Re: Forms

Formatted fields still do not appear correctly when form data is imported in latest version. Field is formatted correctly only if it is a calculated one.

Re: Scanned Files

Thank you for taking the time to investigate. If they were all just 7 pages long it would not really matter much, but sometimes they are 90 pages or more. I sometimes get them in here with as much as 240 pages, but those ones to be regular pdf’s, not the scanned ones. I have another scanned one sent...

Re: Scanned Files

Yes it is. Smoother and faster. I wish it was faster on some scanned pdf's. Some of them seem faster than others, I don't know why. But, I believe it is because of the slowness of my machine. Update Tried opening the file on a faster computer - Celeron 3.2 ghz, 896 mb of RAM. Video card ATI Radeon E...

Re: Scanned Files

I decided to try it out in a few viewers just for kicks - PDFX, Acrobat 6, and I downloaded Nitro 6 Professional, and Foxit. PDFX and Acrobat were similar, and seemed to render the pages and hold them in memory so that scrolling through the pages after the initial delay was good. PDFX seemed to rend...

Re: Scanned Files

I will compare with some other browsers, and see if there is a difference and post back the results. I get a lot of specifications sent to me and a good percentage of them are just scanned in. The ones that are not work beautifully. PDFX seems to be faster than Acrobat if I am looking at architectur...

Scanned Files

PDFX Viewer is for the most part pretty fast even on my old computer. It is an Intel Celeron 764 mhz, 512 mb of ram, windows xp sp3. Graphics are just on-board graphics using up to 8 mb of RAM I think. Certain scanned files that I receive are very slow though. I have extracted only 2 pages for you t...

Restating A Form Problem

I posted on this before, but I do not think I made myself clear about just what was happening. Besides, the other form that exhibited this had much bigger fonts, and graphic text running vertically. This is just a form I use regularly, but they then want it printed out and faxed to them! I printed i...

Re: Print Problem Example

Thank you. I think I have it now. Embed the fonts and leave the Advanced option at it's default setting - "For embedded fonts only". Seems to work.

Re: Print Problem Example

May have spoke too soon. I re-did the pdf file with fonts embedded from the xls file from earlier today (09-086a.pdf) and printed it. Got a couple of crazy print-outs. You probably already know exactly what is wrong anyway. Please see attached. Thanks.

Re: Print Problem Example

Ivan, I fiddled with it some more over here and the problem seems to go away if the fonts are Embedded Subsets. This made me wonder how the Form I sent with the same problem handled the fonts. I have attached the file again for you to see. It seems some of the fonts are embedded, and some are not. I...

Print Problem Example

Tried to print pdf file (09-086.pdf) from original Excel worksheet (Aramsco.xls) and spacing is off as per previous post. I scanned in print-out and marked some places up (09-086 Scan.pdf). Windows XP sp3, Brother HL - 5140. Problem may be here, but I don't believe so as it prints fine with Acrobat ...

Shortcuts & Stamps

I tried to assign a shortcut key to File > Form Data > Export Data from Form, and it does not seem to work. Same with Import Data from Form. Tried using the same shortcut with another menu item, and it worked okay. Used Shift I and it showed no conflicts. At some point please put Reset Form on the m...

Printing Multiple Pages Per Sheet

I tried to print a pdf 2 pages to a sheet with borders. I set it to print borders, and the border on the left side is cut off. Looks fine in print preview. Printer is Brother HL-5140 laser printer with margins of .25" all around. May be related to my post yesterday re forms & printing. It also appea...

Forms & Printing

I have attached a form that I just converted to pdf. The tab key moves between fields, but the enter key does not enter typed info and deselect the field. On the last field, pressing enter does nothing, and the highlighting does not return to the field if the document is selected with the hand tool....

I added it to my post "Measuring Tolls" from a couple of days ago. The screenshot is zipped there. Will stop bothering you for now. Thank you.

Re: Forms

Thank you. It is a great program. I use forms some and want to do more and I want to measure architectural drawings in the viewer from now on, and stop wasting paper! Did you see my addition to my post with the screenshot on the measuring tools? I paid for the Pro version the day after I first downl...

Yes. I am using it. Undo feature is excellent. Had to move pages between files yesterday. Used drag and drop for the first time and it works very well! Thanks.

Re: Forms

Here it is. Originally created by the County using LiveCycle Designer from an Excel spreadsheet I think. I found a way to get it to work in Acrobat 5 as it was a version 7 file originally. I fixed some of the errors in fields and added the 4 buttons top right. Exporting and importing works fine in a...

Forms

Formatted form fields do not seem to work when data is imported, unless the field is a calculated field. Formatting works fine if numbers are entered directly in field. If file is saved instead of data being exported everything is okay also when it is re-opened. Applies to numbers x,xxx and to telep...

Re: Measuring Tools

Thank you so much for all the answers. With regard to the orthographic lines, I meant would it be possible to set it that way and leave it so you can just keep measuring? I had figured out about the shift key. About the other problem I noted. Here is a screen shot of a drawing. Measuring toolbar dis...

Measuring Tools

In the latest beta version if I point at and select a distance measurement it seems to stay selected even if I deselect it. The info box stays on the screen also. You cannot point to it again as only the move icon shows as it is still selected I believe. I do not think it was like this before, but I...
