Need help with saving file for printer

I am using Acrobat 9. I have a document with four pages. I need to save it in two files-- one file with p. 4 and 1 side by side to print on 11 x 17 paper, and the other file with p. 2 and 3 the same. The person printing does not have Acrobat so the pdf itself has to be formatted this way so they can print it. I can rearrange the pages, delete pages, and so forth, but I cannot get them to display side by side except in a "view" option.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks could remember that for nothing

  • Help with exporting file for print

    I'm trying to print a banner through Spoonflower (a site that lets you print on fabric). They recommend an RGB, 150dpi file. (max 58" wide x 288" long, 40MB) and accept a wide variety of file types (ai, svg, eps, tif, png, jpeg).
    My banner is rather large, at 50" wide x 236" long. The artwork was created in Illustrator, and consists of 2 colors with flat, line illustrations; no gradients, linked files, etc. File is about 1 MB. Because of Illustrator's canvas size limitations (227.5"), I set up my final artwork at half size (25" x 118" @ 300dpi) with the intention of scaling it in Photoshop to full size @ 150dpi.
    Unfortunately, when I try to open the AI, EPS or PDF file directly in Photoshop, it compresses the artwork to 22.6" x 106.67" (from 25" x 118" - no idea why) and this throws off the layout of the banner, which is designed to fit a very specific framework. It means my artwork, when at 150dpi, is only 45" wide (I need it to be 50").
    Next I tried exporting as a jpeg but keep getting the following error: 'The file could not be written due to error.'
    When trying to export to PNG, I get this error: 'Could not complete the operation. The rasterized imag exceeded the maximum bounds for saving to the PNG format'.
    I am at a total loss for how to proceed and would be so terribly appreciative if anyone could provide some insight...perhaps how to prevent the files from shrinking when rasterized by PS, how to actually save as a jpeg, png, or just a better way to go about this whole process altogether. What am I missing??
    And of course, I needed to send this to the printer today to meet deadline...sigh.

    If the site accepts .ai or .eps files why are you trying to move to a raster format at all?

  • Need help with Manifest file for jar

    I am creating an executable jar for a document management application. In the manifest file there is a Class-Path setting. I will be running this app in multiple environments and I want this Class-Path setting to read from the machines classpath. How do I do it? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Before you Jared your classes, did the classes work?
    One possible solution would be to include the classes you're using within the Jar itself. But before you do that, I would re-read the Licence agreement for those classes.

  • Need help with connecting file inputs to arrays

    In this assignment I have a program that will do the following: display a list of names inputed by the user in reverse order, display any names that begin with M or m, and display any names with 5 or more letters. This is all done with arrays.
    That was the fun part. The next part requires me to take the names from a Notepad file, them through the arrays and then output them to a second Notepad file.
    Here is the original program: (view in full screen so that the code doesn't get jumbled)
    import*;       //Imports the Java library
    class progB                    //Defines class
        public static void main (String[] arguments) throws IOException
            BufferedReader keyboard;                                  //<-
            InputStreamReader reader;                                 //  Allows the program to
            reader = new InputStreamReader (;               //  read the the keyboard
            keyboard = new BufferedReader (reader);                  //<-
            String name;                 //Assigns the name variable which will be parsed into...
            int newnames;               //...the integer variable for the amount of names.
            int order = 0;              //The integer variable that will be used to set the array size
            String[] array;             //Dynamic array (empty)
            System.out.println (" How many names do you want to input?");   //This will get the number that will later define the array
            name = keyboard.readLine ();
            newnames = Integer.parseInt (name);                                         // Converts the String into the Integer variable
            array = new String [newnames];                                               //This defines the size of the array
            DataInput Imp = new DataInputStream (;       //Allows data to be input into the array
            String temp;                                       
            int length;                                                                  //Defines the length of the array for a loop later on
                for (order = 0 ; order < newnames ; order++)                                //<-
                {                                                                           //  Takes the inputed names and
                    System.out.println (" Please input name ");                            //  gives them a number according to
                    temp = keyboard.readLine ();                                           //  the order they were inputed in
                    array [order] = temp;                                                  //<-
                for (order = newnames - 1 ; order >= 0 ; order--)                                //<-
                {                                                                                //  Outputs the names in the reverse 
                    System.out.print (" \n ");                                                   //  order that they were inputed
                    System.out.println (" Name " + order + " is " + array [order]);             //<-
                for (order = 0 ; order < newnames ; order++)                                  //<-
                    if (array [order].startsWith ("M") || array [order].startsWith ("m"))     //  Finds and outputs any and all
                    {                                                                         //  names that begin with M or m
                        System.out.print (" \n ");                                            //
                        System.out.println (array [order] + (" starts with M or m"));         //
                    }                                                                         //<-
                for (order = 0 ; order < newnames ; order++)                                            //<-
                    length = array [order].length ();                                                   //
                    if (length >= 5)                                                                    //  Finds and outputs names
                    {                                                                                  //  with 5 or more letters
                        System.out.print (" \n ");                                                      //
                        System.out.println ("Name " + array [order] + " have 5 or more letters ");      //<-
    }The notepad file contains the following names:
    I have tried various methods but the one thing that really gets me is the fact that i can't find a way to connect the names to the arrays. Opening the file with FileInputStream is easy enough but using the names and then outputing them is quite hard. (unless i'm thinking too hard and there really is a simple method)

