What is it that you can not see in Reader: button behavior, rollover effect,
hyperlink, etc. ?
Wow, I am impressed about the fast reaction:-)
The interactive function I am using (unfortunately in German inDesign) is
"button" > Action: by letting go (?). It's a file with some 100 pages and
some 500 links. Exported as pdf interactive...
The effect In AcrobatPro: when clicking on the thumbnail the original
picture shows in a separate window without closing the original file. After
closing the new window, I could continue in the multipage file...
This is not happening in Adobe Reader. It says: the link was not found, and
here and then, when shown in e new window, the multipage file is closed...
Hope this helps..
Thanks Jaro
I did reply on the forum directly, but no success. There trying via mail.
Hope it works:-)

  • PDF export problem in Pages/Keynote/Preview

    I am having some problems with PDF exports (and "Print as PDF")  from Pages (as well as Keynote and Preview).  Here is my situation:
    I am creating a PDF of a barchart+legend from the program Mathematica.  I suspect the way the exported PDF is formatted is that the chart and legend are two blocks within the PDF.  This PDF opens perfectly in Preview and Adobe Reader, and imports perfectly into Pages and Keynote.  However, when the Pages/Keynote document is exported to PDF or printed to PDF, the resulting file opens fine in Preview but not in either the Mac or Windows version of Adobe Reader (part or all of the image fails to appear with a generic "An error exists on this page, please contact the author of this document to correct this problem" error message).  This also happens with the PDF is exported/printed as PDF from Preview itself - the resulting file opens fine in Preview but not with Acrobat.
    Any suggestions?  While I could reconstruct the barcharts individually in Pages itself, for the sorts of documents I'm working on I could easily have dozens of PDFs to import for a single project, and it's much easier to export the files from Mathematica as the analysis is done than rebuild each one from scratch.

    As far as I know, there is no provision for such settings in these programs.
    Developer documentation for ICC colour management in Firefox 2, Firefox 3 and Firefox 3.5, see below. Firefox 3 has ICC colour management disabled by default. Firefox 3.5 has ICC colour management for images within which there is embedded an ICC source colour space profile. It is possible to set Firefox to colour manage the application windows as well as images with embedded ICC profiles. The developer documentation discusses how to do this in what sounds suspiciously like a command line / terminal tool, and also how to point Firefox 3.5 to the display profile. This in turn sounds suspiciously like Firefox 3.5 is unable to talk to the system level service and ask for the display profile automatically.
    Camino and Opera ... I'll pass. I suspect it's more of the same mess.

  • SAP NetWeaver Portal Crystal Reports PDF Export Problem

    Hallo all,
    We are working with BO Edge XI 3.1 with integration on SAP Netweaver Portal. The problem is that integrated in SAP Portal CR reports cannot be exported to PDF or printed out.
    I am using an URL iview with the parameter sOutputFormat=P to run the report.
    When I want to print out the report I get the warning message from Internet Explorer "The download of files from this page is for security reasons blocked. Click here..." --> Download the file. By clicking on the u201CDownload this fileu201D the report starts to run again. PDF export doesnu2019t happen.
    Did somebody have the same problem?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hello Ingo,
    thanks a lot for Your help. I have already talked to my IT department and they are looking for the solution of this problem, too.
    Is there a documentation  about necessary settings in the browser to work with SAP NetWeaver Portal and Crystal reports?
    The problem is that on some clients the PDF export is working and on another clients not. The settings of IE seem to be equal.

  • Three panel brochure pdf export problem

    I've created a three panel brochure, using the Pages 2 template. I need to share this with Windows people (who will handle the actual printing), so I exported it to pdf format. It looks OK (and Apple automatically embeds the fonts, nice!). However, the printed version is slightly different, such that the folds don't work correctly (images and words cross the folds).
    The pdf export prints perfectly from Preview, but not from Acrobat, which is what the Windows people have. Printing to pdf creates the same problem. Anybody know of a workaround to create the proper proportions for a pdf export? Thanks.

    Stephen- Based on some other discussions I read, I did try printing to pdf-x. Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem.
    Barabara- As it turned out, Adobe Acrobat was not printing at 100% in either Windows or OS X. In the Windows print command window, page scaling was defaulted to "reduce to printer margins." This meant the document was printing at 96%. By changing page scaling to "none," the document printed to 100%, fixing the problem.
    Likewise, in OS X, Adobe Acrobat's page scaling was also defaulted to "reduce to printer margins." This scaled the page to 93%, which caused the printing problem. By changing page scaling to "none" the document printed at 100%, fixing the problem. Thanks for the suggestion, which solved my problem.

  • Crystal Reports PDF Export problem

    Hi I'm using Crystal 8.5 for my reports in VB 6.0. We have intrepret as RTF in the report. Now when we export this report to PDF the nested bullets loose formatting. All bullets show up at the same level. Any idea how to fix this?

