I have a PDF file that was created for me where it has open fields for me to edit. I will be using this PDF as a template, and add my own information to the form, then forward it to my customer. The problem is, I do NOT want my customer to receive a PDF form that can be edited, I want them only to be able to view it, not edit it. How do I save the "editable" PDF file to a non editable PDF file?

How to convert scanned PDF file or TIFF file to reflowable PDF document?

I have some query for OCR.

1.The compressed PDF files created should also be 50-80% compressed as compared to standard CCITT G4 / JPEG compression (in TIFF / JPEG / PDF file format).

2.Should be linearized PDF

3. In case of images with printed English text, the output PDF document should be searchable

4. In this case the PDF should also be reflowable such that the text readjusts itself on the basis of the size of the screen

5. Should be enabled for interactive use (applying digital signature in batch mode).

6. Also it should be possible to digitally sign these PDF files using free Adobe Reader.

How to print PDF file to Canon Printer 11×17 size paper?

I am trying to send a PDF document to a Canon iR-ADV C5235/5240 PS3 printer and specifying paper size 11x17 but the Canon printer is not understanding that size. I am using C# and the Process object. I set the process start arguments as -paper "11x17" -printer \\printserver\printername file.pdf. The printer shows an error saying that A5 paper is not available and that I need to select a different size. I do not have this problem sending to other printers.

I am using an evaluation version of PDFPrint and needing to know if it will work for us. If I cannot print these documents then I cannot use the product.

I have also tried using different sizes like ledger, tabloid, 11inx17in, 17x11 but none seem to work.

Please use "-paper pdf" option to try again, e.g.,

pdfprint.exe -paper pdf C:\test.pdf

You can also run following command lines to print your PDF file again,

pdfprint.exe -shell C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -shell2 C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -raster2 C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -vector C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printermargins -raster2 C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -raster2 -rasterbwtext -rasterbitcount 1 -xres 150 -yres 150 C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -useembedfont C:\test.pdf

Can you print your PDF file properly with one of above command lines?

I can get the document to print using the -paper pdf option but it does not print on 11x17 paper. It prints on 8 1/2 x 11.

I can get the document to print on 11x17 paper from the command line using -paper "11x17" and -scalex 0 -scaley 0 options but cannot get the document to print on 11x17 paper from a C# program. When I specify these parameters the printer displays an error that it does not understand the printer size I specified.

Using the options below:
-shell option got an error saying .pdf is not a program
-shell2 the document printed but not on 11x17 paper. Printed 8 1/2 x 11
-raster2 document printed on 11x17 paper but the image was 8 1/2 x 11 with landscape orientation
-printmargins2 -raster2 document printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper
-raster2 -rasterbwtext -rasterbitcount 1 -xres -yres 150 document printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

Also I found that printing from my local machine using -paper "11x17" -scalex 0 -scaley 0 prints on 11x17 paper but printing from a windows 2008 r2 server with the same options prints on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

Thanks for your message, this maybe caused by permission restriction, please run pdfprint.exe from Administrator user account instead of default system user account, then you will get it work.

You can call RunAs.exe from your C# code to run pdfprint.exe from Administrator user account.

You can also call pdfprint.exe by VeryPDFComRunCmd COM Component from C# code to run it inside Administrator user account. VeryPDFComRunCmd COM Component can be downloaded from following web page,

If you run pdfprint.exe from Administrator user account, pdfprint.exe will work same as when you run it in CMD window by manual.

I tried all the suggestions below but none have worked. What I also found was that the only way I can print a document to print on 11x17 paper on the Canon printer is that I have to go into print preferences for the printer and select 11x17 paper size. I have found this to be the case on other Canon printers as well. No command line options seem to have any effect on what paper size the document prints to.

Initially I did not realize that the command line options were not working because I was getting documents to print on the correct size paper but that was because the printer preferences where set to the size I was printing. If I change the printer preferences to letter I cannot specify anything on the command line that will cause the document to print on any other size than letter. Same if I set the printer preferences to 11x17. I cannot specify anything on the command line to print on any other paper than 11x17. I have tried 11x17, ledger, 3, 4. I have also tried -chgbin and specified the bin holding the ledger size paper but it did not work.

I have also found this to be the same case whether windows 7 or windows 2008 R2.

How to stitch PDF pages horizontally?

I am evaluating PDF Stitch for Mac, trial version.

I have two PDF pages, 8.5" by 11" and a third page that is 6" by 11".

I desire to stitch them together, horizontally, for a total combined page size of 23" W by 11" H.

I have tried 4 times without accomplishing this task.

What am I missing and failing to do?

If this works, I have a larger task to accomplish in which I would purchase the software to complete the task.

Thanks.
