Re: Feature req: Hand + Select tool SOLVED

My favorite handling is the one used by Photoshop and other graphics/ image/ DTP tools: You hold down the space bar to drag/pan the canvas with the mouse. Releasing the space bar toggles back to whatever tool you had been using before that.

Re: Devious Editor Updates? SOLVED

I was hoping for this to be some kind of bug or misunderstanding. But now as it turns out to be intended behavior, I find this policy rather unsettling. If I purchase software, I do not expect that after a certain "maintenance" program expires, that the documents I produce will now have watermarks o...

Re: Adding Page Number to the PDF file

What's wrong my xChange PDF Editor? Anyone face the similar case before? Unfortunately yes, and the way I solved it was like this: In the dialog "Setup Pages Range" you don't just select "Odd pages only" from the dropdown at the very bottom, but in the field directly above it you also enter all odd...

Re: adding command to user defined toolbar crashes program

Just for the record - I had the same problem:

The only way to work around it, was to modify an existing built-in toolbar instead of creating a new user toolbar.

I am disappointed in the admins' handling of affairs. People like bqxmprij who have nothing to contribute other than insulting and ridiculing other users and their very legitimate inquiries - in a decent forum such postings are removed immediately and the poster reprimanded.

I don't understand how layers are supposed to work. They don't seem be doing anything.
What I had in mind was grouping comments and objects on stacked layers, to hide them selectively. Is there a way to achieve this?

Thanks Willy, not a bad solution, really. It had not occured to me that the Editor might remember the (un)folded state of each of those roll-downs beause the viewer always drills down everything. But as it turns out, the editor does indeed keep the last used setting between sessions. So yes, I can l...

Thank you Will, all my issues refer to PDF-XChange Editor 5.5 (Build 312.1) The About box does not say whether it's 32 or 64.

Hiding built-in stamps

How do you hide the built-in stamps from the toolbar dropdown?
I know how to do it in portable viewer 2.5 - there it's a simple checkbox that can be turned On or Off. But I cannot find a way to do it in the Editor?

Re: Editor toolbars too big for laptop screen

Very interesting thread. Great tip to put properties on the same line with the menu. Hiding the menu makes this even more effective. I also second the wish for an option to hide captions. Either when shrinking the toolbar to less vertical space, or ideally, on a one-by-one basis, similar to the view...

Re: Merging alternate pages

Thank you Patrick,

Unfortunately the scanning is done elsewhere, on a standalone machine that's not hooked up to any computer. We just get the PDF's on a USB stick.

Is there anything else we could do on the combining side, when merging the PDFs, to speed up the manual workflow?