  • StarOffice 8 (Update 9) PDF Export problems

    I am using StarOffice 8 prupdate 9. I have been trying to export in PDF but I notived the following problems:
    1) When an 'area' (eg a basic shape) is filled with a color that is the same as the outline color BUT at a transparency level (say 50%) PDF exports this filled area with the same color as the outline and NO transparency.
    2) When I use connectors or Bezier curves, the bounding box of the curve overwrites whatever lies behind it.
    On the screen, none of the above problems are visible, just when I export to PDF.
    Any suggestions?
    thanks ....

    Had to back out the patch. As soon as I did that, the spreadsheets all came back to normal. I don't have a StarOffice support contract, so I can't alert Sun to the problem that way. Not sure if Sun people ever read this, is there a bugreport address I can send the info to?

  • PDF Exporting Problem

    Hello everyone,
    I hope not all of you are as frustrated as I am with Numbers 08'. I have problems with printing the entire document and can't seem to find the answer on the Numbers 08' forum, so I hope that would be addressed soon.
    For my more imminent problem with Numbers now is that, when I export my document to PDF, the headers were all cut out. But when I print to PDF, it turns out just fine. But printing to PDF does not allow me to print the entire document to PDF, so I have to do it sheet by sheet and save each sheet with a different file name. Well, I am pretty frustrated with that.
    Numbers is a very nice app, but I am quite surprised that simple and essential functions like priting the entire document and exporting are requiring so much effort from the users. This is not impressive at all.
    Help anyone?? Please Thank you.

    Using the side bar drag all the tables to the same sheet. Check print View and move the tables around to make sure the pages look right for printing. Delete any unused columns & rows.
    The printing, pdf export and page numbers (in the page footer) works on a per sheet basis.

  • PDF export - problems with displaying tables

    I have nice and neat rtf template with some text and big table. It looks fine, but when I export it to PDF it starts the table from new page, not just below the text, which results in 75% blank page. How can I fix it?

    We are using the PDF Export 8.3.7 version, and are having a similar problem. We have a Word file (.doc) with an embedded graphic. Inside the graphic is a table (the original graphic was created some where else and had text and a table, then an image was made of that which was then embedded as a graphic in the Word document). The problem is that the table does not render corretly - the last row of data is not displayed. Oddly, if in the resulting PDF/A output you highlight the region where the data should be displayed, and copy that to Word/Notepad, the data is there, the issue seems to be in rendering the data to make it visible in the rendered PDF/A output. We see other problems with tables in other files, for example some tables are rotated ninety degrees.
    Will there be a fix to PDFExport anytime soon?

  • InDesign PDF Export Problem

  • PDF export problem

    Pages 09 - Lion - MBP
    I used Pages to create a book of 180 pages with some images.
    All the images (jpg) inside the text are with the cool apple tools like shadows and so on.
    Everithing is perfect and nice. I exported to pdf and again everything seems to be perfect with preview.
    With my great surprise this pdf file (portable document format) is not the same if viewed in others PC or also other MAC without Pages!
    All the shadows and things like this are very bad or disappeared. That is really absurd! Is the PDF created with pages a NON standard PDF??
    After several attempts I find out a complicated workaround:
    pages --> export to postcript
    use acrobat distiller on a PC in order to transform the .ps file in a standard PDF . In this way everithing is perfect again but it seems to me really absurd and impossible that pages is not able to export in a pdf capable to work with all the "effects" that make pages so nice...
    Is there any easy way to use pages and export a real pdf file without problem with the rest of the world?
    Thank you for your help

    > I was saying that iWork is not delivered as a professional tool and so it's not logical to hope to get it professional results.
    The supported data structures in e-paper formats should capture (1) Unicode input and TrueType output settings for glyph runs, (2) ICC colourimetry input and ICC device profile output settings for colour worlds, and (3) W3 SGML/XML logical reading order for the output of the layout rendering order.
    In other words, you find an e-paper document in abstract archival space by its character information (modified by language markup), open the e-paper document in a browser (e.g. Apple Safari, Apple Preview), and image the e-paper document by its colourimetry information.
    There are any number of degrees of control over how the input of information and metainformation is mapped to image output, but if the input of information and metainformation is divorced from the image output, then the e-paper document is not accessible in abstract archival space.
    The aim of ISO and ECMA standards for e-paper is to ensure the best possible embedding of the memory-based mapping between information, metainformation and image, moving from the input-creating software through the e-paper format to the output-consuming software.
    Any and all applications in fact face the same sales situation: they are compelled to serve as channels for the same information and metainformation (in the encoding remits of the Unicode Consortium, the International Color Consortium, and the World Wide Web Consortium).
    While the Consortia willing allow that an application may internally choose an information encoding other than the interchange encoding, the Consortia disallow that information is lost. For instance, this is stated in Unicode Specification version 1.0 of October 1991.
    If as a user you work with system software in isolation from other software, nothing but the installed software is involved, then you can check if the system is conformant in the sense that it does not loose information, unless where loss of information is stated in documentation.
    This is nothing to do with how products are named in marketing, but with how conformance to information processing interchange for computerised telecommunications is understood in industry specifications and international standards.

