Acrobat reader greys out the Copy To Clipboard option when you Select

You need to remove protection from the document. Use Elcomsoft's :

you will probably need to get a serial number for whatever version is
current perhaps a search engine will turn one up for you ;-> or maybe

For anyone struggling to figure out how to create a PDF in SWX it's pretty simple but you may have to have the Bluebeam version of swx FIRST go to Tools>Options and check "Save as PDF" Then you can save them right from the save as dialog. Maybe I'm the only dumbass that could't figure that out! ;0) But it was in help under "PDF" An easier way is to download a program from www.pdf995.com that "prints" you files to a PDF foramat.

pdf to doc?
Our busness needs to convert pdf files to doc format. What is the best program to do this? We are willing to pay more for the best program. Thanks. -Pete Pete wrote: > Our busness needs to convert pdf files to doc format. What is the best > program to do this? We are willing to pay more for the best program. Thanks. > -Pete Pete, Programs like Finereader from Abbyy do a decent job. But if you want formattings and top flight accuracy you will need manual intervention. For eg., when converted the word 'adventure' may sometimes come up as 'adv enture' or you will at times find no space between words. Line breaks may not be consistent either. Give it a try. Ofcourse, you can send me a mail at rmanian AT gmail DOT com if you want to set up a deal with me to do this work for you on a regular basis. Regards, Ravi Hi Pete, ABBYY have now released PDF-Transformer 2.0 this month and it is very very good! www.pdftransformer.com I have to declare an interest here though as we provide the return back to PDF from any Windows app if required in Transformer as ABBYY have licensed our PDF-XChange product to bundle within Transformer. -- Best Regards John

Placing PDF
I have been experimenting with placing PDF files in our publication and it seems to work well - in test cases to the press and, would certainly reduce frustration and errors when building our publication - we could actually be *done* with a component instead of reworking them as we cut-and-paste due to human error or the "bumping" effect making text shades close or shrink. Also, the quality of images and text is better than rasterizing -> tiff prior to placement. I am new here and historically, everything (images/pdfs) have been converted to tiff before placement even though quality suffers. My co-workers say they have been told to place only tiff (reason unknown) Finally, my questions: Are we operating on myth? superstition? Or, are their some valid reasons to create rasterization noise in photoshop? What are the risks involved? thanks for your input, M "Mike Figley" <mfigley@ak.net> wrote in message news:1034o1negaiqk2a@corp.supernews.com... > I have been experimenting with placing PDF files in our > publication and it seems to work well - in test cases to the press > and, would certainly reduce frustration and errors when

PDF convertor
Hello everybody, I was set a problem to figure out how to convert PDF documents to another proprietary vector format. The main rub I've struck against is how to extract text content (with all metrics and position) and corresponding font information from PDF file. The most convenient way of solving this problem I think is to find any intermediate file format to convert PDF to instead of parsing raw pdf stream. Does anybody know any suitable and simple file formats (XML or smth. else) I could convert PDF to using stable software ( may be from Adobe, it's desirable of course ) and what kind of software it could be ?

PDF and colour
I have been getting on fine with a dvi output using the color package, and names such as RoyalBlue, BrickRed and OliveGreen. No luck with PDF though. I have tried putting \usepackage[pdftex]{color} to no avail. The color cyan seems to work still. I have used sample text from the documentation (pdf so it must be possible), which all output as black when I run it through. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[dvips]{color} \usepackage{multicol} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \renewcommand*{\DefineNamedColor}[4]{% \textcolor[named]{#2}{\rule{7mm}{7mm}}\quad \texttt{#2}\strut\\} \begin{center}\Large Named colours in \texttt{dvipsnam.def} \end{center} \begin{multicols}{3} \input{dvipsnam.def} \end{multicols} \end{document} also, if i have \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}, does that mean the color package line is redundant? hwibbles@googlemail.com schrieb: > I have been getting on fine with a dvi output using the color package, > and names such as RoyalBlue, BrickRed and OliveGreen.

PDF Desperate
Alright I've spent like 2 weeks researching, testing, downloading demos etc of PDF creators and I can't find what my boss wants! These are the things I need: 1.) This is for a web ASP.net (w/ VB.NET) application. Generating PDFs on the fly. 2.) Ability to have a background image 3.) Ability to place text in exact coordinate positions 4.) Ability to *Automatically Open (w/out a dialog box. Either in Reader or in a new browser window) *Automatically Print (prefer to show the print dialogue box) *After printing, automatically close 2 & 3 seem to be standard with MOST PDF Creators. 4 is the hard one. I can do automatic open and print. Closing ... I have no luck with. Dynamic PDF is the closest I have come. It opens the PDF (however in the same window which I need to get around), and will automatically print. But not close. I am staying away from .JS files because then every user would need to have that file. Any suggestions!?!?! The closing part just might not be possible. Thanks for any advice. I'm so sick of PDF stuff at this point!!! mianiro wrote: > seem to be standard with MOST PDF Creators. Most of it can be done

PDF Bluebook?!
Hello, for Postscript there is a Bloobook with many examples, explaining a lot of stuff very good. But for PDF I only have found the PDF-Reference. Is there no PDF-Bluebook available? Would be nice if there is such a book. My simple (?) question: How to generate a simple document with a certain font's symbols? I want to generate pdf's with latin charaters (e.g. TimesRoman-font) and the same document should include japanese fonts (hiragana, katakana, kanji). Can TrueTypeFonts be included/loaded into pdf-documents? Are there Postscript/PDF fonts for these japanese symbols? How to create such a document?

PDF isn't a programming language like PostScript, so there is less use for such a thing, but if you feel it would be useful....

pdf to text
I am looking for a way to convert PDF files into text content. I don't care about layout or formatting, just the plain text that I can use to search against in a database. I've look into the pdftotext tool from: http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html However, when I use it via the command line, it works fine. If I issue the same command via a system() call, there are major problems that cause the server to crash. (Don't know why, there aren't any error messages been generated anywhere.) I am looking to use this when a PDF file is uploaded via a form and store the text in a database for a search function. TIA -- Justin Justin Koivisto wrote: > > I am looking for a way to convert PDF files into text content. I vaguely remember using Ghostscript for that... Cheers, NC I have not used pdftotext via system(). However you could try different versions of pdftotext. In my experience the version you use can have quite different effects. Different versions should be easily available. It's also possible to use ascii2txt, which depends on Ghostscript I think. When I tried it I got into a muddle of versions though, and pdftotext was much easier

saving as PDF
I have 10.4.11. I have three text documents using the same four fonts and sizes and formatted the same with no graphics. With Apple's Print command, I made PDFs. The 8,000-word document made a 140kB PDF. The 10,000-word document made a 200kB PDF. The 13,000-word document made a 124kB PDF. Why didn't the PDF size correlate to the document length? I added a 100-word paragraph to the 10,000-word document. Instead of increasing to 202kB, the PDF size increased to 440kB. What determines the size of a PDF made through Apple's Print command?

.doc to .pdf
Hi there I would like to ask you if you know how to convert a .doc file into a .pdf file (without using a tool but how to actually do it); I want to create my own software to do this.

If you aren't prepared to use existing software, one approach is as follows: 1. Reverse engineer the DOC format to understand what contents are there. You may be able to find the results of some research on the web, but this is likely to be a major project. 2. The PDF specification is publicly available. You can convert Word concepts to PDF concepts. Here is another approach: 1. If you are prepared to use Word, open the DOC and print to a PostScript printer. 2. Create a tool to convert PostScript to PDF. How many years do you have? ---------------------------------------- Aandi Inston quite@dial.pipex.com http://www.quite.com Please support usenet!
