If you use convert instead of mogrify (part of the same suite), your command then becomes: find . -iname '*.jpg' -exec convert -format pdf '{}' new/'{}'.pdf \; Unlike mogrify, convert uses does not create an updated file extension, so you will get .jpg.pdf (plus capitalisation) as the new file extension, but that is easy to change with rename: find new ...

find . -iname '*.jpg' | while read f ; do new=`echo $f | sed -e 's/\.[Jj][Pp][Gg]$/.pdf/'`; newd=`dirname $f`; newd="new/$newd" mogrify -format pdf $f; mv $new $newd; done Of course, I recommend running the script echoing the mogrify and mv commands. If mogrify offers an output option, use that instead of the mv. You may find it ...

I prefer using command line tools such as ImageMagick for this type of work. You can install IM with Homebrew: brew install imagemagick Afterwards you can do convert *.jpg output.pdf and if the resulting PDF is a bit too big you can try: convert -quality 60 *.jpg output.pdf Of course ImageMagick also works on other Unix systems, and even on cygwin.

Comments can be hidden before printing. (On the Review tab, in the Tracking section, select Final.) Word 2010 also gives you a warning before saving or printing that a document contains comments, so that should prompt your user to double check to make sure comments are hidden.

It's nasty, but AFAIK the only way to do it without trying to control print/save/export functions with macros is like this. Put the following nested fields in your doument: { IF { PRINTDATE \@YYYYMMDDhhmm } <> { DATE \@YYYYMMDDhhmm } "your instructions" } where all the { } are the special field code brace pairs that you insert using ctrl-F9 on ...

If your PDF indeed is a multi-page document, your output file will not be named document.pnm. Instead, you will have multiple output files, one per PDF page. They will be named document-1.pnm, document-2.pnm, etc. Hence, your further processing has to take this into account... Finally, whenever you are preparted to convert your PNMs back to PDF, run this ...

I have found a possible solution on the forum of Adobe. Adobe forum link: How do I embed fonts in PDF? The 1st reply from (g_ballard) is the one you could try out.

Just had this happen on two Windows 7 Machines just after an Adobe Reader update a few days ago.

I don't know specifically for Acrobat, but many OCR programs are optimized for text in a "typical" sized body font at around 300 dpi. Start with that and try a page. If you get a lot of translation errors, try 600 dpi. If the page isn't clean, 600 dpi can make artifacts large enough to be interpreted as characters like punctuation marks, requiring more ...

I uploaded the PDF to this website and it seems like it was able to successfully recover the file. It did, however, put a watermark on it, and it wants payment if you need a version without the watermark. All the text is still perfectly readable though, even with the watermark. Here is the recovered file: ...

I would suggest the following: Copy text from your PDF into a text editor, for example Notepad++. Then, in Notepad++ you can do a search and replace to get rid of any formatting you dont need (i.e. linebreaks). Then copy your edited text from Notepad++ into Word and format to your liking. Hope this helps!

I looked at every setting as I had the same problem. This is what I found resolved the issue: Open Adobe Acrobat Reader and go to Edit/Preferences and change the pixel/inch ratio back to the standard. In Visio, go to Design tab, Size, and then More Page Sizes, and change the page size to Custom (your needed size.) (This opens Page Setup.) The printer paper ...

No, it is not possible for you to save the PDF by using “Save PDF” print option because it is a secured file. But you can try the follow three options, may work for you: If you are able to open the file, then copy all the content of the file and create your own pdf file. Install Foxit Reader and try opening the document and take a print from there. Or, ...

I assume that the source mentioned is indeed legitimate, otherwise I'd suggest to be very careful… It is possible to import a CSV file and load its contents, do some preprocessing, and loop through it to create documents you want to. It may require a little bit of understanding of PDF/Acrobat and programming with Acrobat JavaScript, but it is not thaat ...

Have a talk with PDF-Tools AG; they have industrial-strength converters (which you do need with this quantity of files to convert), and they also know what they are doing when creating PDF.

You do not need any software for that. You can just use your device email service to convert. Plus, I think Kindle email convert service is more successful than the Calibre in converting multi-column Pdf's. How to do: Just email one pfd file to your Kindle mail account -namesurname@kindle.com- (every kindle owner has such an email address given by Amazon, ...

The PDF format from its inception (more than 20 years ago) never was intended to be host of extractable, meaningfully structured data.

Only later in its ...

According to the PDF Spec there might be some things to help you. First of all there is the ID, a unique identifier that hould not be changed after initial creation.

This is a new security check, added to Adobe Reader. You can turn it off in the bValidateBytesBeforeHeader registry keys as shown in the link above. But, be careful - it is possible that the reason your PDF documents are failing the additional security check is because they've been tampered with or infected. This is more likely than you might expect, so be ...

In general no. In your specific case it might be possible, but you'd have to do significant work. In general I'm confident there's nothing in the PDF spec that mandates the presence of metadata indicating the primary language of the text in the PDF. Even if there was, there are so many different PDF-producing software applications that you can be sure some ...

I have partial solution to this, at least the Excel part. Since you know how to do it for a single document do it just once, do ALL of the formatting.

My method is similar to Marcus's, but works a little better for me when the images are all different sizes and you don't want the PDF to just be all 8.5x11 but to keep each page the size of the original image. Open the first image in Preview Show thumbnails (Command-option-2) Drag any additional images to the sidebar After this we diverge: Select all ...

Assuming you don't want to embed fonts, you'll need Inkscape, which is free.

You can now double click the object and change each letter individually. After you're ...

A very simple way to do it, if you are OK with a simple message would be creating a document-level JavaScript with the following code: app.alert("This form is fillable") ; If you want some eye candy, a still simple way would be to create the message in the layout program, save it as PDF, and then add a button field (read-only, no action) and make that PDF ...

The issue is already in the original document, in the way it has been created. It looks as if the original presentation has been created with PowerPoint (what else…) on Mac (well the presentation may have been created on Windows, and then brought to Mac to create the PDF). No OCR involved. The PDF creation occurred using the Apple tools, and it seems that ...

You can get to pdf from a number of types of source documents. If you start with something saved directly from a word processor, the pdf will contain nice, editable text. If you start with an image of a page, the pdf contains a picture, which is not editable without OCR. In between are typeset documents. They contain text, but everything is hard-formatted to ...

No, your browser never sees any of the vector stuff.
