Multimedia in Pdf for Esign

When sending a pdf file with multimedia for eSigning the sound tool icon is disturbed/destroyed when signing is completed.
It has been designed to be floating but small. As soon as the sound icon is clicked the song is playing well but the start/stop tool 'spills' out covering the entire screen.

In terms of Adobe software, the short answer is "no" and the long answer is "wait and see but don't get your hopes up".
The paid-for third party Android app "ezPDF Reader Multimedia" has some support playback of video and sound annotations, but it doesn't cope with Flash or scripting so the experience in a complex interactive PDF is variable to say the least.
In terms of Flash, there will never be integration into the mobile versions of Reader as the runtime isn't distributed to mobile platforms anymore. About half of the JavaScript API calls are technically possible on Android but JS isn't part of the app yet (we have very limited JS API support on iOS right now, but only for forms-related function calls), Direct playback of embedded RMA media streams (MP3 and H.264) is also technically possible on both platforms (as ezPDF demonstrates), but Adobe have chosen not to make it a priority.

    I have learned that there may be an issue with upgrading to 7.0.7, selecting the "reboot later" option, and then trying to use Acrobat with 3D. The suggested procedure is to do the update and then select "reboot now" when asked. Upon rebooting your system, the correct plug-ins are copied into the running Acrobat directories and things should work properly. We will continue to investigate these types of issues with the updater, but I believe this procedure will help fix these types of problems.

  • Pdf for slide shows

    When I create a slideshow in Photoshop Elements .pdf is my preferred file format  to save the show.
    One of the nice features of .pdf for slide shows is the 'fade out /fade in' transition between slides, which has been functioning on my laptop, even if slide changing was set to manual.
    I recently downloaded Acrobat Reader for iPAD. Although slide changing was no problem the 'fade out /fade in' effect was gone. Is there any way I could get it back?

    No transitions and multimedia on Adobe Reader for iOS.

  • Older equivalent of "AICS2-VBScriptGuide.pdf" for Illustrator 10?

    (I asked this question a couple of days ago in the Illustrator Scripting forum but didn't connect with anyone there who could help. It's a question that fits both fora.)
    It has fallen on me to update a departed developer's C++ code for Windows that uses the Visual Basic type library within the Illustrator 10 "ScriptingSupport.aip" plugin. I can see how to make calls from C++ to get Illustrator 10 to draw some graphs from dynamic data.
    But the scripting syntax used by this existing C++ code, which works well in Illustrator 10, doesn't seem to work at all in Illustrator CS2. Certain functions present in the Illustrator 10 "ScriptingSupport.aip" type library seem to be entirely missing in the CS2 version of the same plug-in.
    I can't find any documentation of the older "ScriptingSupport.aip" syntax to compare what the existing code is trying to do against the techniques I might use with CS2's syntax (for which I had no trouble finding documentattion, in the file "AICS2-VBScriptGuide.pdf").
    Alas, the Illustrator Developer Center link for "Download archived Illustrator SDKs" takes me nowhere different than the page on which I selected it, and I've not found any relevant older information by searching the archives.
    Can anyone help me find the older documentation?

    Following up for the record, the older equivalent of "AICS2-VBScriptGuide.pdf" for Illustrator 10 can be found on the Illustrator 10 product CD in "Illustrator Extras/Scripting/Documentation/Illustrator Scripting Guide.pdf" . In the same folder is a document with some VIsual Basic fixes, "Scripting Guide Errata.pdf". Thanks to those who helped me find this!

  • Is there a way to create separate PDFs for each layer in Indesign?

    I have a multi-layered InDesign file, and I would like to generate a PDF for each of the layers. I was able to create a LAYERED PDF file (one PDF page with layers), which is great, but I also need a multi-page PDF page per layer.
    Is there a way to do this? Do I need a script? Or is there a way to extract the separate layers from the layered PDF?
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  • The order of topics in the Project Manager is not reflected when creating a PDF for review.

