converting pdf's

Post by boyat » Fri Aug 31, 2012 5:16 pm

when converting a pdf that displays perfectly (for example labels and banners) manually or automatically for a viewer, leaves the resulting swf with a full page around the label or banner, basically ruining the desired effect, how can i just display the predomintly white banner without the white outline around it.

You need to make sure that “Auto-Rotate and Center” and “Choose paper source by PDF page size” options in the Adobe Reader's Print dialog are set when you print your documents to the Print2Flash Printer. To achieve this, you need to open a PDF document you want to convert in Adobe Reader, choose File/Print, select Print2Flash Printer in the Printer Name field, make sure that the options mentioned above are set and click OK button.

Thanks for that answer, working fine now, but unfortunately we are having the same issue with Microsoft PowerPoint, the printing settings scale to fit paper wont stay selected, has to be selected each time unlike adobe, which is not helpful for batch proccessing. Is there an option in the print to flash settings that can help with this. ive checked and cant find anything, am i missing anything?

If you use Print2Flash OLE Automation API, you need to set FitToPage property of PowerPointOptions object to the value of 1 and also make sure that MSPOWERPOINT bit in UseAutomation property of BatchProcessingOptions object is set.
If you use Enhanced Batch Processing, you need to set PowerPoint.FitToPage parameter to on and also make sure that MSPOWERPOINT bit in UseAutomation parameter is set.

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. We don’t use the API or Enhanced Batch Processing. Is there a switch that can be used on the DOS command line to set the PowerPoint.FitToPage attribute to 1 and to set the MSPOWERPOINT bit in the UseAutomation parameter?

We use this command to p2fServer.exe

But if you use p2fServer.exe, it means you use Enhanced Batch Processing. You need to add the following parameters to the command line:

Code: Select all

/UseAutomation:15 /PowerPoint.FitToPage:on
