Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for PC

1 Answer

Printing pdfs with highlighted text/shaded areas

When I go to print a pdf that has a shaded box of text, or I, personally, have highlighted a sentence, I see everything correctly on screen, but once I print, the shaded area and the hightlighted text prints pure black. In other words, all I see is one big black box (for the shaded area) or black lines (hightlighted text).

It's very frustrating!

    I'm not sure I explained the problem correctly. I have been printing with this printer for two years and have never had a problem with hightlighted or shaded text in Adobe Acrobat 7.0 before now. And, we are able to print the same pdf from another computer to that same printer, so I don't think it is the printer.

    Thanks for the help, though!

That just means that you don't have a postscript enabled printer, or possibly you're using a black and white only printer. You might be able to print highlighted items normally on other printers, but will have to remove the highlighting to see the text on the one that you have. Alternatively, if removing the highlights isn't possible, you might try selecting all the text and then pasting that into a new document in a word processor or another similar program. If you do have a color printer, and need to print what you're seeing, you can arrange the document so that it is centered on your screen and then press: "Alt + Print Screen" at the same time. You can then open MS Paint or a similar photo editing program and paste ("Ctrl + V") the screen capture into the program.

Let us know if you need further help.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

    PDF's will be changes, often quite significantly, by the preferences which are set on the computer. They are quite extensive, but one or more of them must be causing your problem. I don't have Acrobat 7.0, I have Acrobat 9.0 Pro Extended, or I'd go through the list. You might reset the preferences to their defaults.



    Also, you might have a problem with preferences which are switched by any add-ins that you've attached to Acrobat.



    You are using Acrobat, not Adobe Reader, right?

How do I make a CD label?


There is a user manual on the install disc, pdf-format. To get to the manual, insert the install disc and wait for the small window to appear. At the bottom are some options, one being "View User's Guide". Click that. Or you could access the pdf-file itself manually and copy it to your hard drive: After inserting the install disc, go to "My Computer", right-click on your writer drive, choose "Explore", double-click on the folder named "SE1", and look for a file called "SE1 Guide.pdf". Open it, or copy it and paste somewhere on your computer for future reference. Read Chapter 4 of the user guide - it is titled "CD&DVD LabelMaker". Here follows the chapter, illustrations excluded:

Chapter 4

Introduction

CD&DVD LabelMaker makes designing and printing disc labels

and CD/DVD inserts fast, simple, and fun. Customize labels with

your own photos, text, video stills, and music playlists. Hundreds of

professionally-designed themes are included inside. Supports

label paper templates by Avery®, Memorex®, Neato®, CD
Stomper®, and Direct to CD/DVD Printing with supported printers.

Getting Started

When you first start the program, you're prompted to select the type of

project you want to design and print: Disc Label, Jewel Case Insert,
and DVD Case Insert.

Once you've selected the type of project, you'll be prompted to select

the paper to which you'll be printing. Select your template from the list,

and then click OK. (You can also change your project type by selecting
a new one from the top pull-down.)

Designing your label

You can customize various sections of your label/insert depending

on the selected paper type/template. The main workspace in the

Design Label tab starts by focusing on one section of the label/

insert. For example, if you're using paper that has two disc labels, the
focus will be zoomed onto one of those labels.

Adjusting your view

Notice the two up/down arrows on the left side of the screen. When

applicable, you can click either arrow to shift the focus to the top/

bottom of the page. Click the Paper View button in the lower left

corner to see a small thumbnail of the page. Click the section that
you'd like to edit, and it will appear in the main workspace.

Changing the Background

The right side of the screen lets you change the paper background,

either by applying a color (Use Color) or graphic design (Use
Theme).

To change the background color, select Use Color. A color palette will

appear. Click the color you want. The color will then appear on the

label/insert in the main workspace. The palette is fairly robust. If you

select a new color that doesn't appear on the grid, you can add it to

your My Favorite Colors.

To delete a custom color, select the color, then click the - icon.

To add a design, select Use Theme. A pull-down at the top lets you

select from a variety of categories. Each category offers a variety of

designs. To select a design to apply to your project, simply click it.

Click the button to the right of the pull-down to search for additional
designs online.

Printing your project
A print preview displays your project.

If there are certain sections/components that you'd prefer to exclude

when printing, simply click that object (it will appear dulled in color).

If you change your mind and decide to print the object, simply click the

object again and it will become active for printing.

Print with Mask: This option is only applicable when printing disc

labels. If you notice that your prints aren't aligning properly with your

labels, uncheck this box. Instead of printing over the circular area of the

label only, a square version of each photo will print to cover more area
and fill the disc label.

Select Your Printer: From the Printer pull-down, choose your

printer.

Modify Your Printer Settings: Click the Printer Setup button to

view/modify your printer settings.

Set the Number of Copies: Use the arrow buttons to increase/

decrease the number of copies you'd like to print, or key in the value in
the available box.

When I click file export as pdf, is there any way of saving different print settings for example have one set up to create high res pdfs and low res pdfs in Quark 6.5?


YES.
I don't have it open in front of me, but you should be able to go to "Edit" and "Output Settings" From here you can create any kind of setting for printing or creating PDFs that you need.
I have quite a few of these set up on my computer at work.

WHEN I AM TRYING TO PRINT THE PDF FILE , I AM GETTING DIFFERENT MARGINS COMPARED TO ORIGINAL PDF FILE.SOME PRINTER IT IS ACTUAL AND SOME PRINTER IT IS DIFFERENT.HOW TO RECTIFY SUCH PROBLEM.KINDLY...


Acrobat reader scales pages on printing, depending on the printer and its driver. By default, Acrobat Reader will use one of the scaling options.
Before printing the PDF document be sure that you select the right kind of paper size such as A4, Letter and B5 which will be printed. Paper size is defined in the Document Setup dialog box for the document.
To print the document without different margin problem:
- Open the Acrobat Reader’s Print dialog box (Choose File > Print).
- Choose “None” from the “Page Scaling” drop-down list. (It will not change until you change it again).
- Then click “OK” to print the document.
This may solve your problem.

Missing lines on PDF from a large TurboCad file


Will TurboCAD allow you to export to a .pdf instead of printing to a .pdf? Have you tried printing to a file (.prn) before turning the file to a .pdf? To print to a file, click Print Setup, there should be a box to check to Print To File. Make sure you check that box. Then you should be asked to pick a file format which should be .prn if you are using windows. After you create the .prn file, then open Acrobat and convert the .prn to a .pdf. I hope this helps you with your problem. Printing can be a pain with CAD programs.

Printing text with no margins


Hello,

You need to make sure that your printer is capable of doing this. Most of them are not. If your printer is definitely capable of printing "full bleed", then there should be an option in the print dialog box that allows you to specify printing to the edges.

make sure your fonts are loaded correctly and turned on.Try it with a open type font and see if this fixes the problem. Open type fonts are the new font type to use. try www.dafont.com and enjoy. as for the creating a proper print file without text reflow and a open type doesnot fix the problem. Your rip for the proofer might need the font loaded locally for proofing. or when you send make sure the option to send fonts for each page selected.
