Re: Sticky note lines missing

Thanks Stefan.
Presumably since the line is shown when the mouse hovers over the sticky note, it shouldn't be difficult to enable it to be printed.
Please add to your feature request list, as a user selected option.
After all, PDFXchange shouldn't be limited to what Adobe does, or doesn't ;)
Thanks.

Sticky note lines missing

When adding sticky notes to pdfs, the icon is linked to the note with a line. However, when the focus is moved away from the note, the line disappears. Likewise, it is also missing when the document is printed. This is the default behaviour (and is identical to Adobe Reader) but with a large number ...

Re: Can not flatten header, footer, or watermark?

One workaround I've found for this is to print the document to a pdf. This is much better than making an image, because text stays as text, and file size does not bloat significantly... Unfortunately, this method appears to convert the document text above a watermark to an embedded image. Since the...

Re: Selecting many textboxes together

Re: Selecting many textboxes together

This is still a problem for normal objects (rather than comment boxes) since their are no corresponding options to "bring to front" or "send to back".

Re: Bug report: Problem pdf'ing EPS graphics in MSWord

Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately, it means that PDFXchange is unsuitable for pdf'ing most of our documents, since many of them contain embedded EPS objects.

PNG or JPG formats are not an alternative as they bitmap formats rather than vector, and pixellate when enlarged.
