  • How do I create an interactive PDF file with variable data

    We would like to basically do a 'mail merge' of our list of customers with an interactive PDF file (including videos, menus, etc - not just form fill out and web links) to create a single PDF file that contains multiple mail pieces ... one for each customer ... with each mail piece being customized for that customer.  Customizations would include different greetings (Dear Bob, Dear Dana, etc), as well as different charts based on data unique to the customer, different photographs, etc.
    I've seen that InDesign and Acrobat Professional can be used to create an interactive PDF (such as from http://tv.adobe.com/watch/ask-the-adobe-ones/14-calling-rufus-about-interactive-pdf-making).  However I don't understand how I can insert data from a database, csv file, excel file etc into the PDF file so that each page, or each set of pages, within the PDF can be customized.
    Can anyone point me to a tool to use for this?
    Thanks,
    Bob Kendall

    For that kind of volume and unattended operation, you want InDesign Server – which is the server/high volume edition of INDD.

  • How do I create an interactive PDF file in InDesign CS6 with Folio Overlays?

    I have been trying to export an interactive PDF file using InDesign CS6. It exports fine, and all the content works except for the Folio Overlays I created. I created two Folio Overlays (one Pan & Zoom and one Scrollable Frame). The overlays work if I preview them from the Folio Overlays panel, but they do not work on the PDF document.
    I am using File >> Export... to create the PDF document, and I am sure the PDF document is of the interactive type and not the print type. Am I exporting it incorrectly? Is there a specific step that I have missed somewhere? Do I need to create a Folio Build to make the Folio Overlays work?
    When I mouse over the Folio Overlays, I get the crosshair cursor which only selects part of the image when I click and drag it.

    PDF is one thing. Folios for DPS is another. There is a little bit of
    overlap but not much.
    The interactivity in the folio overlays panel is for DPS only.

  • How to overcome 45inch size restriction on 4 x 300page PDFs ? - are  ex docs - jpgs photographed with iPhone - on Mac and acrobat pro 9

    Hi
    I have 4 x 300+ page PDFs (made from iPhone photo jpgs of old typed documents) that I made into PDFs and then tried OCR but it failed saying the pages exceed the 45 x 45 inch limit.
    Is there anyway I can reduce the 45 inch problem - for each batch/multiple page file  - and not have to resize each jpg image individually ?
    please say yes !
    I have  acrobat pro 9 ...and Photoshop cs6.
    all suggestions welcome

    Overcome the 45 inch limitation? You don't.
    What to do? Ensure the process you use to create PDF outputs a page size that does not bump/exceed 45 inches.

    Especially, be sure you are USING Acrobat. Many people keep using the free Adobe Reader, which isn't changed.

  • How do I create a new PDF file?

    How do I create a PDF file? All I'm trying to do is open a blank file to start creating a pdf.....

    Hi rainbowi62203236,
    You can use either Adobe PDF Pack or Acrobat to create a PDF file. If you don't have Acrobat, please feel free to give it a try. You can download a 30-day trial from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat.html.

  • HOw do I create a new PDF file that incorporates the text changes I made in the previous PDF file?

    All of my edits appear properly in the saved file but as pop-ups etc. that cannot be seen when I print a copy.
    This seems like an obvious thing to want to do, but I cannot find out how to do it from any of the documentation (including video tutorials).

    Something to try:
    Create a Comment Summary report (a PDF file).
    There are several approaches that can be used.
    --| Work out of the Comment List (Comments > Comment View > Show Comments List or click the overlapped comment bubbles at the bottom of the Navigation panel)
    --| Comments > Show Comments List
    --| Comments > Summarize Comments
    --| Comments > Print with Comments Summary
    In the Summarize Options dialog, select the desired layout, paper size, how comments are to be sorted and font size.
    Select Include All comments. If you want to sort by review status, author, comment type, etc then go into the Comments List.
    The tool bar provides various means of configuration.
    When the Print dialog is present, under the "Properties" button (upper right), use the drop-down menu for 'Comments and Forms' to select "Document and Markups".
    The imprint on the paper will have the PDF page content and annotations (comments) provided in the PDF by use of the Text Edit tools.
    So, you can provide the text entered into a Text Edit's pop-up two ways.
    First - You have the PDF of the Comments Summary Report.
    Second - You have the hardcopy of this PDF.
    Of note is that, with Adobe's Tech Comm Suite, you can author in FrameMaker or MS Word, output a PDF for comments and review, then bring these comments back into the source authoring file.
    Be well...