  • PDF export - problem with embedded font

    Dear all,
    I refer to a problem which was already discussed [here|Export to PDF wrong font;. I was asked to start a new thread and provide further information. Here we are...
    The issue is nearly the same:
    - We have a solution which both has a WinForms and an .aspx UI.
    - We have a report, used in both solutions.
    - The WinForms solution uses the Crystal Viewer to preview and print and export and so on.
    - The web solution creates a PDF file and prompts to open or save. In this PDF, the font is substituted with Arial. This is actually the concrete problem.
    1) Version of CR
    on MY machine (MAYBE different on production environment, I have to check this):
    Crystal Reports 10 (
    Crystal Reports Basic Runtime forVisual Studio 2008 (
    Crystal Reports runtime engine for .NET Framework 4 (64-bit) (
    Crystal Reports , version for Visual Studio 2010 (
    2) CR Service Packs installed
    3) web / win app?
    Both, see description above.
    4) Is this happening on dev or deployed system?
    On deployed system. It ONLY affects the web solution on the server, which is a Win7 64bit. My developement machine also is a Win7 64bit, it works on this device. On a colleagues machine (WinXP) it works, too.
    5) What is the actual font?
    The Font was exclusively developed for the customer by a designer, but it is fully embeddable (I already checked this).
    6) Link to a screen shot that shows the issue
    I do not know whether this really helps to NOT see a font replaced by Arial...
    I hope you can help me. If the description is a little confusing, please ask, I will try to explain better, promised. Thank you, have a nice weekend!

    Hi Don,
    thank you very much for your reply!
    The font is True Type, embedding allows preview/print.
    What exactly does "Then make sure the WEB Servers have access to the font." mean? It is installed on the machine. I'm not really familiar with that server config stuff, as it is usually not my job...
    Do we have to install the update (it is called support pack 2, right?) on the developement AND the deployment machine? Or only on the developement environment?
    Best regards,

  • ID file and PDF export problem

    hope someone can help me...
    i created a file in ID. you can see the specs here:
    in the above image, you can see the bleed margin, and i made sure everything goes fully into the bleed.
    so then i sent the export (PDF) to the printer. see it here:
    so here i am excited thinking i did this right. then the prrpress department comes back and tells me the following:
    "" I checked with my prepress dept. and they are telling me that the Document Setup that you are in will allow you to set your bleeds BUT will not hold the bleeds. You need to export and that will give you options to set bleeds. (This is a bit greek to me so if you have a problem, let me know and I will get her to converse directly with you).""
    I thought I did this right. Can someone tell me what I did wrong in export and how to remedy the problem?
    thanks - mike, the deaf guy.

    That's better.
    It makes sense, really; you might want to send a pdf of the file to
    the printers, who needs the bleed, and another of the same file to a
    colleague, who wouldn't thank you for all that extra stuff round the
    edges if he doesn't realize he can hide it in his reader. You
    wouldn't want the bleed and slug bits to show if you posted an
    'optimized for web' pdf on the web or emailed it to someone
    interested in your courses. You can thus create different pdfs for
    different purposes from the same .indd file.

  • StarOffice 8 upd. 8 PDF-export problem

    After updating my StarOffice 8 installation to Product Update 8 I am no more able to export my documents to PDF. The German error Message is:
    Fehler beim Speichern des Dokumentes documentation:
    Die Datei konnte nicht geschrieben werden.
    in English (after switching locale):
    Error saving the document documentation:
    Write Error.
    The file could not be written.
    Before updating I think it worked. Next step I will try is to do a clean reinstall of StarOffice as well as test under Linux.
    Windows Vista 64-Bit
    StarOffice 8 (Product Update 8)
    Java 1.6.03 (x86 as well as x64)
    Does anyone have a solution for this?
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards, xasx.

    Okay - a clean reinstall solved the problem for now.

  • Interactive PDF export problem?

    When I tried to export this dialog box appears and it says;
    "One or more interactive elements are clipped in ways the PDF files cannot reproduce.
    Those elements will be adjust in the exported PDF."
    I wonder how can I find these elements is there a debug system in inDesign and show to me which element those are? I want to find them and fix it. But I can't. Please help if you know how to find these elements?

    you can use the system to export your document in halves until you find the problem.

  • Another pdf export problem with graphics missing

    well, it seems that there have been quite a few export probs w/pdf.
    i created some somewhat complex graphic files (wine labels) using keynote. then transfered them over to pages so that i would be able to print them
    more easily. when transfering them to pdf files i lose some graphics.
    the graphics that i lose are chinese characters...but only SOME of them.
    i've tried pdf/x, still the same problem, but then i have that funny shaded
    box around my letters.
    i've tried exporting directly from keynote, but the pdf image is markedly
    smaller than the oringinal document (with the comments hidden).
    any ideas...even the genius bar is stumped.
    macbook   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    In general, if some Chinese characters behave in one way and some other ones in another, it is often because one uses the wrong kind of font. If you for example have the (simplified) character 话 and use a font for traditional Chinese it may sometimes fail - especially in MS Word.
    That said, I cannot reproduce your particular problem here. Both Keynote and Pages seem to handle this as well as they possibly can for me.
    Two things you can try:
    1. Change font, to make sure that it matches the character.
    2. Create another account on your Mac and see if you still have the same problem.
    What did the characters look like? Any fancy formatting with shadows or colours?
