IAttachment api question for PDF Portfolios

I have been working on a custom portfolio for a while now and have a pretty good understanding of most of the new feature.  I am currently have a problem though where i drill down into a folder and want to play the videos that are in said folder.  I can always launch the preview in a stand alone mode but that neither looks good or is what my client is looking for.  I want to be able to play the .flv or .swf through a media player embedded on my display (pretty much the rotate view but with playable movies instead of thumbnails).  The problem is that I have not been able to access my movie attachments.  The IAttachment class comes with a path property that describes itself to be a string path to the file I am trying to play.  Naturally I assumed I could do something like (say the file is a swf) binding the source property of a SWFLoader to attachment.path and call it a day.  This is unfortunately far from the case.  I am not if it has something to do with the path being broken or not but thats what i assume.  I also find it interesting that the fileName property is supposed to be the last portion of the path property but no matter where my file is located (root or in a sub folder) the path is always the same as the fileName.  Bug or a simple misunderstanding?  Hopefully an adobe guru can help me with this one.

What about the forums under the list What do you need help with?

  • How do I create a welcome page for PDF portfolio in Acrobat X?

    When making portfolios in v9 i was able to add a welcome page to my PDF portfolio. However, since I upgraded I am no longer able to locate this fucntion. Does it still exist and if so how do i access it? If it doesn't exist can anyone explain to me why Adobe would think it wasn't a relevant feature and disable it in vX?

    You need to setup a script to handle this for you.  Typically most people do this with a solution like CPanels Web Host Manager.  But it depends on your server environment what you would use.

    Hi,
    There are services in Content Server that will allow you to create revisions of existing items. For example, CHECKIN_UNIVERSAL service will check in a new revision of an item if that Content ID already exists. You can also checkout a document if needed using the CHECKOUT service. Please refer to the services reference guide for more details (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/doc.1111/e11011/toc.htm).
    Regarding conversion and watermarking...
    You don't have to call a service to convert or watermark a document. These features have to be configured on the server. If you configure the content server to convert Word documents to PDF, then whenever a Word document is checked in, the content server will automatically convert it to PDF. In addition, if you have PDFWatermarking enabled and configured, watermarks will be applied automatically as well. All you have to do is ensure the product is configured correctly for the formats you want, and then check in the document. When you retrieve a document (using the GET_FILE service for example), you can ask for the PDF version by passing additional parameters.
    Please review the Application Administrators Guide (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/doc.1111/e10978/toc.htm) for info on enabling and configuring PDF Watermarking.
    The doc links referenced above are for UCM 11g. The same docs are available for 10gR3 at http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E10316_01/ouc.htm.

  • ConvertPDF :: toImage for PDF portfolio

    Can we convert all pages within a PDF portfolio by using ConvertPDF's toImage at once?
    Or do we have to get each file from the portfolio first, then invoke toImage against each sub-files?
    Thx,
    Keishichi

    Anything under 5MB is okay more or less. The main issue is how fast it will load on the receiving end. You may want to upload an swf file to your server and then email a link to it. It will load fast and turn pages faster. I've done it both ways. PDF and SWF link.

    is not working it wont show the other 2 images I want to add.
    the code is below so anyone can see and hopefully someone can tell me what I did wrong or forgott to add
    My second thing Im stuck in is,  right under the slider images is another section which is ( ABOUT ) which shows 3 square images and 3 square content boxes
    now as you have it in split view in dreweaver everything is fine all 6 sqaures but as soon you do Live test in dreamweaver or even drag your index.html to a browser
    the 1st image and the content box with the 1st image does not show up but the est shows up just fine.  Everything looks good in the codeing in dreaweaver nothing is missing.

    1. I think that's normal. Both the clicking noises and the song switching delay happen with my 60Gb.
    2. You probably have some songs that are not compatible with the iPod, or you some songs on the iTunes that have some problem (have that exclamation point on the left side).
    Nothing to worry, you can rest easy.

  • Ideal size for pdf portfolio?

  • Does Digital Editions support PDF Portfolios?

    I guess the answer is "no" but does Adobe Digital Editions offer any support for PDF Portfolios?

    I put this in another post, I am not trying to spam.  I have spent too much time frustrated with this ADE problem that I just want to make sure others get the message...
    Here is a plan that works.  I just did it on my Nook HD+.  It requires a Dropbox account which is free and easy to set up.
    1. Install Dropbox on your Nook HD.
    2. On your computer or other device, put the .epub file for your book in a Dropbox folder.
    3. Open the .epub file on your Nook HD.
    4. Read and enjoy.
    (It may prompt you to select which reader you want to use in step 3.  Since I have the Books a Million reader on mine, it asked if I wanted to use that or the generic reader.  Both worked to open the book.)

