### Save to pdf when it's not "permitted"?

• Email
• Follow

Hello folks!

Sometimes I receive documents I'd like to save as PDFs from the print
dialog, but the dialog won't let me. It wouldn't even allow a preview.
This is really annoying.
Is there a way around this, maybe a "fake" printer driver?

Another way is simply to print to file. (the option in OS-X isn't as
obvious, but it is still there).

You generate a .PS file which has any PDF restrictions removed (but also
PDF attrubtes, bookmarks, links etc). And then you can use preview to
convert the .PS to .PDF file.

Just don't try printing directly to pdf; in some cases part or all of
the file will not print. We tripped over that this past weekend.

not permitted template types
I am looking for a way to specify this for a class template: <T1 and T2 template parameters only are permitted with this class template> I would like then a compiler to report explicitly about an attempt to use a not permitted type. It would've been useful in our code where we have some templated facade classes to the variety of underlying types. The facade template adds extra functionality to the underlying types and the set of underlying types is restricted. If achievable it would be more convenient/expressive than the coming concept specification feature (http://microsoft.sitest...

minipage
I have been using minipage for some time and all is well. Now that I have upgraded latex it will not allow spaces within a minipage. This poses a problem for me because the latex file is created by an automated script. If I take out the spaces or insert the "\" then it will cause other problems - sometimes I enclose the same text within a verbatim - and in that case I need the spaces - and don't want "\" characters inserted everywhere. won't work... --------------------- \emph{\begin{minipage}{4.5in}\ \end{minipage}}&&&\\ --------------------- Latex w...

su setgid: Operation not permitted
Hi all, As I wanted to give 0777 permission for /home/test directory, I want to execute "chmod -R 0777 /home/test", but I mistakenly executed "chmod -R 0777 /". Due to this entire file system permission got changed to 0777. Now I am not able to execute su, which gives me error as "setgid: Operation not permitted". It seems to be I have created a serious problem. Can anyone please help me to solve this problem?

Can't use is with ?permitted
I have a very very strange problem, indeed. I have a Netra 1405 that currently has 2 GB of RAM running solaris 8. It runs without any issues. At one time we had 4 GB of RAM in this server, but started having problems with persistent memory errors, reboots and such. We took out 2GB of RAM, and the reboots stopped. I have worked with the vendor on multiple occassions to get replacement RAM. I've taken the server offline, and put in the replacement RAM, and on all occassions when I boost the server back up to 4 GB I get the following error constantly repeated even before ...
