Prevent PDFs Opening in Web Browser

Array ( [post_title] => Prevent PDFs Opening in Web Browser [post_content] =>

If you build interactive PDFs with features such as videos that play in floating windows, you’ll find that those components don’t play correctly—or at all—when the PDF is viewed in a browser. To view such PDFs correctly, the recipient must use Acrobat Pro or Adobe Reader instead.

Of course, a user can set their own preferences to control this, but the designer who asked me about this has no control over how users open his PDFs; that’s one of the issues we all face with PDFs—we send them out to uncertain destinies.

Holy Crop! How to REALLY crop a PDF

NOTE: Please read the comments, as well as my “Later Notes” at the end of this post. While this post and the solutions offered by commenters all provide improved methods for cropping PDFs, there are still some catches.
===========================

If you’ve ever used the Crop tool in Acrobat, you’ve probably discovered that it doesn’t really crop: it just masks out content. Other applications may ignore the mask and reveal the stuff you were trying to delete. And since content is not deleted, there’s no reduction in file size.

Look Sharp: Handling Text and Vector Content in Photoshop

Why Acrobat’s Auto-Recognize Feature Isn’t Always the Solution: Making Matrices of Fields

Array ( [post_title] => Why Acrobat’s Auto-Recognize Feature Isn’t Always the Solution: Making Matrices of Fields [post_content] =>

The forms auto-recognition feature in Acrobat X Pro is powerful and fast — it creates form fields based on elements in the PDF (such as lines, boxes, circles, etc.), and names them according to nearby text. While you often have to tweak the results  — for example, creating fields it missed, renaming fields with paragraph-long names — it can be a timesaver. So why wouldn’t you always use it?

Acrobat Zoom Shortcut (there’s a trick to it)

Array ( [post_title] => Acrobat Zoom Shortcut (there’s a trick to it) [post_content] =>

If you’re a longtime user of Adobe products, you’re probably accustomed to using Command-Spacebar (PC: Control-Spacebar) to zoom in. It works in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and other apps.

But it seems (initially) to be broken in Acrobat X. Since you’re already traumatized by the radically-changed interface in Acrobat X, you may just assume that the old zoom shortcut is broken. You press Command+Spacebar, and nothing happens. You just figure, well, it was fun while it lasted.

All is not lost, however; you just have to use a bit of finesse. It’s a one-two punch: press and hold the Spacebar first, (Read more...)
