I know I'm waaaay too late, but somebody looking for a solution might find this useful. Based on @terdon's answer, I have created a BASH script that does the job: https://github.com/eljuanchosf/source-code-to-pdf

Sejda allows compressing PDF files and adding an additional page (by merging the original document with a new page). If you have the new page as a scanned image, you can convert the image to a pdf document. All these operations can be done online or offline. If you'd prefer to work locally on your computer, there is a Sejda Desktop application available.

You do not want to convert the ost file to pdf. You want to convert the contents of emails in those temporarily cached emails (.ost) to PDFs. Possibly with or without their headers. That means using a outlook (or anything which understands ost, which as far as I know is only outlook), connecting to your exchange mail server; only then are you able to ...

In terms of functionality that is specific to ebooks PDF, epub and mobi are all about the same. PDF readers are installed on more computers than ebook readers that support other formats. PDF files are about twice as large as either epub or mobi files, so they take about twice as much space on an ebook reader device. Even so, epub and mobi ebooks can have the ...

Removing the extra bar between the menu bar and the toolbar: Go to Preferences - General, and uncheck the option "Open documents as new tabs in the same window (requires restart)". Restart the software and enjoy the view with no tabs on the window. Tested with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2015.016.20045, which is the current latest version.

Click on it with mouse right button and select "Copy as cURL (cmd)". Open command line and paste clipboard. It should look something like this: curl "someurl" -H "Pragma: no-cache" ........

What most likely happened is that you did download a (IMHO horrendously crappy) install manager instead of the actual installer. Adobe believes that this is better for individuals… However, it is possible to get the actual installer from the Enterprise section of the Adobe website. And you can get all older versions of Reader from the Adobe FTP server.

If anyone else is also looking for an answer: I now tried to do it with podofoimpose (which is a part of the podofo-tools). My plan is: inch = 72 mm = inch / 25.4 smallWidth = 99 * mm largeWidth = 101.5 * mm PageHeight = 215.5 * mm PageWidth = 302 * mm if(PageCount == 6) then i = 1 newPage = 1 while newPage <= 2 do x = 0 ...

It mostly depends on how compliant the PDF reader is. Many of the Linux PDF readers don't honor all the restrictions that can be enabled with pdftk or qpdf. You should test your resulting PDF files with Adobe Reader in Windows. You may be thinking what is the point of PDF protection if the protection can be worked-around, and you'd be right there isn't ...

There are various ways this can be done. For instance, you can muck with the registry using standard registry-editing tools. However, there is also a way to affect this using the command line. As that is likely easier for automation, that is a good way to demonstrate this. Since your question showed up a made up extension of .abc, I use that. From a ...

I haven't figured out what was the reason for this, but what helped is having a white background behind my objects, not transparent.

It depends on the PostScript code. One could write a 3D rendering algorithm in PostScript and use embedded AutoCAD files as pictures. It will take much time to render while PDF will contain prerasterized images. In some cases PostScript will be much faster to render. Unfortunately most popular publishing software emits very inefficient PostScript code. But ...

I'd just set the margins by means of LaTeX and acquired what I wanted by choosing right values for offset: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{pdfpages} \usepackage{geometry} \geometry{a4paper, total={297mm, 210mm}} \setboolean{@twoside}{false} \begin{document} \includepdf[pages=-, offset=-10 -10]{fff.pdf} \end{document}

Foxit Reader does not allow later editing of PDFs, therefore it does not support adding an additional page. You can use Foxit PDF editor to do that, or another free PDF editor. As for the size, there are a lot of tools that can compress a pdf to acceptable size; some you can use directly online: http://www.ilovepdf.com/compress_pdf

It seems that this is related to the setting "Enable Projected Mode at Startup" in Edit > Preferences > Security (Enhanced). Disabling it will allow to just save a file with CTRL+S. As pointed out in this post on Stackoverflow.

"(Windows) Explorer" gives a key. Can we assume that the preview function of Windows Explorer is on? If so, you also should get an according error message, stating that saving is not possible because the document is open by another application. And that other application is Windows Explorer when the preview function is on. Deactivate that preview ...

On windows 10, the registry hack doesn't work, and neither does the Group Policy Editor, because neither of them exist. But I found a solution here. It involves going into your internet explorer settings (even if you don't use internet explorer). Click on the "Security" tab, then "Custom Level", then scroll down to "Launching applications and unsafe files", ...

Dimensions are converted to pixels for output in HTML-like formats. Use the --dpi option to specify the number of pixels per inch. The default is 96dpi. Find the most common element in your pictures and use ...

I know I'm late on this thread, but none of the things above helped me out, but I did find a solution to the proposed problem. Since my Adobe would not launch from the desktop, or the .exe in program files, I found a known good computer with the same Adobe and copied the Adobe files from that computer and replaced it with the broken PC adobe files. Adobe ...

I am currently experiencing the same issue and the ONLY workaround I've come up with after a couple of hours is to place a text character before and after my image, then insert my hyperlink, then make the text transparent. Lame, but I'm in a pinch!

AT this point, a PDF dialog Box appears. Click "Options" and then click "Selection" ...

I had the same problem with Word 2007: when saving as PDF, the hyperlinks on images were not working. I discovered that this problem appeared only for images inserted via drag&drop. I tried inserting the same images using insert -> image, then added the web link to the image, then saved to PDF. Everithing worked fine this way. Hope this can help.

I recommend flpsed: http://flpsed.org/flpsed.html It is simple and lightweight, and it always satisfies my typing-on-PDF needs. The one drawback is that there is no feature to insert an image. It does one thing (adding text) and does it well.
