Need Acrobat Pro to assemble master PDF from dissimilar sized PDF's?

I have a need to create a master PDF (portfolio) from other PDF's, with the master PDF containing Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and different size CAD drawings already converted into PDF's.  Do I need Acrobat Pro to manage the dissimilar sized documents, or is Acrobat Standard sufficient.
Other question - to annotate the master PDF with highlighting, emphasis boxes around key information, and text boxes, I assume both Acrobat Standard and Pro have the same capabilities.
Correct?
Thanks for everyone's help.

To create PDF portfolio, you would require Acrobat X PRO, this feature is not available in Std. Version. For more details, please see Acrobat X product comparison matrix.

For your second questions, "Yes" Acrobat Std. is sufficient.
Please let me know, if you have any further questions.
Regards,

  • Embedding video in PDF, keeps says it cant convert and need Acrobat Pro Extended?

    I have Acrobat Pro 9 and with using the tool to embed video which seems to convert to a flash format, it keeps coming back saying its unable to convert and that I would need Acrobat Pro Extended.  I tried a handfull of different video types and every one that I chose gave me the same message.  All it will seem to do is somehow link to the video whcih will use the viewer installed on that persons computer to run.  It seems to give you the ability to convert video over but it doesnt let you for anything you choose, what am I doing wrong?
    I have Acrobat Pro 9 Extended at work which I tried the same thing with and of course, that worked.  Is the Extended part by any chance just a patch for Pro 9 or is it a totally different purchase?

    Looks like the following general observations apply.
    If the multmedia file(s) meet the identified requirements for Professional it is "in".
    If the multimedia file(s) do not, then conversion is required - but conversion is only available in Pro Extended.
    That you get a "need conversion" message, from Pro that would be indicative of an input that does not meet the specified requirements for direct use in Pro.
    An alternative might be to try "Create Legacy ..."
    Legacy multimedia will rely on the end-user having the appropriate player application installed.

  • Cannot update Acrobat Pro to 9.3.2 from 9.3.1

    I am attempting to update Acrobat Pro to 9.3.2 from 9.3.1. Downloading the update, I am met with this:
    The patch has failed because the application has been modified since it was originally installed (for example, plug-ins may have been disabled). 
    Please go to the Adobe support website for more information regarding how to re-enable disabled components prior to installing the patch.  Or, you can uninstall and reinstall the application, and then reinstall the patch.
    Where do I find this "information" on the Adobe website? If Vague is an island, Abobe must be on it.
    Any solutions others have found?
    Uninstall and reinstall is a solution? Been down this road 16 months ago and it was a full afternoon on the phone with tech support in India. If this is the only solution offered, I am fine at the current crap unsafe version from Adobe. Unless of course Adobe is prepared to pay me for my time.

    I am a sys admin and have always had problems with Acrobat for many many year. I have spent 3 hours on the phone with tech support. Pushed out a new build with nothing else on except the base OS and still fails in the update and tried everything and yes im not a standard user, this is my job i build macs day in day out in 30 minutes flat, scripting, packaging the lot.
    You can see in the log it tries to download an update with an incorrect url http:/ when it should be http:// this is really terrible and just shows there is no UAT at all. Yesterday another tech support just told me for another full suite that just dragging the apps to the Trash is a normal uninstall method. The tech support guy today told me Acrobat comes with all CS5 product  but thats incorrect because it doesn't come with Production Premium!
    Adobe i believe your Acrobat team is separate from other teams and i understand why you have had to break it off from the suite but  come on this has been going on for so many years now its beyond a joke. You should fix it once and for all or at least get version x working with combined updaters like other vendor and offer free upgrades from 9 to 10.
    What is the point going on about all these extra features and security fixes if no one can even update the product! Spend hours on the phone with untrained staff with poor product knowledge and waste every ones time because i am a very experienced sys admin and get sick to death of Acrobat updates which rarely ever work!
    Also the system requirements for the update only goes to OS 10.6.3 and even the latest 9.4.1 only goes to OS 10.6.4 So even if every one can some how get i working its not even going to work on a 10.6.5 OS... pathetic so stuck no one listening, tech support don't listen. We just need an alternative good competitor then i am not buying or dealing with Adobe ever again!

    Hi Frans van Meeuwen,
    Do I understand correctly that you have a printed PDF and want to get it back on your computer as a PDF file? If so, you could scan that document, save it as an image file, then use Acrobat or Adobe PDF Pack to convert the scanned file to PDF.  Some scanning software saves directly to PDF, and if you don't have a scanner, I'm sure you could have it done at a local copy shop.
    I hope that helps.
    Best,
    Sara

  • When printing to PDF from webpage, the pdf is compressed on the bottom of each page and markedly smaller print. How do I correct this?

    When printing to PDF from webpage, the pdf is compressed on the bottom of each page and with markedly smaller print, the top of the page is fine. How do I correct this?

    Open Contacts and click Preferences on the menu named Contacts. On the General tab of the Preferences window, select Show First Name: Before Last Name and then print. You can change that Preference back to the other way after printing if desired.

  • PDF Gen need Acrobat pro extended

    Hi all,
    I think I once heard that Adobe Acrobat Pro was enough for PDF Generator. When I config LC ES2 I get warnings in configuration.
    Does LC ES2 require Acrobat Pro Extended? Can it work without?
    How does I most easily update it now LC ES2 is up and running?

