When downloading a PDF from any sites, Firefox (57.0.4 32 bit) does not recognize it as a pdf, but as a file with no extension.
This means that I have to open the download folder, and open the file, answer the question about the association and then finally view the PDF.
In the past, the file would auto open, or, at worse, click on the downloaded file.

Anyone have any suggestions, work around?

Hi, I have 3 questions on Adobe Acrobat Pro X

1. One of my users is getting "currently there are no form fields in this PDF" error where other users can edit same PDF.
I've looked on line and I saw a posting that indicates,
I would need to choose the "Edit Text & Images" option under the Context editing from tool bar but can't find that????

2. How can I tell if the users Adobe Acrobat X pro has a valid license and is registered and what that license number is

3. I understand Adobe Acrobat X pro support has ended Nov 2017. Just want to confirm that that doesn't mean it isn't usable???



Thank you very much

I'm working on a client's shopping cart and in the database, they have a pdf listed with this in the "extra" column. Here's a screenshot:

screenshot of database
The text I'm referring to is, "DSEGMENT=seg_dload.txt*ESEGMENT=seg_dload.txt."

I've not seen that before and I'm trying to figure out what it is.

Any ideas?

I need my website to extract the data from a PDF and generate a CSV file. And I hope to do this on the front end, inside the client browser. But, if required, I could to this extraction on the back-end.

The PDF would be a month merchant credit card statement. The data I would extract to a CSV would be the numerous transactions.

What web technology can do this? And without human intervention.

Thanks.

I hope to allow merchants to upload a merchant statement for a particular type of analysis. But I do not want to be the recipient of confidential data, when possible.

Is there an easy way for people to blank out certain fields on a PDF? Things like Business Name, Address, Account Number, etc.

I can do this easily Adobe Acrobat Pro, but would rather not force users to purchase a license just to remove their private info. Is there a simple way, with Adobe Reader, for example, to edit out certain key data?

If not, are there other tools they could use to open the PDF and delete certain fields?

Is it unwise for my site to suggest they use a trial version of Adobe Acrobat Pro and provide them the URL to this free trial?

Thanks.

Have a computer running windows 10.  Everytime i unzip a file that has a PDF file, windows 10 will change the default viewing app to Microsft edge.  I can change it so that the default app is adobe reader, and I can continue to open pdf files with adobe reader until I unzip a pdf file and then it reverts back to microsoft edge.  

Has anyone had this issue and how did you resolve it?

Thanks!

Hi, I use Adobe Creative Cloud 2018, so I have access to both After Effects and Premiere Pro. My question is that I would like to cut a small 20 second clip out of a much longer video. Much like cropping a photo, but I don't want to keep the drop-offs.

So, say I have a 3 minute long video and I want to make a shorter video that is 20 second long, located right in the middle of the longer video. - Is there a way in AE or PPro to shorten that video to my 20 second clip requirements.

Lets say my starting point is a 1:13:00 and it extends to 1:33:00 -- (20 seconds).  

I know I can shorten the working area, but the clip itself isn't really shortened. It remains the same size as the original. - I want to resize it into a new video - 20 second long.

Thanks,
Fulano

I had this question after viewing copy paste text of pdf.


Thank you. Document is "secured" so I see "look up" words that I select but I can not copy and paste.

Because I can see a repeat of the words I highlight (in the menu above); I think it is not ocr.

Hi,

I just wanted to create a batch script which should act as a watch folder, whenever a pdf file is landed in a specific folder it should open automatically and if possible it should get delete on its own after 2 days exactly...

So whenever the new file is created it should open on its own to the viewer..

thanks in advance

In order to post my book on Amazon, I need the PDF to be less than 650 MB. I found many PNG files and cut their sizes dramatically by converting to JPG. I also reduced many JPG files' size equally drastically. But the PDF output does not get smaller.

I use Word for Mac 2017

What could the problem be?

I have a PDF that was created base upon a table in Word 2010.  After I turn on forms control and forms typer in Nuance Power PDF Advanced ver 1.2 I begin to enter in names. In the first column for names, when I add someone's name, as I move to the next cell in that column, if I begin to type someone else's name that has the same first letter as a previous entry in that column, a pick list will pop up to allow me to choose the name I typed in earlier. Is there a way to turn this pick list off?

Thanks,

I have 1 folder called PDFFILES, and in that folder that are many suborders.
In each subfolder, either 1 or 2 or 3 pdfs might be found there.

I want to run a script, that will look in the main PDFILES subfolder.
Then it needs to look into each subfolder and if it finds more than 1 pdf in each subfolder, I would like them to be joined all in 1 pdf file, per subfolder.

Can this be done?
Many thanks for all your assistance.

I have just "published" my book on IngramSpark. I am the publisher, but use IngramSpark as a print-on-demand service and to distribute the book.

They also offer ebook publishing, but I think I need to make that ebook.

Please give me an idea what options I have? What the effort is for each option? What feature my ebook would gain with various methods?

Thanks

I created a form in Microsoft Word, then converted it to Adobe PDF.

Here is how the form appears in edit form:

Edit Attendance Form
Here is what the user will see when filling out the form:

Fillable Attendance Form
The problem with the form, is "Missed 1 meeting" is actually 2 fields (Missed 1 meeting 1 and Missed 1 meeting 2", instead of one field.  

I would like only 1 field for "Missed 1 meeting", with the "text box" wrapping around to the "beginning" of the second line.

Is this possible?

Thanks for your help!

We have thousands of PDFs on our server that take up a lot of space. We know Adobe has the option to save the PDF as a reduce size. Is it possible to automate this? Using .NET or another application?

I have a finished book in Word for Mac, with the page set to 8.5" X 5.5". But when I open the PDF, the file size become 8.5" X 11"

Can I use Adobe Acrobat Pro to change this?

Or is there an incorrect setting on Word?

Lastly, is it a setting in my Mac OS?

Thanks.

Hi

I have a user that is complaining about her Autocad drawings (PDF format) are printing with thicker lines

We printed the same document from her colleagues PCs (all using same version of Autocad 2018 and Acrobat Reader DC) and their printouts are fine

I have completely removed the print driver and then reinstalled it
I removed Adobe Acrobat preferences in user's appdata
I have removed HKCU adobe Acrobat DC key

The situation hasn't improved much

any ideas ?

I have an Adobe Illustrator folder that contains the .ai file, PDF and other formats.

I need to upload a PDF book cover to a website to print copies of the book. But I get this error:

FONTS NOT EMBEDDED IN THE PDF: We require that all fonts be embedded. Please submit a new file with all fonts embedded. You may refer to the File Creation Guide for further instructions on creating a compliant PDF.

I have Adobe Actobat Pro on my machine, and presume I can add the 7 fonts contained in the Fonts folder to the PDF.

How do I do this?

Thanks

Well, here we go again.  Version 57 of Firefox will not accept (show, whatever) the Acrobat extension that captures a web page. Same thing happened in V56, but the workaround, suggested by Joe (See "Firefox Grr) was to download and install the 32bit version. That worked. Today, with the release of 57, the Acrobat extension is even omitted from the 32bit version. Any suggestions?

Is there a way to add content to an existing PDF Layer (using Adobe Acrobat X) and have it exist on that actual layer instead of being added to the entire document?
