  • 1. Matrix problem... please enlighten
    Dear all, I'm trying to convert from the pdf coordinate space to svg where the y-axis is inverted. In the pdf space, the 3x3 transformation matrix is specified as with +ve y upwards: a b 0 c d 0 e f 1 in the svg space : a c e b d f 0 0 1 where y is downwards. I've worked out by trial and error that by negating b & c the conversion is successful so that a -c e -b d f 0 0 1 will make everything work for my conversion. Does anyone know what 3x3 i need to do the negation? and why it is so? From what I understand is to do a flip of y-axis one needs to multiply the matrix by : 1 0 0 0 -1 0 0 0 1 but that doesn't give a -c e -b d f 0 0 1 Or is there something more to a transpose than simply flipping along the diagonal? Thanks so much, Jules
  • 2. Problems printing 'comments' text
    I have recently upgraded from Acrobat 5 to 6 and love most of the improvements, but I used to be able to type on a new document by selecting the Free Text tool and just typing. Firstly, this tool now appears to be called the Text Box tool and is hidden away in Tools/Advanced Editing and behaves differently (I'm still not quite sure how to edit the text properties). I have now discovered that documents I'd created by scanning the original paper form and adding information by using the Free Text tool are useless because the added text won't print! The help files are remarkably unhelpful in this area, but it now appears that this text is treated as 'comments' and is treated differently when it comes to printing. It can only be printed via Print with Comments command and then only in a choice of formats that add numbers, connector lines or print just the 'comments' on their own. Brilliant! What about printing my documents with just the comments as they appear on screen as I used to in Acrobat 5? Is there no way to do this? Does anybody know why Adobe have done this?
  • 3. Attaching files to pdf document
    I want to attach some files to my pdf-document using acrobat 5 and its "Dateianlage-Werkzeug" (in German, i dont know how it is named in english). Everything works fine on my machine. But on any other computer it is not possible to open an attached file. Any ideas what could be wrong? Thanks in advance Dirk
  • 4. Form Management Plugin/program
    Does anybody know about a program (better if Plugin) that performs a "mail merge" function using a master PDF document and a data source, such as a CSV, XLS, TXT, or whatever? For Acrobat Reader or Acrobat. Thank you so much in advance.

Printing a single page document twice on the same page

Postby » Fri, 09 Jun 2006 22:21:51 GMT

I have a single page PDF document that I would like to print twice on
the same page. Example: a small one page flyer that could be printed
off twice on the same page and cut in half to save paper. This is
failrly easy to do with a two page document (just print 2-up). I'd
rather not have to double the size of the pdf by recreating the single
page and making a two page document with duplicate data. Any ideas?

1.replacing single page in A4 document with another page (A3), keeping bookmarks


I made a PDF document using LaTeX (dvi > ps > pdf) with paper format
A4. The appendix of this document should have one big graphic. My idea
is to replace this single page with an A3 landscape pdf page (because
the graphic is too big to recognize something on the A4 page)

But it is important that all the bookmarks remain as they are!

Let's say the original document has 10 pages with bookmarks. Page 8 is
the page to be replaced with the new A3 page (pdf file with one page,
no bookmarks).

I tried pdftk:
pdftk A=docA4.pdf B=docA3.pdf cat A1-7 B A9-10
(merging pages 1-7 of docA4.pdf + page1 of docA3.pdf + pages 9-10 of

Documents have been merged, but bookmarks are lost.

I tried also Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0 but I could only find the
option to append the second document at the end of the first one. But
here the bookmarks are keeped.

Who can help me? Which program/tool to use? Or does Adobe Acrobat have
such option?
Thank you very much!

2.Seperate a single 150 Page PDF into 150 seperate documents


I thought this would be simple, but I'm having problems finding a
solution. I have a 150 page PDF and I simply need to convert it into
150 seperate pages.  I do have full Adobe Professional running on
Windows XP Pro, but short of doing Document > Pages > Split Page 150
times I've found no auto way of doing this.

I've also downloaded PDFTK but I've not seen any example showing what
I'm trying to do, and reading the help hasn't given me any good
starting point.

Any ideas?  I don't plan on spending money on a tool to do this though
I know several exist, but since I have some good (and expensive) tools
already, I hope what I have will do the trick.

Thanks for any suggestions or ideas --

4.Extract page size from a single-page pdf

Hi all,

I'm using PHP (on Windows) to extract data from a bunch of single-page
PDFs. They are created as such and never subsequently edited (so they
were never, for instance, multipage PDFs from which pages were then

What's the simplest way of extracting the page size from these files?
(I'm not particularly fussed about page orientation.)

At present, I'm using a combination of XPDF and pdftk to extract other
information from these files.
