I loaded adobe reader X to replace reader 9. Many of the features I depended on in 9 are missing from X. Especially save as jpeg and convert to Word. Can you help get me back to 9?

It is not recommended to go back because of security and bug fixes. you can open pdf's in libreoffice draw and then export then to jpg.

My files are created in adobe pagemaker now I want them to convert in jpg or pdf format how?

1. Save the Pagemaker document. If you don't do this before proceeding, a pop-up box will remind you.

2. Go to File>Export>Adobe PDF. A dialogue box of PDF options will come up.

3. Determine what you want to use the PDF for. If you are exporting for a specific print job, the printer will give you Distiller settings. Otherwise, in Job Name, just choose the settings that most closely meet your requirements: High Quality Print for a printout, Smallest File Size for a document that will be viewed online.

4. Click "Export." An "Export PDF As" dialogue box will pop up. Choose the folder in which you wish to save the PDF, and name the file. Check the "View PDF" box, so the PDF will open after it has been created.

5. Watch the dialogue box. It should show that Distiller is creating the file. When finished, the PDF document will open.

Good Luck!

I first scanned all the docs into the picture gallery. My professor needs them all in pdf format. How? I've got an HP Pavilion laptop. My professor's waiting for me to call her tonight when...

PDF format means legal form which is handled in Adobe Acrobat. You said you scanned your docs into the picture gallery, and I am hoping that you left them in the default format that your scanner uses instead of changing them to a picture format (like JPEG, or TIFF) or this may be too complicated to assist via email.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat & Adobe Reader, do a search on the internet and download then install them. They are free. Once the programs are installed, open Adobe Acrobat and click on "file" at the top left side of the screen and try and open one of the documents you saved in the picture gallery in the acrobate program. If they are compatible, all you have to do is rename and save the document in Adobe. To save it, after you have opened it in Adobe - click on file and then "save a copy" or "save as" and choose whatever the documents name is and .pdf at the end (save to a pdf format) and then you are done.

If the file format of the documents are not compatible and will not open and easily save in PDF format using the Acrobat, then I would suggest asking your teacher for an extension.

Good luck!

In yahoo email i cant open a linked attachment. this is a brand new computer.

Hi Smith.
To be able to open attached docunebts the related program must e installed on your computer.
As an example:
If an attached file is a PDF file (eg. xxx.PDF) a pdf reader must be installed - typical Adobe.
Can be found here: - download the Adobe Reader and install it.

If the document is a word document eg xxx.doc or - xxx.docx - Microsoft Office must be installed and so on.

The problem might be as descried that the related program is not installed on your computer.

I've downloaded the file and also the converter but can't create any pdfs. Used to have PDF complete and deleted this, as went to CutePDF, so is a reason why? Anyone help me out?

The process may be your issue. the converters do not work like Adobe. What you do is develop your document, then print it (after save, duh), and CHANGE to the pdf printer. it does similar process of print to file of the olden days....The process will prompt for a filename.

Hello- i am a 62 year old novice in using a computer... This morning I received an e-mail which I needed to revise it's attachment and forward it to someone. When I tried to revise it there or save it...

What type of attachment? If it was a PDF, you probably read the file with Adobe Reader which does not allow you to alter the file. You could print out the document, fill it in and then scan it back into your computer (if you have a scanner or all-in-one printer).

Alternatively, try a free PDF editor online, such as . There are some cheap PDF editors for sale as well but can be limited in their features and I haven't tried them. Adobe Acrobat is the full PDF editing program.

Some of the Office Suites will convert a PDF into a format that you can edit and then convert back to a PDF. (OpenOffice 3 does this in the Draw part of the program, according to online documentation.)

For other types of attachments, you will need to do something similar. Find a program that reads and writes to that format or can convert the file to one that can read and write to it.

Examples: ( .doc - word processor (WordPad, Office, OpenOffice
.xls - spread sheet (Office, OpenOffice) )

Obviously this isn't a full list.

I hope this helps.

Adobe reader will not open received email attachments. Installed AR 7 still does not work

So big a program, so many problems and annoyances..

The best solution ever for those who just want a PDF reader without all the bells and whistles and associated rubbish that Adobe force you to contuinual update, is to get Foxit Reader from a secure source such as this link: -

This just so simple and small it makes Adobe PDF Reader look like a lumbering dinosaur.

Hi. I need ACRORD32.EXE to open pdf files I receive via email, including image files in pdf format. I tried getting updates on ADOBE Acrobat, but currently I have an old laptop (1998) and only Win98 as OS....

some one with the newer version could open them then save them in some other format, than email them back to you, or possably convert them to an older format for you to open them.

also with the newest version of inter net explorer you shoud be able to open it on line with explorer, than save it to the version that you have.
