Adobe acrobat X standard cannot now find Fi-5110C scanner ( scanner not found error) since a recent system hang on Win 7 Pro box. Scanner routines using Twain driver un-affected and still running. I have re-installed Acrobat  and scanner drivers from source but to no avail.
Scanner properties read.
Fujitsu Driver               9-21-1600
Scanner dll version    not found
Twain      data              9-21-1600
ST mini driver              2-1-3-1
Usb Port mapper ver  6-1-7601-18199.

SFC /scannow reports no issues.

Some users intermittently get Outlook error message "Outlook experienced a serious problem with the 'adobe document cloud for microsoft outlook - acrobat' add-in. If you have seen this message multiple times, you should disable this add-in and check to see if an update is available." They get it infrequently.

I have an Outlook error event 1000 at the same time: "Add-in execution error. Outlook crashed during the 'Close' callback of the 'ItemEvents' interface while calling into the 'Adobe Document Cloud for Microsoft Outlook - Acrobat' add-in."

Adobe accounts are set up, users are logged in, and addin is enabled. Few, if any, actually use it.

What is going wrong? How do I fix it without just disabling the add-ins?

I'm currently trying to print out PDF files in a folder on my c drive,I thought it'd be smart to put all files in a printing queue, and then print them all in one go. Is this in any way possible with VBA?
I am trying to avoid looping through the folder.I cam manually copy and paste them in the print queue but I am trying to avoid doing that also.
Thanks

Xpdf - PDFtoPS - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to PS (PostScript)
In this tenth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoPS utility, which converts a PDF file to PostScript (PS). Also, it provides an option allowing creation of an Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file. It performs its functions via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

1. Download the software


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

https://www.xpdfreader.com/download.html

Visit that site and download the pre-compiled Windows binary ZIP archive, then unzip it.

Step1

2. Locate the documentation folder for the Xpdf utilities


Go to the folder where you unzipped the downloaded ZIP file and find the doc folder.

Step2

3. Read the documentation for the PDFtoPS tool


Go into the doc folder and find the plain text file called pdftops.txt.

Open it with any text editor, such as Notepad, and read it. This is the documentation for the PDFtoPS tool.

Step3

4. Set up a test folder


Create a test folder.

Copy pdftops.exe from the unzipped bin32 folder into your test folder.

Copy a sample PDF file into your test folder.

Step4

5. Set up a command prompt for testing


Open a command prompt window.

Navigate to your test folder.

Issue a DIR command in the command prompt to be sure that only two files are in it - the PDFtoPS executable and the sample PDF file.

Step5

6. Run the PDFtoPS utility to create the PostScript file


Issue the following command in the command prompt:

pdftops TestFileName.pdf

Xpdf - PDFtoPPM - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to PPM, PGM, PBM
In this ninth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoPPM tool, which converts a PDF file to color portable pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale portable graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome (black & white) portable bitmap (PBM) format. It creates a separate image file for each page of the PDF file. It does this via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

1. Download the software


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

Step3

4. Set up a test folder


Create a test folder.

Copy pdftoppm.exe from the unzipped bin32 folder into your test folder.

Copy a sample PDF file into your test folder, preferably one with numerous pages.

Step4

5. Set up a command prompt for testing


Open a command prompt window.

Navigate to your test folder.

Issue a DIR command in the command prompt to be sure that only two files are in it - the PDFtoPPM executable and the sample PDF file.

Xpdf - PDFtoHTML - Command Line Utility to Convert a PDF File to HTML
In this eighth video of my Xpdf series, I discuss and demonstrate the PDFtoHTML utility, which, exactly as its name says, converts a PDF file to HTML. It does this via a command line interface, making it suitable for use in programs, scripts, batch files — any place where a command line call can be made.

1. Download the software


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

4. Set up a test folder


Create a test folder.

