  1. Hi I created a pdf doc in Word for Mac 16.13. I brought the document into PDF Element and added fillable fields. The file size increased from 2.1MB to 7.7MB. It's a 7 page document with 15 fillable fields. Is this normal? It seems like a very big increase for a simple document. Thanks for your help.
  2. I am a corporate designer and work with the same logo all day long. It is a vector image with a 30% transparency. It is often laid over other graphics. When I try printing documents with our logo, the output of the logo appears on the page at 100%. Help!

  10. Not sure if anyone else has run into this. A PDF that I converted to Pages using PDFelement on MacOS, the iWorks Pages document shows Text plus an Image of the Text directly behind the typed text. If I change the opacity to zero all Images go away, both Images that I need to keep, but also the weird ghost image of the text as well. I am not sure if this is a result of OCR the original scanned PDF file using a different product (Scanbot on iOS) then convert this file to Pages using PDFElement. Has anyone else seen this issue? How did create the file to start 1) I created the original PDF from scanning in the original document. 2) I used Scanbot on an iPad to OCR the file making it searchable. [This looks good, and the OCR document is fully searchable] 3) I used PDFElement to add some hyperlinks from the Table Of Contents in the document to specific page in the PDF. [The document still looks good, and the hyperlinks work without a problem]. 4) I used PDFelement to convert the hyperlinked and searchable PDF to iWorks Pages. 5) When I open up the resulting iWorks Pages document, What I have is a document with a full page background image of the original text plus images. The OCR text is like a top layer on top of this background image. [The Pages document is essentially unusable]. 6) Similar to step 4 above, I had a thought that perhaps Keynote would be better, so I used PDFelement to convert the hyperlinked and searchable PDF to Powerpoint. 7) Similar to step 5 above, when I open up the powerpoint in keynote, the same problem, Text in front of a full page background image. What I am trying to do is to create a simpler user instruction manual with additional comments and process steps tailored to how the client is actually using the product. I essentially would like to take that original PDF and create a two column landscape document, one where the original document in on the right hand side, and any new annotations on the left side of the finished document. It still needs to be searchable and have working hyperlinks. The attached image gives you an idea of what I am talking about.
  11. I downloaded the trial version for MacOSX today and noticed that both distribute buttons look exactly the same and are unlabeled. A pretty huge problem, especially since there is no tool tip pop up when you hover over them. Needs to definitely be addressed. Also, distribute is not shown/explained in any of your tutorials. I couldn't find a definition for what it is/how it works anywhere. Does it distribute based on top most line and bottom most line? Are there other things that go into deciding how it distributes? A pretty big oversight in my opinion for such a powerful tool. Thanks!
  12. I've made a pdf form fillable by creating and lining up text boxes, but I have since realized that they need to be the same height (I have to realign them all vertically due to words being floated in vertical center, so none of them rest on the lines in the pdf). Is there a feature that does text box matching? Doing it by hand is maddening and I don't want to copy/paste boxes just to make them a uniform height (they're varying widths). I've searched to no avail on the internet and in this forum. I'd upload the file, but it's way too big. Thanks in advance!
  13. I want to use pre-filled default values in the form. I need several lines. If I use "multiple lines" or "scrolling with long text" I see nothing in the form. I then have to click in each box after the automatic pre-fills to see the text, the multiple lines I can only use if I write at least 1 letter in addition. But I do not want to click through the form, it should be filled immediately with the record. Is this problem known? Single line boxes work. If I use an other product (not Adobe) it works. But as I paid for this program I want to make it work either. Can you help? In this sheet there are 4 forms, in the beginning you only see one. But if I tab all forms and add 1 letter or number, the other 2 (multiple line forms) appear. See the screen shots please. I tried different documents.
  14. When you create a text field for others to fill with some special format of numbers, you can use our program PDFelement 6 Professional to set the special format as you want. 1. After clicking the Form>Text Field button to add the text field, please double click it to open the Properties window. 2. In the Format tab, you can chooses a number category as you want. 3. If you choose Special, then you will get more types: Zip Code For a five-digit U.S. postal code. Zip Code + 4 For a nine-digit U.S. postal code. Phone Number For a ten-digit telephone number. Social Security Number For a nine-digit U.S. Social Security Number. Hyphens are inserted automatically after the third and fifth digits. Arbitrary Mask Changes the format category to Custom and makes another text field available, in which you can type a custom format. Use this option to specify which types of characters the user can enter in any given position, and how the data displays in the field. A Accepts only letters (A–Z, a-z). X Accepts spaces and most printable characters, including all characters available on a standard keyboard and ANSI characters in the ranges of 32–126 and 128–255. O The letter “O” accepts alphanumeric characters (A–Z, a-z, and 0–9). 9 Accepts only numeric characters (0–9). For example, a mask setting of AAA--p#999 accepts the input BOE--p#767. A mask setting of OOOOO@XXX accepts the input vad12@3Up.
  15. Poor Signature Module