    Can't seem to find an answer to this in the forums...
    Using RH10.
    In the Project Manager pod is a default 'Project Files' folder.
    Within that I have a 'Topics' folder in which my topic files reside.
    Under the View menu, I have selected 'By Topic Title'. I understand that this displays the topics by their title as opposed to their file name. I understand that this is a display toggle only, and has no relation to the order of the topics - the alternative toggle is 'By File Name'.
    Notice in the image below, my topics are displayed by topic title, but aren't in alphabetical order. ...yet.
    There's a button at the top of this window for changing the sort order to 'Sort by Name', which has the result below.
    Ok, so now the topics are displayed by topic title, and in alphabetical order.
    Question 1: If that button toggles the view to display topics in 'alphabetical order', what on earth is the other order called? It's certainly not in order of file name, as I've checked a bunch of the topic filenames, and can't see any pattern/order to the this structure.
    Question 2: When I go to create a PDF for review (via Review > Create PDF for Review), the window that appears displays all the topics available to me to select for review. However, they're displayed in this other 'odd' sort order instead of 'alphabetical' order. The Help menu says that this window reflects the order of topics as it finds them in the Project Manager. However, what seems to be actually happening is it's displaying the topics based on the view you have selected under the View menu (i.e. either 'View by Topic Title' or 'View by File Name'), and regardless of which view toggle you have selected, the order of the topics is only ever this 'odd' sort order. In other words, in the 'Create PDF for Review' window, it appears I can never see the topic list in alphabetical order. Furthermore, it appears that the only way I can resolve this is to go back into the Project Manager, switch to 'odd' sort order, and manually drag all the topics into alphabetical order. ...I have hundreds of topics.
    Is there some way I can quickly change this 'odd' sort order to 'alphabetical'? There must be some underlying file with this order of topics in it (hopefully).

    Hi there
    I don't have an immediate answer for Question 2, but for Question 1, the topic order is "User Defined" as you are able to click and drag topics to create any arrangement that suits you. This was something added as a result of user feedback. Enough users asked Adobe to allow them to arrange topics this way that they made it a reality. The logic escapes me as I'm a user that normally expects software to list things in either ascending or descending alphabetical order.
    Perhaps Peter will pop in with a nice explanation of the PDF for Review sorting and Adobe's logic behind it.
    Cheers... Rick

  • EPay 8.9 vs 9.0 Payroll for NA - PDFs for Payslips & W2s

    We are on HCM 8.9 & want to implement the ePay but with the PDF files for payslips and W2s which is not included in ver 8.9 but is in 9.0. Is there a way to either just upgrade ePay to 9.0 without an entire HCM upgrade or a way to implement the PDFs for payslips included with Global Payroll but not with Payroll for NA. Additionally, we would like to have the W2s PDFs available to the employees. Any suggestions or guidance is most appreciated.

    The steps in this Adobe TechNote may help:
    Also, look over -
    This page identifies Adobe Reader/Acrobat version interoperability.
    Where the Version interoperability table shows "Allowed" a user is good-to-go.
    Other combinations are problematic.
    Specifically, your co-worker's install of Acrobat 8 / Adobe Reader 9 *will* result in one &/or the other not always exhibiting "design behavior".
    If the individual needs Standard/Pro (Acrobat 8) then their box needs Adobe Reader 8, not 9.
    jmo - but, if features of Acrobat 9 (Portfolios, etc) are used the user would benefit from a step up from Acrobat 8 to Acrobat 9.
    Be well...

  • When saving a document as a PDF for printing, I lose pages, clip art, and my orginal format. Help!

    I have created some forms for our congregation to fill in with answers on adobe forms central. When I go to turn it into a PDF for printing for a hard copy, (not all our members have internet) when i save it to a PDF, it doesn't save all the pages and formats it differently then show on the screen i programmed it onto. How do I fix this issue?