    By "connect", do you just mean you want to put the names into an array?
    array[0] = "jim"
    array[1] = "laruie"
    and so on?
    That shouldn't be difficult at all, provided you know how to open a file for reading, and how to read a line of text from it. You can just read the line of text, put it in the array position you want, until the file is exhausted. Then open a file for writing, loop through the array, and write a line.
    What part of all that do you need help with?

    What you could do is checking the input string for numbers. If it contains numbers, just reprompt for the Name.
    AND you might want to ask yourself why the heck a calculator needs to know the users Name.

  • Need Help Please - PSD InDesign (for print)?

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm a graphic designer for a company that has decided to run some print ads in a magazine. At the time, I only had Photoshop to create their advertisement with. Now they have purchased CS4, which will make my life easier in the future, however, for now I have the problem of creating my advertisement made with Photoshop and creating a print ready PDF.
    Here is my problem:
    - I created a PSD at 8.5" x 11" at 300ppi
    - I did not take in to account for the 0.125" bleeds and 1/8" trim
    - It needs to be SWOP compliant (I figured out I can export a PDF that adheres to SWOP)
    - Fonts should be Type 1 Postscript, no TTF (I'm using Helvetica and Arial, when I export the PDF, it says the embedded fonts are TTF)
    - I'm totally lost with regards for designing work for print!
    Here the specs they gave me, AFTER I created the design in Photoshop
    Full page, full bleed 8.0" 10-3/4" (**I created my PSD as a 8.5" x 11" - without regard to bleeds**)
    Include 1/8 bleed over all to ensure full page bleed
    and keep live copy 1/4 from trim and crop marks.
    CMYK, 4-color process printing only.
    Do not add bleed to partial page ads.
    All requirements are based on Specifications for Web Offset
    Publications (SWOP). Any deviation from these specifications may
    result in less-desirable printed results.
    We support PDF files generated by Adobe Acrobat using
    the X-1A Job Option Settings for Distiller. In order for
    prepress to generate printable PDF s, it is important that
    the native file is prepared accordingly.
    Preparing native files for printable PDF s:
    All images/scans must be in CMYK mode,
    300 dpi resolution
    Use Postscript (Type 1) fonts only. No True
    Type, Windows/PC or custom fonts accepted
    Embed all fonts
    Do not nest EPS files in other EPS files
    Four-color solids should not exceed SWOP
    density of 280%
    Provide two digital color proofs at 100% size, created
    from the supplied digital file, on a contract-quality,
    digital halftone proofing system in accordance with
    SWOP web coated standards (AGFAPressmatch,
    Kodak Approval, DuPont Waterproof, etc.). Laser or
    inkjet proofs are not considered accurate in color and
    are supplied for content confirmation only.
    If supplied, the publisher is not responsible for color variances
    between the digital file and final color reproduction.
    NOTE: If proofs are not supplied, make-goods due to
    reproduction quality will not be honored.
    I've never done print work before, as I'm mainly a graphic designer for the web.
    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated! Unfortunately for me, they bought the advertisement space with the magazine for the running of the next issue before speaking with me. So I'm under extreme pressure to get this underway. I'll be most grateful for any help or guidance, Thanks guys!

