I am trying to extract text from a PDF file using poppler's pdftohtml utility (on Windows).
It fails with the following error: Syntax Error: Missing language pack for 'Adobe-Japan1' mapping
I downloaded the poppler data package from https://poppler.freedesktop.org/poppler-data-0.4.9.tar.gz
and unpacked the directory Adobe-Japan1 to <pdftohtml.exe location>\share\poppler\cMap\
But it still gives me the same error.
What is a correct way to attach mapping files to poppler?

Hello Experts,

I am writing to see if anyone can help with Acrobat DC (both reader and standard) taking a long time to open (and especially) close files.  I have an i7 two core (4 with hyperthreading) processor at base freq. of 2.10 GHz, 16 GB RAM, and a SSD drive.  This system has a relatively fresh (two weeks old) Windows 10 Pro install, and is running quite well otherwise.

I have Acrobat Reader DC installed.  Actually, on Tuesday as part of the troubleshooting process I used the Adobe tool to completely uninstall and clean out the previous Acrobat Reader DC install, and then after doing so I reinstalled the same product.  Immediately after that install, it appeared that Acrobat Reader was again opening and closing files as expected.  However, after opening and closing just a couple of files, it began slowing down considerably again.

As a test, I just attempted to open a 22 KB file in Acrobat Reader.  I already had the reader open, and then opened the file through the File --> Open dialog.  It took just over 8 secs. to open the file.  Not blinding fast, but manageable.  I then used the same dialog (File --> Close) to close the file, and it took over 30 seconds!  I did not have any other applications open on my system at the time.  I have been able to reproduce similar results on my system using a number of files with varying sizes.  I've also seen similar results on an Amazon workspace system with Acrobat Standard installed.

I've searched online for help and …

Hi All,

I'm looking to save an Access Report as a password protected pdf using VBA.  I have Adobe Acrobat DC - Standard, we can't use other third party downloads here.  I've seen lots of examples with third party tools doing this, but none with Adobe itself.

 Does anyone have a snippet of code for this?

 Thanks for your help!

Problem printing two half-pages on one side of the paper.

I am creating a flier that is 5.5 X 8.5, two sided, and wanted to use Word to force myself to make two halves on the page. That works and is done.

But, I am having trouble printing it. I want both sides on the single side, side-by-side, of a Letter sides page. Then I can flip the printed pages and pass is through the printer again, and print it a second time with the same Word document.

How do I do this?

I hope I do not need to lay this out again.

I would consider printing each page to a PDG then using Adobe Acrobat CC to merge into the two into one document.

Can anyone help explain my options?

Thanks.

Dear Experts

Below is a button script on my Adobe Acrobat Form that  that performs the following action:

All the fields with the exception of field names that start with 'mtx' will get the fillColor 'Gray'.

for (var i = 0; i < this.numFields; i++) {
    var f = this.getField(this.getNthFieldName(i));
    var reg = /^mtx/;

    if (f != null && f.name.match(reg) == null) {
        f.fillColor = color.ltGray;
    }
}

Open in new window


How is the code to be changed, if there are more field names that should be excluded, such as field names that start with 'gsl' and 'ktn'

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, andreas

I received a large PDF file. It took days for me to type in all the information. I would like to save this file with the text. Is there any work-around to saving this PDF file with my entered text?
There was a message bar that said that I cannot save the text and that if I try to save the document, I just get the original PDF file saved devoid of my text entries. Sure enough, those words were true. For that reason, I shut off WIFI because an update might cause a reboot, and I would lose my text.

Luckily on Windows 10, I was able to print to a PDF file which I was able to transfer to a Windows 7 laptop, and email that file back to the sender. The printed PDF file has all my information, but it is not-editable; and I can't even copy text data from this saved file.

I had asked the sender to send me a PDF file with the ability to save the text, in case of a OS crash. Answer was a firm "No" - end of discussion. Anyway, now that I have sent the completed form back to the sender, this request doesn't matter. I am still keeping the Acrobat program in memory with my text data in case I get feedback that I have to revise it.

If I can't save my PDF file text, I started thinking about a work-around by using a new SSD that I will use to replace the HD someday; but I fail to see how I can use it to give me a backup of the in-memory work that I have done. For now, I put my Windows 10 laptop to sleep on a permanent basis until I figure this one out, or just give up, and let the …

from fpdf import FPDF

In the above program, pdf_object is creating empty pdf file as the object in class needs to be passed for output. But, recover_data contains a list and each value is passing and returning different objects and need to be merged and give single pyfpdf object and passed it to output function of pyfpdf. Any help would be appreciated. I know it can be done with the help pdf_object('savefile.pdf','S').

I am working with a PDF form with calculated form fields.

My fields are Revenue and TotC
If I use Adobe's Simplified Field Notation, I simply include:
(Revenue*.123)+123

Open in new window

in the Calculate field for TotC and get my result, but unfortunately, until a number is entered in Revenue, TotC shows 123.

I'd like to use Custom calculation script, so that if Revenue is empty, TotC is also empty, and once a number has been entered into Revenue, TotC is calculated as (Revenue*.007489)+74000

I'm not very skilled at JS, what's the coding I would need to include in my Custom calculation script box to make that happen?

Thanks!

is there a programitic way Keep Adobe Acrobat Reader as default PDF program?
Many times I have gone to settings / system / default apps / choose default apps by file type, under Windows 10 to set Adobe Acrobat Reader as the default for PDF files.  This will work for a day or so and then gets automatically changed back to Microsoft Edge.  How can we  keep it to Acrobat Reader ? We have tons of  laptops on the field and this happens to all laptops and need a program or an script to do it so we can pushed on to to he field laptops

I have been tasked with finding out why some of the PDFs we receive as attachments through our web service results in garbled font.  I am an Oracle developer normally so this is a completely new area to me, and I don't even know what to google for.

We work with a third party vendor.  Providers upload documents to their site as either PDFs or Word documents.  The Word documents are converted to PDFs.  When their administrators review these documents after they are uploaded, they look fine to them, but after we receive them through our web service, the text overlaps itself.  Not all of them, only a few of them and seemingly from specific providers, who are customers of the third party, not our customers directly (so I can't ask them what they heck they are doing).  

If you look at the attachment, the first two examples show where there is a random letter in the middle of the sentence but it actually belongs at the end of the line.

In the third example, if you start pulling out the letters in red, you get, “year old female who was seen” and then if you pull out the rest of the letters you get “at the office today for follo”.  

I know very little about web services and almost nothing about the creation of PDFs.  Any ideas on where to start looking, and what terminology I should be using when I research?

Thank you!
