I'd like to know how to have a "fillable" pdf file on my website.

I need my customers to download the file, complete it, and send it back.

I assume I need to buy some kind of license from Adobe?  It's sortof like giving everybody access to Adobe Acrobat DC functionality for just that one file.

Or maybe, if that's either impossible or too expensive, an alternative solution might be just to share a Google Docs file?

Thanks

How to convert Base64 Encode format to pdf using Notepad++ (or) UltraEdit ?

We are not allowed to use any other third party tools.

I have an existing file which came to us in Base64 Encode format.  In order to review the file, we will have to convert the Base64 Encode to pdf file.

We have inherited a new site with an ageing terminal server.  On the terminal server they have Adobe Acrobat Standard 9, Version 9.0.0 which is used to edit PDF forms.  This is used by 50 users via the terminal server whilst the site only has one device copy of Adobe Acrobat Standard 9, Version 9.0.0.  Is this licensed correctly?  

I know on more recent copies of Adobe you need one copy per user but I’ve been told on older copies such as this you can use it on a terminal server with one device licence.

It should have the following steps:
1. Allow user to choose the folder where all the pdf reside
2. Convert the .txt files
3. Ask user to select the designated folder to store the .txt files = "OK | CANCEL "

I am currently using "PDF-XChange Editor" to open .pdf files and then "Save As" .txt into a designated folder.

The .txt files should have the same name as the .pdf files.

Thanks.

Any personal recommendations for an adobe acrobat replacement?  Im looking for personal recommendations, not results from a google search.

Foxit is an option.  I want the full bells and whistles, ideally for circa. $50 or less.  Possibly with student discount or NHS discount if offered.

Hi,
I must export a batch of .PDF files to Excel by matching as close as possible the original .PDF files (not just text transfert).
I have a subscription with Adobe Acrobat Pro but I can't find any examples of source code to help me with this challenge.
I'm already an expert with VBA through MS Access, but I'm very beginner at using Adobe Acrobat functions, objects and so on.
I really need examples written in VBA that can do that.
Thanks!

Hello everyone, I got a new install and the user can not find their Adobe Acrobat DC 2015 software, is there a way I can get the serial number from software and download another copy of Acrobat DC 2015 and use that serial number? The user has looked everywhere with no luck of finding the original disk or download but they really don't want to buy another copy.

I want to generate unique numbers for every page on a pdf file.

In sudo code it would look something like

next_number = 393456
job_code = "abc"
file = "some_document.pdf"
total_pages = pageCount(file)

For each page in file
     next_number = next_number +1
     addFooter(job_code + " "+next_number)
next

Open in new window


Most likely this would be command line (windows).  Right now, what I have found is https://www.pdflabs.com/docs/pdftk-man-page/.  Reading the docs, it looks like I need to first find out how many pages are in the pdf, then generate a blank pdf with just a footer and add the unique "next_number" to every page. Then merge this document with the document I want to add the footer to.

What I am looking for are other command line tools available where I can add something unique to every page with hopefully some type of free tool where I can do this programatically. Are there better options than pdftk?

We are trying to install Adobe Acrobat 17 on certain employees computers. The install will complete after putting in the serial number. But once you try to launch the application it pops up for a moment and closes out. At this time the EULA is supposed to pop up and accept it. But it does not. So the software is in a forever state of opening and closing and not allowing us to accept the EULA. I have tried running it as an administrator and this still happens. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

We have a user that is requesting that his digital signature password be saved so he does not have to keep on putting it in every time he signs a pdf. He said it used to not constantly prompt him each time he signed a pdf with XI but with Adobe Standard 2017 it prompts him each time. Apparently he signs a lot during the day. Is there a way to reduce the amount of times he has t put in his password for his digital signature?

I'm filling in a lengthy adobe medical related form and the stupid software will not allow me to save the file as I progress. I have lost data several times now.

It says at the top I need to click sign and then done, but then this will not allow me to continue editing the document.  When I try and select Save as, I get a dialogue box saying that Adobe cannot only save a blank version of this form and data typed into the document will not be saved.

What gives?  I'm completing the form in Adobe reader (the free one).

I’m trying to help a friend of mine who administers the church cemetery.

I never thought editing PDFs would be so difficult. What my friend would like to be able to do is change the colors of the grave plots.

I’m using Adobe Acrobat Pro.

Hopefully this is not too difficult.

Thanks

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

ms app that displays a pdf file in an access sub form. For years had been using an adobe activex
add-in to run this by providing a pdf file path as the control source. This has been redacted or never legit in the first place after 2010 version. Now I have to use a MS web browser control in place of the adobe activex control. The app let's the user update info in another sub form and then "Refresh" the pdf by recreating the file. During this process, I'm getting rt error 2501 the outputto operation has been cancelled when I try to refresh. It appears that adobe reader is still running in the background, which I think is causing the error.
I'm looking for a code snippet to close the adobe reader app.

The vba in question is
DoCmd.OpenReport "Work Order Report", acViewReport, , "JOB.JOB_NO='" & CurJobNo & "'"   ', acHidden
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "Work Order Report", acFormatPDF, Temp1Path, False
DoCmd.Close acReport, "Work Order Report"

the docmd.Outputto.. item is where it fails

How to print a PDF Saddle Stitched booklet?

I am having trouble using Word to print a booklet, and used ILovePDF.com to convert a Word booklet to the attached PDF.

DocTemplate3ILovePDF.pdf

This booklet appear to be intact. But, I can not get the PDF to print, using Adobe Acrobat (PDF), on my Mac, using an HP MFP M127fw.

Here is the Print window...

Adobe Print (Mac)
I select to print from pages 1 to 1 and that bring out 2 pages.

IF they were on the same sheet, opposite sides, they wold be correct.

What can you suggest I do to make it stop so I can flip the page??

I also just discovered some juicy details that probably hold the answer.

More Options
Suggestions??

 

Thanks

We deployed Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to our users and we want to make a global change to how that client for everyone.  We don't want users to get a security warning when they click on a link in any PDF - we want that link to open in their default web browser.  Users could do that manually by opening Acrobat Reader DC (version 2019.012.20035) and selecting Edit/Preferences/ Trust Manager/ and clicking on Change Settings under Internet Access from PDF Files outside the web browser.  Then you can just click a radio button for Allow PDF files to access all web sites, or under Custom Setting choose Allow Access under Default Behavior for web sites that are not in the above list.  I need a registry key that correlates to either of these states.  Does anyone have an idea?
