  • 2. Imposition hassle in Acrobat Reader
    Hello all, I have had a couple of circumstances recently where I have wanted to print an already-imposed PDF from Acrobat. If I look sequentially through the pages in Reader, they are correctly laid out so that they can be folded into a booklet if printed double-sided (thought I better state that - this is what I understand by the term imposed, so please correct me if this is wrong). Basically the problem is that when I print them from Reader 6.0, it seems to do something 'clever' and they come out with the pages upside-down and out of sequence in a way which is complex, confusing and difficult to describe... I'm not selecting any fancy options (just setting double-sided printing in the Printer Preferences) and there don't seem to be any booklet options or any plug-ins that deal with imposition on my system. Do I somehow need to 'tell' acrobat that these are already imposed? Anyone seen this or have any tips or insights? (Reader 6.0 on 2000 Pro) Cheers, cam

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.