    You can Place a PSD in Indesign, but unless the bleed is a single color,
    it's going to be easier to add bleed in Photoshop. Bleed is whatever
    gets cut off when they trim the paper. Trim is close, but not exact, so
    whatever picture or color goes to the edge of the paper must extend
    beyond the edge to avoid trim including some white when the trim is not
    quite perfect. If it's a picture that goes to the edge, you need to
    figure out a way to extend the picture beyond the edge. If it's white
    that goes to the edge, then you don't need bleed. If it's a non-tone
    color field (a single color) then you could Place the PSD in Indesign
    and add bleed color behind it and extending beyond the edge of the page.
    The magazine should not concern themselves with TT or T1 fonts, either
    one should work. That said, Helvetica and Arial are very close. If your
    Helvetica is Type 1, just use Helvetica for the whole thing. If you
    embed it in the PDF, it should show there as a Type 1 subset.

  • Needing Help with color setting for Photoshop 4 + imac

    Hi, Is anyone able to assist me please.  To cut a long story short.  i have had to reinstall my original software onto my Imac as when i put on Snow leopard it was just slowing down Photoshop 4 and would keep crashing.  So my problem is .... I had some prints printed today at Fuji and the prints have come back dark and just not up to scratch.  I know that it is not Fuji, but my settings.  I had someone set up my imac and Photoshop last time, but this time i will have to do myself and i just don't know what to set them at. Can anyone help please.  Not sure if you need this info but i am in New Zealand.  many thanks in advance.

    Being in the business of printing other people's image files, I can say without any doubt that the advent of digital image processing has definitely muddied the waters to a much greater extent than was the case when printing negaive film.  I'm also a shooter, and have been using such programs for many years, so I can understand the desire to manipulate your files before sending them to the lab. Color negatives never had "Profiles" attached to them.  If the proper film was used for the lighting conditions, it was simply up to the lab to make sure the resulting print was in balance, both in color and density.  It was also the lab's responsibility to maintain a degree of quality control that would make all of the above possible and repeatable.  I have to agree with the other response to your question.  Whether or not you have an embidded a profile, it's always the job of the printer to make sure the final print is up to a certain standard of quality.  If that is not the case, find another printer.  Unless you have indicated that your files should be printed without any corrections, the oweness belongs to the lab/printer.  I do have a few customers whose work I can print with very few corrections, due to the fact that they have calibrated their displays and have a very tight workflow.  However, the vast majority of files that I print require a considerable degree of correction, that's my job.  It's also the job of your lab/printer and if they are nor satisfying your needs you have to find someone who does.  I have printed many files that have no profile embidded and I simply convert them to my working color space(Adobe RGB 1998).  If you are concerned about doing color settings, this is the obvious place to start.  Create a custom space and make sure your working color is set to Adobe RGB 1998, not sRGB.  Adobe RGB 1998 is a considerably larger color space with a wider gamut and will allow for more choices and a wider range when it comes to processing the image.  Pro Photo RGB is an even larger color space, but one that is seldom used at this time.  I suspect it will become more popular in the fairly near future, as other technologies continue to push the color gamut envelope.
    So, I guess the gist of all of this is that you need to either have your lab/printer redo the dark prints, or find someone who knows how to print.  And equally important, someone who cares about your work as much as yo do.
    I am attaching a screen shot of my color settings and I would suggest this might be a good place to start.

    Hello all,  I'm looking for the original bios file for the SR2010NX.  HP doesn't have it on their website and my computer won't boot correctly with it.  ahhhhhh.  I appreciate any help!!!
    Thanks John

    According to what I found, that has this motherboard:​e=c00757470&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=2093&product=323​...
    Which is a A8M2N-LA  Naos-GL6, is this that what you have?  And what BIOS are you looking for, or should I say what did you try to put on it?
    I happen to have the same motherboard on an old Compaq, so I could possibly exctact the BIOS file if it is the one you are looking for.  It showes 3.00 I beleive but I will check if you need the info.

  • Need help with backup files made by HP Recovery.

    So in 2011 I had made a post about a DV9 series HP laptop I had that I felt needed a harddrive. Well the laptop has been sold to a friend of mine and he has since fixed the issue it had. My curent deboggle is trying to deal with the 36GB of data it backed up onto an external USB powered harddrive. The information was saved from a system that ran Windows VISTA, on that same DV9 Pavilion. I have a new laptop and it's a Pavilion DV6 running windows 7. Is there some sort of 3rd party application or an uncommon HP utility that can open, run or modify. Specificaly I need to some files but not all, but if my only option is to extract all then that would be fine also. There is an executible in the backup folder but it doesn't extract anything it just locks up. 
    For the TLR portion, need to access backup files made on an older HP laptop with windows vista to a newer HP latop running windows 7.

    Terribly sorry for the post, I should have researched more before posting. I found the answer to my issue in another thread here on the HP forums! Thanks so much!!
