We originally had a problem with PDF documents opening outside of the kofax window. The file would open in adobe pro.

We seemed to have solved that problem by selecting the "treat pdf as a tiff" option in the batch class.  Now we have a problem where each page of a pdf file is creating a separate batch.   any ideas?

Hello! My HR manager is having issues with Adobe reader when attempting to preview resumes in Outlook 2010 on Win7. She doesn't actually open the attachments as she prefers to preview them in Outlook to save time. I updated her computer and re-installed reader to no avail. Any ideas? Attached snap of error code. Thanks in advance!

Hello,

We have a Windows 2012 RDS environment.  

We installed Acrobat Reader DC and also MS Office to the RDS servers.  

If we want the applications on the RDS server to be able to print to PDF, what are the requirements?  

Thanks.

Hi

Not sure if this is easily addressable.

However, unlike opening most files from Outlook.
When I open a PDF file from Outlook into either Adobe Acrobat or Reader.  Save As seems to confuse some of my users and would almost prefer it to be handled more like any other file opened  from Outlook into its associated application were it starts out in the "Library/ Documents " folder instead of deep in the Windows internet temp folder.

For me, it's not really an issue just want to offer it as a solution to some of my users that don't like starting a save as deep in the Windows internet temp folder.

THANK YOU

I created two dynamic stamps with word "Docket" and a text field By "First name Last Name" and as soon as I give it to the user the letters "Docket" are replaced with dots. Seems like it is a font issue but the user has the same standard fonts as me and I tried Times New Roman and Calibri, same result. I have attached a screenshot

I have a specific pc in a windows domain network that has an issue with IE add on. Not all of the add ons such as pdf, silverlight are showing up. I've tried to reinstall, reset both IE and the applications but the add ons fail to show up in IE. I am filtering by 'all add ons'

The machine is running win 7 pro x86. the other machines which are identical don't have this issue. they all have the same domain policies applied. I've compared the advanced settings in IE with a working machine pc to make sure they coincide.

This tells me this might be a local issue.

Any pointers would help. Thanks in advance.

Dear Experts,

Please see attached fillable form with dummy names for testing. I am trying to added the selected values from the listbox to the File Name field delimited with a comma. So it would like like: name1, name2, name3  without a comma at the end of the last name. If only one name is selected then just the name is selected: name1

I am not having much success with this. I've been working on this for sometime and my values are just sticking.

Would you please provide some guidance! Thank you!

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We have a document and when you open it everything looks fine. If you try to print or Save As PDF or save to new name content on pages 4 and 5 shift and some text moves to page 9. I think it has to do with one section being two columns. The problem is I can not fix it.

I'm a paralegal and would consider myself an "experienced Adobe user", or so I thought until I ran into the following issue. In my line of work, everything we touch has to be in a PDF format so every document I handle comes as a PDF or I convert it into a PDF before electronically filing it since US Courts only accept PDF format. Most of my work deals w/loan contracts so I've always used the "REDACTION" tool to hide Personally identifiable information (PII) SSN, acct # etc. before filing it, that is until a client told me they were able to "remove" or "undo" the redactions I'd made over the SSN in the PDF & sent a screenshot as proof. I didn't think this was even possible!! And now, they want all personal data redacted manually using a black marker over all PII,  scan it, and email it to myself in order to then attach it to the rest of the pleading!!!! PLEASE PLEASE tell me there is a way to lock/secure a PDF so as to prevent anyone from editing, changing or altering a PDF to have the redactions removed. I reuse to believe that from now on, I have to use a marker to redact when Adobe is equipped with a tool called redaction.
Adobe does have a tool under file to "Export" to Word Document, Image, Text, HTML and many other formats. Could they be exporting the data to a Word Document then obtaining the personal information that way?  

Please help!!!

Looking for a way to except electronic signatures on site using a Windows Surface Pro4 and a PDF document. I have a health clinic that is doing survey's in the field and need to have the ability to have people sign a document. All the E-sign solutions I have found either require a separate signature pad or sending the document via email to receive a signature. I'm just looking for a way to sign the PDF directly on the surface.

The processes appear to be in a suspended state when viewing the Details tab in Task Manager.
Same shows in Process Explorer with the same results when trying to terminate from Process Explorer.
Process explorer shows nothing in the lower pane for the suspended processes.
The only way to clear these suspended processes is to reboot the server.

Windows Server 2012 R2 Build 9600

Unless it is coincidental we are able to correlate the suspended processes to a .NET Runtime unhandled exception followed by an Application Error. In both of these entries it references an exception code of c0000005 for the .NET Runtime entry and 0xc0000005 for the Application Error entry.

I don't know if there is/are switch out there for the print parameter.

Thanks for you help.

I have four buttons stacked on top of one another (white button, red button, yellow button and green button) in a PDF form. When the PDF is opened, the white button is visible, the others are hidden. If the user clicks the white button, the white button is hidden and the red button becomes visible. If the user clicks the red button, the red button is hidden and the yellow button becomes visible. This pattern continues through to the green button and then cycles back to the white button again. This works well, however, when I open the PDF the white button is showing and if I click it to change it to any other color (lets say red) and close the PDF it does not save the fact the button color was changed to red and re-opening the PDF again shows the white button again and not the red button. How can I fix this? I have a sample of what I've done so far attached.

If there is a another or better way to achieve this effect, I'm open to it.

Hi,
I have an Access database that we log lab requests against. The table has unique datasets based on data that is entered against a lab_num that is unique to that request. I am looking for a way to have the lab_num as a hyperlink that points to a specific network folder U://MCL/MCL_Reports/#lab_num#.pdf, so each lab_num has a specific link to the network folder based on it's value. lab_num1.pdf, lab_num2.pdf, etc. I would prefer to do this right in the main access database as new data is entered the same blanket hyperlink is created so that requestors can click on a link as opposed to having to email the finished #lab_nums#.pdf separately.

Hi,

I need some help with JavaScript on an Adobe form I have created.

What I have are 3 fields, one a text box ("Text1") and 2 check boxes ("PASS1" and "FAIL1") which cover the words "PASS" and "FAIL" on the original PDF.

I would like to be able to fill in the text box with a numerical value and if the numerical value is <10 then the checkbox "FAIL1" would be selected. If the numerical value is >10 then the checkbox "PASS1" would be selected.

Thank you for your help

I found some code on Stack OverFlow that allows me to combine pdfs and insert bookmarks - which is pretty close to exactly what i needed: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5514176/merging-pdfs-programatically-while-maintaining-the-combine-files-bookmark-s/42720290#42720290

however it does not completely satisfy our needs.

The code does create a blank pdf and inserts pages and bookmarks for each section inserted, but it does not take bring in bookmarks from the original pdf's as children to the bookmarks it is creating.

Example: I have 3 pdfs.

Name     Desired BookMark Name
1.PDF    Cover Page  (2 pages)
2.PDF    Test Reports (8 pages)           (which has 2 bookmarks inside of it  - ABC on page 3 and XYZ on page 8
3.PDF    Operating Manual (6 pages)

the first part of the code below builds a 2 dimensional array with the filename and desired bookmark name.

the code below does create a new pdf with the 3 files and creates bookmarks

new.pdf
Cover Page  (Page 1)
Test Reports (Page 3)
Operating Manual (Page 11)

what i need is the following:
Cover Page  (Page 1)
Test Reports (Page 3)
     ABC (Page 5)
     XYZ (Page 8)
Operating Manual (Page 11)

any help would be greatly appreciated.