  • Help Needed:  Acrobat Pro XI - Reduced Sized PDF vs. Optimized PDF

    Hopefully some of you folks can help me, as I cannot get in touch with Adobe customer service.  I recently upgraded to Acrobat Pro XI.  In my old version of Acrobat Pro, I used to be able to take a PDF file of large size (let's say 10 MB) and shrink it down considerably with relative ease (down to less than 1 MB).  The file could then be easily emailed, shared, read, and most importantly wouldn't take up tons of hard drive space.  With this new version of Acrobat Pro XI, that same 10 MB file barely reduces down to 7 or 8 MB.  I have played with the various settings in both the File -> Save As Other -> Reduced Sized PDF and File -> Save As Other -> Optimized PDF.  Regardless of what I try, I cannot achieve anywhere near the same compression results as what I used to be able to achieve with my old version of Pro.  I can get the file size reduced, but the reduced file quality is trash.
    Has anyone else encountered this problem as well?  Do any of you have any suggestions on what to do to fix??  I primarily scan a document as a PDF file with my HP OfficeJet Pro, and then reduce the PDF file size after the scan.  I could scan the document with lower DPI to begin with (currently scan 300 dpi typically grayscale), but then I don't have the scanned image quality that I need to reduce the file down so that it can be reprinted later at a good enough quality. 

    I had previously ran the audit, and 99% + of my bloat is in the image.  All of the other possibilities for bloat do not even add up to 1%.  For my purposes as a Financial Advisor, I print out blank applications & account forms, fill out the paperwork by hand, and then scan copies of the completed paperwork back into my computer for electronic filing.  Some of these completed client documents can be 50 to 75 pages long ... so the PDF scanned at 300 dpi obviously starts out as a substantially sized document that can take up 25, 35, or 45 MB per scan.  The crazy thing is that the old version of Acrobat Pro (I believe it was version 7 or 8) would take a 45 MB file and compress it down almost to 1/10th of the oiginal size.  As a result, a 45 MB file would end up as a 4.5 MB file.  This significant reduction was always accomplished using the one button selection "Reduce PDF" command ... had nothing to do with optimizing the PDF with the old version.  Once I ended up with the 4.5 MB file, I could open that file at a later date and print out a page that I needed and you couldn't hardly tell if it was the original or a scanned copy.  There was no loss of quality whatsoever!!  The Reduce PDF size in Acrobat XI just doesn't work well ... will take that 45 MB file and reduce it down to 42 MB which defeats the whole purpose of the Reduce PDF command in the first place.  If I play around with the inputs in the Optimze PDF, I can shrink the file size lower but lose way too much image quality.  The only variable that has changed from my old scanning results vs. my new scanning results is the upgrade from Acrobat Pro 7 to Acrobat Pro XI ... everything else that I'm doing is the exact same.  Same thing applies when I create a PDF portfolio from multiple PDF documents ... a 150 MB PDF Portfolio will barely reduce in file size. 

  • Adobe Acrobat Pro X Crashes when Trying to Scan to PDF - Epson Perfection v30 on Windows 7

    We have 8 machines with Acrobat and this Printer, and I am able to repeat this with each system.
    Does anybody have any ideas? Is anybody using the Epson Perfection v30 scanner?

    Any ideas?   there was an update on adobe dated 2/25/13.   Perhaps if I uninstall it?   I need advice on how to uninstall. When I view updates and click on it, and then click uninstall, it goes back to the Program Screen, in Control, for all programs. Then do I click on Acrobat and Uninstall?  I am nervous about doing this. Thanks

  • Acrobat Pro XI . converting of excel and word to pdf

    After installing Acrobat Pro XI two days ago, the conversions of excel and word to pdf are less than optimal.  Poor fonts, color and sometimes blurry.

    That's very kind of you Bill.
    Since my last forum post I have uninstalled Acrobat Pro, - with its updates - and reinstalled the original from disk. The conversion from Word 2007 to PDF is working fine. And that was where I was prepared to leave it. Of course any updates would not be possible.
    However, since you have offered to help, I'd be most grateful of any assistance.
    To answer your question, the usual way I create PDF files from Word is from within the open Word program. From there I can simply 'Save As' to PDF format.
    That's the way MS says to do it. Is there another way? The updates stop this working. The process begins but then stops part way through and dies. No pdf file is created.
    I'm not familiar with the print to file option. I had a look at print options from within Word but no mention of any PDF Maker although Adobe PDF is listed as a printer. However, if I try to print to Adobe PDF I get an error saying there is an error in the printer setup.
    With thanks
    Robert

  • I have payed for Adobe acrobat pro but now i can not convert a pdf document to a word format, why?

    I have payed for Adobe acrobat pro for one year and it is valid to november 2015, but now i can not convert a pdf document to a word format, why ?

    Hi m_karhulinna,
    If you have Acrobat Pro, you can save directly to Word format from within Acrobat by choosing File > Save as Other > Microsoft Word > Word Document.
    (It sounds like you may be trying to use the ExportPDF online service, which is separate from Acrobat, and not necessary in your case.)
    Best,
    Sara
