Acrobat Distiller 8 Professional

Sep 10, 2007 12:17 AM

Hello,

We have the following problem. We have a folder with several MS Word documents. When an MS Word document is created in a specific folder we want them to convert automatically into a PDF document.

Acrobat Distiller 8 Professional have the "watched folder" feature but can only read .ps documents. Is there any solution (maybe another Adobe program) to convert our MS word documents automatically into PDF documents?

Kind regards,

Steven De Smet

    If you do not have Distiller Server, this forum is probably not going
    to be able to help you very much.

    If you are looking for a server solution (bear in mind Acrobat is
    not for server use), look at LiveCycle PDFGenerator.

    I don't know its feature set in detail, but there is a separate forum
    for it (go back up to LiveCycle at the top level).

    If it's not Distiller Server you have the wrong forum, sorry. Maybe
    you need to try the Acrobat Windows forum. Be sure to say the exact
    version of Distiller you have, the version of Windows, and when you
    get this error message.

    I already did. You need to try the Acrobat Windows forum.

    > It's a windows 2003 server.

    That sounds a problem. Acrobat is not for use on a server. This is why
    there is a Distiller Server product.

    I looked into your post in the Acrobat Windows forum.

    You seem to have accidentally added this to another topic, rather than
    creating a new post with an accurate subject that describes your
    problem. The subject is VERY important, as people use this to decide
    whether to read your message.

    Worse, you added to a thread with the title "Acrobat 8: Extracting &
    Printing Highlighted Sentences", which really has no connection at
    all.

    You also perhaps missed the adivice I gave you "be sure to say the
    exact version of Distiller you have, the version of Windows, and when
    you get this error message." This is important too.

    I recommend you make a new post bearing these points in mind. Good
    luck,

    That is wrong. You had a helpful respoinse as follows "Helpdesk: What
    does your question have to do with the desired feature requested? It
    looks like a question that should be asking in the regular forum as a
    new topic, not here. You need to explain exactly what steps you took
    to get the response you got. As your question stands I have no clue
    what you are talking about - Trying to print, trying to open
    Distiller, or something else."

    Please read replies. If you do not, people are likely to ignore your
    messages completely.

    Since upgrading to Version 8 I get an empty PDF job when I run my batch file to convert multiple postscript files to one PDF. The batch file format I'm using is:
    /prun { /mysave save def
    dup = flush
    RunFile
    clear cleardictstack
    mysave restore
    } def
    (C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile.ps) prun
    (C:\\MyFolder\\MyFile2.ps) prun

    Any solutions to this problem?

    Use the command line option /F of Distiller.

    Each string in the text can have running number. This number should be wriiten at the left margin.

    Change the PS file or generate the number in the original document and create a new PS file.
