  • 1. Retain PS file from PDFMaker
    I've got Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional, with PDFMaker installed in Microsoft Word 2003. Is there a way to generate a .ps file that can then be manipulated before converting to PDF. I gather that past versions of PDFMaker had a setting called something like "retain PS and LOG files." Also, my understanding is that what PDFMaker does in the background is create a .ps file and then call on Distiller to convert that to PDF. Does PDFMaker really create a *.ps file? Where does that file get stored and how can I grab it/retain it? Thanks
  • 2. Last bytes in PDF?
    Hello all, I am hoping that someone knowledgeable about the PDF spec can help me figure out a weirdness here. I received two copies of a pdf file that are supposed to be identical. But one of them is one byte larger than the other. I put both files in a hex editor and the cause seems to be that one of the files ends in the ASCII value "EOF" while the other ends in "EOF." The larger file has a period (0x0D) character that the other file does not. Which file should be correct according to the spec? Or, if they are both valid, what is the significance of the last 0x0D character?
  • 3. not quite an N-up problem
    I've got a pdf file of a deck of cards. It prints four cards to a portrait page, with a lot of white space around them. I'd like to print eight cards to a landscape page, with minimal white space around them, thus saving both trees and time spent cutting card stock. The individual cards consist of an image, which pdfimage extracts quite nicely, and some overlaid text, which pdftotext doesn't handle nearly as well. Still, I could re-create each card by hand if I needed to. But what I'd really like is a tool that would let me indicate rectangular areas and both move and rescale them around the page. And, yes, this is a personal project, so funding is extremely limited.
  • 4. Distiller v5.0 - PDF 7 EBook?
    I ahve Distiller v5 and want to make a simple ebook from a word document. Is there any tools that allow me to take the PDF created from Distiller v5 and add the restricted rights in Acrobat 7 (e.g. no copy /paste, print 3 x per annum etc)? All suggestions appreciated. Thanks. Steve
  • 5. viewing pdfs in mozilla with acroread 7.0
    WHen I'm surfing around and viewing pdf files, sometimes I can view the pdf in mozilla and other times I just get a blank screen. I can see the file being downloaded but nothing shows up. If I save the page and then view the file using acroread it looks fine. Does anyone have any ideas about why? <environment> redhat 9.0, mozilla 1.7.3, acroread 7.0</environment> Al

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.
