and write a new record to my database.   I can export to a PDF form using iTextSharp so I hope I can import as well.  

My View looks like this:

    @{
        ViewBag.menu = false;
    }

<div class="extraPadding">
    <div class="row" style="margin-bottom: 10px; margin-top: -20px;">
        <div class="col-xs-8">
            <h2>Upload New Request</h2>
        </div>
    </div>

    <div class="col-xs-10">

        <p class="help-block">
            Use the form below to add a New Request.  The Form uploaded must be the correct Request form

Does anyone know what the best pdf editor is?  I would like to be able to open a pdf file, add texts (mainly) for form filling and to be able to save what I have edited\added\removed.  And I would like the feature to export the pdf file to word too.

I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC but am trying to avoid having to pay a monthly subscription.  

I have other tools but they do not work as well.

Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Experts,

Can anyone recommend a good scanning software that has OCR capacity, while maintaining the format of the document, works with any scanner with sheet feeder and produces a PDF?

I have a Brother  Control Center, but the OCR produces a simple text file, but I need to preserve the formatting.
Thanks

I am using PDFSharp to print HTML content to a PDF.

It's working great and I have it printing and downloading to the browser, but the HTML is much larger than the original. The images, the fonts, everything are  just huge.

I've even tried wrapping my HTML in a div with the transform set to .75 and I even tried all the possible zooms and transforms and that didn't work either. So I don't know if PDFSharp doesn't support those.

    Private Sub ExportToPDF(ByVal html As String, ByVal filename As String)
        Dim config As New PdfGenerateConfig
        With config
            .PageOrientation = PageOrientation.Landscape
            .PageSize = PageSize.A4
            .SetMargins(0)
            .MarginBottom = 36
            .MarginLeft = 36
            .MarginRight = 36
            .MarginTop = 36
        End With

       Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
        sb.Append("<div style=""transform: scale(.75);"">" & vbCrLf)
        html = sb.ToString & html & "</div>"


        Dim pdfDoc As New PdfDocument()
        pdfDoc = PdfGenerator.GeneratePdf(html, config)

....

Open in new window


Anyway, with all the things I've tried, I end up with a div at the top with every possibility:

<div style="transform: scale(.75);zoom: .65;  -webkit-transform: scale(.65);  -moz-transform: scale(.65);  -ms-transform: scale(.65);  -o-transform: scale(.65);  transform: scale(.65); ">

Open in new window


Which still doesn't work. Again, my HTML works great printing on an 8.5 x 11 normally and with another PDF renderer (telerik). But with this one it just renders it huge in the PDF.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

We have Edge blocked in our school, which prevents us from opening PDFs.  I went in to Settings and tried to change the default app for pdfs from Edge to Adobe but Win10 just closes the settings window and doesn't save the change.  Any ideas?

We have Excel & Desktop objects embedded into a Word doc
which by clicking on the objects' icons, will launch Excel/objects
but when the Word doc is printed/converted to PDF (using
Adobe PDF printer or CutePdf writer), these objects became
images in the converted PDF.

Is there a way to embed these Excel objects in the PDF such
that we can still open/launch the Excel from within the PDF?

Free tools will be appreiciated.

I need to update a few of our old Acrobat 9.5 pdf forms to the newer Acrobat 2017/DC pdf forms.  Is there a tool out there that will help speed this up?  Right now I'm having to export the Acrobat 9.5 forms to Word and then from Acrobat 2017/DC I import the Word doc using the Form wizard designer.

I have files with a DWG extension.  They were made a bunch of years ago and are supposedly blueprints. they are about 100KB files.  They've been sitting on a thumb drive for years.

I've tried opening them with irfanview and LibreCAD.  Both say they can't open them.

I used https://www.zamzar.com/convert/dwg-to-pdf/ for one of them and it made a PDF with some rectangular shapes / lines, but likely not all that shoudl be there and not aligned correctly (1 rectangle is off to the side).  Is it because they are old and newer programs cant render them correctly? Or they corrupt?

Any recommendations on a universal viewer or something that might be able to open the files?  We're looking to make PDFs or something so we can print them on a large paper printer at staples.

Dear experts,

I can see my word document  with correct level of header and footer margin.

When i print it using my 'HP Deskjet GT 5810,' i find that the footer margin is very large.

So to check what was happening , i saved my above word document into a pdf document . I then I turned the pdf up-side down (turned it 180 degree). I printed the pdf document once again.  i found that the footer margin in the (180 degree turned doc) print out is still large ( irrespective of  the  swap )

Means there is no difference in the footer margin irrespective of how i print the page.

I understand from this observation that I might need to tweek my printer.

Kindly suggest if i need to make changes in my printer
