Why does my PDF come out rotated when I haven't selected that?

Why does my PDF come out rotated when I haven't selected that?

What you are trying to do is a process that we call “refrying a PDF file,” a process that we at Adobe most strongly discourage. There are facilities within Acrobat itself that allow you to remove objects and crop pages without having to ruin the PDF by creating PostScript and then distilling that back into PDF, a potentially very lossy process. You lose all color management, all live transparency, and could have font problems in the resultant PDF file.
The Adobe PDF PostScript Printer Driver Instance is parameterized by joboptions set in its properties. These properties have a parameter for page rotation. If the options specify automatic page rotation, you may be getting these unexpected results on the basis of Distiller's analysis of each page and trying to second guess the orientation. You should also be aware that the PostScript generated by Acrobat (and Reader) is optimized for printing on a PostScript device, not for generation of PDF by distillation.

  • Why do my movies come out sideways when transferred from my iPhone to my PC no matter which way I hold the iPhone when I record?  And how do I fix it?

    Why do my movies come out sideways when I transfer them from my iPhone to my PC, no matter which way I hold my iPhone when I record the video?  How do I fix it?

    Defiled:
    I did sign a two year contract and completed that contract. The 3gs is no longer in service. My daughter is going overseas to protect you and your family. I was attempting to find a way for her to have a reliable phone that could offer her some connection with home as she travels through the middle east.  She travels in missions all over.
    At&T unlocks other phones of theirs why not the iPhone?  AT&T says that Apple will not give them the code, it is not the carrier.  If I would have known this situation would have come up I would have bought and unlocked 3gs phone"Deggie" .  My main complaint is that Apple has not good excuse as to why they will not allow their phones to be unlocked from services well, AT&T .  I bought the phone full price, completed the contract terms, even went for and iPhone 4 with another2 year contract, along with owning an apple computer... I love the product.  My main issue is give me a good answer as to why you won't allow a phone to be unlocked. It doesn't hurt Apple, People still have to buy the phones from them, and use their App store and iTunes.
    Sorry, just upset about my daughter heading over there, boots on the ground, and just pray she will be safe. Would have liked to facetime her while she is in the airports and in specific areas allowed for that.
    Please don't come down on me for asking this question. I understand all the contracts etc.... but to single out the iPhone specifically to not unlock after contract is over does not seem fair.
    Thank you for your responses.

  • Why does my screen come up dark when I press the camera icon?

    Why does my screen come up dark when I press the Camera icon?  I can neither take pictures nor look at the photos I have saved.

    Doulbe tab the home key to see the task bar.  Touch and hold any of those icons until they jiggle, then delete them by touching the minus sign.   Then reboot the pad by holding the sleep and home buttons until the apple logo appears.  Ignore the red slider.
    You either have another app open that is using the camera, or you just have too much stuff in memory.  The reset process should clear it up.

  • Why does sound only come out of 1 speaker when I dock my iPod?

    My son's Ipod only plays sound out of I speaker. When I dock the ipod on his ihome radio or my sony radio, sound only comes out of the left speaker. When I put other ipods on the same docks i get sound out of both speakers. It is just this one ipod that won't produce sound out of both speakers, no matter what docking station I use.

    Likely it is a hardware issue for the iPod, you need to bring it for service

  • Why does my PDF look so CRAPPY when I print through acrobat???

    I have been having troubles with exporting a PDF from an Indesign file.. when I printed the exported PDF from acrobat, text was printing out very pixelated. I was exporting the file in indesign as a press quality pdf. The text looked fine when I viewed it in acrobat and zoomed in, but when I printed it out it looked very pixelated and not as black as it had when I had printed the file directly from indesign.
    so this is what I've figured it out so far... I was exporting to PDF in indesign then opening it in adobe arobat pro and printing from there... for some reason when I went into my advanced print settings in acrobat, it was set to "print as image: 100 dpi." I changed it and it printed out better but not perfect. To double check it was adobe that was causing the issue, I opened and printed the pdf through mac preview. This looked perfect - - exactly like it did when I printed through INDD.
    So my questions are, 1> WHY does it automatically printing as an image 100 dpi in adobe? and 2> how can I change this setting so when my client opens it up, they dont have to mess with any of the print settings to get it to look how it's supposed to? Is this a setting I can change when I save the file? I want to make sure it prints out correctly because one of the fonts used is ultralight and can look very very light if printed incorrecty. It looks perfect when I print through preview, but even printing as an image in 600 dpi through acrobat pro, the ultralight font looks lighter and more faded than it should (and than it does in the preview and INDD printed files). If i unselect the "print as image" checkbox, the ultralight text looks better but still not perfect. So that would make my second question >> WHY is the print quality worse when I print through adobe, and how can I remedy this? Any ideas??? Any help much appreciated!
    **using acrobat pro 9.4.6 on mac osx 10.6.8

