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!

Dear Experts:

I got a single Checkbox named 'MyCheckBox' on an acrobat form.

I would like to run a javascript on that CheckBox with the following requirments:

If MyCheckBox gets checked, the script should ...

the following actions are to be performed:
this.getField("sl2").readonly = false ;
this.getField("sl2").required = true ;
this.getField("sl2").fillColor = color.white ;

... else MyCheckbox gets unchecked
... do other stuff

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

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.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I recently scanned a document which contained a bullet list using Adobe Acrobat XI Professional and saved it as a word document using the option of Word 97 - 2003.  I opened it using MS Word 2013 for editing purposes.  Upon opening the document, I did notice the bullet symbols were distorted and changed which brings me to the point of this question. How can I use MS Word 2013 to change the distorted bullet symbols to the desired correct ones?

            Thank you

            George

Hello Experts,

At our business, we use both Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Creative Cloud (CC).  Due to the nature of the work, we would like to permit the CC users to continue to save and  share work to the Adobe Cloud.  We would like to block saving and sharing to the Adobe Cloud for the Acrobat DC users because we want them to use MS OneDrive.

We can do this if we purchase the higher priced licensing but we are trying to avoid that.
The firewall is not an option because if off-site users do not log in using the VPN, the firewall rules are bypassed.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

Thank you,
Steph M

We use IVANTI as deployment system to deploy software.
When we deploy ADOBE ACROBAT READER, the user can use it but it is not the default PDF program.
In WIN10 the default for PDF is IE. But we need ACROBAT.

Do you know a way to set ACROBAT as default PDF reader after an installation ?

Hello.  We have been trying to figure this out for some time now.  We have an end user who is requesting the "Bookmarks" window not open by default when opening a PDF in Adobe Acrobat XI Standard.  Have any of you experienced this before?  Is there a way to fix this and have the setting stay saved when launching Acrobat after a reboot?  Any help is appreciated.

Dear Experts:

below java script assigned to a button checks for empty fields (required ones) in my adobe acrobat form.

I would like to add the following functionality:

All of the required fields that have not been filled in / checked (the app.alert will tell the user) should have a yellow fill so the user can easily see which fields have not been filled in yet.

Help is much appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas



var emptyFields = [];

for (var i=0; i<this.numFields; i++) {

     var f= this.getField(this.getNthFieldName(i));

     if (f.type!="button" && f.required ) {

          if ((f.type=="text" && f.value=="") || (f.type=="checkbox" && f.value=="Off") || (f.type=="radiobutton" && f.value=="Off")) emptyFields.push(f.name);

     }

}

if (emptyFields.length>0) {

     app.alert("Error! You must fill in the following fields:\n" + emptyFields.join("\n"));

}

Open in new window
