Hey,

yes there is, foxit reader

ensure that you click on file, then print, and make sure the printer you have is selected, not something else.

Pdf preview handler error when trying to open, save or preview pdf documents (doesn't do it for all!). OS is win xp sp3


Microsoft Office does not support PDF files by itself. This has to be an issue with the program that you are using to view PDF files.
My suggestion would be to do download FoxIt PDF Reader from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/products/reader/ and try that, it's what I use, and it's FAR more secure than Adobe's PDF Reader.
They also have a pro version, which is much less expensive than Adobe PDF.
Hope this helps!

From the info you provided, seems like your Adobe Acrobat Professional wasn't installed properly or there are some missing files.
If you have the installation file, try installing the software again.
(When you click on Yes, nothing happens because adobe cannot find the Installation/setup file on your laptop.)
If you do not have the Adobe installation files, as an alternative download CutePDF writer. Its free and hardly takes any space on your pc/laptop (<4MB)
Direct Download Link for CutePDF
Once downloaded, install the software and follow the steps below:
1. Open the Word file you want to convert to pdf
2. try to print it
3. before printing, the time when u have to select your printer, select Cute PDF Writer as shown in the image below
4. Click on print

5. The Word document will be printed as a PDF file and you'll be asked where you want to save it :)
6. Choose your destination.
7. When the printing is completed, you can open the pdf file in Adobe PDF reader
* You don't need a printer to do this
* You can follow the same steps and print excel/powerpoint files to pdf (or any other file type that you can "print")
Hope this helped!

Where can I get a manual for george foreman grill gr20bwc


Hi,

The manufacturer doesn't list a manual for GR20BWC, but they do have a manual for a GR20BUC. I suspect this may be identical to your unit:

http://www.useandcaremanuals.com/pdf/GR20BUC.pdf

Click on the link and the file will open. You can then view, save and/or print your manual. If you are unable to open the file, you may also need to download Adobe Reader:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

If this isn't your manual, please post back and I will try to find an alternative source.


Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thank you.

I AM TRYING TO FILL IN AN APPLICATION FORM IN A PDF FILE AND I DON'T GET ANY OPTIONS TO HIGHLIGHT TEXTS. IS IT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER I'M USING DOESN'T HAVE MICROSOFT WORD INSTALLED?


What program did you use to open the PDF? If you opened it with the default program, you probably used Adobe Reader which does not allow you to edit PDFs. You can import PDFs into several Office suites with add-ons. For example, Open Office 3 has a PDF add-on that lets the PDF be opened and modified in Draw and Impress. There are also online PDF editors and some low cost alternatives to Adobe Acrobat is the full program that makes PDFs. PDFill PDF Editor gets some good reviews
http://download.cnet.com/PDFill-PDF-Editor/3000-6675_4-10295757.html
as does www.pdfescape.com/ (an on-line option). Please note that most will put their logo on your document as a footer or somewhere unless you use a paid version.

I hope this helps.

(word does the PDF import more easily as I recall (possibly with an add-on) but there are alternatives.)

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.

I have a lexmark X2650 printer. i cannot print any adobe reader pdf file by it. when i press print command then it goes to file save option. Please help by giving the valuable information about this...


Perhaps update your adobe reader software, or try opening your saved pdf through a web browser, although it still uses adobe maybe it will simply work that way? good luck.

When i try to open a pdf file from the web it says adobe readere


Alternatively, you can right-click on the link to the PDF file and select: "Save As." Then you can open the file at your leisure, and keep a copy of it for later, if you like, or print it.