    Hello. I am on the road often and the Electronic or Digital Signature portion is important for me to return signed documents while on the road. The Mac app is pretty good but lags behind in one key element for me. The "signature module" of the app for creating or modifying electronic representations of your signature is very cumbersome and hard to use. I tried all the different options to try and get a good representation of my signature to keep on file but I was not able to achieve a credible one. Tried the photo and the file options but it just copies a photo that is very hard to place on a document. Used the mouse/keypad with a special stylus and after about 20 tries I gave up. I reference, I also have the PDFExpert app and although PDF Elements has more features, the "Signature Module" or feature of this app is far superior and I could achieve very good results and document placements for my electronic signature
  16. MAC & Windows licensing

    Hi, i have some doubts about pdfelement's licensing. If I will buy one professional license, that license will work on only one device, or in two devices, MAC & Windows? Best regards.
  17. I am evaluating PDFElement as a solution for inserting image files into PDFs. So far I like what I am seeing. However, I am having trouble preserving the aspect ratio of photos when I add them. The documentation says I should hold shift key while adjusting the size, but that does not work for me. Instead, what happens is either: 1. If I depress the shift key *after* clicking on a size-adjustment handle, it is as if my shift key was never pressed. The aspect ration changes freely. 2. If I depress the shift key *before* clicking on a size-adjustment handle, the handles disappear and the image is frozen. (A blue outline appears around the image, but there are no size-adjustment handles, and the image cannot be moved.) I have tried also option and control, but these seem to have no effect. Please advise how I can resize a photo without changing its aspect ratio.
  18. I have PDF Element Pro for Mac version 6.4.4 but it doesn't work for OCR, the only thing I need it for. I am running the latest OS X 10.13.3 High Sierra. Are they compatible? Does anybody know?

  22. Registration Failure

    I registered my copy of PDFElement a couple of days ago, and it seemed to be working well. When I opened it today, I received this error dialog box: It reads: "Note: Connection timeout, please try again." I clicked "OK" to dismiss the dialog box, assuming that it was a simple glitch, but when I tried to save some PDF changes, I found that my copy of PDFElement had become unregistered. When I attempted to re-register PDFElement using my licensed email and registration code, the "Registered Successfully" web page was opened; however, in the app itself, the same error dialog was presented again, and the application remained unregistered. My network connection is very fast, and working just fine for all other communications. At this point, I'm completely stuck, and I find this behavior ridiculous and infuriating. The app shouldn't immediately un-register itself when it can't contact a server somewhere, and it shouldn't rely on such a fragile registration mechanism. Please advise how to proceed. Thanks.
  23. Hi community, desperate for some advice, have tried everything I could think off already! I want to make my PDF fillable for my clients, and I want them to be able to write 10 lines or so. I provide them with an exercise, than ask them to reflect below. Simple as that...only it isn't in PFD element, for me at least! Because even if I click 'multiple lines' and make the text form big, all my clients get to fill in is one line. What can I do? Grateful for any tips!

  25. So everything was working well when I was editing my PDF. The font was the same, it looked the exact same, but after I saved the document and emailed it to myself I was able to see everything I edited. Every word and number I touched was darker than the original font. I was running late for work so the only thing I could do was go back and edit other items to make it all blend. Now that's a waste of money if every time I edit a document it's still going to show my edits and not make the PDF blend like the original. Any suggestions??