  • PDF portfolio search not working in Reader for Linux

    I have a PDF portfolio with embedded index created using Acrobat 9.5.5 running on Windows 7. I can search this portfolio without any problem using the windows versions of Acrobat 9.5.5 or Reader 11.0.4, but when I try any of the same searches using Reader 9.5.5 for Unix on Ubuntu 13.10, the searchs never terminate. The search window appears, but the spinning circle at top right of the search window just keeps spinning and no results ever appear. I've left it for half an hour without any results appearing. The same searches on Windows complete in a few seconds.
    The portfolio in question is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rzh9t1oo0vx2ib/lilydoc-2.17.29.pdf (it's created from the various PDF manuals that make up the Lilypond documentation).

    Hmm. Sounds like something went wrong with the links. Are they spelled out (using http://www....etc) or are they hyperlinks? If they are spelled out, you could have your version of Reader set to recognize links and they may not (Edit>Preferences>General>Basic tools - Create links from URLs).
    To create links in ID, highlight the text, go to your hyperlinks pallet and in the drop-down select "New link" and fill in the appropriate information. Then when you export it to PDF from ID, in the "General" settings section under "include" select "Hyperlinks".
    There are other options you may want to be aware of but that's better asked about in the ID forum.

  • Unable to open PDF portfolio (Error Msg: "For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in...)

    I am having a problem opening an important PDF portfolio document using Adobe Reader (version 11.0.02) for Mac (Mountain Lion version 10.8.3).
    When I attempt to open the file, I come up with the error message: "For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later", and I am unable to view the document. This is becoming very frustrating, as I am attempting to open the document with the new version of Adobe Reader (which I have downloaded multiple times).
    If anyone has a solution for this problem that would be very helpful!
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply. No I'm not using iPad, I have a MacBookPro. I just wasn't sure which forum was best to post this question in.
    I have flash but Adobe still won't open my documents.
    Anyway, thanks for your help.

  • For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Read

    Hi,
    For the first time I am aware of a user has received a PDF that cannot be opened in Preview.
    The pdf opens to a splash screen showing, "For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later." There is a large button showing " Get Adobe Reader 9"
    It is a 15Mb document but we cannot get beyond the splash screen in Preview so I have had to install Reader 9 for the user.
    Turns out the document is a very basic slideshow. It seems this is a new (to me) format of PDF which forces users to install Reader.
    Is there any way these image portfolios can be opened within Preview so I don't have to install Adobe Reader bloatware again?
    Thanks,
    b .

    Is there any way these image portfolios can be opened within Preview so I don't have to install Adobe Reader bloatware again?
    I doubt it, but perhaps others have better info...
    You can ask Apple to expand Preview's capabilities here:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
    Personally I have never found Preview to be a complete substitute for Adobe Reader and always have both on my machine to deal with pdfs, which have a large number of possible variations in terms of version, features, and encodings.

  • Acrobat XI on Win8.1 asks for Flash to create a Pdf Portfolio?

    I've been running Acrobat X for a year or so and have created many pdf portfolios, but recently installed a trial version of Acrobat XI on my Windows 8.1 PC.  I then tried to create a portfolio from scratch, selected the files and got a message "To view the Flash technology content in this PDF file, please install this version of Flash Player that supports Adobe Reader and Acrobat." 
    The Flash Installer link nor the ActiveX link will download for me and when I read further I find out that Win8.1 already includes Flash built in.  I go to the Flash test page and it tells me I have the latest Flash version installed.  I also do the Internet Explorer recommended checks (Shockwave, ActiveX filtering), all to no avail.  I don't know what else to try?  Any thoughts... 

    When I click on the “Plugin” and select “Save As” I try to save to my Desktop the File name: install_flash_player_exe.  The yellow bar at the bottom immediately says “ install_flash_player_exe couldn’t be downloaded.”  I try the “Retry” button multiple times to no avail.  I then select the “View downloads” button and it shows that it only downloaded 254 bytes of said file from the site “fpdownload.macromedia.com” and the message “This file couldn’t be downloaded.”

  • PDF Portfolio Search for keywords

    Hello all,
    I am trying to find out how you can search a pdf portfolio for keywords that I have added into pdf documents.
    I have added the keywords through the document properties window.
    It seems odd to be able to add keywords if you can't search for them - any help greatly appreciated
    Thanks
    Matt

    Thanks, what a bummer . I was hoping for a fix or a freeware solution :P.
    Is there a way to notify Apple about this? Keywords seem poorly designed, or at least not thought through, compared to other programs.

  • Can you create a table of contents for the documents within a PDF Portfolio?

    If I create a pdf portfolio that contains multiple documents (e.g. Word, multiple PDFs and Excel documents), is there a way to create a table of contents at the beginning of the portfolio to help navigate to the individual documents?

    Hi,
    The Files list displays a list of files, so the user can quickly see all the files in the portfolio with any information you want to share; title, description, file type, size etc.
    Or, you can also use a different layout, for example, the Linear and use the space next to each file to describe it.
    Hope this helps.......
