        {

            WebClient User = new WebClient();

            Byte[] FileBuffer = User.DownloadData("\\\\lsmfs1\\726984\\2016\\726984.pdf");

            if (FileBuffer != null)
            {

                Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

                Response.AddHeader("content-length", FileBuffer.Length.ToString());

                Response.BinaryWrite(FileBuffer);

            }

        }

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.

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

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

I noticed a lot of construction/designers and architects prefer using that Bluebeam software instead of the Acrobat.  Is that a price alternative or there are other benefits?  
Anyone familiar with the software?

I am updating AutoCAD 2019 documents and saving them as PDF files so others can view them.  When I try to Plot the document to a PDF file it only creates a PDF of the area that is shown in white.  How do I expand the white area to cover the whole page of the CAD document?  The original came from our vendor and we just update the document as changes are made in our district.  There are 7 tabs in this document that have the exact same issue.

What are my options for creating a PDF file from my WebApi2... initiated from my SPA using Sencha ExtJs? The concept is I want to have a template in PDF with a grid, and based on user selection from my front end website, fill in the grid with data from my database. I'm not looking for someone to write code for me, just for a path to go down. I am open to suggestions so if a template is too complex I am open to creating the PDF from stratch every time. Whichever is the least complicated option as I am definitely no expert.

thanks!

A user I support needs to know how she can expand the "Edit Text" fields within an Adobe Acrobat XI Pro document she is modifying.

For example, when the "Edit Text and Images" option is selected within Acrobat PDF documents Acrobat automatically defines the borders for the text and images. When these borders are clicked on and dragged (in an attempt to expand them) the entire block of text is moved.

How can these borders be expanded to larger sizes (or simply deleted) without affecting the text and images contained within the block?

The user needs to be able to type text that will extend beyond these predefined borders.

An Adobe Acrobat Pro DC user is sometimes unable to print or preview  Adobe PDF documents.

When this issue occurs if the user opens a PDF file and does a print preview of the file the file shows as a completely blank page. When the user prints the file it also prints as a completely blank page.

This user is running Adobe Pro DC version 2018.011.20038. All Adobe updates have been installed and there are no more updates available.

All Windows updates have also been installed on this user's Windows 10 computer.

So far the only fix I have been able to find has been switching the user's file association for opening PDF files over from Adobe Pro to Adobe Reader DC (which also has all updates installed and is running the 2018.011.20038 version).

When the user does a print preview of and then prints these exact same files within Adobe Reader the files print successfully and without any problems.

What can be done to fix this issue?

My secretary created a 5,000 page PDF.

When I open the PDF, the first page opens at 128%.  

My problem, is that when I click on page 100, it opens at 52% zoom.  Then I have to change it to 100% zoom.

When I click on page 102, it opens at 52% zoom.  Then I have to change it to 100% zoom.

How can I make ALL pages open at 100 zoom.

Thanks for your help!
