Just copying .pdf files to the iPad will not do; the trick is to imitate Apple's ".plist" configuration files. If you are comfortable using python, here is a simple script that will do the job for you. Simply place your .pdf files in the Books/Managed folder (after you have connected to a computer) and then run the following in that directory. Once this ...

You could use the download property in your link (anchor) like so: <a href="some/path/somefile.pdf" download target="_blank">download PDF file</a> This would force download in the browsers, which support it (Chrome, Firefox and Opera). However, it is not currently supported in IE or Safari as per this link Source: ...

Print the page and select "Adobe PDF" as the printer. This will allow you print the page content in a readable format. You can also use the "Selection only" box to "print" only the content you want (see first screenshot below). To set a custom page size, click "Print using system dialogue," select "Adobe PDF," and click "Preferences." In the preferences ...

It can be done simply by instead of clicking on the PDF file, right-click on it and select "save link as" and then chrome will start downloading the PDF file and make sure to check the file-format before saving the link address, generally it would be .pdf but if not then manually write .pdf after it.

You actually don't have to bother with contents. All you need to do is cropping the page. Another possibility would be creating a custom paper format corresponding to A5 landscape (probably what the packaging label is about). You do that in the printer driver dialog, just ignoring the Acrobat complaint that you will leave now the Acrobat print dialog and ...

First and foremost, PDF is not a raster image per definition. It may have pages consisting only of raster files, such as scanned documents, but this is just one case of PDF. Per definition, PDF is a selection of various objects. Second, PDF can be edited to some extent, but for serious editing, you better go to the original files. In the Preferences, the ...

When it is a screenshot, then it is a screenshot, and that is a raster image. If you want more, adjust the screen and shoot again, or use a good raster image processing software to invent what was not part of the screen you shot.

You might use the WebCapture feature of Acrobat Pro, with appropriate settings (stay on same server, stay within branch, etc.).

No one in the history of commerce has been able to prevent dishonest businessmen. Or, for that matter, dishonest customers or governments. We (collectively) get by because most people are pretty honest (whether businessmen, customers, government reps, etc.) and we do after the fact penalties (that is, lawsuits) for the dishonest ones that are found. There ...

Visio can't work directly with PDF files. Either get a PDF file editor, or convert the PDF into DXF format (there are free converters available for that job), then import the DXF file into Visio.

Your drawing looks like a scanned picture actually (bitmap). It's not important if it is wrapped in PDF or whatever, the important part is that it is "just" a picture. First you'll probably need to vectorize it (so that it contains "shapes"). That is, Visio is a pure vector-graphic drawing tool. It does not have vectorization capabilities (conversion from ...

Since it is OK when you paste text only, most probably it is due to formatting. This is how word handles formatting - when you copy/paste from the other document you are copying the formatting too (it transfers all the formatting from the original document and adds it to the receiving document. I see 2 ways to fix this: Instead of copy/paste use Insert > ...

Since your PDF varies between machines, my first guess would be non-embedded fonts/CMap. If you don't embed your desired font in the file itself, the user's computer will attempt to represent the data using a font on that machine (all PDF-Compliant PDF readers should have the standard 14 fonts). PDF is a huge and flexible format, and Adobe products do a ...

The answer was simple - I put a blank space in each text box to hold the formatting. Sorry for the dumb question.

A rather late answer, but there is a sort-of workaround that doesn't involve editing PDFs or using a Word doc: Print out the PDF and put the page/s back in the printer Viewing the PDF in the Adobe Reader in Chrome, go Hamburger menu > Print ... and it should show as a blank page Select to add the URL header Print as many copies as there were pages in the ...

you must download Adobe reader and install it. Then you open Dragon and type chrome://plugins/ there you should see Adobe Reader - Version .... Click Enable below and also check Always allowed and that's it.

You need to add an export option to exclude tags. For example, add the following in-buffer setting: #+OPTIONS: tags:nil Or customize the variable org-export-with-tags.

Adobe Acrobat does that. Give it a URL, tell it to stay on the same server. There is a free trial if you don't want to spend the money, or if you just need to do it once. You can see a tutorial on how to do that here: http://www.ghacks.net/2008/04/12/convert-a-full-website-into-pdf/

You would create an Action, using the Action Wizard in Acrobat XI (Pro).

tl;dr? Start with Nuance OmniPage. I evaluated OCR software in Dec 2014 in prep for a big project - OCR on millions of English-language pages done in batches. If you're willing to spend a few hundred dollars you have many options; trial versions can get you thru if you only need to convert a few hundred pages. Many software packages want to load all the ...

I had some success in early 2015 doing fully hands-off batch OCR using Nuance OmniPage Ultimate on windows. Not free, list price $500. Use the batch program "DocuDirect" that is included. It has an option "Run job without any prompts" which seems the direct answer to your original question. I used DocuDirect to output one searchable PDF file for each ...

Use Chrome to view the PDF, hit print icon, set the page limit and save it as a new PDF (Option can be found under destination).

I have found 4 organizations, trusted by Adobe Acrobat so that the signatures will be considered "valid" in Acrobat Reader, Standard, or Pro, that sell these certificates. They are all expensive (typically $300/year). Note that Adobe has built things so that the person who signs a PDF document MUST use "two-factor authentication" at the time they sign the ...

Here is the solution for Word 2013. It involves only adding a Visual Basic macro to Word and few records to the registry. Create a global macro in Word 2013: open any document in Word, open the built-in Visual Basic editor (Alt + F11), select Normal in the left panel, click Insert in the main menu, then Module, and copy the code into the editor: Sub ...
