It turned out that I wasn't using the most up-to-date version. Downloading the newest fixes the issue: http://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads

Yes, you are right. Reading PDFs on Macs are slow on Adobe Reader and Chrome. I don't think there's a direct solution. You can also try another PDF reader called Skim, which has more features and capabilities than Preview. It's as smooth as Preview too!

Any PDF file can contain DRM (digital right management) feature: in other words a feature that disable copy-paste. You can find tons of software that does that, there are also few websites that propose to do it online without downloading a software (i.e online-pdf-nocopy.com)

If you are using Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can change this. View the page thumbnails for your document. You can right-click one of the thumbnails and then click "Number Pages...". This opens a dialog box where you can change the page numbering.

A bit late in the game, here's how I solved it. Use --latex-engine=xelatex for default UTF-8 everywhere. Use fonts with the required glyphs. The command line which works for me is pandoc --latex-engine=xelatex -V mainfont:"Linux Libertine O" -V monofont="Ubuntu" -o out.pdf in.md I have yet to discover a suitable monofont which supports Cyrillic which ...

Remove the semitransparency in Word. Word 2013: Design tab > Watermark > Custom Watermark > uncheck Semitransparent. Worked for me!

I'm glad you asked. Your question led me to re-examine this issue and I found out that I had extracted 100 pages from a 1000+ page PDF, using Acrobat Pro, as a test case, however that did not include the TOC bookmarks as I had assumed and that was the problem. So I opened the original large PDF in Acrobat Pro and deleted all but the first 100 pages and ...

Today I was contacted by GlobalSign with a much better explanation, which I think answers this question: So our PersonalSign product can be used to sign documents like Word Documents, Excel, Open/LibreOffice files, and even PDFs.

A solution which is a bit manual but does not require installing anything or using any third-party services: Copy-paste the text from browser to LibreOffice Writer, then choose File - Export as PDF. If you copy carefully you can even avoid copying the header, footer and other elements you don't need. Easy! :)

I use the Firefox add-in Web2PDF for that purpose if the web page is generally clean. If there is a lot of stuff I don't want to include, I use another add-on, Print Edit, which lets you delete anything you don't want printed. EDIT: I always just use the Add-on Manager; search on the name or function. However, based on the comment, I noticed external ...

If you were on Google Chrome, I would say that you can use Print option in menu and choose "Save as PDF" as your printer. But for now, you can use PrintFriendly web site to easily convert your online web page to a PDF file. http://www.printfriendly.com Edit: There is also another way: You can save the web page as an HTML file, edit with a WYSIWYG editor ...

It depends on how the objects are organized inside the PDF. Sometimes for Acrobat XI, you can first try: Tools, Content, Edit Object.

PDFs can be created in a variety of ways. If the PDF was created via a scanner, it may or may not have gone through an OCR (optical character recognition). If OCR was performed, you would have a text layer that somewhat corresponds to the layout of the graphical layer (what you normally see). The text accuracy of OCR is rarely 100%. If you printed to PDF ...

Highlight the bookmark, right click, properties, actions tab, highlight "go to a page" in the actions window, click edit button just below window, change zoom to inherit zoom. Hit OK, OK. Downside is that you have to do this individually for each bookmark.

I ran into this same problem, and as noted by OP in his comments, using the Microsoft "Save as PDF" option in Word 2007/2010 is the only solution that actually works. I confirmed this with personal experience (in Word 2007 and CutePDF). Trying another PDF converter changed absolutely nothing. Editing the image to have a white background and reinserting it ...

First I have to assure you that it matters what browser you are using. Unless you are using standard OS print dialog, browser will use its own library to create PDF. Results will vary between different browsers. Just as experiment I have printed this page using Firefox and Chromium. Firefox did not save any clickable links. Chromium saved about 50% and the ...

I don't know what application you are trying to use (and I can't comment to clarify due to lack of reputation) to open the PDF form but if you are not using Adobe Reader, maybe you can try it out. User "hanzj" over the Ubuntu forums gave a link to the PDF he had similar problems with (same error message) and user "kimberlite" claims to have been able to ...

Yes there is. Try using the Adobe PDF Printer. Then you can name it however you want and select the directory to save to.

This did not work for me. Yes it reduced the size by half but with unacceptable pixellated fonts and no more bookmarks TOC, as with every other output setting I tried with gs, i.e., screen and printer. Thanks anyway…

You can use Adobe Reader to find text in multiple PDFs: The Search window enables you to look for search terms in multiple PDFs. For example, you can search across all PDFs in a specific location or all files in an open PDF Portfolio. Open Acrobat on your desktop (not in a web browser). Do one of the following. In the Find toolbar, ...

Gscan2pdf is what worked for me, but the settings were initially confusing. Selecting "all" pages leaves no apparent way to stop the scanning process and seems designed for an automatic document feeder. There is no need to pre-count the pages. Set it at 1 and it will scan and stop. When the next page is ready, press scan again. All of the scanned ...

In an active project, we use git to do the distribution and version control. Some of the files are PDF, and it works quite well. As it has been said, there is no way to do deltas. One possibility, however, which might work with deltas, would be exporting the comments, which come out as FDF, and then do the version control with these export files. FDF may, ...

I don't know of any native versioning with PDF files (nor does my Google search). PDF files (according to wikipedia) are binary. Delta storage only works with text files (like source code files and readme files). I have a background in using SVN and Git. I recommend using Git, as it has superior compression capabilities and is a distributed version ...

If you turn on the "Edit Text & Images" in the "Tools" panel in Adobe Acrobat, you should be able to select text inside highlighted region and right-click to do cut/copy/paste. I just tried on my laptop using Acrobat 11.0. Hope this can solve your problem. Not sure if Adobe Reader can do the same.

I have seen this problem many times. When you try to save it in word using adobe pdf or save as pdf file, sometimes, random bold text, or junk appears in the created PDF file. The way that always has worked for me is to print is as Adobe pdf. It works perfect for me. Use the printing option. hopefully this will work for you too, Have a good day,

I am using Preview Version 7.0 (826.4) and I can set the Font color: Go to -->"Tools" + "Annotate" + Click on "Text". When the Text Box is open for entering text, click on the color icon (next to the Font selector): Hint on where to find it: below the File Name, you should see a set of about 8 edit icons and next to those you should see the color selector ...

lzma compression is the best because you can make an sfx file or an msi package with a high compression ratio. in your case you are not compressing a big file so the diffrence is quite small especially if the file has been compressed such as: mp3 or png try win arc it is free and gives a gret compression ratio

I'm using version adobe acrobat professional v10. Just thought of another option... you can use any 3rd party pdf creator that should be available for free download to achieve the same thing.

Not sure if this is a option you would consider... If you have a adobe version that lets you make make pdfs then you can print those pages you require to the adobe virtual printer and make a new pdf of the pages you require.

The setting your "experts" are "unaware of" is called Filter, its a pretty standard way of defining file-extensions which are selectable or even preselected.

What you're looking for is, depending on whether your Ebook is extracted from 'Pure Text' to the Flash Player or from a 'Series of Images', really hard or 'trying to lick your elbow' hard.
