjam installed, you can transform a PDF containing 9 A4 PDF pages (A4: 21x29.7 cm) using ...

If you still have the raw data (spreadsheet) available, using LibreOffice, you could just modify the page properties, and tell LO Calc to print the sheet on one huge, custom-sized page. You'll have to switch between the page properties and the "Page Break" view to check if the page size is big enough for your sheet's data area. To adjust the appropriate ...

Solution to my specific problem: Per @Ouroborus answer.... I didn't have Google Desktop installed, so that wasn't it Deleted all sub-folders under C:\WINDOWS\Temp When the file downloaded, I chose Open, and right clicked, to "Run as Administrator" (per @Burgi) Sounds like it was either #2 or #3 that solved it. Or a combination of both.

Select the lines you want to merge. Open the Replace dialog (click CTRL+H). In the "Find what" field type ^p to find paragraph end marks. In the "Replace with" field type a single space, assuming you want to separate the last word of every paragraph from the first word of the next one. Your example shows some "wordword" examples, so if this was intentional ...

Cut/paste and custom parsing You manually open documents and copy the contents as text into some other program, which could be Excel.

Nevertheless of the comment about own research, in the context of PDF, "flattening" has several meanings. In general, what it does is consolidate everything into the imaging level, creating a simple PDF. Main meanings of "flattening": • In the context of forms and annotations in general: Rendering the annotations and/or form fields according to their ...

www.pdfsam.org : open source, cross-platform tool that allows to rotate, split, merge and otherwise manipulate PDF documents. This is a must-have tool, in my opinion, if you are doing things like insurance claims, or other document handling tasks. I used this because the other solutions (above) didn't work for me in my firewall-limited environment (we're ...

I don't know if you still need this answered, but I had this exact issue and I fixed it by removing the "--" after "mupdf" (so it's in the same form as the line for llpp). This might be system-specific because it works fine on another computer (with a different distro) where the config has the "--".

I can't seem to find how to do this either, but there are many bookmark options in Advanced>Bookmarks. All of these are only available in Pro, however. If I find a way to do this in the free version, then I'll post it here. EDIT: Found it. You can click and drag a comment to make it a sub-bookmark under a previous comment. EDIT2: It's hard to show a click ...

I found a way around this problem. I did tools -> edit document text, then for each page, I hit Control-A (select all), then right-clicked and went to properties, and changed the font to something else. After I did this, the text was searchable and I could copy the text!

The only tool that I find really satisfactory at this job (as well as many other tricky PDF manipulations) is k2pdfopt. To trim (or rather "crop" in k2pdfopt's lingo) a PDF file, f.i. starting 1cm from the upper-left corner and expanding to a width of 10cm and a height of 20cm, just call it like this: $ k2pdfopt -ui- -x -mode crop -cbox ...