    In the "Feature Tutorials/Help" linked from the top of the main page of the Forums: Feature Tutorials / Help
    There is a Tutorial on "Creating and distributing fillable PDF Forms": Tutorial: Creating and distributing fillable PDF forms
    The main thing to look at is the "View" setting and for PDF set it to "Page View", the page breaks you define in Page View will be used in the PDF, there are also "implicit" page breaks added automatically based on the page size.
    For the issue with clip art see this FAQ: Image does not show up in PDF 

  • Errors in Export to PDF for web use - some images are lost when PDF is enlarged & in browser

    I have a multi-page PDF in InDesign CS6 that I want to export to view on the web. I need the file to stay under 2MB, and I need it to be crisp and nice enough to read the type on the page (as small as 9pt type).
    The errors that are occurring are the following:
    On some browsers, some images will entirely not show up. Some of the missing images have been pasted into the document, some placed. I cannot think of a correlation.
    When the PDF is enlarged (Adobe Acrobat X 10.1.10) to more than ~200%, there is one placed image that will mostly disappear. What I mean by "mostly" is that little bits of it are still visible, like I masked it carelessly or something. Since this is only occurring with one image it seems that it would be a problem with the image itself, yes? I'm all ears if I'm making a mistake. It is a placed .ai file with no link errors. Should I not be placing directly from illustrator? It renders wonderfully from 100% all the way up to 188%, and then if you enlarge by margins of 1% little bits of it disappear, almost a chunk at a time.
    The way I've been exporting is:
    File > Export > Adobe PDF (Print)
    Adobe PDF Preset: Smallest File Size
    Standard: None
    Compatinility: Acrobat 6 (PDF 1.5)
    Options: Optimize for Fast Web View
    Export Layers: Visible & Printable Layers
    I always change the downsampling from [100/150] to [150/225]. I usually leave the JPG image quality low. I leave both bottom boxes checked (compress text and line art, crop image data to frames)
    Color Conversion: convert to destination
    Destination: sRGB 1EC61966-2.1
    Profile Inclusion Policy: Include Destination Profile
    However, after reading a few other forum questions I started trying to export as Acrobat 4 so that it would flatten. When I do that, problem #2 still persists although I didn't test problem #1. I haven't tried using Distiller, and using the "prepare for web publishing" action within Acrobat itself makes the PDF too artifacted.
    At the heart of my question is this: I am a young designer at an old company that is not necessarily keeping up with the times. I REALLY want to know what the best, most efficient way to export a pdf for web viewing is. Does this exist in InDesign, outside of InDesign? Does it exist at all? Tell me what I'm doing wrong so that I can get better!
    Thank you in advance.

    Show Large Images is a preference inside of Acrobat which might be disabled.

  • InDesign - export a PDF for web view and print

    I have a brochure created for print in InDesign. I need to create a PDF for the web, that would be a link to download and print on a home printer. How do I accomplish this?

    export smallest size or take the print PDF in to Acrobat and reduce the size there.

  • Poor image quality in pdf for Aperture book

    Can anyone tell me how to retain the quality of original images when I export to PDF for book production in Aperture?
    I am trying to produce a book with 11 pages, in large soft back format.  Most of the images are black and white, and all are PNGs.  Individual files size are typically 12MB - 20MB, and  the longer side of the images is mostly over 5000 pixels.  They all look very clean and crisp full screen in Aperture, and there are no warning triangles in the page make-ups to highlight any instances of poor resolution.
    I’m producing the PDF, via ‘Print’ > ‘Save as PDF’.  The resulting file is 2.6MB.
    Viewed in Preview, some of the images in the PDF superficially appear to be OK.  Some are not - and are very indistinct.  Zooming in on the images in Preview shows that very few are useable.
    I produced a colour book, with larger pages last year and was very happy with both the PDF and the finished book in print.  Some example file sizes from that one were:  15.3MB (3950x2633) and 9.30MB (2880x 1920).
    I had expected the black and white images to work even better. 
    What am I doing wrong here?
    I'm using Aperture 3.2.1 on a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8.

    I just remade the same book - as a test - in the extra large hardback format (ie. the one I used for the previous publication, last year).
    This time, the pictures are fine.  The images appear to be the same quality in the PDF as the originals - much, much better.  The size of the file has increased massively too > up from just 2.6MB to 52.8MB.
    So does the books production function work well only with the biggest, most expensive option? 
    I'd really appreciate some feedback from anyone who's tried the different sizes, and preferably some brilliant ideas to make them all work equally well.

