Cropping (in Acrobat) is non-destructive, as you noted. If you really want to permanently cut away parts of your scan, it would be better to open the file in an image processing software, do the cutting away (aka cropping) there and resave as PDF (or TIFF, and then bring back to Acrobat for a PDF). If you do not change the image resolution, the image ...

The subject of redation of PDF files seems to be a difficult subject concerning programming. As Acrobat Pro CD is much to expensive for me as a private non-profit user, I was looking for an alternativ. It took me rather long time to find a real good alternative to Acrobat Pro: PDF Studio PRO from Qoppa (http://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/): This tool really ...

I found PDFtk Server and Coherent PDF Command Line Tools have a wide range of PDF command line utilities. I've used both tools on and off, but never needed to do any TOC work. The Bookmarks section in Coherent's Usage Examples Page looks like it may be an approach to experiment with: 6. Bookmarks cpdf -list-bookmarks in.pdf List the bookmarks in in.pdf. ...

This is the method I used on my entire Zotero library (~3GB of PDFs). Note that the only annotations I use are highlighting (single color) and comments. Whether or not this successfully converts more complicated annotations depends on the detail of the skimembed script, which I don't know much about. What worked The original skimembed script converts a ...

I'm testing with Acrobat Standard Pro v10.1. There, in the print dialog, you can can choose to print only the document or the document with markup. The solution by I'L'I will only remove ...

In Acrobat, like in many applications, you can drag-and-drop the document icon from the window's title bar to other applications, which hands over the file's path (hold down the mouse button slightly longer before dragging). For example, if you drop the icon on the Desktop, the Finder creates an alias icon. If you drop it in a TextEdit document, the PDF is ...

In your comments, you describe the problem being the need to navigate to open the file. I think I understand what you mean: there's no history in the open-file dialog, so when you use "open file" in another application, the location it first presents is not where you saved the file. Consequently, you have to navigate around (within the open-file dialog) to ...
