I can center a box at the center of the canvas, but that was an exercise. I really ned to center a bung of boxes along the centerline.

I also ned to select an individual box so I can move it up to down to align it visually to the place I want it.

Thanks.

I do not want to restart my license for Adobe Acrobat Pro to make one small change. I added the PDFFiller plug-in to Chrome, but have trouble editing some text.

Should PDFFiller work for me?

If not, what other tool can I use?

I do have a license for PhotoShop CC, however. Can that do it?

Thanks

I configured a custom policy to disable or set to false for AllowIPVideo and EnableP2PVideo, but got message to join a video call from user that has the policy assigned. Is there something else that needs to be set to false?
This is a new CSConferencingPolicy.

I create my PDF's using Word and that is my "source" version of the document.

I need to enable the PDF user to click a link on the PDF and jump to the next spot on that same PDF. How do I do this?

Does this mean I should add a Bookmarks to each destination in thePDF?

And, is there a "Back" button, to enable the PDF user to easily drop back to the prior spot? If so, how do I make that work?

Thanks

I need a robust Contact Management for Mac with an integrated iPhone App so I can add/update/delete records from my iPhone.

I suppose a Web interface is okay instead of a Mac program, but we'll see that the choices are...

Thanks.

I have a pretty GIF file I placed into my PDF. Is there any way that GIF can be animated in the PDF?

I have the GIF hosted on my site, if that helps at all.

Worst case, I can have them click the image, which will open a browser to the animated version...

Thanks

I'm looking for a better task management solution. I could use some suggestions based on my requirements.

requirements in order of importance, top 6 are a must
  1. -has web/PC app and mobile (Android) app, data being synchronized
  2. -tasks can have due dates
  3. -can associate with "note to self" directive on Android, so I can say "OK Google, note to self, buy birthday cards" and it will make a new task for me hands-free
  4. -can search text contents on mobile and on PC
  5. -has some way of categorizing tasks (lists, categories, folders)
  6. -paste images from clipboard into a task
  7. -attach files to a task
  8. -keyboard shortcuts on PC to create and edit tasks
  9. -can create sub-tasks or related (e.g. "is-blocked-by") tasks
  10. -tasks have priorities (normal,high,etc.)
  11. -tasks can have reminders/alerts at least in the Android app
  12. -can be target of share on Android, e.g. a text message, a URL, or an image can feed into the app and becomes a task
  13. -can easily transfer my existing tasks from Google Tasks
  14. -can share one of the task lists/categories with another person

current situation
I'm currently using GTasks on Android and a Chrome extension (Better Google Tasks), which essentially repackages mail.google.com. This solution has much of the above, but the web interface is clunky and I'm really missing the ability to paste images.

which one?
I've read these are popular and good, but that's a lot to test every one of them. Any suggestions?
  • any.do
  • evernote
  • google keep
  • remember the milk
  • TickTick
  • todoist

Have vba code that edits (E) acrobat files adding headers and footers and shrinking file sizes

I understand that Adobe will stop supporting this software on October and they recommend an upgrade

Any advice on the upgrade - how will it affect my code applications?

Examples are

Hi,

I just inherited a new client and put in  shadow copies and proper backups 9/8/17.

They have a XLXS document that was last modified on 8/23/17 and they are trying to access it today. However they get an error "Excel cannot open file 'file.xlsx' because file format or extension is not valid". This is happening on all the computers not just 1

I can not restore this file from backups because I just put them in and my shadow copies do not go back that far.

I have tried:
1. Renaming the file to xls - it does not work it just opens a blank excel doc
2. Repairing the document in excel- Does not work
3. Adding the network location to the trusted trust center
4. Copying it to a local C drive - Does not work, same error
5. Disabling hardware graphics acceleration
6. Making sure the xlsx is associated to excel in default programs
7. Checked Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data (DDE)

I feel like I fixed this before with a reg key.

Can someone please help. This is a very important document for my client. If there is a software that will fix it I am open to purchasing.

I had this question after viewing Missing Categories and colors in Outlook & Outlook.com.

I was reviewing the above article because it is similar in nature to a event that a customer of mine is experiencing.
Outlook 2016, Office 365, Categories got reset to different colors and some were deselected from being shown.

I ran outlook.exe /remigratecategories.
That worked to bring them back, but the colors were wrong and certain categories were not selected any more to be shown.

Does anyone know what causes Office 365 / Outlook 2016 to lose these? Was it a update I ran? was it corruption of some sort?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a system for sharing and updating passwords among a development team.

For example, there could be 5 developers working on one client project and they need to sign into different client systems.

They might also need to sign back in 6 months later so I need a database to store all of these.

Can anyone recommend a system? Thanks in advance for your help.

We're a small school and have free O365 education licenses. So we can use Skype for Business clients (S4b online) for peer to peer.  
We can also addon PBX and PSTN for $15/mo for users if we want, but we're currently still using an old on-site pbx system with old, antiquated phones.  
Whether we stick to peer to peer skype, or replace our phones, are there any references or guides or calculators we should look into for considering bandwidth and quality of service implications?    
We're about 250 employee and faculty.    
Just looking for recommendations/advice here, but I understand there's not always a once size fits all approach for everyone...

I have a Mac where I use Parallels to use PowerPoint to create a presentation.

#1 It seems that MS did not give a viewer for PowerPoint files on a Mac. True or False?

#2 Can I Host GTM on the Mac, then open Parallels and Windows to demo a PP presentation?

#3 If I log onto GTM from Windows, then I assume any potential problems go away.

True?

I use Word for Mac 2017 and export to PDF using

File > Print > PDF > Save As...

The file created is fine.

But Word also has an online conversion.

Is there ay benefit to use the online version? I prefer privacy and to do the conversion locally, but would consider doing it online if there were a benefit.

Thanks.

Hi Experts, we have successfully upgraded Office 2010 to Office 365 (Office 2016) but are noticing that the personal templates location is not populating in Office 365. Is there a way to include this in the ODT? This would be under "Default personal templates locaiton" under Word/Excel options

Example path in Office 2010 and 2016: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

Thanks