  • Hairline white line around images in PDF for press

    CS3, Windows XP
    I searched the forum and didn't find this exact question, so..., I place PSD file in ID. When I export to PDF for the press run, I get a thin hairline white box around the photo. It only seems to happen when the placed image is over a gradient. It also only happens on PDF files for press run - either Press Quality or PDF/X-1a:2001. When I export to "Smallest File Size" it looks fine. I have the border of the image set to 0 and the color to None.
    And it only seems to happen sometimes. A month or so ago I created a similar piece using different photos, but the same gradient background and it looked and printed fine.

    The stitching and a grey box was showing up on my press proofs. The printer suggested that I flatten the image before I send it to them.
    Sometimes I see in on screen and sometimes I don't, but my printer says they see it every time and that it will show up on the proof. I've been trying several different PDF exporting options in ID. We are getting the proofs done correctly, but there's only one guy at my printer that can get the file corrected. I'm not sure exactly what he is doing, but one of the people I deal with suggested that he was opening the file in PS, flattening it again, and exporting to PDF, again.
    He's the boss and not alway around, so I'm trying to figure out how I can get file exported correctly.
    Thanks for your help.

  • Saving Illustrator CS4 file to PDF for printing. NO FORUMS CAN HELP

    I have put threads on the PDF forum, they told me to put it on Illustrator forum and still know one has an answer, Tried to contact Adobe about this and just got a run around. Can anyone please help?
    My problem results from when I save my file from Adobe Illustrator to a PDF for printing. After saving from Illustrator to a PDF and proofing it on screen all my gradients and other elements are where I need them to be on the page. But when I upload them to my printing company template all the gradients and so on are not even close to be in the right spot. How can I solve this problem, Is there a new setting in CS4 I need to know? Because I never had this problem with Illustrator CS3.

    Hi Reggie,
    I'm far from an Illustrator expert, but let's see if we can gather som more information form you that might help me, or someone else, figure out what's going wrong. Can you post a screnn capture of the arwork in Illustrator so I can see what the gradients are and how they're positioned? Use the little camera Icon thing in the toolbar above the message editing space on the web page.
    Next, tell us about the printer's template. What application is it made in? What version?
    What version of Illustrator and what OS are you using to create your art?
    Is it only the gradients that are in the wrong place? Maybe a screen shot of that would help too.

  • I have a 2 x spot colour file in Illustrator CC and need to save it as a PDF for printing in spot colour....

    I have a 2 x spot colour file in Illustrator CC and need to save it as a PDF for printing in spot colour, which option do I choose in the 'save as' menu?
    and how do I check it?
    The overprint panel is open and I can turn off the cmyk ( there are no separations for the cmyk anyway)
    Have looked at the tutorials which tell me to print as PDF7 but that utility is disabled and has been for ages.
    it is a simple need but can find no simple information so think I must be missing something!
    Thanks in advance!

    No magic required. You simply save it as PDF-X from AI. If the spot colors are based on correct swatches and tagged accordingly, they will appear as separate inks/ plates in the PDF, which you can verify in the ink manager in Acrobat. That's pretty much all there is to it and the print facility should handle this file correctly.

  • Export in pdf for print inexistant border

    I try to export an Indesign CS5 file in pdf for print.
    If I choose PDF1.4, X-4:2008  I have a dark rectangle like a shadow under several text. I thought it was a transparency problem but I now set up the transparency to High Quality.
    If I choose PDF1.3  I don't have the shadow issue anymore but a white border around the text and images which had been rotated.
    I'm not a specialist in pdf export for print so I don't know what is the best settings and how to fix my issue.
    Can it be only a screen issue and be ok for the print??

    I apologize for not getting to this sooner.
    How are you viewing the PDF that shows the discoloration? Acrobat or some other application? Is overprint preview turned on in Acrobat?
    This is definitely transparency related. When you choose PDF 1.3 you are flattening the transparency and the white lines you see are called "stitching." Thay ae a dispaly artifact in Acrobat (they'll disappear if you turn off smoothing), and though they may show in a low-resolution digital print, they are usually not apparent in high-resolution output from a press.