Copy pdftohtml.exe from the unzipped bin32 folder into your test folder.

xpdfrc - Configuration File for All Xpdf Utilities
This is the eleventh — and final — video of my Experts Exchange Micro Tutorials on the Xpdf utilities. The first video is an overview of the command line tools. The next nine videos are tutorials on all them:

PDFimages - Extract Images from PDF Files
PDFtoText - Convert PDF Files to Plain Text Files
PDFinfo - Retrieve Page Count and Other Information from PDF Files
PDFdetach - Detach Attachments from PDF Files
PDFtoPNG - Convert a Multi-page PDF File into Separate PNG Files
PDFfonts - List Fonts Used in a PDF File
PDFtoHTML - Convert a PDF File to HTML
PDFtoPPM - Convert a PDF File to PPM, PGM, PBM
PDFtoPS - Convert a PDF File to PS (PostScript)

This last video in the series discusses xpdfrc, which is the single configuration file that Xpdf uses for all nine utilities. It provides an enormous number of options, allowing extensive control of the tools, such as character mapping, font configuration, PostScript control, rasterizer settings, text control, and much more.

1. Download the software and fonts


You may have already downloaded the Xpdf tools while watching one of my earlier videos in the series, but there has since been an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 and there is a new download site:

https://www.xpdfreader.com/download.html

Visit that site and download the pre-compiled Windows binary ZIP archive, then unzip it.

Download the Symbol and Zapf Dingbats fonts from the same page.

Step1

2. Locate the documentation folder for the Xpdf utilities


Go to the folder where you unzipped the downloaded ZIP file and find the doc folder.

Is there a way to use a report number on a PDF file  as a key to read information from an Excel spreadsheet?

Good Morning Experts,

I just rolled out a shiny new Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Session Host\Terminal Server and everything is working fine and all is right with the world.

Then the employees that handle PDFs all day started screaming.  Apparently, Adobe Acrobat DC as the preview handler for PDFs is a slow nightmare.  I have tested it and they are right.  It is horribly slow and near useless in the Windows Explorer preview window.  All the Google fu I could muster did not yield any solutions.

I have heard that the Foxit Reader is a good replacement for Adobe Reader in these situations.  I have tested it and it is very fast at rendering PDFs.

My question:

Can I set the default application for PDFs to Adobe Reader and the preview handler for Windows Explorer to Foxit?  If so, how?

Thoughts?

Does anyone know what the best pdf editor is?  I would like to be able to open a pdf file, add texts (mainly) for form filling and to be able to save what I have edited\added\removed.  And I would like the feature to export the pdf file to word too.

I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC but am trying to avoid having to pay a monthly subscription.  

I have other tools but they do not work as well.

Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

Does PDF files also have such metadata?

Ever since we upgraded to Acrobat 2019, we have been having problems creating pdf's from AutoCAD Civil 3d 2018. Black/white pdf's appear to have colored linework on-screen while zoomed out but turn black/gray as you zoom in (the pdf's plot correct without color). Also, random linework in the pdf is broken/randomly jumbled - dashed lines appear as arrows.

I have several Windows 10 computers with either Adobe Acrobat Standard or Professional DC installed (Volume Licenses).  When I open any pdf with Acrobat, I can see all the tools on the right side.  If I open the same document or any other document via an Internet browser (IE), the only tools displayed are Comment and Fill & Sign.  I spent two hours on the phone with Adobe Support yesterday trying to explain this issue even though they could actually see the issue via a remote session.  There was a significant language barrier that I did not want to deal with.  So the call was a complete waste of time.  

So what I am saying is if I view any file within IE, I only see two tools: comment and fill & Sign.  If I download the same file to the computer and open it up via acrobat I see all the tools. I looked over all Acrobat settings and they appear fine, but I am still stumped as to why not all the basic adobe tools appear.

In previous work place, the Canon IR ADV 4251 offers OCR scanning to PDF
ie the resultant softcopy PDF is text-searchable.

However, in current work place, the same model does not offer this feature.

Is this a plug-in or just an OS upgrade or some sort of additional add-on we
have to buy : can point me to some articles/manual that mention this?

If it's a software upgrade only, can point me to the specific version & where
to get the software?  If it's just a feature to turn on, appreciate the
instructions on how to do this

Odd issue.

I have a Windows 10 pro PC.

I am unable to change the default app for PDFs from Edge back to Adobe Acrobat.

It has been defaulted to Adobe but has reverted back and even using the fixes of playing with the registry it will not accept Adobe.

I can however change it from Edge to Chrome but not Acrobat.

Help!

Hi there!

I have mistakenly closed a panel (don´t know if this is the proper name) in which I  was able to change a straight line to a dotted line easily.

I guess It was the same panel in which I could change the font size (and color) of text, among other things...

I have no idea where I can put this panel visible again.  If it is more than one panel, please tell me where to find both of them!

Thanks,
fskilnik.
