Missing links warning means that your document is terminally broken for printing. You should never, ever, send anything to print with this warning. What you need to do is relink the originals, that is if you still have them around. What has happened is that the original files are missing. InDesign thus only has thumbnails for those images. Since InDesign ...

You can use this online converter - online2pdf. Or if you have access to a Windows 8 machine, you can convert the file to pdf(or xps) using a pdf printer. Also, MuPDF on linux can open a .oxps file(only for viewing though).

The file might have embedded fonts that you do not have installed on your PC, so they look correct in the PDF but not when displayed in another application. You can determine what fonts are in the file either by searching the PDF with a text editor or, if you have Adobe Acrobat, using these directions copied from Deep Blue Sky. Once you have the font name, ...

This issue occurs because you must open another instance of the program to preview the document. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\DetailsContainer] "DetailsContainer"=hex:02,00,00,00,01,00,00,00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer] ...

While Inkscape is an awesome way to do it, for those lacking X11, you can also extract individual pages of a PDF into SVG format using the poppler-utils at the command line. For example, to extract just page 30: $ pdftocairo -f 30 -l 30 -svg somehugemanual.pdf myextractedpage.svg You can then use your favorite vector editor (mine is Inkscape) to isolate ...

Find Adobe Reader, and press "OK"(If there is no Adobe Reader in the list, press "Browse" and find "exe" file of Adobe Reader in directory you have ...

If you have Acrobat, click your cursor so the cursor is blinking in the text. (It won't work if you don't do that.) Go to Advanced, Accessibility, Add tags. It will take a few minutes if you have a large document, but much faster than manually removing breaks. Voila!

Another alternative is to convert to images via something like pdfimages From man page, "Pdfimages saves images from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file as Portable Pixmap (PPM), Portable Bitmap (PBM), or JPEG files. Pdfimages reads the PDF file PDF-file, scans one or more pages, and writes one PPM, PBM, or JPEG file for each image, ...

Another option is to simply let CutePDF do it's work. Then use Adobe Acrobat and/or pdftk do a periodic (manual or automated, up to you) job every once in a while of rounding everything up to a single file? https://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/ https://www.pdflabs.com/docs/pdftk-cli-examples/

Wouldn't GIMP (GIMP looks at a PDF as though it's just a bunch of image files) or Adobe Acrobat allow you to do all of this in one hit (if I'm reading this correctly)? http://www.gimp.org/ As for the duplex printing thing you can replicate it with a standard printer if you the way in which the printer works (do a test print to determine orientation)... ...

I experienced a similar problem: when I converted some word documents to PDF for reading on my ereader, random parts of the text showed up in bold. I found that changing the font (Calibri) of the entire word document - to Arial, in this case - before converting to PDF solved this problem completely. I realize my problem wasn't identical to the one discussed ...

You can use ImageMagick for this. It has an overwhelming amount of options, but if you dive into it you'll see that it's easy to pick up. Check an overview of all commandline options here. For your question, I used the following options: -compress jpeg: to convert the pdf fragments to jpeg before putting them in the new document. I think you can also leave ...

Have you tried Calibre? The contributor to Calibre mentions that OCR'd text in djvu is supported. So it could probably be converted to PDF with searchable text.

You could use a DTP Program to achieve this result. Create a new Document in the desired final size and place, crop the PDF files in this document. Then export this file as a new PDF. Free Software Scribus or proprietary Adobe InDesign are available for this task.

I'm adding this as an alternative 'answer' rather than a comment to give myself a little more space... I've been 'fighting' (or so it has felt) with the conversion of some Word files containing a company logo to PDF. My findings may be helpful to anyone with similar problems. As billc.cn states, Word can accept EMF and EPS files. However, I found that when ...

Holding down the Alt key should allow you to select a column of text. (Note: I've only tested this with Acrobat Pro, not Acrobat Reader.)

You can use the Microsoft word "Convert to table" function outlined here. It's not exactly what you need but at least it is quicker.

Edit - Preferences - Commenting - "Automatically open comment pop-ups for comments other than notes" and "Copy selected text..." checkboxes will fix this. Or use Acrobat Reader!

No, to my knowledge there is no built-in way to do such a thing. But, you could easily try to use the REST API to query the trackers and extract artifacts; this way you could then build your own documents. Or you can also contribute such a feature, it would be a pleasure :)

My recollection from reading the PDF specs long ago was that readers are expected to abide by password restrictions but the specs provided enough information to let them ignore it. PPT passwords are similar to PDF ... there's a bit of data in the file that tells the PowerPoint app "Ask the user for a password before opening this file." The data in the file ...

If you cannot read it without providing a password, then it's encrypted. (That said, earlier Office and Acrobat versions used to have really weak algorithms. Modern versions tend to use AES.) If you can read it without a password, but must provide a password to modify, then the file is merely locked. Depending on the format, it might be enough to just flip ...

Both the cover.jpg and metadata.opf files are generated by Calibre to preview the cover and metadata of the book. Calibre generates those files from embedded information in the .azw3 file. So the two files are useless if you're giving the book to a friend or saving it in a separate folder from the one Calibre uses to read the book. However, be cautious not ...

If you want an exhaustive list of possibilities, note that OpenOffice/LibreOffice implement this feature, but the result quality is somewhere between ghostscript and ImageMagick in your list above. And there are more fundamental problems. Read on. The principle is that the application opens PDF files as "Draw" documents, which can then be manipulated and ...

With PDF Combine you can merge as many PDF files as you like and combines files by folders or common name part. There is a YouTube video that explains how program works. (I'm not in any way affiliated wit this program!) Hope it helps! :)

Did some experiments, and seems to me that LibreOffice will always put your graphics on your page format (and I'm not sure that this is a wrong choice, anyways). But I found that if you use File → Export as PDF you can check Selectionin Range section to make it export only selected elements, however it will always put them on your original page format. But ...