    The PDF file itself does not control the "print as image" preference, which should always be turned OFF unless there's a specific need to rasterize the entire page, and is turned off by default in all Acrobat and Adobe Reader installations.
    What's the filetype for the ultralight font and what export setting* are you using in ID? If you're exporting to earlier than PDF1.7, OpenType fonts will be converted and may experience some small changes in shape if their hint definitions aren't done right.
    *As a side note, bear in mind that InDesign does not use any part of Acrobat when exporting PDFs, so questions specific to that stage in the process should be posted to the InDesign forums.

  • Since the FF update, why does the open tabs panel retract when a page is selected and is there a way to keep it visible?

    Since the recent update on FF android, the tab panel that appeared on the left of the tablet screen now retracts when a tab is selected. This means that I have to scroll back to the toolbar to select the tab icon to switch to a different open tab. I prefer the old option which left all the tabs visible on the side making it easy to swtich between them. Is there any way to turn this off?

    As stated before, this just keeps the adress bar from disappearing, the open tabs bar will still disappear :/

  • Why does web printing come out so small

    After selecting from a web page, there's nothing worth printing or saving as PDF, as it's all too small to read.

    What are you using to capture/save the text/images from the web? That software should have options for saving image sizes and font sizes as well.

  • Why does my DVD come out before it's done burning?

    Please reply before my dad's birthday is over. 

    Are you burnding directlhy from iDVD to disk?  Is so once you have the project as you want it save it as a disk image via the File ➙ Save as Disk Image menu option.  This will separate the encoding process from the burn process. 
    To check the encoding mount the disk image and launch DVD Player and play it.  If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding is good.
    Next burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality.  Always use top quality media:  Verbatium, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.

  • Why does my graphic drop out as a pdf?

    I created 4 graphics in Illustrator CS3, downloaded them onto a CD cover template and saved as an .ai file which looks fine. When I attempt to then save it as a pdf, one of the graphics drops out. Appreciate your feedback.

    When I click on Windows, 'Links' is not checked off. When I click  on
    'Links' and open the panel, all 4 graphics are listed but there are no  icons to
    the right of these file names.

  • Why does Safari quit (on my Mac) when opening PDF?

    Subject: Adobe Reader Why does Safari quit (on my Mac) when opening PDF?
    One of the things I have loved about Macs since switching in 2003 is:
    They tell you what went wrong when something does.
    The Acrobat plugin is corrupted.
    Solution:
    Download a trial of AppDelete. Install it and open it.
    Drag the Reader X app to the window.
    Delete everything it finds associated with Reader X and empty the trash. Re-download Reader X and re-install it.
    It will install new support and preference files and plugins. and things should go more smoothly.

  • Why does all alphabets change to capital when converting pdf to word using Adobe Acrobat XI

    Why does all alphabets change to capital when converting pdf to word using Adobe Acrobat XI

    Word 2013 uses its own pdf creator engine as far as I know. The step I performed were:
    1 - In the save settings I told word to embed fonts (sorry for the language, I have the Italian client)
    2 - Export from Word -> Save As -> .pdf adding also the table of contents/index
    N.B. I cannot use PDF/A, and in any case it doesn't embed the font
    A working solution is to use Acrobat XI to convert it or print with Adobe PDF printer, results:
    The problems are 2:
    1 - It doesn't create any bookmark and doesn't create links from the table of images to the linked images
    2 - Images, also with the preset "High Quality Printing" customized using "No compression", are really ugly and if you zoom a bit more than 100% they totally be s**t. It wasn't that way with PDF created by word.
    In the end, or I find they way to open the pdf created by word and embedd the missing font, or I find a way to make Acrobat XI creating bookmarks from the word file.
    Suggestion?