  • How do I create a single PDF file with multiple pages?

    Hi, I occasionally need merge several jpg images into a single pdf file with multiple pages (one Jpg per page). I have tried doing this on Preview, and by selecting all the pages I want to include in my document and trying to save to Pdf through the "Print" function, but every time it only saves the first page.
    Can anyone tell me if there is a way to save multple-page pdf files without having to purchase a specific program (i to this too infrequently to justify the cost)?
    Thanks very much,

    This works for me...
    Open first image in Preview View > Sidebar. Drag the other images into Sidebar, then select all.
    From File menu > print selected images. Choose PDF > Save as PDF

  • How to print a scrollable, interactive PDF file

    I've had an interactive PDF application form built. Works great for the applicants, as boxes allow scrolling so that applicants can add detailed info where relevant. However, now that the completed applications are flowing in, I can't figure how to print them (as part of the application review process) so that they display/print all the content in the scrollable boxes. Am I missing something? Any assistance would be appreciated.

    This is really a user question for whatever program you are using to print
    the PDF forms - it's not really an issue of the PDF language.
    Assuming you are using Adobe Acrobat, please post in our Acrobat forums.

  • How do I create this interactive PDF?

    Does anyone know where I can create a PDF form like this? http://media.wix.com/ugd//09aa20_0159bb1d474f8d81fefb703be8d72d5c.pdf
    It has:
    Custom Background
    Numbers that add & subtract as options are selected / deselected
    Two columns
    Multiple Font Options
    Supports PNG files
    Etc
    I'm using https://formscentral.acrobat.com but it doesn't offer any of these options (that I can see) so does anyone know how this particular form was created?
    Thank you!

    That is a type of PDF form known as an Acroform, which is the type that created by Acrobat and now InDesign, as opposed to an XFA PDF form that's made with LiveCycle Designer.  The radio buttons should have unique export values (aka Button Value and whatever it's called in Acrobat 10/11) for the ones that are in the same group. Acroforms can be used with FormsCentral, but with FormsCentral the form data is submitted, as opposed to the entire PDF. Is seems as though this form is just intended to be printed, so it really doesn't matter. It could be a lot smaller if the entire pages weren't bitmaps and instead used real text.

  • How do I create an interactive pdf form my clients can actually use?

    In the new CS6 Indesign (which is very easy to use to make forms) I've gone through all the steps to make a beautiful form whose buttons, text fields, and hyperlinks all work (great!) but now I've stumbled across one VITAL problem: the submit form button does not work!
    I’ve set it up as I’ve seen it done on videos, as a “submit form” type, with the address “mailto: emailaddress.”
    Once I exported the file to a pdf interactive form, my "Print form" button works well, and I though I'd fixed the problem when I downloaded adobe reader to read my form, however, no matter what type of computer I use with it, when I hit the "submit form" button, a message saying something to the effect of “you must open in your browser” pops up.
    When dragged the pdf document into my browser like the message suggested, not only did the “submit form” button still not work, but now I cannot interact with any of the buttons or fields!
    My goal here is simple: make an interactive form my clients can access online (whether as a downloadable pdf or directly on my website) that they can fill out and submit to us directly to our email.  As many of our clients are older, I’d like to make it as easy as possible for them to use our system, and be able to just hit the “submit form” button instead of having to go through the trouble of attaching the finished pdf they filled out to an email and submitting to us.
    All the videos I’ve come across so far talk about how to MAKE these forms, but not how to set them up to be used realistically for a business.  Any help I can have would be appreciated, I don’t mind so much how this gets done, as long as it is easy for my clients to access the form and fill it out easily and quickly. 
    Thank you in advance,
    ~Kara

    Yes, this is the page that the pdf is on.  It's the link that says "Online Ordering Form."

  • How do I create an after effects file with an interchangeable image

    Hey,
    hope someone can help me, I'm using after effects to create a mp4 file, it contains a photo which has a animation super imposed ontop of it.
    When the projects finished the base photo that the animation is created around could change up three times a day.
    What I'm trying to work out is a way for a non technical user to just be able to upload the new photo to somewhere and for the animation to be created and returned somehow to him so that the animator doesn't have to re open and edit the affect effect project each time a new photo comes in.
    Is there a way to do this built into after effects does any one know?
    Thanks for any help
