Use Adobe InDesign, it's a program which is designed specifically to handle this (Among other things). It will let you name fields and buttons etc, adjust them in-program and export them as a fillable PDF directly etc. The only Form options it will not let you do is Java scripts and default text which could be quickly changed in Acrobat. InDesign is payware, ...

I would recommend GhostScript: gs -sDEVICE=jpeg -r300x300 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sOutputFile="image00.jpg" "input.pdf" r parameter is resolution gs -sDEVICE=jpeggray -r300x300 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sOutputFile="image00.jpg" "input.pdf" This one is for grayscale output.

First, remember that PDFs are a programming language unto themselves. I can draw first at the bottom of the page (or screen), then at the top, then overlay something. That said, we use pdftotext for this very task, with some massaging of the output after. You might also be able to load it in either Google Docs, or even LibreOffice has PDF converters. ...

Just use a command line tool like pdftk or the PDFbox java library to postprocess the pdf. Here's an example to encrypt the file 1.pdf using pdftk, allowing the user to print the file (from the pdftk Server examples): pdftk 1.pdf output 1.128.pdf owner_pw foo user_pw baz allow printing The Apache PDFBox library comes with some command line tools. ...

We can add some opensource program for dealing with images as gimp or imagemagick. The first, GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. Something like Photoshop but opensource. Huge program: you can use e.g. to create a pdf from ...

I checked all appdata and ProgramData folders, but the info is not stored there. I opened HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\RememberedViews There I found these folders - c1,c2,c3,...,c15 In them there were keys like ipageViewPageNum, ipageViewX, ipageViewY. I guessed that ipageViewPageNum is the page number at which it opens the document and Adobe ...

I know its too late but I just found a way better and simpler solution for this. Download and install from sourceforge "pdf split and merge" Drop all your files on it, and in the screen it generates a spreadsheet-like report on the number of pages and info of each. Select that, copy, paste into excel or opencalc, you got it.

As far as I can tell, there's no way to make PDF-XChange viewer do this. That's the bad news. The good news is that there are other viewers that will do it, including free-as-in-beer ones. I use Sumatra PDF on Windows and have been quite satisfied with it. Not only does it auto-refresh, it also keeps track of your view settings and position for all files, ...

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evince "Evince used to obey the DRM restrictions of PDF files, which may prevent copying, printing, or converting some PDF files, however this has been made optional, and turned off by default in gconf." A little googling led to this: http://archive.today/uKxXs "2007-07-04 at 04:38 Donald Hellen wrote: Does Evince ...

Sure, but it's a kludge. Select everything on a page, copy, paste, paste, print. Kludge 2 - print one sided, put output back in printer, print again. (I'll take a kludge that works until something better comes along, sometimes longer if it's not a painful kludge)

The pdfimages from poppler-utils extracts images from pdf files, it saves them as PBM for monochrome images and PPM for non-monochrome images but you can make it output jpg instead. If that does not suite you then you can use pdfimages -list to get a list of images and their information including resolutions.

By "enumerate paragraphs" I think you mean produce a new PDF file with numbers inserted before each paragraphs and the text reformatted to accommodate this and any other objects (e.g. images) moved around as needed and the document repaginated. PDF was intended as a final-format form of document so it doesn't really facilitate the further manipulation of ...

Nope you can't, i personally avoid doing this to not seeing this kind of boxes, you could use alternatives than Adobe Reader XI like Sumatra PDF Reader as i use or Nitro PDF.
